Hi, When I seen the clip its the same sort of clip used by Convatec. I think they may be trying to reproduce the same product on a budget.

I've tried and like a number of other products of this company; i.e., wipes and prep. I have a problem with clips since I have arthritis and my fingers don't work as well as they should to fasten the clamp, so unless they come out with a velcro closure, I'll stick with other brands like Coloplast and their line of appliances. Fortunately, I do have medical insurance that covers most, but not all, of my ostomy supplies. I'm saving my pennies for the StomaGuard - not yet covered by Medicare, but they've applied. I'm getting a prescription and will forward to my secondary insurance and hope they pick up the tab. If not, I'll buy it out of pocket. It seems like a very good product for bicycling and, as you pointed out, seat belts (and pets that consider themselves lap dogs).

Hi John,

The included clips are pretty standard, basic clips. I've seen others that are much more robust and I may cover them in another article. I'm sure other brands use identical (or near identical) clips as the ones on these Securi-T pouches.

They list Securi-T as a supplier, but they aren't the parent company or anything - it's bizarre that there's no company history or anything on the Securi-T page!

Hi Lee,

Belt loops are more common on two-piece systems or one-piece convex appliances, so I'm not surprised they are missing from these pouches.

Hi Nancy,

Yeah, I really prefer velcro closures to clips, but I do believe clips make the appliance much cheaper to manufacture, so I'm not surprised they use them here.

Stick with Coloplast if that's been working for you, and good luck getting the stoma guard!

I respect you and appreciate you trying new products so you can share with us. Can be a messy business judging from your last photos.
I'm one year in with my ileo and have tried very few products. I switched to a two piece
Sensura Mio by Coloplast shortly after I got back from hospital after reading one of your reviews. I wear it with sideways with a sleath belt after reading your reviews. I'm happy with where I'm at. Thanks Eric

Hi John, there certainly is a risk with trying all of these products, but I'm happy to take on those risks for the greater good =)

I love your reviews and if it wasn’t for the information you share I would have had a much harder time becoming an ostomate .
I sent for samples and they sent me a pr-cut wafer with a little collar . I really liked this product however I did not care for the clip pouch . They did send me a free pouch cover and these extra twist tie things . I could not find where they are sold in Canada .

Hi Eric, It was revealed recently that Genairex/ "Securi-T USA" products are being made by Hollister. This was stated in a UOAA Discussion Board post at https://www.uoaa.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=26773&start=15 and also in a news story at http://www.hmenews.com/article/peco-medical-drops-out Moreover, the Securi-T website at https://www.securitusa.com/ displays a Hollister copyright notice at the bottom of every page now.

In effect, "Securi-T USA" is now a line of lower priced products made by Hollister but sold without the Hollister name.

This can provide a useful option for some ostomates. For example, Hollister recently discontinued a line of 2pc products called "CenterPointLock" (CPL). Ostensibly, Hollister would like to migrate all CPL users to their "New Image" products. However, a viable option for some CPL users might be to switch to "Securi-T USA" 2pc products, which are said to be very similar to the discontinued CPL products.

Hi Eric, you expressed concern about the lack of company info on their website. I can provide some info, based on research using the "WayBackMachine" at www.archive.org which keeps "snapshots" of old versions of websites. Most of the following comes from old versions of www.genairex.com which is the URL displayed on your photo of the stoma measuring guide. Incidentally, regarding names, "Genairex" is the company name, while "Securi-T" and "Securi-T USA" are trademarks used as product names.

The Genairex company seems to have started in year 2000. See some of their early history at https://web.archive.org/web/20040610183255/http://www.genairex.com/news.html including a statement dated Nov 2002 which includes "Genairex is not owned by or associated with any of the leading brand manufacturers, major wholesalers or distributors." See also some later history at https://web.archive.org/web/20130926152812/http://genairex.com/news.html and still more recent history at https://web.archive.org/web/20141101083343/http://genairex.com/category/news-and-updates/ This includes a statement dated January 2014 titled "A New Era Begins."

Their Jan 2014 "New Era Begins" statement asserted that their products are American made, and was accompanied by a change in product name from "Securi-T" to "Securi-T USA". I'm guessing this is also when Genairex began their relationship with Hollister to make products for them - which was, of course, a major departure from the Nov 2002 statement that "Genairex is not owned by or associated with any of the leading brand manufacturers." Notice, by the way, that Hollister is the only one of the major manufacturers that's still US-based. (ConvaTec was US-based when they were part of Bristol-Myers Squibb, but that hasn't been true since 2008; their headquarters are in Reading, UK now. Coloplast is based in Denmark. B. Braun is based in Germany.) Also note that your photos of the Securi-T pouch clip show it's a Hollister clip. (I know because I've saved some clips from the days when I used to use clipped pouches. It's true that ConvaTec sells similar curved clips, but there are subtle differences, and this is a Hollister clip, not a ConvaTec clip.)

In 2016, the URL www.genairex.com was modified to redirect to www.securitusa.com where, as you've pointed out, the website contains no company info. The relationship between Genairex and Hollister was probably kept secret through about the end of 2018. But it's obvious now, as the pages of www.securitusa.com display Hollister copyright notices and phone number. It's possible that, by now, Hollister has purchased the Genairex company completely, but I haven't found any announcement of such a merger.
