cable stretching device
I want to throw something into the giant R&D Department that is Thunders.
After seeing DLD’s Power Assist, RB’s Power Stretcher, and other stretching devices I started noodling around with a 7 foot Krytonite bike lock cable I had down in the garage. To do V stretches, I sit on the edge of my chair, push my flaccid dick through one of the loops and let the rest of the cable hang towards the floor, where I use my feet to pull it. When pulling my dick up with one hand, and pulling the cable loop down on top of my ligs with the other, the leverage is really intense. By changing the angle of my dick, or the angle of the cable, it hits slightly different parts of my dick.
The cable works fine too in the A stretch direction, by just switching the direction of the cable and pulling up instead of down. I can also do side stretches by pulling the cable one direction as I pull my dick the other way. Again, I can change the angle of my dick or the cable and it stretches my dick in a slightly different way.
Since I can’t leave well enough alone, I went to Home Despot Monday and bought a 3 foot length of quarter inch, plastic covered cable (79 cents a foot). I then created loops on both ends using duct tape on one end and two zip ties on the other, just to see what would work best. I dipped both ends of the cable in that Plasti-Dip stuff I have around from making a pump. Then I took tied a loop of braided nylon rope on to one of the cable loops, and put a piece of armacell pipe insulation I have around for my power jelq (canning jar lifter!) on one of the loops to soften things — although it hasn’t been necessary.
The result works very well. I can vary the length of the rope and use the device sitting up or lying down. Everything cost less than $10. The Krytonite cable was working fine for me, but I wanted to make my own version because the loops of the Krytonite are relatively small, and I wanted a design that can accommodate bigger dickheads. (No offense.)
Anyway, I’m sharing this just to plant it in the collective conscience here. Maybe someone can improve on the design. I don’t think it’s quite there yet. I guess a piece of rope, with a little cushion, could do virtually the same thing as the cable, but I think the relative rigidity of the cable helps. At a quarter inch in diameter, it may be too thin, so I’m going to see how it feels with some foam wrap to thicken it up a little.
I plan to combine using the cable device and my trusty two foot piece of half inch diameter PVC pipe for my stretching routine.
My home made device is pictured here. The Elmo, Power Puff Girl, Charmander and beer bottle are all there for scale. The Kryptonite bike lock cable I use is the second item down on this page: http://www.kwiklocks.com/kryptonite…ity_cables.html
