AFB penis weight hanger

To learn more about this unique hanger, see AFB background and concept, AFB hanger construction, and AFB hanger use (including videos).

This has become quite popular, and for good reason: it's easy to make, costs almost nothing, allows for multiple adjustments to fit you comfortably, unlike commercial devices I've tried.

Also, you can make one anywhere, from just about anything. To make a point, I built one using just string and bamboo, and attached ten pounds (4.5 kg). Total elapsed time: under five minutes. That required some skill with knots, of course. If you want it completely metal-free, you can use a small ratcheting plastic cable clamp in place of the S-hook.

Here's a simple, effective AFB hanger made from a free large paint stirrer from Lowe's. You can also use a wooden ruler or any other piece of wood that works.

Tie the 'back' ends together with a string, leaving extra to connect at the front.

Secure a second string through the 'front' hole.

Add two or three beads, and tie a knot in to hold them in place. You will, no doubt, need to adjust the exact location of the knot later, so hopefully you can untie it!

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: AFB penis weight hanger

Tie the 'back' string to the 'front' string. This makes the 'V' to which you can attach an S-hook.

Now comes the fun part - adjusting everything to fit you. Be patient! Take your time! Think of all the money you've saved! Note: before you make your adjustments, find some soft cloth to wrap around your penis. For additional grab, add another strip of latex (for example, from a cheap swim cap).

Piet's AFB universal penis weight hanger

Piet took my original PVC-pipe design and rendered it considerably more elegant using wood (you may find it easier to shop for hardware if you get a bolt and wing nut instead of threaded rod):

The main features of the AFB hanger are that only lateral pressure is used, and because of its simplistic design, it's very easy to make yourself at home. The alternative design presented here uses screws for tightening which allows it to be used for safe heavy weight hanging.

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: Piet's AFB penis weight hanger

Supplies needed:

5.5cm 5mm Threaded rod
9cm 5mm Threaded rod
24cm Nylon cord
10x3cm Wood/metal/plastic
4 5mm Wingnuts


The material used for the sides should not easily bend and not brake under pressure. Use something strong! The thickness of the material should be at least 5mm (0.2"). If your erect girth is more than 15cm (6") you will need longer sides. If there's a choice for the material of the threaded rod use stainless steel, alternatively you can saw off the heads of screws.

Building instructions:

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: Piet's AFB penis weight hanger

Cut the sides to the required size.

Round off the corners of the sides.

File the edges of the sides smooth.

Drill out 2 holes as shown with a diameter of 6.5mm (2.5"). This size allows the bottom screw to work as pivot point like a hinge and makes it easier to use the quickrelease. Allow for enough distance between the holes and the edges. I used 4mm (0.15") in the example but it depends on the strength of the material used what is enough to prevent it from breaking.

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: Piet's AFB penis weight hanger

Add a quickrelease in one side by cutting open the front hole.

Tie a loop in both ends of the cord. Put everything together as shown.

Hanging instructions:

Before you start hanging with an AFB Hanger read the following instructions from start to end.


The removable weights of a dumbbellset are ideal for hanging. You will know exactly how much you hang and you can increase the weight in small increments. You can use a weightholder or just tie the weights together with a cord. If you don't have dumbbell weights look for some other heavy stuff which you can tie together for example a bag of screws or a bottle of water.

Warming up

Before you start hanging it is recommended that you do a warmup for just a couple minutes. This makes the tunica and ligaments of your penis more elastic and easier to stretch, it also reduces the chances of injury. There are multiple ways of doing a warming up for your penis like a hot wet wrap, microwave heated rice sock, an infrared light or a heatpillow.


Before you attach the hanger you should apply a wrap. The wrap will be used to hold the skin in place and will prevent pinching. For wrapping material you can use a bicycle innertire, theraband, the HTW (Hair Tie Wrap) or clothing material. The wrapped area of your shaft should be about 5.6 cm (2.2") long.

Leave about 1.3 cm (0.5") between your glans and the front of the wrap at first. If the area of wrapping proofs to be too sensitive lower the wrap to a more comfortable position, especially the foreskin of an uncut penis can be very sensitive. Also wrapping over certain veins can proof to be uncomfortable at first. Over the course of several hanging sessions your skin and veins will become more conditioned to hanging and it will be much easier to find a comfortable place to wrap for hanging.


The first time attaching the hanger set the bottom screw in such a way that the sides are about 1.5 cm (0.6") apart and start with tightening the top screw. During tightening the top screw and hanging you will need to tweak the bottom screw to get the right setting for optimal grip. After your hanging session you can detach the hanger using the quickrelease. You won't have to adjust the bottom screw for the next hanging session.

First make sure to be flaccid and put on your wrap. If you get erect after putting on your wrap wait till your erection subsides. Hold the hanger with one hand with the front side facing up. Take your flaccid penis and place the middle of the wrapped area in the centre of the hanger. Put the front screw in place. If your glans is no longer parallel with the sides, release the front screw, adjust your penis and try again. Once you get it right you can start tightening your hanger. Having the sides almost parallel works best for grip and comfort. During hanging your tissues will stretch which requires you to occasionally tighten the hanger a bit more.

Tightening the hanger may cause your shaft and glans to twist a little, up till about 30 degrees is still ok. If it twists more there could be pressure ontop of your shaft where the nerves are so it's best to start over again. If this happens a lot you can try tightening the bottom screws some more so you can lock your penis in the hanger. You can also stretch your penis a little while putting on the hanger or hold your penis when you put the front screw in place.

In order for the hanger to get a good grip on the end of the tunica from which you want to hang you will need to tighten the hanger a lot. After tightening the end of the tunica, located within the glans, will form a plug and stay in front of the hanger. With the hanger tight enough there will be no tension on your glans. If you don't tighten enough the hanger will slide forward and tension on your shaft will be shared by your skin and your glans, which can cause temporary discoloration in both. If you're (tightly) cut you can't avoid stretching your skin somewhat but you can avoid tension on your glans.


Hang the first time only for about 5-10mins with low weight e.g. 2kg (4lbs) to test if everything works as it should. When you are convinced everything is alright you can gradually increase hanging time to 20mins. Add weight only when you feel you need more to get a good workout, try not to add more than 1lbs (0.5 kg) a week.

Warning signs

Understand that hanging is potentially dangerous when you're not hanging correctly or when your penis is weaker than usual. A weak penis is gainwise a good thing because weaker tissues stretch easier but you have to be more careful when hanging. This translates into shorter hanging sessions with less weight than normal. Even with a perfectly normal penis and following the instructions to the letter you may not get it right the first time, it's a matter of trial and error.

Stop your hanging session immediately when:

  • your penis hurts while hanging
  • your penis starts tingling
  • your penis gets numb
  • your glans gets too cold
  • your glans gets hard
  • your penis is getting erect
  • your penis has twisted too much


For optimal result it's best to consistently follow a routine for your hanging sessions. A hanging routine can be 3-6 sessions of 15-20mins a day 5-7 days a week. It wouldn't be a bad idea to reserve some time for jelqing for overall penis health.

There are several positions and angles you can use for hanging. The basic positions are standing while hanging straight down (SD) and sitting on the edge of a chair while hanging (SD). Both of these positions target the tunica of the visible part of your penis (outerpenis) and the ligaments which connect your penis to the pubic bone. Leaning all the way back in a chair with your penis hanging down is called between the cheeks (BTC), this also targets the outerpenis and the ligaments.

When you attach a hook or pulley to your desk and run the cord of the weight over it you can hang sitting using higher angles between straight out (SO) and straight up (SU). Alternatively you can hang standing with the weight hanging over the shoulder (OTS). SO and higher angles target the tunica of the entire penis including the part inside your body (innerpenis).


You can gain from both lengthening the ligaments and the tunica. There's no accurate information on how much you can gain from hanging and how long it will take. If enough effort is put into it a 2.5 cm (1") gain should be possible within 6-12 months, but it doesn't have to stop there. There have been gains reported of 5.1-7.6 cm (2-3") although most not just from hanging alone.

Happy hanging!



Adjustable seat hanger

This design allows you to adjust the downward pull by moving the weight closer or farther from the fulcrum point (bottom of seat).

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: adjustable seat penis weight hanger

Wrap your penis shaft, then place one Velcro tie so that the back ends of pipe are touching, or very close. Place wrapped portion of penis into the 'V' and attach the other Velcro cable tie. If you wrap the velcro close to your penis, you can slide it outward to tighten the grip if necessary.A very effective weight is a five-pound ankle weight that has removable 8-ounce weights. Drape it or wrap it around the pipes. By shifting the weight away from your body, you increase the leverage and the amount of pull.

Jelq sticks / Drum sticks

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: jelq sticks

Basic version: PVC pipe (1/2Basic version: PVC pipe (1/2" - 12.7 mm) -10"

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: jelq sticks

Deluxe: 1/2 Deluxe: 1/2" with 1/2"

How to use Jelq Sticks

Powerjelq - start with your penis at or near its maximum flaccid size. Place the sticks at mid-shaft and gently pull toward the head. Pull out and down. Continue for 15 minutes, one or two sessions per day.

Do this in bright light, direct sunlight if possible, and watch closely for any bruises or other discoloration that develops. It WILL take some trial and error to learn how much force is too much. At first, avoid doing this with a full erection. For advanced users, continue while erect.

Lockups: grasp penis horizontally, positioning so that you can achieve maximum comfortable pull. Standing, pull upward, resting hands against abdomen. Pull and hold maximum upward intensity. Now gently lean back, then forward, then side to side. Do Kegels.

Advanced users ONLY!

Marksman technique - "sit on floor against the wall. Raise your legs so your penis hangs down between them. Reach round your legs and grip penis with sticks and streeetch. This is quite intense and gives an effect almost as good as hanging." (Actually I think it some ways it's better than hanging.) Hold tension on for up to 15 minutes, then take a break and repeat if you want.

One handed gear shift - Wrap a rubber band several times around one end of the sticks. Sit against wall with legs apart on a carpeted floor. Grasp penis vertically with sticks, with rubber band on the bottom. Place rubber band end on floor, and use one hand to push outward. Hold tension on for up to 15 minutes, then take a break and repeat if you want.

Roll-ups - you can grasp your penis horizontally with the sticks, roll it forward (or back) and pull that way. Why would you want to do this? Boredom, I guess....

Directional variations - grasp and pull to the sides, straight up, out, down.

Warning: though most adverse effects from this go away after a day or two, you must determine the level of risk you're willing to take. A good session will leave you pleasantly sore. Sharp or persistent pain means you're overdoing it.

It's your dick. Treat it with respect!


Swim cap

You will need: rubber swim cap. Cut a 4" x 8" (10 X 20 cm) piece from the swim cap. Clean it well with detergent and dry. The stickier the latex, the less tightly you will need to wrap it - wash repeatedly if necessary!

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: swim cap penis weight attachmentNotes on using: wearing shorts, you can hang penis and weight over the edge of your computer chair as you work. Standing, you can hang penis through fly opening of pants (carefully!). An S-hook makes quick removal of weight easy. This attachment technique offers comfort and and a the ability to hang a decent amount of weight

There are two approaches to the swim cap. I prefer the first.

Technique 1: wrap directly onto penis

Tightly wrap rubber around glans and shaft of penis several times . Add an elastic band or tape to keep rubber from unwrapping.

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: swim cap penis weight attachmentAttach a string to an S-hook, then tie the free ends very tightly around the rubber beyond the tip of your penis. You can also use a plastic clothes pin with built in hook. For heavier weights, you may need to wedge the pin closed using a cork or something similar.

Technique 2: roll onto penis as a 'condom'

Wrap rubber tightly around 3/4" (2 cm) dowel or broom handle. Roll rubber off dowel.

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: swim cap penis weight attachmentSwim cap for hanging penis weights. Roll the rubber onto penis. Pull back foreskin so rubber grabs glans, not skin. Test attachment. If it comes off easily, wrap tighter around dowel. This technique may take some practise to master.

Now you can tie a string to the free end of the latex and hang a weight from it.

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: swim cap penis weight attachment

Here are more complete instructions, featuring the 'condom' technique.

Step 1. Prepare latex

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: swim cap penis weight attachmentUse 4"x 8" cardboard template to cut out a section of the swim cap. Thoroughly wash the latex, using soap or cleaner. When dry, it should stick to itself.After cleaning and rinsing latex sheets, they should cling to itself (glossy side inside).

Note about color: white latex seems to be the stickiest. Blue is next, black least sticky.

Step 2: Wrap onto pipe

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: swim cap penis weight attachmentWrap latex around 1.75" of PVC, glossy side against PVC. Make sure first wrap layer has tension.

Step 3: Roll off pipe

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: swim cap penis weight attachmentRoll latex off PVC into condom form.

Step 4: Roll onto penis

Begin rolling condom onto glans.

When condom is about halfway on, it will grab enough to stretch condom/penis and roll on rest of way.


Step 5: Test grip

Tom Hubbard's Practical Penis Enlargement: swim cap penis weight attachmentCondom should cover glans plus 1/4 inch.

Pull firmly to test grip.

You are now ready to attach weights.

Step 6: Attach weight

Tie an S-hook onto cotton cord. Tie free end of cord around latex. Hang weight from hook.

Weight can be anything convenient and/or inconspicuous: an empty plastic bottle with water (one US pint = one pound; one liter = one kilogram). Start with 2-3 pounds (1 kg +), and add weight every week or so. With this attachment, some people comfortably hang ten pounds (4.5 kg) or more.

Very important

  • remove weight every 10-15 minutes for a 5-10 minute break to restore circulation
  • It's also a good idea to do PC exercises while hanging to encourage circulation
  • do not allow penis to become cold
  • for maximum progress, aim for two hours 'hang time' daily
