Prevent blisters wIth vac-hanging

I’m starting up again with using a silicone cap for mine. I was able to get up to about 25lbs with my LG hanger and just wrapping and tape, but I did get a blister occasionally. I then switched to a Bib hanger and got to 40lbs before blood ended up shooting out the tip. I made .. Some mistakes. Haha!

I deconditioned for about a year and a half and just got finished focusing on my beginner manual stretching again and now starting low weight hanging and planning on doing some ADS which I didn’t do last time. I just stumbled upon the idea of using a silicone protector cap and now using baby powder to prevent fluid buildup; so, I’m gonna do both along with using microfoam tape on the end. I’ve already noticed an improvement from last time in comfort but I’m only hanging at 3bls 4hrs a day at the moment while using a powered IR heating wrap at the same time (because heat is better).

The cap makes sense since it should provide a bit more pressure on the glans to prevent fluid buildup plus the powder inside the cap absorbing the fluid as well. It can’t be worse! Honestly though, I wouldn’t do this without the tape on the tip. It’s not a big deal and I’ve never had issues with it.

I tried a Glans Cap a few times when Hanging with my VacHanger3.I have noticed after taking the hanger off the Glans Cap seems to pull away from the tip of my glans a bit creating a air pocket leaving me with swelling and puffiness around the tip. It fits snug as a bug when I put the cap on and it’s new. Is anyone else having this happen when using a cap? Should I use some tape around the bottom of the Glans cap to keep it from sliding up a bit when inside the hanger. When I just use Nexcare Absolute Waterproof tape on the whole glans I get next to nothing in Swelling or Edema. Any Thoughts.

Yes, I had the same problem. By piercing a small hole with a needle at the top of the cap, I could avoid the swelling and sliding.

So pierce the Glans cap with a small needle at the tip of the Cap fixes the problem of the cap pulling upwards off the Glans when hanging..I will try this and hope it works.Thanks for the info..

yes, I took a needle for clothes and pierced a small hole. The hole doesn’t need to be big.
Another thing I liked to do is putting a small piece of a sponge in shape of a thick coin (about 5-7 mm) at the top of the chamber.
The sponge compresses differently at different vac levels. This really helps monitoring the vacuum in the chamber.
For example: Loss of vacuum is easily detectable as the sponge gains in volume when the vacuum in the chamber decreases.
The sponge gives some cushion and the air is evacuated more evenly (larger surface than just a hole/valve before it fully compresses). This really helps with the grip because the valve can be blocked with the toe cap
(at least with my hanger design).
In combination with micropore-tape it worked well.

Moreover I cleaned the cap with soap after using it and put it in a ziploc bag filled with some babypowder.
Helps with the grip and prolongs the shelve life of the silicone.
