- Important Information
Sometimes people can overbalance if their trousers are around their ankles by leaning too far forward after going to the toilet. The Dressing Clips can help solve this problem as the trousers and underpants can be pulled up without bending over. Practise opening the clip to make sure your fingers are strong enough to open the spring. One hand may be stronger than the other and it may be easier using both hands to open the clip.
First the Upper Clip is attached to the person’s shirt or jumper. Make sure the material is not touching the skin, so the skin is not pinched by the Clip. The upper clip can be placed inside the front opening of a man’s shirt. It can also be attached on the front of the shirt or shirt pocket. Before taking the lower clothes off, attach the Lower Clip to the waist band of the trousers. It may also help to attach any underwear at the same time. This should be done while the person is standing in front of the toilet prior to sitting down. Make sure the clip is giving a good grip before lowering them down to your ankles. Then lower the trousers to the floor and sit on the toilet.
After standing up from the toilet, gently pull the connecting cord to pull the underpants and trousers up, until they can be held by hand. Do not pull fast or with a sudden jerk, as the Clip may be pulled off the waist band. Be careful if the trousers are heavy denim jeans or cotton material, particularly if there are some heavy objects in the pockets. When pulling them up make sure you are not standing on the trousers. They will be eaiser if your legs are not too far apart, but once you can reach the waist band if you open your legs a little it can help them from falling down again.
When the trousers are within reach, only release the underpants from the clip. This allows them to be pulled correctly into position. The shirt can be tucked down ready for the trousers to be pulled fully up. After the shirt has been tucked in and the waist band of the trousers is done up, the Lower Clip can be undone and then the Top Clip is undone. The Clips can be kept in your pocket or near the toilet for next time.
