I made the hanger with the rulers to grab the sides. I started with 2 1/2 pounds and got up to 10 pounds. Now I have a problem.
I can’t get passed 10 pounds. Even now when I do 10 pounds sometimes I have the same problem.
1 - When I wrap the shaft, I have loose skin so I seem to pinch some of the skin in the wrap, even when I pull the skin back. I think I’m getting so much loose skin because of the “smashing” of the shaft between the rulers. This pinching of the skin causes pain. I’ve even tightened the grip so much just to keep the device from slipping that one of the rulers (6” ruler) broke.
Q: Any suggestions?
2 - I saw when I started a device you can buy that basically is a rope or equivalent that ties around the knee and the other end attached to the head. I can’t find that link now. I wouldI would give it a try wearing it while I go to school and work.
Q: Does anyone know the link I am refering to and has anyone tried it? Does it work good?
3 - I looked everywhere for shower caps. I finally found them at ralphs but they weren’t latex. I tried latex gloves then cut to the recommended size after cleaning, I had the same problem as I mentioned in #1 and it slid off. It wouldn’t hold.
Q: Any thoughts on this one?
4 - I had a thought. The fingers of the latex glove I think are small enough that it would grab the head well and hold. But, it is like trying to put a condom on a flacid penis, you can’t roll it on. I thought if I can make a device that can open the finger part enough, I can slide the head and shaft into it easily, then close the finger part with that tool and slide it away from the shaft. I think that may be that start of a good idea.
Q: Any thoughts?
