  • TLC-X with ComforTug Strap

    I have a question pertaining to using the TLC-X with the ComforTug Strap. When wearing it, I am attaching it as shown here. I'm concerned about the way the clamp on the strap is separating the pushing rod from the upper metal piece of the body of the device. When wearing the device without a strap, the rod touches the metal. When wearing the device with the strap, the clamp separates the rod from the metal. Will this separation cause any damage to my device? If so, how can I apply the strap in such a way that doesn't bend the pieces of the device?

    That is how Ron recommends that it be used, but I personally prefer using a valet ring (key ring) and attaching the strap to the key ring. This avoids bending the device and also reduces uncomfortable binding and twisting of the handle since the keyring will allow some twisting without transmitting it to the tugger. Hardware stores sell those rings for 25-50 cents each.

      I'm of the same opinion. I use a split ring, allowing the pusher rod to remain centered and aligned.

        Yep, split ring is the way to go. Allie, you should try and get a little less skin trapped under the cone so it doesn't protrude out the end. Then you can use a rubber grommet to keep the retaining cone from loosening up. See pics.

          Thank you guys for the tip! I'm sure I have a spare key ring laying around the house that I can use. Do you permanently leave it attached to your device?

            No, you need to take it off to install or remove the retaining cone, but it's real easy to do.

              Well, before reading this last post of yours I put on a key ring and started wearing the device. I am actually able to slip the cone over the device with the key ring still attached. Do you think this is a bad idea?

                How much skin are you able to trap in the device? Ideally, after you even up the skin, you want at least 3/4 of the tugger body covered with about 1/4" space at the top of the retaining cone. Any less and the device will become punchy and uncomfortable rather quickly. Evenness is the key to a good application.

                  Most of the time my skin covers the entire Tugger body, sometimes about 3/4. I am new to the forum but not new to foreskin restoration. I've been on and off with it for about 4 years now.

                    Thanks for the tip. I admit that I sometimes put too much skin up the tugger body. I guess that I want to keep the end as puckered as possible while wearing the device, unconsciously. I'll try with less skin.

                      You will also have more skin under tension by doing that. More skin under tension=more skin cells stimulated to divide=MORE SKIN! You can't force your skin into a puckered state. The dartos muscle contracting in cooler temperatures is the only thing that will aside from a V-plasty. I wouldn't go there.

                        If I do not get my skin up high enough my cone will not stay on at all. I can never get it on without a bit of wrinkle in it, may be my skin is too thick...
                        Sorry this is for the TLC not the x...I guess the same...
