Just went out and brought a muzzle to start hanging since i have a LOT at 6 i have been doing OTL and OTS, i have read hanging 101 but im still confused on how to wrap, i have been pulling my foreskin right back but no matter how tight i do my wrap it still slips. Atm i am using an ace bandage and a piece of cloth any ideas?

When Millia gets on he can probably help. I can't advise on hanger settings for the Muzzle hanger (I didn't find out it existed until recently).
Ideas for Your Wrap
HTW : a Scunci cut in half. I find Theraband on top of this doesn't slip. I think I had to go to Kmart to get these (see hanging 101 in my link for a little more info on this)
What-A-Grip: a thin rubber tube, very flexible & stretchable, but keeps its form fairly well on your penis. you've got to cut it to the length of your flaccid & really stretch it before it fits on. I think Dustpan originally came up with this. Go to the sporting goods section of walmart, this is a rubber tube racket grip that costs about $2.50
Theraband: Grey rubber wrap. It came with my Bib Hanger, I don't know whether retail outlets carry this. I had to cut a 10" wide strip of Theraband into narrower strips. It's about 1/16" thick, maybe thinner.
Probably any one of these alone is enough to provide a good wrap that wont slip. However, I've been using all 3x together for comfort. A lot of guys just use theraband, nothing else, and some guys use theraband + the HTW. I tried Thera-band + the What-A-Grip, but it pulled my skin in a way I didn't like.
I think the HTW + What-A-Grip could make a decent wrap too, but it will make your shaft a bit narrow. You need a decent amount of extra flaccid girth to keep the hanger in place (it helps). You could try HTW + What-A-Grip + an SS on top (a sweat shirt cut into strips), or HTW on bottom with SS on top.
I find new Theraband works really well for preventing hanger slippage, at least with my Bib hanger. I don't know if it works with the muzzle hanger.
I made a mistake in one of the earlier versions of the guide. LOT theory only predicts your potential gains from suspensory ligament stretching. It does not suggest a hanging angle (if the guide still says that, its a mistake, but I believe I changed it). I was rusty on LOT theory, I should have reviewed it, but as you know, the guide is pretty huge so I was bound to make a mistake. LOT can give you a guideline on how much you might need to stretch your ligaments before you have reached maximum deformation. The truth is that this is different for everyone (the amount your ligaments can stretch before your hanging will start really just deforming your tunica instead, due to max out lig stretching/creep/deformation).
Choosing Your Angle of AttackNo matter what your LOT is you need to stretch your ligaments to their maximum deformation level before you'll be able to really target your tunica. I think all new hangers need to start with SD or BTC, or some combination of the two. I recommend those two angles as your primary & secondary angle too (either can be secondary or primary). This is based on what I currently understand, and that is, every hanger needs to maximize lig gains & maximize that deformation first. Once you do that, then you can really start to deform the tunica. This will probably be slower since the Tunica is hard to deform.
Effectively, any lower angle will target your ligs. That is why I'm recommending that you do BTC/ SD first instead (it sounds like you just started hanging).

I think an SS will work better than an ACE bandage. Have you tried that?
I think any physical therapy outlet will have theraband, here is one example:
(these guys are based on in Australia)

It seems that site has blue, black, and all sorts of other color tubes... I wouldn't know which kind to buy. I don't know if its even the right kind of Theraband....
In hanging 101 I have a picture of a cut strip of Theraband.
If you could find some kind of physical therapy outlet, (based on the link above) I think you could find something. Your local gym might be able to tell you where to get Theraband, or if you have friends that are physical therapists that could help (e.g. if you're in college you could ask the P.T.s how/where to get Theraband).
SS + Theraband should work fine. For me, Theraband is key for preventing slippage while adding some WFG, wrapped flaccid girth
Bib Sells Theraband (International)
On second thought, you could just buy Theraband from Bib, it's cheaper than trying to get it from the physical therapy outlet, and you'll be guaranteed to get the right kind.
That's what I recommend. His site is: bibhanger.com

Hanger slippage is always an issue. Even if you find something that works at lower weights, once you move up it might stop working. It's part of the long learning curve with traditional type hangers.
With stuff like theraband though, you should always be able to figure something out (although sometimes I find my really old worn theraband doesn't work well).
If you have ever done physical therapy though, they give theraband away. I think its thinner (maybe?) than the grey Theraband Bib sells. Actually, in terms of physical therapy I have only seen red, green, blue and black theraband. I have no idea where the grey stuff that bib sells comes from.
If you know anyone getting physical therapy you could always try to get some for free. The hard part would be explaining why you need it

Another alternative would be to try & order from some place like ebay or Amazon.com...
for example, you could get: What-A-Grip and Chamois Leather Wrap (the stuff Millia uses)
It looks like there are some Chamois leather wraps out there in Australia:
Getting theraband from Bib would be cheaper; but then again, I haven't used the muzzle hanger. Maybe leather works better.
I'm not sure if this helps, but here's what What-A-Grip looks like:
This is my 'shotgun' approach to helping you -- hopefully something sticks

I know some guys wrap with a narrow Ace. I tried it and didn't care much for it.
Be careful with the Theraband. Theraband comes in a dark gray color that is pretty thin. The stuff BIB sells is quite thick and light gray in color. I think Theraband actually calls it silver.

Thank you redbear52... I learned something new
I have some of that 'silver' theraband. It is a lot thicker than the normal stuff for sure... (I did rehab about 12 years ago for an injury and my red theraband was super-thin)
