Popping a Woody in the HOLD!


We sold a LOT of Hold Cock & Ball Cages at International Mr. Leather (IML) this past May. That means we also have a lot of pictures of guys wearing them! We have been trying NOT to blog the Hold every day--but this young ginger man was such a cutie that we have to share him (in his Hold) with the world. As the pictures below reveal, we had a lot of fun with the Hold at IML. They created a lot of heat--like the man pictured below, most guys popped a boner as soon as they put it on (which frankly does not make it any easier!)

The Hold is gear essentials' first stab at cock & ball cages. It acts as a cock and shaft ring--all in one piece of solid stainless steel gear.

Many of our customers have asked for something bigger and bolder so we crafted it. The Hold cock ring features our widest bandwidth at 1.5" (38 mm) and is available in three interior diameters:  1 3/4" (44.5 mm), 1 7/8" (47.6 mm) and 2" (50.8 mm). But rather than making your ball sac travel an inch-and-a-half before dropping free, we created a wide slot for them to drop through so you don't feel like they are stretched up to your chin.  Now everything is pointed in the right direction (or WILL be--see below!)

Many of you have requested more dimensions to assist in getting the best sizing. For the most part we have found that correct sizing in the Hold corresponds to what you normally wear in a cock ring; however, the shaft ring adds another element that needs to be considered.




Size Shaft Balls Width Balls Depth
1 3/4" 1.3"/ 33 mm 1.6"/40 mm 1.1"/23 mm
1 7/8" 1.4"/35 mm 1.6"/40 mm 1.1"/23 mm
2" 1.5"/38 mm 1.7"/42 mm 1.1"/23 mm





Size Weight
1 3/4" 9.6 Oz.
1 7/8" 10.3 Oz.
2" 11.2 Oz.



Awesome Boner:  The HOLD Cock & Ball Cage by gear essentials


BigBear from Texas on Jun 03, 2014
You will get some awesome boners!  BigBear from Texas wrote:  "Dude..what an awesome piece of metal this is! The first time I opened up the package I was impressed with how substantial it was and the great workmanship. Smooth, burnished metal with precision bolt holes and a nice amount of heft to it. I slipped it on immediately. It was a bit tough to get the alignment just right the first time...after I got the hang of it it was easier the 2nd time. Gave me an awesome boner and now I want to buy more products from you. The reaction from all my bate buddies has been outstanding! They love it and wanted to know where they could get one too. I couldn't be happier! Thanks! 

BigBear is right that it can be a challenge to put it on the first time. But we have also found that it gets easier with practice. Slip the larger half over your cock and balls and push it snugly against your pubes with the slotted side down. Let your balls drop through the wide slot and slide the head of your dick through the outer ring (see the picture--showing the Hold upside down--below). Pull the two halves together so you can line up the screw with the hole (now there's a life theme for ya!) Hand tighten the two screws until the Hold is firmly locked down. (The two halves have to be aligned for the screws to go in smoothly.)  Getting into the Hold gets much easier with practice!

Note that the band closest to your pubes is the wider of the two rings--this allows you to fit the majority your ball sac into the indentation (wide slot) before attaching the outer ring. This is to minimize the risk of pinching. The outer ring tapers to a narrower opening which adds weight and acts as a shaft ring. Many have commented that this gives an increased shaft pressure that they have never experienced before--and they are loving it. Like any ring, it restricts blood flow in your dick so your shaft gets even bigger.

Can You Jack with It?

Yes! And you will be harder and even more sensitive! You will notice that you have a shorter stroke though because the ring is taking up 1.5" of the length of your shaft's length. However, most the most erogenous penile parts are closer to the other end of your dick so it's all good. We found that it forced us to be creative and try some new techniques (and we like learning new things).  


Can You Fuck with It?

We have heard a couple of responses:

  • "No thanks, I want more depth to my fuck and this is cramping my style."
  • "I love it, the combination of cock ring and built in shaft ring made me HUGE and the fucking is fucking awesome!"
  • One IML customer stopped back to report that he took the outer ring off for fucking--this gave him the room he needed for the depth of thrust that he and his partner enjoy while the base ring gave him the support and fullness he likes.




The Hold, in Two Parts, is Hand-Screwed Together


We hate to claim that anything "revolutionizes" sex. (Although if you have never worn a cock ring before--grab one! That truly will take you to a new level of mind-blowing-eye-popping-exploding-orgasm sex!) However, we can promise that you will find that the Hold is a handy gadget because it acts as a cock ring as well as providing a built-in shaft ring! The beauty of this shaft ring is that it is secured so it won't slide off during sex--and that feels amazingly good (for both you and your partner). You'll pop a woody--and keep on popping!

Hey, Stephen: We’ve done a couple of blogs talking about how to put it on. It’s a simple concept: two screws hold the two halves together. But it can be awkward until you get the hang of it. This is where it is good to have some helping hands!

It is a seriously hot piece of gear!



Oh my God….that looks awesome…..do you give instructions on how to put it on tho…..that looks like an essential piece of hardware. But seriously…..can one be talked through how to wear it on the phone…..I’m turned on
