Thank you for acknowledging the attention to detail that was required to bring this project to fruition… it has been a real learning experience for sure.
In answer to your questions…
The vacuum is isolated within the chamber as the base of said chamber is cinched down into place over the tapered inner lip of the vac-seal. This further compresses the Sabre Skin onto the shaft for an air-tight seal.
The glans cap with vacuum channels will contribute to this effect but is not necessarily needed depending on your preferred set-up for a given session.
Here are a couple of images from the comprehensive user manual included with the kit…
This image illustrates how the components are aligned to create an airtight seal with the tapered inner lip of the Vac-Seal (hatch lines) to create a clamping effect on the Sabre Skin over the shaft behind the glans (no tape).
The second image (with tape) does not include the Glans Cap, however, the seal is not compromised in any way, so the set-up is a matter of preference, which can be determined with a bit of experience. I personally like and use both methods.
Btw. there are 4 basic methods described in the user manual, however, there are a wide array of potential sub-variants for users to explore and discover on their own and share as well.
These two set-ups demonstrate the utility of having multiple closely sized Chambers available in each kit. Btw, although you would think that including the Glans Cap would require a larger chamber size… the reality is that the glans is compressed so that a smaller Chamber is more effective. Whereas, the tape only method allows the glans to expand under vacuum with the chamber walls precisely fitted to limit risk of over expanding the glans. The fit can be fine tuned with more or less tape, as required. Level of engorgement effectively modulates the fit for a secure grip when using the Glans Cap.
The accessory ADS system which is used for all day stretching (sold separately) includes ankle, knee and waist belts for extension down the leg, across the waist or over the shoulder. For the purpose of concealment it is recommended to purchase an even smaller chamber size (available to kit owners at discounted prices) as it is required for setting up in the completely flaccid condition.
The completely flaccid set-up is not recommended for high intensity/short duration extension training with heavy weight, for which Glans-Lock™ with full engorgement is highly recommended to create a cement like bond between the glans and Chamber walls to effectively eliminate slippage under heavy traction. The user manual goes into detail on the principal of Glans-Lock™ among other innovative new ideas.
Traditionally, chambers are sized at a specific level of engorgement for purchase of a single “recommended” chamber size or at best small, medium, and large options which are typical cause for sub par performance. The reality is, users need a range of chamber sizes to optimize the fit for any number of methods and levels of engorgement. What Stealth has learnt over the past 12 years, if anything, is that highly creative users inevitably tend to customize to meet their own particular specifications… therefore, we always look to offer choices rather than impose authoritative rules with subsequent limitations.
Having said that, various tapes and taping methods are suggested in the user manual but experimentation will determine individual preference. The tapes provided will last for quite some time, depending, and are available at relatively insignificant cost per use. Use of the Glans Cap will eliminate all but the most essential tape which is required in minimal amounts to protect the urinary meatus or pee hole.
Once you have the kit in hand, have studied the user manual, and experimented with a bit practice you will get a much better understanding of the individual components and various combinations and methods with more specific questions and possibly some new ideas to share yourself.
All the best!
