Bard Cunningham Penile Clamp

Brand/Manufacturer: BARD INC

Bard Cunningham Penile Clamp is used for effective control of enuresis (bed wetting), stress incontinence or dribbling of urine in males of all ages. Cunningham Clamp is a hinged, stainless steel frame supporting two soft foam rubber pads and a locking device. The user is supposed to place the penis between the two foam pads and the hinged clamp is squeezed shut. A slight pressure on the urethral canal on the lower side of the penis will prevent any leakage. The required pressure is achieved by the hump in the under part of the Cunningham Penile Clamp. It can be adjusted to fit comfortably.

More About Cunningham Clamp

How To Find The Right Size Clamp?

The Cunningham Incontinence Clamp is available in 3 sizes: large, regular, or juvenile. To find the correct size, you will need to measure the area around the shaft of your penis while compressing it slightly.
To do this, gently compress the middle of your shaft with your thumb and forefinger. Apply slight pressure as if stopping the flow of urine. Then, measure the area around your shaft using a tape measure.
  • If your shaft is 3 inches, you will need the large clamp.
  • If your shaft is 2 inches, you will need the regular clamp.
  • If your shaft is 1½ inches, you will need the juvenile clamp.

Applying Cunningham Penile Clamp

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly. Dry them with a clean cloth or paper towel.
  2. Place your penis between the 2 foam pads on the clamp. The clamp should be halfway down the shaft of your penis.
  3. Tighten the clamp to compress your urethra. The large and regular clamps each have 5 settings that adjust the pressure on your urethra. Use the ratchet catch to adjust the pressure. To release the catch, press inward on both of the spring wire loops. The juvenile clamp is not adjustable.
  4. Shape the upper foam pad with your fingers to help it fit better and feel more comfortable.
  5. To urinate, release your clamp.
  6. After you are finished urinating, put your clamp back on to prevent dribbling. If possible, place the clamp on a slightly different part of your shaft.

Instructions for Proper Use

  • Release your clamp every 1 to 2 hours to allow urine to flow out. This is important in order to avoid urinary tract infections.
  • Every 2 hours, move the clamp up or down your shaft. Do not keep it clamped for more than 2 hours in the same place.
  • Do not use the clamp at night while you are sleeping. Use adult urinary pads for leakage.
  • Make sure that your clamp is not set too tightly on your penis. This will help you maintain blood circulation and prevent skin irritation. It is important that you have proper sensation in your penis so that you can feel anything that is painful or irritating.
  • After repeated usage and proper maintenance, inspect the product for signs of deterioration or damage like cracking, discoloration or separation of foam.

Cunningham Penile Clamp Cleaning

  1. Hand wash your clamp in a sink with mild soap and warm water. Do not use bleach, detergent, or hot water on your clamp.
  2. Rinse your clamp thoroughly in cool, clean water.
  3. Gently squeeze the foam to get rid of excess water.
  4. Let your clamp dry in a cool place away from excess heat or direct sunlight. Do not put your clamp in the washer or dryer or use a blow dryer on it.


  • Federal (U.S.A.) law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
  • Cunningham Penile Clamp contains natural rubber latex which may cause allergic reactions.

What exactly is the difference between the 2" and the 3" products? Is the distance between the top and bottom of the clamp different (the parallel arms) or is there a difference in foam thickness?

How much urine will they hold back before they need to be "opened"?

Does the foam stay dry ?

Do they work well at night?

Jim Nye - 4/6/2015 11:15:00 PM

Thank you for reaching out to us. The Cunningham Clamp uses the smallest amount of pressure possible to stop the flow of urine. The pad goes around the penis and will remain dry. 

The device can be washed with a mild soap / water, then allowed to air dry. These are typically used for daytime use. It is possible the clamp could pull on the skin if a person moves around while sleeping.
