  • Extender Buying Tips

    Several tips to share, hopefully making you the smarter shopper. Based on my own experiences, and reading on the trials & tribulations of fellow extender users.

    1. Does it come with extra parts.
    Like different rod lengths so that you can “build” it to suit your flaccid length, and as you grow, add extra length. We know why people buy extenders, but can you imagine buying one that is so long, you find you are too short to fit in ? Can you order replacement parts if needed ? Look closely at what comes with it. Think about if you will need either extra nooses, straps, pads, comfort cushions etc, or replacement parts. Some parts may be expedables; you buy &
    replace them yourself.

    2. Give some thought/research to how you can fasten into the extender.
    This is critical. It’s all about comfort. With or without a foreskin is important. There is the silicon tube noose to loop over the shaft, just behind the head or Glans. There are some extenders that use a strap, about an inch wide, which is also fastened just behind the Glans. There are some extenders that allow the use of either or both noose & strap. Some have a Chamber with ancillary latex where a vacuum draws the Glans into the chamber.There are add on parts that change your extender so that it uses a vacuum sleeve attaching mount. You fasten in flaccid. Some extenders provide padding, foam wraps, to allow you to wrap a protective layer around the shaft. There are plenty of forum posts demonstrating other alternatives to facilitate comfort.

    3. Instructions.
    This is a difficult thing to shop for. Is there a manufacturers users forum or an 800 number for support ? Visit your favorite PE forum website and see what you can determine. Visit YouTube and do different searches for penis extenders, the manufacturers name, see what’s been posted in the video departments. You may discover things to be on the lookout for. Does it come with a CD of information, PDF files, videos for the user ?

    4. How does one adjust it for proper wearing ?
    This would be impossible to figure out from what extender web sites I’ve seen. However I want to point out some tidbits for your consideration.
    Generally speaking, one fastens into an extender, and adjusts it to place tension or pull on the penis. It is the stretching process. But how much pull do I use ?
    Some extenders have “calibrated” springs and lines inscribed to indicate the force being used to apply the stretch. One has lines for 600 gm, 1200 gm, 1800 gm. Others have different gram values.
    600 gm = 1lb 5.16 oz
    1200 gm = 2lb 10.32 oz
    Some extenders only give a sample schedule to “add X mm every two weeks”.
    Or adjust to some other criteria, based on comfort, length, or some combination thereof.
    And when will you change these adjustments ? Will you need to build up & adapt ? So depending upon which design you go with, there are going to be aspects that you will need to deal with. This is where your forum members can help.

    5. Money back guarrantee ?
    They are out there. Google around to see if you can find who lives up to that and who does not. Does the seller/manufacturer have a warranty period if a part breaks ? This is where the price variance for extenders come in to play. Buy a $59.95 internet special, it breaks, you throw it out, for example.

    6. What do you have as a spending limit. Only you can determine and adjust that as you shop around and see what brand of extender sells for what price.
    When I put my toe in the water, and bought an “Internet special”, I could not get long enough to get fastened in. I actually had to take parts out of it to make it shorter. It was not fun. There were no instructions. It hurt for awhile to wear it, but I was determined. Later I bought a more expensive extender with many more options.

    7. Use the PE forums.

    Hopefully this will save you some heartbreak, headaches, and regrets of not having done your homework.
