Thanks to the amazing people at SexToy.com I was sent a product that I think is possibly one of the best inventions I’ve ever seen! Seriously! It’s amazing!!
Not only has this product made “bath time” much more fun… it’s also saved my ass on the few occasions when my “clutzy gene” took over. Yes, not only am I blonde but I’m also a clutz.
What a great combo.
So what is it that I’m raving about? well it’s the Dual Locking Suction Handle; a handle that you stick to the wall in the shower that’s designed to make shower sex not only a much more comfortable experience, but also one that is lot easier on you and your partner.
Even though the handle was designed for sexual purposes while in the shower, I think that it’s also pretty damn amazing for other reasons:
*It’s great if you’re sick and just want something to add that little extra support while bathing, whether it be in the shower or getting in and out of the tub.
*It’s also great if you’re someone who’s very physically active and often experiences sore and aching muscles after exercising; something that can make getting in or out of a tub really painful.
*On that note, if you are someone that tends to swim as a means of exercising, it’s great for sticking to the wall of the pool and either exercising your arms (pulling and pushing away from the wall) or while kicking.
*If you are someone that tends to go out and have “evenings on the town” (i.e. downs enough drinks to make the room spin) this is a perfect product for when you’re hungover and still have the spins the next day.
*Aside from that it’s also great if you are someone who is a little older and needs some help getting in or out of the shower, or if you just need something to lean on while you bathe.
I’ll be honest, it’s partly because this product could be used for so many non sexual purposes that I really and truly do love it and would recommend it to anyone. No questions asked.
Other then the obvious reasons, I love the Dual Locking Suction Handle because it’s lightweight, easy to use, stable, secure, and can be used on most smooth surfaces. If you don’t have a smooth surface, it will also suction to tiles, just make sure that they are at least 4 inches in size.
As for the stats, the Dual Locking Suction Handle measures 11 ½ inches across (the bottom) from suction cup to suction cup and is about 14 ½ inches across the handle (over the top/from suction cup to suction cup). The suction cups are 4 inches by 4 inches in size. That said, it should fit most showers without too much of a problem.
Safety Tips & Suggestions
Before I tell you how to use it I’m going to offer a few tips that I learned when I was testing it that I think will be very, very helpful.
*Make sure to use a clean smooth surface that is free of soap, shampoo or any residue that most bathing products can produce. Not only will this help the product to initially suction to the surface but it also helps to keep it from sliding.
*I suggest giving it 24 hours to “settle” before using it. When I first stuck mine to the shower it was stable but it did slide, which I’ll be honest kind of scared me. However, when I went in the shower the next day this baby was pretty much glued to the wall and was NOT moving! Thank God for that as it was a “clutzy day” :s
*Always test it first to make sure it is secure BEFORE you use it. Trust me, you do not want to take a nose dive while in the shower. Two words, Ceramic. Hurts.
*If you’re going to use it in something like a Jacuzzi make sure not to place it near where the bubbles come out. If you do they will most likely blow this bad boy off. Not to mention you might break the jet.
*If you have tiles in your shower make sure to place the suction cups in the center which will keep them from getting any little air pockets underneath which might cause them to fall off.
*Wetting the suction cups before use can help them to stick to the wall. They don’t have to be soaking wet, and you don’t even have to we them, but I found that they worked a bit better then when they were dry. Of course you might have different results so I suggest you try and see what works for you.
*Finally, if you’re not sure if one will support your weight I suggest you get two Locking Suction Handles and use them at the same time which will take some of pressure off and possibly make them a bit more stable. At under $15.00 each (which is a steal!!) I think that’s more then reasonable and an easy enough solution.
How To Use
Now, as for using the Handle it’s actually very, very easy;
Located on either side of the product are 2 flip levers. Simply flip them into the upright position (so that they stick up in the air, away from the product) which will release the suction cup. Then take a little bit of water and wet each suction cup. Once they are wet place them on the smooth surface or in the center of the tile and give a little push to make sure they are flat with no air pockets underneath. Press down on the flip levers until you hear them click in place and you’re done.
Seriously, it’s so easy!
To remove it just flip the levers up and the suction cups should release. If you find that they are still stuck just use the little tab located on each suction cup and give a pull to fully release them.
As for cleaning, since this is a shower product you don’t really have to worry as that will take care of itself. That said, if they start to feel a little oily or as if there is soap residue on them just give them a good rinse and they should be fine.
As for the negatives the only thing I didn’t like was the packaging; it’s quite sexual in nature
and in that tacky ‘we don’t give a shit about peoples discretion’ way. But then again, you’re just going to toss the box out anyways so who cares really.
*On that note, for those of you that wanted to purchase it as a gift for someone you could always just remove the box and give it in a gift bag. There is nothing on the product itself to say where it came from so you don’t have to worry.
I really don’t think there is much else I can say about the Dual Locking Suction Handle, as I said before I think it’s one of the most amazing products I’ve seen to date, especially because it’s so easy to use, practical, reasonably priced at under $15.00 each and pretty much anyone could use it.
For those of you that are interested, or think this is as cool a product as I do, the company also makes a full range of products including a Single Locking Suction Foot Rest, Suction Cup Hand Cuffs, Dual Shower Head, Vibrating Sponge, a Single Locking Suction Handle and a few other products that I’m sure you might enjoy.
*Unfortunately I haven’t tried any of these products yet so I can’t tell you if they’ll live up to my expectations. That said, if any of you have please let me know in the comments section about your experience with them.
For those of you interested the Dual Locking Suction Handle can be purchased safely and discretely from SexToy.com where you’ll find a large selection of Vibrators and other great sex toys that great companies like Sportsheets make.
