I use the Tender regularly. I can't answer the door problem, because I
use the Disetronic, but you are correct in your assessment of the tape
seating befor the catheter is fully inserted.
It has never cause a problem for me...I think it is just a function of
the angle at which this particular set is inserted.
One warning: don't try to correct it by going in at a steeper angle.
First, it doesn't make a difference. Second, IT HURTS!
