BTC Comfort at Last!
Inspired by talk of CaptnHook’s “Captn’s Bench” but never having seen it, I set out yesterday to construct a chair that was suitable for comfortably hanging BTC for long periods of time while working at my computer.
Comfort is important, especially as I’m planning to log hours upon hours of hang time. Perhaps even more important is the need to effectively multi-task.
Here’s what I did. I went to Staples and bought the chair shown in the attachment FoldingChair.jpg. A slightly padded, folding chair. It was about $23. You can get the unpadded version for under $9, but I don’t recommend it.
I took it home, sat on it, thought about where my balls sat on the chair, and mentally marked the spot. Then came the fun part.
I pulled off the upholstered seat cover. This was easy to do with a long screwdriver. The seat cover was attached to a steel seat underneath using push-on fasteners. These disengaged, while still holding together, after a firm yank. The seat cover had a Masonite layer, with foam and fabric on top.
The steel of the seat was thin enough to submit to my sheet metal snippers, and I went to work removing metal. I cut out a bullet-shaped hole, with the round part of the “bullet” pointing toward the back of the seat. The top part of the bullet reached almost to the very front of the seat. Overall the area I removed was about 4.5” wide by about 7 or 8” long. This area was a little bigger than what I needed for my Bib Hanger and unit to freely hang straight down.
Next (safety first), I went to work with my vice grips to fold over the edges of cut sheet metal, to round all the edges. When I was finished, there were no sharp edges remaining that I could cut myself on. I covered the turned over edges and any rough spots with duct tape. See MetalSeat.jpg for a really bad drawing of the reworked seat.
Then I went to work on the seat cover. I placed the seat cover lightly over the steel seat, and drew a pencil shape inside the metal cutout region on the underside of the seat cover. The pencil marks were 1/4 to 1/2” within the edges of the metal opening, which I hope will provide even more protection from any sharp edges.
I cut through the Masonite layer with a Dremel tool, and removed a similar “bullet” of Masonite. I sanded down the cut edges of the Masonite. Then, with a scissors, I cut the padding and fabric lengthwise straight down the middle. I also made a cross-wise cut through the fabric at the front and back of the seat, to approximate the shape of a trap door. Then I put the seat cover back on by engagin the press-on fasteners. The appearance of the finished seat is shown in another really bad drawing, SeatCover.jpg
I think this chair is very suitable for the job. Importantly, it has not cross-support in the front, which means the weight has nothing to bang into.
I tried this out yesterday, and I was very pleased with the results. It’s very comfortable, and working while hanging is a breeze. Just don’t forget that you are attached the chair!
To operate (if that’s the right word), sit in the chair, wrap and apply hanger. Drop the attached hanger down through the trap door. Reach under the front of the chair and apply your weights. Then just sit back and let the weight do the work.
If I put my feet under the chair, I find I can easily change the angle by pushing the weights around. A very good BTC stretch can be achieved by pushing the weights back a bit with my feet. I can also easily increase or decrease the weight, by either pushing down on the weight or pulling up.
If you look straight down while the weight is attached, you can easily see through the “trap door” to observe or make adjustments. There’s enough room to reach straight through. I also found that the space in the trap door in front of the hanger is just the right size for holding my rice sock. I just kind of stuff it down there, and the edges of the door hold the rice sock firmly against my ligs.
Please don’t believe for a second that this is safe! THIS DESIGN COMES WITH NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND! If you make this chair and use it, be prepared to take necessary precautions to prevent your dick from being pulled off! Please be careful!
Now, if the penis fairy would only grant me one wish …
