Worried about cutting off circulation with x4 extender

Worried about cutting off circulation with x4 extender

Hey, I just bought an x4 extender, and used it a few times. I was over 8 inches before but appear to have gotten a bit smaller, so I want to get my length back. I can wear the x4 under my work clothes without any issues, if I’m careful and wear my pants with a bit more room in the crotch. However, I get freaked out because I am terrified of cutting off the circulation in my penis, which could result in needing it amputated. That freaks me out extremely.

I wonder if it is ok to wear the x4 extender pointing downward (the only way to conceal it at work)? It points way down and I worry that it will cut off blood flow. Also, the head of my penis turns either red or slightly purple, and cold.

If anyone can let me know if wearing the x4 extender down all the way is dangerous, or if I am wearing it wrong, please PLEASE let me know.

I do not see any particolare reason to be worried about.

As far as you take a break every 60-90 minutes and massage a little bit to restore circulation that’s perfectly safe.

If your head turns black or white is another story but reddish and a little cold is perfectly normal.

Right, I suggest anyway to wear the device only at home for a month, before wearing it at work. Beside that the vac mod is sold on autoextender I think, it is more comfortable than the noose (which I suppose is the type of attachement you are using).

The VacExtender Mod Kit is significantly more comfortable and can be worn for several hours at a time without cutting off circulation. However, there is a risk of vacuum bruising if there is any vacuum leakage. Accordingly, I would not recommend walking around with it on for any extended period of time. The cap has to be carefully seated and and vented to avoid vacuum bruising.

Is it safe to wear it so that my penis is pointing straight down?


Can I wear it a few hours here, a few hours there, and still get good gains? Or even one hour in the morning, and one hour or two hours in the evening?

If I don’t wear it at work, I will wear it at home, but I only have a few hours of free time. My wife is there and I don’t want her to know I’m wearing one, as that would be quite embarrassing!

Is a few hours per day, or even one hour per day, still a way to make some good, big gains?

I averaged between 3 to 4 hours a day over three years and gined about 3/4”. I tend to doubt that less than 3 hours a day would be very effective. I get a lot of time in at night next to my sleeping wife (watching tv with earphones) and while watching tv at night in loose fitting pants (sweats or basketball shorts).

1 hour per day will probably require a lot of time to give gains. On average I think 1,000 hours are needed to get half inch erect length gain. Better manual exercises then. You can’t wear the device on jthe ob if you don’t have a lot of privacy and you aren’t much experienced with the device.

Can I wear it for like an hour in the morning, and then a few hours in the evening? Will that give good gains? Or does it all have to be at once, like one period of several consecutive hours? If I could do an hour here, two hours there, per day, that would be more convenient for me.

Using an extender what really matters is the number of hours spent with it on.

You can split the time as you like.

I gained 1/4 inch during the first 6 weeks of wearing the x4. I wore it 4-6 hours a day. After that the gains have been very slow because I have only worn it sporadically since. It’s hard to stay motivated when you aren’t seeing any results. I have spent between $300-$400 on the extender and spare parts. I bought my extender before the new 58 way quad support strap. I really don’t want to spend anymore. Recently I began wearing the x4 again. I started on 04-18-14 I have worn it 162 hrs. As of 06-28-14 for an average of 2.3 hrs. A day. The only time I can see a noticeable difference is when I take Viagra or Cialis and use a cloth ruler, which is maybe 1/4-1/2 a centimeter.

If I could give any advice it would be to just find what is most comfortable for you (it took me a month) and don’t go over 4-6 hrs a day for the first month and I would wear it at home till you get used to it. When I started I had the same concerns about circulation and to be honest it was painful to wear, 45 mins was the max I could wear it. I didn’t move too much because it hurt and it would fall off. Now I wear the x4 with just the “noose” harness without needing a foam comfort pads which was the most painful when I started and I can wear it well over an hour at a time. I can walk around the house and do stuff that doesn’t require bending at the waist or squatting.

Keep us posted about your progress. I would be interested to know if the “58 Way Quad Support System” would be worth the investment.

X4 Labs Extender Tips

Hi Everyone,

Good discussion. Generally speaking you should not be feeling an extreme amount of discomfort wearing your X4 Labs Penis Extender. Sometimes, first time users tend to be over ambitious and apply too much tension or simply fastened their penises in too tightly, which of course can result in loss of circulation. To get the most out of your extender both safely and comfortable you must understand that penile traction therapy is meant as a gradual method of penis enlargement. Ideally, your penis should feel secured in the extender and all you should experience is a gentle tug along the shaft of your penis.

Here are some quick tips:

- It is recommended to wear your extender between 4-6 hours per day.

- Do not be discouraged by not seeing visible early results. This is in no way a miracle cure. You don’t expect to sign up to a gym and then be buffed up the next day do you? Same principle here.

- Wearing your X4 Labs Penis Extender while you sleep is not recommended as there is no real way to ensure your penis does not become erect overnight.

- You can wear your extender in fragmented sessions throughout the day. Often it is difficult to find time to devote 6 full hours straight to your extender use. In which case it is fine to break it up into 2 or 3 sessions.

- Penile traction devices are known to be more effective and yield faster results when paired with a proper penis exercise routine.

- Wearing your X4 Labs Extender at work is perfectly fine, however as another user mentioned you may want to lower the tension a bit when moving around when wearing the extender for comfort purposes (excellent point).

- The best times to wear your extender are when watching your favorite sporting event, movies, TV shows, surfing the web and yes, posting on Thunder’s Place.

On a personal level, I absolutely feel that the 58 Way Quad Support System is worth every penny. Especially if you want the peace of mind that your extender will fit well as intended with no need for any adjustments or modification. Furthermore, it allows you to try various configurations and choose which is the best for your particular size and shape way more than extenders without it. And finally, what I LOVE about it, is the larger surface area. I feel like this isn’t talked about enough. It provide added stability you just don’t get with the standard Hybrid Support System or with other extender brands.

The Quad Support System is extremely popular for a reason, and though I had no part in designing it, I am very proud to represent the same company that did. It is really one of the main things that differentiates X4 Labs from other extenders and YES I strongly suggest you order it with your extender or as an add on if you own an extender already but would like more configuration options.

Finally, here is a useful set of video tutorials outlining how to wear and adjust your X4 Labs Penis Extender:…penis-extender/

If you guys have any further questions feel free to reply to this thread or message me.

Hope this helps! Happy extending everyone!
Regards, Adam
