With the exception of the use of paste, my products and system is pretty much just like what Blueglass described.
BCT is definitely one of the best products in my arsenal. The Brava Strips are also invaluable as I also cut the tape off of my favorite appliance [Convatec Moldable] due to sensitivity to the taped border.
I warm the Eakin and my wafer with my hairdryer prior to their application and then also after everything has been applied.
My wear time also increased when I added the use of my "gadget" which is merely a PVC cap that I got at Lowe's or Home Depot. Mine is 1 & 1/4 inch and was like 65 cents. It helps with adding firm and steady even pressure around the stoma after applying the wafer. I alternate using it with the hairdryer a couple of times once my appliance has been set. Here is a website with a picture of my "gadget". It comes in different sizes.www.pvcfittingsonline.com/447-020-2-schedule-40-pvc-cap.html
