15 Homemade Vac Hanger
Well, maybe a few dollars more if you don’t have any of the parts lying around. This is the 3rd one of it’s kind that I made, each with slight improvements. I am really happy with how this latest version works so I thought I’d share.
The main body is made out of a fish tank cleaning tube that can be picked up at most dollar stores for 5 to 10 bucks. I am hanging 10 lbs with it now and fulcrum hanging up to 8 lbs. There’s zero issues at this weight and I don’t think 15lbs will be a problem. Easy on, easy off and very comfortable.
I do not use any tape on the glans so I only wear it for 12 to 15 minute sets. I am not sure tape would work and I’ve been too lazy to try. The first half of each set I do fulcrums with 5 lbs, 7.5 lbs or 8 lbs depending on the intensity of the bending, then let it hang with 10 lbs for the balance of time. I do get some fluid build up, but it goes away with a dozen or so jelqs and a few minutes time. By the time I’ve warmed back up for the next set the fluid is gone and color is 90 to 100% back to normal.
Here’s the parts list:
1. Fish tank cleaning tube - it’s the middle of the most common sizes I’ve seen. Probably 1 5/8 to 1 3/4” in diameter.
2. Standard 20” bicycle tube
3. A couple of zip ties
4. A little bit of caulk
5. Electrical tape
6. Fish tank check valve
7. 5 or 6 inches of cord
8. Some creativity to make the check valve connect to the cleaning tube’s nipple
I’ve been think about rebuilding the 1st one I made. If I do, I’ll put together a step by step.
