I constantly clip and unclip. I am on day 6 with my flange (thank you Peggy for your awesome secrets) and I have gone through 8 bags in those days (6 of the bags were closed in so I was that had to clipped and unclipped from the flange to empty). I love Hollister New Image just for this reason. I tried Coloplast Assura because their 2-pc system is very comfortable. However, all of my clipping and unclipping wore out the flange and after 2 days I could not get anything to clip with a good seal! I actually tried Coloplast Assura 3 times and each time I had the same problem.
So...clip, unclip, and be happy!
