One of the down-sides of the automatic insertion device. If the 
inserter needle in the SofSet is slightly bent when you do the 
insertion, this gets magnified when it is plunged into you. You must 
carefully inspect that the needle is perfectly perpendicular to the 
base of the set prior to insertion. Leave the loose protective sheath 
on the set when putting it into the inserter, eyeball it and 
straighten if necessary. Probably 99% of them are fine, it's the 1% 
that get you.
