Can anyone restore ?
With all the recent interest in foreskin restoring I want to address a few issues some men will have when trying to use a restoring device for the first time.
There are some issues with anatomy that can make restoring very difficult to start. Especially if using a device is the primary way to restore.

G.T.S.R ( Glans to shaft ratio ) This is just what it sounds like. Gland width compared to shaft width. The optimum situation is Subject A to my left.
Subject A
Subject B
The process of restoring is to take shaft skin and coax it over the glans.  This is much easier when the glans width is the same size or smaller then the shaft width when Flaccid.
Subject A has been restoring for a little more then a month using the DTR and is having good results.
Subject B has a much different anatomy then subject A, The glans are much wider then the shaft and stay plump even when flaccid.
Even though this person has some slack in his shaft skin when flaccid he is having a very difficult time using a restoring device.
The DTR bell it is about the same width of the shaft but the glans are very plump when flaccid and can't seem to squeeze down enough to coax the skin over the glans and onto the DTR bell.
Subject B
If the glans when flaccid are much wider then the shaft  using a restoring device can be very difficult especially if the glans can not be deflated and stay plump when flaccid like this person on the left.
A solution to this may be using the T-tape method or manual tugging until the shaft skin can be coaxed over the glans to attach a device.
Penis size isn't as big an issue as one may think but, there needs to be some "material" to work with behind the glans in order for a restoring device to hold onto.
Having some shaft skin is more important then overall penis size. The skin shaded in yellow is what will be stressed in order to stimulate skin growth to eventually cover the glans with.

Behind the glans
Over the glans
This DTR user is using skin very close to the base of the penis to use as the anchor point of attachment.
A restoring device needs some skin to be attached to. The more skin available the easier this step is to accomplish.
In this picture I am showing my penis after month one of restoring. I was lucky to have some shaft skin when I started. The area in yellow is the skin that would be attached to a restoring device.
If there is no shaft skin to work with it can be very difficult to use a restoring device.

This anchor point is going to vary from one guy to the next depending on available shaft skin. So it's not the length of the penis but the available skin behind the glans thats important.
Someone with a long penis shaft who has a tight circumcison may have a harder time starting then someone with a short penis shaft with a loose circumcision.
Restoring in progress
This person does not have a large penis shaft when flaccid but because there was something to work with he was able to restore using a device.
