    Yes, I slightly blow in the balloon and than push it back towards the device to collapse the balloon against the device, than put the device against the glans, pull skin over the device body and insert my skin cone, adjust skin under cone and inflate to desired tension. I use the key ring with a leg strap to cause duel tension.

    You could get cheap condoms https://tlctugger.com/product/dry-condoms-bulk-pack-10/ and cut a couple inches off the tips to make little glans hats. For me, wearing these keeps air from going up the urethra. I show this in the TLC-X Air demo at that link.

    That cone is vented meaning that it slides easily down the tube towards the balloon. This setup doesn't require a non vented inner cone because the balloon contains the compressed air so it can't escape.

    Do you mean the inner cone?

    I tried this with the long skinny balloon cut to size. Inflation of this type of balloon gives more of a lengthwise stretch than the girthwise stress of a round balloon. Instead of elastic band I used tape to secure it to the tube.

    Do you have any pics of the balloon on the air shaft? How does it hook up with the stopper on the end?
    Here is photos of the the balloon on the air shaft and with the device and collar

    I have converted the TLC-X air to use a water balloon this is how I do it.
    1.) Take the air shaft from the TLC air and wrap about a 1/4" thick of rubber 3M tape at the very end of the shaft
    2.) Take a water balloon and slide it on taped end of the air shaft tell only the bulb end of the balloon is above the taped area, wrap a rubber band around the balloon where the tape is until tight.
    3.) Insert into and TLC-X device while using the retailing collar( if you don't use the retaining collar the tape will get pulled over the end of the air shaft
    4.) Insert device as you normally would on your penis, attach the my skin cone, one way valve and air up to the tension you desire.

Try it for yourself.
    I have an inflation kit and packer stacker on order. I'm a first responder. We use this method to treat a patient with a puncture into the pleural cavity to prevent air from entering while the patient breaths. We tape the dressing on three sides so it acts like a valve. Based on that, I was going to try putting a small piece of plastic wrap as described in the quote. I now don't have to wonder if it will work. Thanks for sharing that.

    Safer as well.

    When I first tried inflation, I tried without a balloon or taping my urethra. I got air in my urethra on occasion and didn't like the feeling or the idea of that. The danger, as I understand it, is that if air can enter, then so can microorganisms that could cause infection. Bladder infections are uncomfortable, but the big danger is the infection traveling up to the kidneys, where things get serious real fast.

    So after the second or third episode, I switched to using a balloon. Easy to do, have not had any air entering my urethra since. But I use a home made inflation method, so I am not sure how a balloon would work with that device. Probably pretty easy, but I am not sure.

    Hi, Using a balloon with the cone will prevent air from entering the urethra as the cone is inserted into the balloon and the distal part of the balloon exits. It is only necessary to clean the whole device on a regular basis. I use an elastic band to attach the balloon to the distal part of the cone. The device I use is the DTR, but I think you can do the same with your device. This eliminates the inconvenience when you need to urinate.

    I had modified the use of my DTR by myself before I realized that it was mentioned on the supplier's website (https://foreskinrestore.com/main.html).

    I strongly advise the use of a little moisturizing cream on the glans in order to allow the balloon to be well positioned without stretching the fragile skin of the glans and the frenulum and to avoid pain, because this method remains a very aggressive one. It is important to go about it intelligently and with respect for the body. The restoration of the foreskin takes several years. I am in my fourth year.

    This remains my preferred method because it is by far easier to manage in any season.

    I've twice had air shoot into my bladder. Very uncomfortable.

    I too recently obtained a hyper restore DA.
    As far as I can tell, not sealing off the urethra would open you up to risk of getting air into the bladder. Air isn't naturally present in the bladder, which should be reason enough to avoid it, although Google is being especially useless today in trying to find why this is particularly dangerous.
    Good of you to ask here, I really hope someone with specific knowledge can share some wisdom.
