Clamp, and Lubricant:
Insert the hose on the enema bag,, slide the clamp on the hose,, and the nozzle or rectal tube onto the other end of the hose. Lubricate the tip so that it will slide easily past the anus into the rectum . We recommend a water based lubricant because they are rubber and condom safe and this may come in handy later. If you need more lubrication and don't have any problem with a lubricant that is harmful to condoms or rubber, then petroleum jelly (Vaseline) will work better. (Super Salve Surgilube)
