Tender Grips conform to the contours of the skin without pulling or stretching; and because they're tinted Tender Grips are practically invisible when worn. They're a great improvement to tape, causing virtually no discomfort or irritation even on sensitive skin. Tender Grips are Latex Free.
Each Tender Grip consists of an adhesive backing of micro porous tape that is applied to the skin. On top of the tape base is a clear fixation strap that enables you to position and secure the cannula or tubing in place. Tender Grips are moisture resistant so they'll hold securely without adhesion loss even with prolonged usage.
I was hoping that these would help to stop the rubbing I have from the canuall, on my neck when I sleep. I'm an anxious person and they annoy me. May be ok for others. Written by Verified Shopper, Shortsville2021-07-27
.Too much adhesive
The adhesive pulled my skin off. I do not recommend these. Written by Verified Shopper, Ohio2021-03-31
Don't stay in place very for long Written by Verified Shopper, 2021-03-07
Excellent product they work well for what they were designed to do my oxygen cannula stays on all night while I'm sleeping instead of falling off Written by Verified Shopper, 2020-12-09
.Seemed like a good idea
I was so excited to try this. I found it a little hard to attach the tubing. Also did not stay on as well as I thought they would. Not completely satisfied with the product but will keep working with it. Written by Verified Shopper, Minneapolis, MN2020-10-13
.Not as advertised
Did not stay in place, would not purchase again Written by Verified Shopper, 2020-08-07
.Better Sleep, Better Quality of Life
I am so, so glad I got this cannula. It stays in place and I hardly know it's there. It's soft and non-irritating. I'm sleeping much better than before. Written by Verified Shopper, 2020-06-05
.Did not work for us
My 85 year old sister has to take off oxygen to go to bathroom because hose is not long enough...wont work for her because she cant reapply when she gets in bed Written by Verified Shopper, Nursing home in MO2019-11-28
.too hard to get off
Got this for my 83 year old mother that has to wear oxygen all the time and when she gets up to visit the bathroom, she has to take the oxygen off and put it back on because the hoses aren't long enough. Therefore, these do not work for her because she has to have a mirror to reapply and they are too hard to get off and on for her shaky hands. Written by Verified Shopper, Missouri2019-11-25
I had such trouble with the tubing over my ears so they saved me. Written by Verified Shopper, 2019-03-01
These are wonderful. Perfect for sleeping with, I don’t have to worry about my canula slipping off. Love them. Written by Verified Shopper, 2019-01-20
.Not so GOOD!
Can’t figure what it’s supposed to do. Won’t stick to face not sure where to put the tubing. Written by Verified Shopper, 2018-09-23
.Love this little gizmo!
Works great and holds tuning in place overnight. Super happy in every way. A little baby oil takes off any adhesive left behind. A little hard to remove but probably wouldn't stay on all night without strong adhesive. Will buy again and again. Written by Verified Shopper, 2018-04-23
Your Tender Grip Oxygen Cannula are not Tender at all if that is what you are implying, it hurts like hell to get them off your skin, the small tabs break off if you have to reset your tubing or after washing your face, so far I have not found 1 item that has been good and will no longer order from your company (the last tender grips are now holding my tubing on the wall in my house) work real well for that purpose..

DHM Notes: Hello and thank you for your comments about Tender Grips. They are a popular product; but many people do complain that they're too hard to remove. Of course if they were too easy to remove then they might not stick enough to hold the cannulas as they are supposed to. One tip that our users recommend is to "Use a facial swab or a washcloth with a dab of mineral oil (baby oil) to remove these VERY EASILY without irritation." We hope this helps and please let us know if we can be of further assistance in the future. Take care!
.Holding o2 in place
My o2 would come off during sleep, which was extremely dangerous for me. The skin fix work extremely well,with no slippage. But, they are hard to remove when you want them off. They are also very expensive. Written by Alice Shrewsberry, 2017-03-04
.RN tip for removing these
I see a lot of people complain about removing these without irritation. Use a facial swab or a washcloth with a dab of mineral oil (baby oil) to remove these VERY EASILY without irritation. This is what nurses use in ICUs & hospitals to remove adhesive on tender skin. Acetone ( nail polish remover) on non tender areas is even better but not for babies or the elderly with crepe like skin tissue. Written by Jeanne, 2017-02-15
. Bad reaction from adhesive
they were ok when I put them on, not what I was hoping for, however, when I went to take them off, the pain was extremely high. The patches would not come off easy enough and it felt like my skin was going to tear. It caused redness and a mark for a few days. I will not be trying again. Written by Susan, 2017-01-31
These were too harsh, very difficult to remove, felt like they were tearing my facial skin. Would not order them again. Written by Connie, 2017-01-29
This is a one time use only. It doesn't stick the second time you use it. So you would need a new set every time you take your cannula off. Written by Verified Shopper, 2017-01-01
.waste of $$$$
ridiculous...should have known...does not hold and terrible on already red cheeks Written by Verified Shopper, 2016-10-26
.Too difficult to remove
These were great to hold cannula in place on our 13 month old boy but impossible to take off. It brought skin off his face on one side so much he's now bleeding. Going to search for something else today for poor guy. He's suffering enough without peeling skin off his face Written by Tom A, 2016-07-30
Highly recommend. Excellent product and excellent customer service!! Written by User, 2016-07-20
.caution when using
It does keep the cannula in place all night but getting the patches off in the am is not a pleasant experience. Patches really stick and can tear skin if not careful also leave red blotches where they attached to your skin, the glue residue is difficult to get off even after using two different soaps and rubbing alcohol. Written by Verified Shopper, 2016-04-22
.a good help, but not perfect
the "sticky stuff" that attached the product to the face did not come off the face when removing the product. Not good for sensitive skin. The product did, however, keep the cannula in place all night. Written by Terry, 2015-09-06
Excellent product and fast shipping! Written by Heather, 2014-04-21
Great service!!! Written by Ronald, 2014-03-31
.help when we thought there wasn't any
The lady who uses the tender grips is 101 yrs. old and we really needed some way to keep the oxygen canula from coming off her face. Now, even when she pulls it off her ears, it still stays in her nose thanks to the tender grips which are quite strong! Thank you for a wonderful product. Written by Mona W , 2014-03-26
.Great idea but needs a little improvement
I ordered these for my husband as he requires O2 therapy 24/7 in hopes they would help keep his cannula in place while sleeping and taking naps. They do not hold well enough as his face rubs against the pillow or his forearm tucked under his head. They also did not hold up well when he perspires. The clear overlay piece is nice but does not re-attach well if you need to remove and replace the cannula (changing shirts). The hospital gave us a roll of Band-Aid like tape the last time he was there. It was the very best product so far but I have not been able to find it anywhere. Please keep trying! Thank you. Written by Mrs. B., 2014-02-08
.I love these!
I have been having such a time with my cannulas as they seem to want to lay right up under my eye, which drives me crazy. I ordered some of these and they are solving the problem, and they aren't real obvious either. I wouldn't be embarrassed at all to wear them to go shopping or anywhere. At last the cannula stays in place and I can place it where it's more comfortable for me. I don't know how many times one can take the cannula off and then put it back on without changing these tender grip things, but I've done it once and had no problem reattaching. I wish I would have done a search for comfort items and found these much earlier. Written by Verified Shopper, 2014-02-02
.Great for infants
We have a new born with heart defect he is on oxygen. great for sensitive skin he prefers them over the nose style Written by Jeremy Y, 2013-04-01
The shipment arrived fast and was exactly as described. My preemie grandson is on a cannula and these worked perfectly. Thanks! Written by Tammy, 2013-03-30
