DTR Bell with Elastic strap
This is a knee support made by a company called McDavid.
Supports like this can be found online or in just about any health care department in a department store or drugstore.
Now I can adjust the tension to whatever I feel like using.
This can be worn under pants with no problems of being noticed. I never wore it with tight pants but I have used it with jeans and other clothing with no one ever suspecting anything.
This method of restoring is the basic way men have been restoring for many years. This is a great way to start especially if you have very little loose skin to start with.
This is an easy tugging anchoring base to use. There are many ways to anchor an elastic strap to use the DTR Bell as a tugging unit. This is just one example of how to do it.
After many years of requests I now have elastic straps available to be used with the DTR. The Estrap is a fully adjustable three-quarter inch wide durable elastic strap that features a ladder lock adjustable buckle.
This strap can easily be adjusted even while wearing it simply by pulling on one end of the strap.
The strap itself is 16 inches long, with the ability to go from 3 to 30 inches of elastic capability.
I chose to use a ladder lock style buckle over the traditional buckle that is used with most adjusting straps. The reason for this was using a ladder lock buckle gives you the ability to make very fast adjustments to increase tension or loosen the tension.
The Estrap is available on the parts page or you can make a do it yourself version with a few items such as elastic strap material and a couple of safety pins.
The Estrap clips onto the DTR tugging rod ( that comes with each DTR kit ).
The information below will show how this strap can be used with a support brace such as a Mcdavid brand for example.
Once the brace is placed comfortably on the leg, the strap can be quickly attached to the small tug clip that comes with every DTR kit.
I like using the support brace since I can move the brace anywhere on my lower leg and it stays put plus is very comfortable.
I prefer to use a support brace that fits snug below my knee. Since braces such as this come in many sizes and shapes finding one that works is very easy to do.
Removing this device can be done very quickly by either un-clipping the tug Rod or turning the stainless steel hold screw that is holding the tug Rod in place.
A simple pull on the strap and I can adjust tighten or loosen the tension.
You can be creative and use just about anything for something to anchor the end of the strap to. You could even use an ace bandage wrapped just below the knee. Possibly even an above the calf sock could work.
The strap now has a suspender clasp so that it can clamp onto just about anything.
This is the easiest solution for a quickly adjustable easily attachable elastic strap used for tugging.
Starting Jan 1 2017 the tug rod has been replaced by a tug pin. So using a hold screw is no longer needed that kept the older tug.
New pin replaces old tug rod.
