Alternative T:slim Clip

Just wanted to pass on some product success for those of you who, like me, don’t like the extra bulk of the T:slim T:clip. I found a hinged-clip that can be attached to the back of the T:slim with 3M adhesive, and is much lower profile than what Tandem currently offers. They’re cheap at about $4 a piece, yet seem sturdy and grasp onto clothing well.

It might be… as long as the clip clears the bump caused by the larger cartridge… Im gonna try it…

Huh. Why the heck didn’t I think of doing something like that as a “pretty much good enough” way to go when the clip broke off the “holster” Medtronic supplies for its 722 & 723 Paradigm pumps. I may still try doing something like that if I haven’t thrown the dang thing out in an atypical & futile attempt to “tidy up”.

I looked around, but, of course, all I found for the moment was …

I’m not sure this particular clip with clear the bump. Do you know the measurement on it by chance?
If this particular clip doesn’t work for it, I would suggest you check out It’s the same company that makes the one pictured. They have several different designs with some of them, such as the racheting clips, being a little bulkier and more likely to clear the bump.

Funny enough, I was brainstorming ways to break the clip off the t:clip holster! I did see someone on these boards in the past use their old non-broken medtronic clip. I think they just added a few glue dots to the inside of the clip to grip the pump better.

Good luck finding it! On the plus side, not having it may mean you’re not a total diabetes hoarder :slight_smile:
