I've tried a lower chair, its better, but the cushion still moves a bit.
I found some sandpaper that has a rubber backing, stapled it on and its way better, ugly as heck, but its working for now.
I was actually planning to put the sandpaper side down, but figured I would try the rubber first.
I've also seen Kling On non slip rubber pads that are supposed to go on the instrument, but I think would work on the Dynarette.

Why doesn't the manufacturer figure something out? Oasis came out with a clone which is really no better, same issues.

My Dynarette has a little tag, on the lower edge nearest the player. I use this to tether the support to my belt buckle with a shoelace. You might want to reinforce this small piece of material somehow, should you adopt that way of securing the cushion. The buckle will need to be offset left of centre, as the thing sits on your left leg. Your only concern might be walking onstage with the Dynarette on your hip, but it's function will be obvious as soon as you sit down, tune up and play.

I used Dynarette in the past and I sewed a rubber material under it, so it didn't slip. I liked it very much, but the biggest was not big enough for me. So I changed to other supports. Later on a changed completely my posture in a way Dynarette doesn't work (more vertical, kind of Galbraith's style).

Try a De Oro support. More secure and more adjustable - you won't go back.

I use a Dynarette all the time and found out that a piece of chamois cloth between your trousers and Dynarette works like a miracle.

Or you could wear lederhosen?

For me, the issue with ANY of these supports is that my lower leg segment (knee-to-ankle) is short. Therefore when I am seated, my upper leg segment (hip-to-knee) has a slight downward angle, so things invariably slide and slip. My only solution has been to ALSO use a footstool at the lowest setting, so that the hip-to-knee segment remains on a slightly upward slope. Otherwise it's a futile fight against gravity.

I use a Dynarette support for about half of my practice time. I like it... for the variety it offers in sitting position, the clean stage-black-non-mechanical look of it... and no suction cups... even more-so the functional aspects, though like David Norton, I have to arrange things so my thigh is angled slightly upwards at the knee (for me it's about chair height)... or else all that functionality slips away.

Definitely try something other than a Dynarette.... there are much better option available now (seconding the DeOro suggestion.)
