Restorex Advice
« on: August 11, 2020, 04:23:04 PM »

What is the best way to keep from slipping out of the clamp on the Restorex during traction sessions? 

I am currently using self-adhesive medical tape.  I wrap the head and then clamp it in.  The biggest problem I have is when I bend the device to angle down (counter to my upward curve)... the tape slowly slides right off.  Sometimes it works the whole session, but sometimes I have to rewrap 2 or 3 times.  And getting it off after can be very painful. 

Any other suggestions to keep from slipping out?

I have had luck using coban tape. Also, you might want to try 2 clicks when you clamp in if you haven't yet.

I raised the height of the clamp. Would that still be 2 clicks? Also having the problem when I angle left to counter right bend, though have not been having trouble keeping the tape on...am sliding out, tape and all.

Maybe wrap some gauze around the tape to see if it holds.

Yes I am talking about 2 clicks on the glans attachment, not the extension clicks.

I had the same issue.  Two things helped. 1) I adjusted the height of the hinged side of the clamp (see how in the directions).  That applied pressure more evenly over the head of the penis.  I'm not very big but the factory setup was way to small.  2) More importantly I wrapped the hinged top clamp lengthwise (inline with the penis) with Coban type tape. I wrapped the bandage with that same tape.  The tape is extremely good at sticking to itself and will hold much better than the plastic top clamp. Unfortunately I cannot add a pic of my set up.

I also had to adjust the hinged side of the clamp to the higher position. I may try adding the extra Coban tape once I raise the tension to the amount specified (until can't see white rings). I'm just on my 4th day and did not want to push it too hard and ease into the higher tension.

I switched the clamp setting back to the lower position. Works better now.

With the straight position I can slide the height up at least 3 extension notches. When doing the angled position, I can't get past the lowest notch when bent.
