My stretcher had been laying around unused for a while now so I thought it was about time I improved it again. There were 2 things I didn't like about the previous attachment part of my stretcher, the inner rectangles which should provide lateral pressure but were too soft to do a good job and the need for a hoseclamp for tightening. The screw of the hoseclamp can show through your pants and the end sticks in your leg.
The first problem I fixed by making a sort of minihanger with ridges for extra grip. For the second problem I used shoelaces and a Mechano part (metal strip with 3 holes). The shoelaces are already annoying me but the wood I used will probably break if I enlarge the holes to use a rope instead. I used the Mechano part because a wooden version broke while drilling holes in it grrr. To tighten the attachment part I first tie the shoelaces in a knot then I rotate the Mechano part and secure it with a shoelace through one of the holes.
I may replace the wooden parts with the strong plastic I used for my most recent hanger and then I will also cut off the ends of the screws.
For the bottom cylinder I bought a pipe connection piece of pvc (inner-diameter 2.44" & 2.76"), it turned out to be too big for the conventional use but it is comfortable after pulling my scrotum through it. The cylinder is thin which I will cushion later but when worn down or up it pushes with the side without any discomfort. Instead of flexible pvc/hose material I used a piece of an old belt. The sidepieces I made myself but you could probably buy something like that. Those sidepieces also make sure the most pressure is at the side of my penis.
I place my wrap halfway up my shaft, which in my case is a sock cut in half. Then I put on the piece of belt with the center underneath and the open points at the top in such a way there's space left out under the top of my glans where the nerves are. Finally I put on the hoseclamp and tighten it a little.
