I regularly receive e-mails asking how to put a gear essentials’ split ring ball stretcher on. The first (and second) time out this can be daunting. I remember my first time--it did not come naturally at all. I did quickly figured it out though (the amazing sensations were an excellent motivating factor for me) and now can almost put one on in my sleep.
Frankly, securing your ball weight may feel a bit like trying to write with the wrong hand until you get the hang of it. When I first started wearing one I thought I would never wear it on regular basis--it was such a pain to put on. Now I cannot imagine life without it.
I will also add that it is a good idea to start with the 8 ounce (1/2” bandwidth, gear essentials’ narrowest band width pictured below in the PISTON style) though. I have found that this is by far the easiest size to learn with. It's a cock and ball gear basic—not only is it the easiest to master, but you'll always find a use for it. If you are like me, this may become your default weight for daily wear. I love the gentle tug and twist and it doesn’t give me ball fatigue after a long day wearing it. It's also a great size to help you move up to the next larger ball stretcher. When I went from the 16 ounce to the 24 ounce ball weight, I started the process by sliding the 8 ounce weight on top of my already secured 16 ounce. It can be hard to get your balls to fit into a single 24 ounce unit; however, getting the two separate weights on is much easier. This has proven to be a great way to grow to the next level.

How to put on a split ring ball stretcher: Screwing it into place
I have found that if you are new to ball weights, the best time to put it on is immediately after getting out of the shower. You are warm and your balls have dropped about as far as they will go at that point. (Please don't wear it IN the shower though--the ‘male nub’ on the inside could rust. I made the mistake of swimming with my first one. It felt great but I had to clean up the rust on that nub later. The stainless finish was fine though. If you do want to swim or bathe with it on, our buddy John found a great life hack: just coat it with fingernail polish.)
Lie down on your bed or on a couch with your head slightly inclined so you can see your genitals. Place the side of the ball weight with the Allen screw on your right side if you are right-handed (left side if you are left-handed). The screw should be on the side of your dominant hand. Tighten the screw enough to keep the two halves together but swing it wide open. You are going to use this as a hinge point. Place one half of the ball weight under your balls. The top half is wide open. With your less dominant hand, tug on your balls and pull them away from your body. If you have a lot of ball sack, twist slightly to narrow them up. The goal is to get them INTO the ball weight.
With your dominant hand, swing the open half of the ball weight over your balls and line up the male and female parts together. It should still be loose at this point. Your balls should be through the weight--but probably still 'slopping' over and just waiting to be pinched. Tighten the Allen screw a bit more--so the two halves don't slip apart. Now that the two halves are loosely together, tug on your balls again and use a finger to sweep extra skin out of the joint--squeeze the two halves together firmly with your other hand. NOW screw it all the way shut.
How to put on a split ring ball stretcher - the two halves
In the picture above you can see how the "split" ring is actually two halves. This design is key to getting your balls to fit, getting the ball weight to rest properly and to get it to stay on. I also have a magnetic ball weight but if I hit it wrong or during sex play that sucker tends to pop off. This is not a good thing.
Some guys have commented to me that they also put a lotion on their balls first. I have tried this but then found that my balls get too slippery for me to handle effectively. I also worry about my ball weights sliding off in the heat of the day. (It has happened!)

The PISTON Ball Stretcher
Addison is pictured wearing the 8 Oz. / .23 kg PISTON ball weight. The PISTONS come with an interior diameter of 1.25 or 1.5 inches. We have found that for most guys, anything larger just slides off. This may seem tight but when moving or even sitting, one ball tends to want to 'retreat' back into your body's core. One little ball can pop up and make everything slide on off. Not a good thing.
A lot of men write saying that they want to start out with the largest ball stretcher--but unless you're well-gifted in the ball sac department you will have to work up to that. A great way to get a bigger stretch on your balls is by stacking ball weights. As mentioned above, it's easier to put on several weights rather than just one large one because you have to fit your ball sack into one large tunnel instead of several thinner ones. (This is how I have been able to add weight.)
If you need something wider, the Omega Split Ring is great. Our 'junque' gets wider as it gets closer to our body so the wider interior diameter of the Omega (1-3/4 or 1 7/8") fits really well on top of the regular ball weight--even if you don't have enough drop in your ball sac to fit an additional ball weight. In addition, your normal ball weight keeps everything from slipping off.

Why Wear a Ball Stretcher?
So why wear them at all? They feel awesome as they tug your scrotum and stretch out your ball sac.
It also prevents your balls from retracting upwards when you reach orgasm--this prolongs it and increases the intensity.
Many men report that they have more cum when wearing a ball stretcher.
In Tantric practice it is recommended that you stretch your balls manually (or use your ball weight) for several minutes a day for better sexual health and well-being.
Sexual partners often like the rhythm of the weight banging against them--another erogenous touch at a time when every nerve ending is hyper sensitive.
When you have one (or more) on, your balls become more sensitive to every touch, stroke, tickle, lick, nipple or slap. You may find yourself whimpering--just a little bit!
Lastly, when you take it off, you experience another sort of sensation--hop in the shower, soap up and start playing and tugging. You may find there is another bullet in your gun!

Quarter Screw Cockring
The Quarter Screw is part of the Robo series—these rings are all amazingly comfortable (I’m wearing a Full Screw C ring right now.) Minimalist, thin, with the interior comfort fit; you may forget you even have it on until that special one walks by. Then blood rushes in to your cock and pumps you up! Your handy Quarter Screw keeps it from leaving so your prick stays thicker, harder, longer and more sensitive.
The Quarter Screw is the narrowest of the Robo Collection aluminum rings at .3 inches (8 mm).This penis ring is gear essentials'lightest ring weighing in at .85 ounces (24.1 grams). It is extremely comfortable because it has been designed with the ROBO Cock exaggerated comfort fit interior rim. This is the perfect ring for wear-all-day / play-all-night wear.
"Jay, Im loving my new quarterscrew. I wear it all the time, not just for funtime.
"Its easy to get on and off and feels great all day.
"Ive even caught a couple of coworkers checking out my package :)
The Quarter Screw is the narrowest of three siblings. The Half Screw is the next size wider at .6 inches (15.2 mm) bandwidth and the largest is the Full Screw at .9 inches (22.8 mm) wide. All feature the comfort interior fit--you are sure to find the size that suits you best.
Adam added: "Thanks for the good work keeping me up!"

Quarter Screw Glans Ring
Addison is also wearing the Quarter Screw glans ring. This is a head-popping extension of gear essentials' ROBO Series'. Like the cock rings, it is crafted from solid light-weight aluminum. This head ring is extremely comfortable. It's lightweight so it doesn't feel like it is dragging your dick down. All of gear essentials'glans rings feature the squared interior fit to resist slipping over your corona when flaccid. The ring fits very nicely beneath the cap of your cock.
Even when flaccid the head of your dick will be bigger than usual (as you can see from the picture above). This is especially true when it's paired with a penis ring. It gets even bigger when you are hard. Your dick is already chubbed up from your cock ring (remember, blood flows in and the penis ring keeps it all from rushing right out again) but the glans ring makes your dick head even bigger than normal! It is a totally hot look and feel.
