  • Before application wash your hands thoroughly and dry them with a clean cloth or paper towel.
  • Place the penis between the foam pads on the clamp. The clamp should be halfway down the shaft of your penis.
  • Tighten the clamp to compress your urethra.
  • The large and regular clamps each have 5 settings that adjust the pressure on your urethra.
  • Use the ratchet catch to adjust the pressure. To release the catch, press inward on both of the spring wire loops. The juvenile clamp is not adjustable.
  • You can shape the upper foam pad with the help of your fingers to help it fit better and feel more comfortable.
  • Release your clamp when you want to urinate.
  • After urinating, put your clamp back on to prevent dribbling. If possible, place the clamp on a slightly different part of your shaft.

Instructions for Proper Use

  • Release the penile clamp in every 1 to 2 hours and allow the blocked urine to flow out. This is important in order to avoid urinary tract infections.
  • Reposition the clamp every 2 hours. Do not leave the penile clamp on at the same position for very long.
  • Do not use the Cunningham penile clamp at night. You can use adult Urinary pads instead to control leakages.
  • The clamp must not be fitted too tight to your penis to help maintain the circulation of blood and prevent skin irritation. To use the penile clamp the user must have proper sensation in the penis so that he can feel anything irritating or painful.
  • Always inspect the clamp for signs of deterioration or damage like cracking, discoloration or separation of foam after repeated use.

How much urine will they hold back before they need to be "opened"?

Does the foam stay dry ?

Do they work well at night?

Jim Nye - 4/6/2015 11:15:00 PM

Thank you for reaching out to us. The Cunningham Clamp uses the smallest amount of pressure possible to stop the flow of urine. The pad goes around the penis and will remain dry. 

The device can be washed with a mild soap / water, then allowed to air dry. These are typically used for daytime use. It is possible the clamp could pull on the skin if a person moves around while sleeping.
