How to Use Penis Extender for Maximum Penis Size Extension (Guide)

It’s very easy to fail while trying to lengthen your penis, mostly due to the method you choose to use or procedure you elect. Stretching your penis is a task meant only for those with the utmost dedication and determination – in other words, for the individual who wants the most out of life.

If you can relate to these qualities, penis stretching techniques are your best option if you want to add a few extra inches to your current size. Forget about surgery. Seriously. So what are the best ways to stretch?

Mechanized Extension – Better Than The Rest

how to use a penis extension

Penis extension is a variant of stretching that involves attaching a small unobtrusive device to your penis. You may already be thinking this is crazy, but this method is actually the only form of penis enlargement that has been proven clinically to lengthen your penis. The device you used is known as a penis extender. They are also referred to as a traction device or penis stretcher.

All the device does is apply a constant stretch that you will not feel – for the most part (some tension will be felt as your penis adapts). All you have to do is increase traction tension (stretching tension), add additional extension rods, and clean your device.

Becoming accustomed to this practice will pay off over a series of months – hint hint, a longer penis. It’s that simple and there is nothing difficult about using a mechanized stretcher other than overcoming the mental aspect of what you are doing.

Do Penis Extenders Fit All Size Penis? Do They Work For All Men?

So will a penis extender fit all size penis? Better yet, will they fit comfortably?

If your penis is considered normal or average size then yes, any penis extender will fit comfortably. Average penis size varies around the world, but if you fall within 2 – 3 inches in girth and 5 – 6.5 inches in length, flaccid, you will be able to use a penis extender for enhancement or enlargement.

Will A Penis Extender Fit If I Am Below Average?

Not all will. Some devices are built generically with nothing specific in mind. If you are just below average, most devices will fit, but if you are significantly below average or have a condition that makes your penis small, then you will have to choose a brand that comes with specific components that are designed to help with a very small penis.

Will A Penis Extender Fit If I Am Above Average?

Yes. Unless your girth is way above average, then you might need a special fastener attachment piece, front (head) piece, and basal ring. If you are extraordinarily long, you’ll need to choose a brand that offers extension rods that measure out enough distance to accommodate your blessed size.

Do You Have To Use A Penis Extender Differently If You Are Bigger Or Smaller Than Average?

In general, they will all fit relatively the same. The difference for someone who is below average means that they will need to use shorter extension rods, possibly only one fastener attachment piece if you buy an upgraded extender with an advanced attachment system, will need to tighten the fastener tighter more compared to average – above average guys, and will need to remove the device occasionally to allow blood to fully circulate through your penis.

For guys who are above average, you will need to use extension rods that measure out further, are fully capable of using an extender that is equipped with two fastener attachments, will need to tighten the device a bit less to secure it to your penis, and while not necessary as much remove the device occasionally to allow blood circulation to return to its natural routine.

Who Can Benefit The Most From Using a Penis Extender?

Men that fall within an average range will have the most to benefit from. Smaller than average will benefit greatly and larger than average men will benefit the least. Overall, every guy can benefit from a penis extender given a human error is negated and the right brand is used as specified.

Do You Need Comfort Components When Using a Penis Extender?

This is a situation where you should ask yourself, “Is it better to be safe or sorry?”. You will have to purchase an upgraded package from a reputable brand if you want a comfortable penis extender, which means the price may be higher.

You should be well aware that your penis is sensitive, so why risk agitation, discomfort, or possibly unbearable pain if it takes only a bit more investment?

Take a look at the Jes Extender and their premium packages and you will be able to determine what a true comfort system looks like and what it can do for you.

The Core Components That Makeup A Penis Extender

A penis extender’s body is composed of three major areas. The Basal ring, which is the base ring that presses against your pelvis and where your penis is inserted, the extension arms, where the traction tension springs are housed and the elongation bars connect, and the front piece, where the elongation bars connect at the front end of the device and where the fasteners are connected.

We will be focusing on the elongation arms and a few of the components that are built into both the left and rights arms.

The Extension Arms

Two extension arms comprise the middle portion of a penis extender. Both arms are made up of these major components: Two hand screws, two hexagonal cylinders, and two rounded cylinders to house the tension springs.

Now that you are familiar with the components used to increase traction tension, the next step is to actually adjust the device to increase and decrease tension.

How To Adjust Traction Tension

You can learn how to increase and decrease traction tension by either watching my video or reading the step by step instructions below. You are going to be turning the hand screws shown in the picture below.


Step By Step Instructions

These instructions are based on adjusting traction for SizeGenetics or X4 Labs.

  1. You first need to locate the hand screws on both extension arms.

  2. right_handscrew

    To increase traction tension for SizeGenetics right arm, turn the hand screw counterclockwise. Turn clockwise to decrease traction tension.

  3. left_handscrew

    To increase tension for the left arm, turn the hand screw counter clockwise. To decrease tension, turn the hand screw clockwise.

NOTE: To increase traction tension for both arms of the X4 Labs Penis extender, turn BOTH hand screws counter clockwise. To decrease tension, turn BOTH hand screws clockwise.

Traction Adjustment Is Device Specific

I’ve shown you how to increase and decrease traction tension using the two penis extenders I own. Your device may require alternate action. Now that you are aware of the general guidelines on how to increase a penis extenders traction tension, please search through our blog if you are unfamiliar with the operation of a penis extender.

Top 3 Penis Extender Support Systems

A penis extender without a support system is like an apple missing its core. To use a device of this stature means you must use all of its supporting features. The backbone is an array of components that allow any one of the best penis extenders to fit the shape and size of your penis, fit comfortably when attached, its defined safety precautions, and most importantly its effectiveness.

This article will show you the best three support systems that accompany elite penis extender brands and why they make any of these devices worth purchasing. They are recommended in the order they are presented below. For any specific questions regarding a particular brand, each section will have a link to the associated articles. You can also contact support here.

X4 Labs 58 Way Quad Support System

The X4 Extender is equipped with the best support system available. This system enables its user to choose one of the fifty-eight different ways to wear the device while it encourages your penis to grow. The major portion of the X4 extenders support system that makes it so great is its ‘Quad’ systematic approach to penis enlargement.

In a nutshell, this allows two fasteners to be used to attach the device to your penis simultaneously. Two attachments points distribute traction stretching tension along two separate points of the shaft, helping improve blood flow and increase the effectiveness of stretching tension.

Among the various useful components you get, the three fastener options help you choose how the device attaches to your penis and what it feels like since the fastener is usually in direct contact with your shaft. With X4 however, additional comfort components are used with the fastener of your choice to improve how the quad support works.

These are the three fasteners you have to choose from: medical grade silicon tubes, ultra-fit velcro straps, or ribbed straps. Two of each are included and since the device is capable of harnessing two fasteners at the same time, you can choose your choice of two to combine or two of a kind. That’s just how sensitive some men are down there!

Additionally, you can combine your fastener choices with memory foam padding or insulators – combining four components together to create a quad support system like no other. Padding or insulators add an additional cushioned layer for optimum comfort, of which is totally optional. All you have to do from here is choose a series of components and let your penis become bigger all on its own with the help of X4.

Quick Extender Pro Double Strap Support ‘DSS’ System

Just like the X4 extender’s quad support system, Quick Extender Pro’s DSS system is able to harness the stretching power of two fasteners. Unlike X4 however, the DSS system is not a true quad support system, rather utilizing a dual front piece that is equipped with four circular slots to accommodate two noose fasteners.

While limited in options, two attachment points give this extender the ability to exert stretching tension along two portions of your penis. Not only is this extra grip and attachment, but the quickest way to make your penis bigger safely with minimal effort.

Basically, the DSS support system requires half the gripping tension, improving blood flow due to the noose fasteners blood restrictive design, better distribution of stretching power to make the device more effective, and ultimately more safe since the device does not need a death grip to stay attached to your shaft.

Quick Extender Pro definitely has a one-of-a-kind design but limits itself in the options department. Regardless, this extender helps you get bigger in a safer manner, works more effectively, all while doing its best to remain unobtrusive and discrete. A definite consideration for any serious penis enlargement enthusiast ready to make a change for the better.

SizeGenetics 58 Way Comfort System

Similar to the X4 extender’s 58-way support system, SizeGenetics offers just the same, but with a twist. The SizeGenetics extender features 58 different wearable options, however, with SG, there is no quad support. Instead, SizeGenetics comes with enough components so that you can combine them in 58 different ways.

Like Quick Extender Pro, SG uses a hybrid support piece, but with two extra slots in the mix for the inclusion of strap fasteners. Unlike Quick Extender Pro, SG comes with three fasteners choices: a comfort strap, velcro strap, and silicon noose, similar to the X4 support system. You can only use one at a time, which is typical of a penis extender. Those that harness the power of just one lose out on more effective traction stretching, grip, and blood circulation within your penis, but SizeGenetics is a different story.

Yes, you only get one fastener option at a time, but to overcome blood restriction for example, you can use one of the two strap attachment options. They overlap a wider area of your penis for a better grip and reduce the chance of blood restriction. The overall effectiveness of a one fastener only penis extender is not that much less, but two makes a considerable difference.

Like I mentioned above, you get enough components to combine them in 58 different ways. With the three fastener options, you also get these components to mix and match: 2 headpieces, one latex head grip for gel-like padding and superior grip plus a black matte velcro strap for those that want to ensure the SizeGenetics extender does not fall off. Padding for both strap fasteners is included, but not for the noose attachment.

If you add up the component count, it does not seem like very many, but the ways you can combine them add up fast. SizeGenetics is definitely generous with options, especially towards comfort and grip components, so if effectiveness is not the top on your list, this may be the best penis extender for you.

Beginner Penis Extension Routine: Setting Yourself Up For Success

Everyone has to start somewhere. You may already be educated on the topic of penile extension or you may know nothing at all. This section provides step-by-step instruction, advice, and suggestions on how to begin your PE treatment using a penis extender. For demonstrative purposes, I will be referencing the SizeGenetics extender and its 58-way comfort tech system. You can apply everything you learn from this routine to practically any of the best penis extenders on the market today.

Much of this information is based on my course of treatment spanning 1 year and 6 months. I successfully added over 2 inches in length and over 1 inch in girth. This does not mean it will work for you, however, your outcome could end up better than mine. I suggest you use this information as a testimonial of sorts. Please read the disclaimer at the bottom of this page.

Knowing What You Have And What It Is Capable Of

The first step to setting yourself up for success is by purchasing a penis extender package, not just a PE device. It helps to be educated on the matters at hand, however, you’ll be able to learn quickly from a seasoned practitioner – me!

What you need to lengthen your penis at least two inches are as follows:

  • A penis extender device

  • Interchangeable and multifunctional comfort-oriented components

  • Fastener attachment piece(es)

  • At least a one-year time frame (This guide is based around 1.5 years) consisting of frequent and regular traction sessions

  • A journal to document progress and your device’s setup

It also helps if you have options to choose from. Being able to customize your device based on what you find comfortable and the size and shape of your penis help improve results, safety, and your experience.

I suggest you teach yourself about Advanced Jelqing Techniques and other penis enlargement exercises as they directly improve length and width results and will also improve the results of your penile traction device.

Use A Device That Exerts Sufficient Traction Stretching Tension

The device you choose will also allow you to set the traction tension level. You will need to be able to set it to its lowest amount and also 1500 grams, 1800 grams, and 2100 grams. Anything above this 2100 grams should be used only by advanced practitioners.


I am absolutely serious. You need to record everything. You need to measure your penis before you begin, frequently all throughout treatment, and at the very end. You also need to note what specific components you use and traction tension levels. It should look something like this:

January 1st, 2019 – Week 1 ( EXAMPLE DATA)

Use Per Day – Week 1

Mon – 3 hours

Tues – 3 hours

Wed – 3 hours

Thurs – 3 hours

Fri – Recovery day

Sat – 3 hours

Sun – 3 hours

Size Measurements

Flaccid Length – 4.2 inches

Erect Length – 6.8 inches

Flaccid Circumference – 3.7 inches

Erect Circumference – 5.1 inches

Device Setup – Week 1

Traction Tension – 1200 grams

Components – Week 1

Strap fastener + comfort padding


Jelqing – Every 2 hours per traction consisting of 10 Jelq repetitions

You should record this data every week. Your journal will be very large at one point, but it helps overcome the plateau effect (lack of gains) and helps you progress safely in conjunction with using your time wisely.

Phase One: Months 1 – 5

Now that you have a better picture of what to do, what you need, and what you are in for, it is now time to start practicing.

Weeks 1 – 4

This is the time frame where your penis will be adjusting to traction tension and when you will be adjusting to having a device strapped to your penis.

  1. Set your penis extenders traction tension level to its lowest amount. I set mine to 1200 grams

  2. Wear your device 3 hours every day, permitting one full day of recovery

  3. (Optional) – Perform Jelqs after every 2 hours of traction (10 repetitions)

  4. Ensure your device is clean and your hygiene is up to par

  5. Once half way through week 3, increase traction to 1300 grams and continue to the end of week 4

  6. Document EVERYTHING

Be sure to monitor instances of discomfort such as lack of sensation, discoloration, pain, and anything relevant if they are encountered. Document your observations and feelings and adjust your setup until the problems are solved and continue on.

Weeks 5 – 10

Your penis should look bigger in general at this point. You should feel accustom to your device by now and steadily progressing. Here is what you should do next.

  1. With your extender set at 1300 grams of traction, leave it this way for a few more weeks. Add more elongation bars if needed. I added half inch bars on top of the one inch bars I started with due to my current size.

  2. Adjust component setup if needed and continue everything you have been doing through weeks 1 – 4.

  3. Increase wear time to 4 hours per day, allowing for 1 – 2 days of rest.

  4. (Optional) You should be Jelqing twice a day now – 10 sets, totaling 40 Jelqs per day

  5. Halfway through week 9, increase traction tension to 1400 grams and continue to week 10.


Be very observant, check for error, it is easy to waste a week or two, and

Weeks 10 – 20

By now you should feel comfortable and using your penis extender should feel like second nature, as if you have always been using it. This portion of treatment can be a bit tricky and is a very important time to closely observe results.

  1. Bump traction tension up to 1500 grams at week 11 and begin adding more elongation bars if necessary. At this point, I was using half an inch and one-inch elongation bars

  2. If your device feels slightly off (not sliding off), adjust component setup. I did, switching from using SizeGenetics strap fastener to the noose fastener

  3. Follow the same steps from weeks 5 – 10

  4. Continue 4-hour traction sessions. Jump from 4 to 5 hours after week 15. Permit 1 – 2 days of rest.

  5. (Optional) You should now be Jelqing after every two hours your penis is subject to traction.

  6. Remain at 1500 grams of traction up until week 20.


Ensuring progression is critical during weeks 10 – 20. This is the first portion of your treatment where you may encounter the plateau effect (lack of gains). If you are not progressing, consider increasing traction tension or adding longer elongation bars.

I was hit by a wave of plateau’s and actually gave up for a few weeks. That was very bad on my part, so do not give up! Keep at it! If I knew your exact situation, I could give you more guidance!

Say Goodbye To Being A Beginner

If you have completed everything up to week 20 and notice at least a one inch gain in length (minimal expansion in circumference if you have not been practicing Jelqing), you are and will continue to set yourself up for success.

You have officially graduated from a novice penis enlargement and are ready to start intermediate routine.

Exercise Based Penis Stretching – The Most Popular Method

Everyone has exercised at some point in their life. Penis stretching exercises are much, MUCH easier than exercises most of us are familiar with. Using your hand, you simply grasp your penis and pull it slightly for a brief period of time. This is the foundation for exercise based stretching. Is it the best option?

No, exercise is not the best option since not a single technique has ever been proven. Many exercises have lasted the test of time and have been in practice for thousands of years, passed down through each generation, dating back to early middle eastern times.

Since their proof is anecdotal by nature, using penis stretching exercises can be slightly un-nerving since results may appear slow or not to what you expected. What I can say is that they can work – at least based on my experiences with them in combination of using a penis extender and the hundreds, if not thousands of user experiences and testimonials men have spoken of online.

Exercise is best left open to interpretation until you perform your own research and read what others have said. The best resources are free guides that have been put together by individuals who have used them and have successfully gained from their use. Hence research is key and until you perform your own is when you’ll discover whether stretching exercises are the preferred option for you.

Why Not Extend & Stretch?

This is a great idea! Using exercises and a penis extender during the same course of treatment can prove to be very rewarding. On the flip side, too much stretching can delay gains and equal out to a small degree of pain.

Overworking any part of your body can cause soreness or pain, but if you give your penis time to rest and recuperate then it will grow longer and thicker naturally. Oh, and it will become permanently bigger too if you maintain your health.

For more resources, explore the menu at the top of this page. You’ll find links to all sorts of valuable and useful resources spread about each and every post, so be sure to read and then read some more.

The more you know the more you grow – Hope you picked up the hint – the best routine you can establish is extending with a penis extender and exercises with stretching techniques.
