Making a reinforced hole for a G-Tube for a TLSO body sock

Lately I have had a run on TLSO’s  for patients that have a G-tube.  Here is a little trick that I do with the body socks.  I take the silicone from Coyote Design and put a “blob” about the size of a 50 cent piece and then quickly use a rectangle of plastic and push the silicone into the sock.  I then use a half round punch to make a nice long oval hole.  Parents seem to really appreciate a hole that does not fray.
