do you think adding a second clamp further down might spread the pressure more and make it a bit less stressful on the head?
I never had much luck in adding more clamps. But then, I advanced to lateral compression fairly quickly.
Has anyone ever gained a lot from there homemade bib hanger?
Thnx going to go to home depot for some pvc piping in the mornig so I can try. This will be first time hang wish me luck
I guess it is true that they grow them bigger in Texas.
Do you have any pictures of the bib hangers.I follow a little bit, but I don’t have my supplies yet and I was wondering what it looks like.
I want to get an inch or two out of hanging.
How long should a beginner hanger hang for?
My bib hanger I made is uncomfortable and I hang about 15 mins a day. Is this enough - or no where near?

Make a cut with a hand saw about 3-4 inches lengthwise (split it). Don’t split it in half, just cut it down one side. Then cut off about 3 inches of pipe (across).
Imagine now that you unroll the tube. With nippers, scissors, saw, whatever, cut out one quadrant of the plastic. In other words, if unrolled, measure down one side 1 1/2 inch and measure over 1/2 way across (about 2.36 inches on a 1 1/2 in ID pipe). Cut out this part.
Wrap your penis with a protective covering; Theraband, cloth etc. Wrap the pvc around the penis with the head in the cut out part. Mark on the pvc the area which will directly impact the head if the pvc is pushed forward. Trace this area on the pvc. In other words trace the head on the pvc. Cut out this area. This cut should look like a flat you unless your penis head is weird. Sometimes a small V is more comfortable. Also mark the excess pvc on one side. The plastic needs to overlap only about 1/2 inch. Also mark the areas to the left and right of the head which might be in the way. Leave the pvc below the head; I.e., the pvc that the head rests on.
Bevel all edges and corners by sanding or grinding, especially the area of contact around the head. Also be sure to bevel the edges so they will slide easily across each other.
Drill a hole in the middle of the pvc which sticks out under the head and attach an S-hook. This is what you attach the weights to (after attaching the hanger to the penis).
Put on the protective covering, and wrap the tube around your penis again. Then put the band clamp on 1/4 to 1/2 inch behind the head. The band clamp can be attached to the pvc with a recessed screw.
Do not overtighten. Experiment with the pressure versus the amount of weight you want to hang. Make sure you have enough pressure to keep the hanger from slipping off.
This hanger will allow fairly heavy weights so be careful. With this hanger, a lot of weight is still on the area behind the head. Always check the head color and check for cold or numbness. I personally have never hung more than 15 lbs. For 20 minutes with this hanger.
If it doesn’t work or feel right, just start over. The pvc is cheap.
I probably left out stuff, so if you don’t understand, ask questions.
Theraband is a rubber like material that comes in rolls 6 in wide by either 6 or 18 feet. It is used for resistance exercise in rehabilitation. It can be found at many medical supply houses or ordered off the web http://www.therapyshoppe.com/theraband.html
The device is based on flexible pvc pipe (1 1/4 inch for me), but other rubber tubing can be used.
1.Split the pipe (straight) with a hand saw for several inches.
2.Then cut a piece off about 3 inches long.
3.Go ahead and wrap your penis with the Theraband, or cloth, or anything for protection and to gather the skin.
4.Put the pvc around your penis, overlap the cut sides and mark the areas which need to be removed; Give plenty of room for behind the top of the head. Only about 1 1/2 inch needs to wrap around the penis. The bottom of the head rests on the remainder.
5.Then drill a hole in the end of the remainder to insert a hook.
6.Either sand or grind down the edges of the cut sides so they will slide easily across each other. Also sand or grind down all corners and the edge which contacts the area around the head (Theraband first).
7.Place a band clamp around pvc with the screw on top. The band clamp can be attached to the pipe with a recessed screw for ease of attachment. Caution!! Experiment slowly with the pressure vs. Weight. Do not overtighten!! This device still places a majority of the pressure on the head and you shouldn’t use much weight.
1.Buy a two or three foot piece of tubing so you will have plenty. Flexible Pvc or strong rubber at least 1 1/2 in diameter will do. It is very cheap.
2. First split the tubing length ways with a hand saw.
3.Then cut off about three inches of the pipe.
4.Wrap your penis for protection, and then wrap the tubing around your penis.
5.Mark a spot on each end, allowing for a 1/2 inch overlap or greater. Cut off the excess.
6.Next you want to cut out an area to allow the head to escape.
7.Measure down one side about 1 inch and then over about 1/2 the width of the total tube; a curved rectangle.(in other words imagine the tube laying out flat).
8. Cut out this area with a saw, or nippers etc. Wrap the tubing around your penis again with the cut ends on one side or the other and the head in the cut out rectangle.
9.Mark on the top of the tube the areas that would immediately impact the head.
10.Take off the tubing and cut out this area using strong scissors, nippers or a table grinder. The cut out area should be you shaped (unless your penis is weird). There should be 1 1/2 inches of tubing or more under the head.
11.Drill a hole in this part to attach an S hook, or string to attach the weights. Make sure the hook or string cannot pinch or interfere with the head.
12.Put a band clamp around the non-cutout portion of the tubing to attach. Follow the warnings above about problems. Make sure you wrap your penis with some protective material before attaching.
Sorry for my earlier post, Imagine your penis lying in a 3 inch trough (flexible pvc or rubber tubing) with the tip of the head at the far end. (You are looking down at the top side). Then just behind the head, another shorter (1 1/2-1 3/4 inch) upside down trough covers about 1 1/2 inch of the top of the penis.
The top, upside down trough slightly overlaps the bottom trough on one side (because there are not actually two troughs. The head then will only be 1/2 covered by pvc (the bottom) and the area behind the head will be in a tube. This is where the band clamp is placed. The you cut out is a tracing of the glans on the top back of the head. A you cut will give more comfort than a straight cut. Also it will be more comfortable to bevel (sand of grind) the edge of the you.
The pvc trough that the head lays in is where a hole can be drilled to insert an S-hook. The sides of this area can also be trimmed if the head is too large to fit in comfort.
The tubing is flexible enough to pry open the cut side in order to insert the wrapped penis.
Saying the head sticks through a hole was not accurate. Sorry.
Bigger, I saw that you are a senior member. I long time hanger. Can you say about you nowadays? How are you today? Doing PE yet? Doing for maintanance? Do not doing? Did you have any problem along this time (from your start to nowadays)? If doing how about you routine today?
