  • Homemade Restoration Device?

    Does anyone have any good links and tutorials on how to make a GOOD device?

    I would love to purchase a DTR or TLC tugger; however, I'm kind of tight on budget due to college costs. (So it's a good thing I didn't get the DTR :/ )

    But something very cheap and cost effective?

    If you've got enough slack, you can use JUST a Your-Skin Cone and balloons, as generously shared by a member. See http://foreskinrestoration.vbulletin...-and-a-balloon

      I have a few videos demonstrating methods that just use stuff you can find in local stores or your medicine cabinet (o-rings, baby bottle nipples, tape). Of course, these depend on how much skin you have to work with. You can find my other videos from my recommended method here: https://vimeo.com/142565272

        Thanks Ron! I have a question, if I buy just a Your-Skin Cone, I can always buy the TLC tugger body later on...along with the straps?

            Honestly I've never understood this. A well made device has tons of research put into it, years of trial and error etc. You'll be frustrated endlessy trying to make things work, and will likely invest WAY more than the cost of a good device on crappy supplies and inventing several things yourself.

            The cost divided by the number of hours worn and the resulting benefit is virtually nothing, we're talking pennies per day. Just buy a device!!

              True, well i just looked at the TLC Tugger, and it seems to be just in my price range. Though i'm curious, i've always wanted the TLC-X.

              If i buy just the tugger, am I able to upgrade and buy the other parts for the TLC-X? admin

                Sorry, no. The TLC-X body is wholly different. And it uses a wide-opening retaining cone (you could request a TLC-X compatible cone for your TLC Tugger). At least the same straps can always be used.

                    Get the X because it's ALSO a tugger. (I have both and wish I'd just bought the one). Best bang for the buck. While you wait, start taping.

                    Make sure you're accurate with sizing. Originally I ordered the wrong size and was for 2 years in constant discomfort until I ordered my X and found this out.

                        If you really want to restore your foreskin there are no buts. Just save up some money for a few months, do manual/t-tape/canister/... tugging meanwhile, and then buy it when you can. If you divide what it costs by a minimum of 12 months of use, it's pretty affordable.
