"Been Hanging for a Month"
#1
Hi everyone, I'm new to the forums (been lurking for awhile) and have been haning with the Captains Wench for about a month now. I've gotten some modest gains from it but the thing is, I couldn't find the grippers anywhere and had to go with soft felt backing. Does anyone know of any alternative for the grippers that will allow me to go over 10 lbs? I can get to 10 lbs but then it will become uncomfortable because the felt loses its grip because it is not hard enough.

I found a Lowe's semi-close to me! I drove 40 minutes today to go to the nearest Lowe's to buy grippers. When i got there I went to the flooring section, which then sent me to the carpet section where I got the dreaded question : "What are they for?" haha, and then after explaining that I needed them to keep my VCR in place, I got sent to hardware and finally found them.

Glad you finally found them!

I feel bad, b/c if I would have seen this post yesterday i probably could have saved you some time. I currently used cut out pieces of gel insoles (which PirateSteve suggested) that you put in shoes that can be found at any pharmacy and most stores.

I have one question for you though: do you wrap when you hang? I dont know how well the grippers or felt would work if you dont wrap b/c they dont really have any friction/gripping to grab your penis. The gel insoles may work better for wrapless hanging b/c they are waffle textured and grab to the penis pretty well, but I personally always wrap for comfort reasons and the fact I'm using 15lbs

Good luck w/ your haning and keep us updated

I have always wrapped when I hang, my skin is sensitive and I don't like it getting chaffed. As for gains I have made about .2" gain since last month, I did manual stretches and jelqing before then for about 2 months and gained 1" length and 1" girth. I started out at 5" BPenis EnlargementL and 3"EG .... Yea God musta forgot about me or somethin lol. But now I'm like 6.2" BPenis EnlargementL by 4" EG.

Stunn-
Here is an exerpt from something PirateSteve and I have been working on. It is an article about the various alternatives people can use for the homebrew Wench. I've been meaning to post it in its entirety (with photos) but since you ask about the grippers here is that section.
(It's very cool to see you guys all using The Wench - and with good weight too)
Cheers

Alternative Grippers
Can’t find any grippers where you are? They are indeed the very best material to use in Wench construction, but not the easiest part to find. If you can’t locate any grippers, but want to Wench, what does one do? I have tried and successfully used a number of alternative materials.
Plastic Shims I got at Ace Hardware for $2.49 (they are made to stabilize furniture that tilts or wobbles), a paint stick I got free at Home Depot, and a wooden yard stick I got at Home Depot for a whopping $0.59.
You can use anything hard - like wood, aluminum or plastic - as long as you can cut it to size (1 x 2 x about 1/4 inches). I have made and successfully tested grippers that were scrap aluminum, scrap lexan, balsa and an old wooden ruler. The Plastic Shim furniture wedges interested me because they were already the right size. However, since they are wedges, one must glue two together to get them to an even depth. Once done though, they work marvelously well.

The idea is to get something hard that can act like a vise on the sides of your penis. Use some creativity, and you will find something small and hard that is just right. After all my experimenting I find I am partial to free paint stirrers because the price is right, they are easy to cut, they are the right width and thickness, and they should be available pretty much anywhere paint is sold.

The key to alternative materials for grippers, I have found, is to use something on top of the hard material to provide a bit of “give” and provide some “grip”. There are two classes I have discovered that work wonderfully for just this

Gripper Padding:
Item #1 is a set of Gel insoles. They are available most places and as far as I know any brand can be used. They cut like butter even with safety scissors. In fact, it is much harder to open the package than cut the Gel. Cut them a little bigger than the gripper so the sides hang over for maximum comfort. (since the grippers are 1x2, make the gel 1.5x2.5 for instance).

Item #2 is the Airplus Gel Cushion Insole I bought at Walgreens Drug Stores for $4.99 (and got a 50 cent off coupon on top of that). It has a tight waffle pattern that enhances grip. Yes, it will leave temporary marks on your penis (you could always carry around some maple syrup for any girl that mentions it). One advantage of the Insole is that most of them have a felt backing, making them easy to attach to your grippers. Stick a square of “male” velcro on the top side of the gripper. Then just place the Gel felt side down against the Velcro and it sticks just fine. Now you have a comfortable “gripper” alternative (actually, this version is much more comfortable than the gripper alone ever was for me).
Airplus Gel Heel Cushion is perfectly smooth, so you can avoid the waffle pattern if you like by using it. What it does not have though is a felt backing. That means you will have to use some flexible glue or double sided tape to attach it. You could put “male” velcro on the gripper as with the insole, and then put a square of “female” velcro on the Gel Heel Cushion. This works, but you are starting to get a lot of thickness to the whole thing and it may not fit inside your Cable Clamp. That said, I have done exactly this and it seems fine - but I prefer to glue the Gel to the gripper (I use a large size Cable Clamp myself anyway). As a side note, with the Gel Heel Cushion glued to a cut up ruler I have been able to hang fairly comfortably without wrapping up to about 12 pounds for 20 minute sets. Perhaps you could too?

Item #3 is Aquarium Silicone, I bought a tube at Ace Hardware for $4.49. You should be able to find it at any pet store that sells fish, and most of the Super Wallmart’s sell it too. It is lovely stuff, a glue and cushion in one. Be careful to get the Aquarium type of silicone though, the regular silicone is toxic and will make your penis fall off (well no, but it could give you a rash). To use it, just run a few beads down the top surface of the gripper, or you can just smear on a nice layer with a matchbook cover. I find this stuff indispensable for Penis Enlargement gear, and have beads of it on most of my junk. It is also a fine glue. I used it to glue my cut up Gel Heel Cushion to my cut up ruler for my own Wench, and to glue the Plastic Shim furniture wedges together as a replacement gripper.

Hahahaha that's great!

Good post Captainhook. I have the grippers now but have been looking for comfort and I think I'm gonna go with the aquarium silicone. I have to say thanks because if it wasn't for your invention I wouldn't even be hanging right now! Thanks a million

Stunna, you have made some impressive gains, nice going!

As for comfort, I was wondering how far apart you placed the grippers, maybe you should experiment by moving them around a bit. I dont know if you altered the original design or not, but I think that its distance was made for someone w/ 5 inches of girth...Just a suggestion

Thanks for those two months all I thought about was Penis Enlargement, even when i went to take a leak I would do some stretches in front of the urinal.

That's probably my problem, need to gain another inch of girth before I'm actually average :mad: ... although I have about average length which is good. My aim for now is the common 8x6 goal, and then I'll probably look to be bigger than that ;)
