littmann lightweight II

    Hello,
    Just got this stethescope and I love how much clearer I can hear things, but I can't get the dang thing to stay on my neck! One side always slides off and I keep losing it and droping in places I would rather not. So, what tricks do you use to keep your lopsided stethescope in place?

    My Littman tends to do the same thing so I leave it sitting on my portable computer 1/2 the time. I did buy one of those waist clips that held my stethoscope and it worked - if you dont mind having it clipped on your waistband.

    I wear mine like a necklace. Just clip the bell into your ear pieces(if that makes any sense at all) and it stays put and is comfy.

    Alibaba... haha! That's what my friends at work call me!

    Anyway... I don't like to wear my scope around my neck. The oils on your skin can make the tubing hard, and I've seen some scopes that won't even straighten out anymore d/t all the oils. I wear mine just over one shoulder with the bell on my back and the ear pieces on my front. It usually stays put there.

    Hello fellow Alibaba!
    I picked up that name very early in life and it seems to have stuck. I still haven't mastered the magically opening doors yet though!

    I'm one of those ones that wraps the earpieces around my neck & leaves the bell in my pocket. No falling off.
