*Ring may be optional. It helps seal between stoma and Cut-Out.  The opening in ring MUST BE slightly smaller than Cut-Out to avoid trapping fluids.
For installing the ring, a heated Tool is very beneficial. The thicker ring needs more heat or longer time pressed.

**Tape Border (Hollister) is the last step.  The separated tape border helps smooth attachment, and it allows applying pressure with the Tool about 20 seconds sooner.
