Corveen do different size sheaths using an adhesive that stay on well I found, In fact they adhere so well you have to trim your curlies first or it hurts when you remove the sheathes.

Yes, brand used had not mentioned when I posted. It's been the best part of 10 years since I last used mine and maybe the type of adhesive has been changed. I found Conveen very obliging. My problem was that the bag slipped down my leg gradually so this would pull on the connecting tube taking up the slack and then pulling on the sheath. They provided both a belt and a suitably sized elasticated stocking which when used together helped greatly. Suggest you speak with Conveen to check whether they can help you.

PS.  If the bag is emptied earlier there is clearly less weight to pull the bag down, if that is indeed part of your problem.

Thanks bud,thats what I found plus it gradually slipped off during the day? They are a great company to deal with.

Quite right about a good company to deal with, I swapped and changed quite a few times. Are you using the longer length sheath, they attach futher towards the body end of the penis. The shorter ones can stick together and the urine goes out the wrong end of the sheath. Although designed for catheters with a bit of improvisation a stat lock device may help support the bag.

Thanks Chris
