Re: [IP] To pinch or not to pinch?



I'm on Insets right now, but have been on Quickset, Sof-Set and Mios. Never
pinched, always had some form of tape down as I am allergic to the adhesive
around the cannula. I found when pinching I messed up the placement of tape.

Used the inserters for Quick-Set Sof-Set.
