    This is a review for the A275, A275-1 and The Arc, model which all are interchangeable names for the same item found on eBay, Amazon, and DHgate. This product came in a clear plastic bag which included the base ring and tube assembled with the lock, two keys and a urethral tube uninstalled (as it is optional).

    I disassembled and cleaned the whole product .which is made of 304 stainless steel with a sponge and dish washing soap. It was quite dirty and has some rough, non polished inside surfaces which will need to be wet sanded with 400 grit/1000 grit sandpaper. for a better finish. I did not wash the lock, however I did apply graphite and work the key in, out and twist. I then put it on to test for fit.

    The device comes with only one base ring. You select from three sizes when ordering 40mm, 45mm, and 50 mm in a drop down box. I ordered the 45mm based on my simple measurement in diameter with a tape measure and converted to inches. This item comes with an anatomically curved base ring which I found quite simple to put on once flaccid and very, very comfortable. I placed each testicle through one at a time then compressed my penis and manipulated it through the base ring with almost no issues.

    Next I attempted to place my glans in the 33 mm shaft tube. This proved more difficult than I expected as I apparently have good girth in my penis. Over time I managed to shrink enough to force things into place. There are two metal guide pins which slide into holes in the base ring before the locking mechanism can be engaged. There was a minor amount of pinching since I used no lubricant and I was still quite swolen.

    After installation I managed to remove the shaft cage just enough to push more shaft skin into it which helped tremendously.

    I attempted a sit and pee which worked out pretty good over all. There is a lot more pressure than I am used to with no cage, perhaps that will change over time as I become more relaxed in the devices wear.

    Over all impression - Its very comfortable, much smaller than I though (or perhaps I'm bigger), and I'm not sure that I will ever use the urethral insert. Good to have though. There is still a lot of skin making contact with my underwear offering more stimulation than I thought there would be. The packaging is fine. I don't get the draw to having a box or bag that you are just going to throw away. My cost was $18.99 for a Chinese device shipped from New York to my home in three days.

    I might order the bigger one. but I do like how small the profile is on this one. I also might still order a plastic Holy Trainer Knock off so that I can have less stimulation. They do make a smaller model with spiked anti erection/pullout device. I also think that the anti erection device can be purchased separately. You can also order a bigger or smaller ring separately. I'll post pictures later.

    This is your first device, isn't it? It will be interesting to find out how you get on over the next few days. You will get lots of advice, much of it contradictory, but until you spend a few weeks getting used to the device you won't know what works best for you.

    Hi @Jasmic68 ! Yes, this is my first device. The advice that I had gotten online was to get a device that was as small as I am at my smallest. In accordance with that, the base ring fits nicely. I really don't see any way for slippage. The curve of the base ring is very nice. The issue is, although I can get the cage on, my glans overfills the end of the cage and my shaft ends up mostly pushed inside of my body. This pushes the base ring out from my body by a solid inch even when not erect. I have a feeling that I may need to order a larger cage. I can't imagine how much pulling will happen when I get a real erection. I have seen plenty of pictures of everybody's junk in a device on here. Mine does not look like that.

    With an erection my glans is almost double the diameter of the tube and would fill the whole tube lengthwise. It's a tight fit already... Scary.

    I will attempt to say this with modesty: Apparently, all of those years of looking at porn made me think that I'm not that big. Perhaps it was a matter of perspective. Perhaps I did not measure correctly. Maybe I'm just one of those lucky guys who is just above average and didn't realize it. No matter what the reason I think I need a longer cage.

    Unlike other established chastity devices, Chinese devices do not appear to have well described parts or a parts list.
    I am going to have to come up with a labeling and definition system for the parts of the device so that descriptions are more understandable.

    Catheter Assembly - Combined parts of the urethral insert tip, Catheter tube, catherter male screw tip, and catheter female nut
    Urethral Insert Tip - Metal tip at the insertion end of the catheter tube
    Catheter Tube - Plastic tube attached to the urethral insert tip and catheter male screw tip.
    Catheter Male Screw Tip - metal threaded male tip attached to the catheter tube
    Catheter Female Nut - nut which attaches the catheter male screw tip and thus the catheter tube to the outside of the device

    Penis Tube Assembly - Metal penis shaft cover assembly which consists of the urethral hole, glans cap, penis tube ring 1,2,and 3, two ring attachment pins and lock coupling
    Urethral Hole - Metal circle in the center of the glans cap which allows the attachment of the catheter assembly to the chastity tube.
    Glans Cap - Bars that are assembled in a radiating fashion which cover the end of the penis Tube Attachment
    Shaft ring 1 - Metal ring that is attached to the Glans Cap attached to the other rings by the bottom weld
    Shaft ring 2 - Metal ring in the center position attached to the other rings by the bottom weld
    Shaft ring 3 - Metal ring nearest the scrotum gap which has the two ring attachment pins and the single lock coupling. It is attached to the other rings by the bottom weld
    Ring Attachment Pins - Metal pins that extend from Shaft ring 3 on either side of the lock coupling which fit into ring attachment pin holes stabilizing the entire unit
    Shaft Lock Coupling - The coupling on the penis tube assembly allowing attachment to the Contoured Base Ring to be locked by the sliding lock assembly
    Bottom weld - The area at the bottom of the penis tub attachment where the three shaft rings are joined via weld

    Contoured Base Ring - Ring which goes around the shaft of the penis and the scrotal sack at the base of the penis holding the entire unit onto the body consisting of the ring itself, the ring attachment pin holes, and the base ring lock coupling
    Ring Attachment Pin Holes - Small holes drilled into the ring on either side of the base ring lock coupling in to which the ring attachment pins on the penis tube assembly go
    Base Ring Lock Coupling - The coupling on the contoured base ring allowing the shaft lock coupling to be locked by the sliding lock assembly

    Sliding Lock Assembly - Sliding Brass Lock
    Keys - Used to unlock the sliding brass lock


    Ok, now that we've got that out of the way...

    Ok, for the update... I put on the A275-1, WITHOUT the urethral tube this morning after my wife left for work at 8:00 am. I was having the same issues as before with having "too much me inside too little device". I sat down and started working on the computer and I continued to deflate, however the size of my glans still seemed to be an issue. the outer edge of my glans either pokes out between Shaft Ring 1 and Shaft Ring 2 like a triceritops head or sticks out between the bars of the glans cap in the shape of a pattypan squash (google it) LOL. I took a piece of masking tape and turned it sticky side out so that it wouldn't stick to my skin, then wrapped it around the outside of the glans cap and the space between shaft ring 1 and shaft ring 2. I left most of the glans cap uncovered in case it had to urinate. Then I put tape face down over the exposed sticky tape. Now I have less exposed skin around the outside of my glans poking out between the bars and rubbing on my underwear. It feels... Or rather doesn't feel great! Keep in mind that I did this prior to becoming fully deflated so it may be unnecessary.

    It's now almost noon. I am very comfortable. I feel like I have no urge to have an erection, I definitely am aware of the device full time, but it's like I've attached something to myself that I've been missing all along. I'm sure that a longer Penis Tube Assembly would be slightly more comfortable, but I have to ask myslef, "Is that what I really want?"

    What do I like about this device?
    Its profile is small and unassuming. I could wear this under any pair of cargo pants at any time on any day and no one would ever know... ever!
    When I'm fully deflated this device feels like it is simply keeping everything in place.
    When I'm sitting, it's quite comfortable.
    I like that I cannot compress my shaft when I get excited like I used to. This thing is stainless steel after all.
    The lock is brass... Won't rust.

    What do I not like?
    The lock is a little wonky. Ok, It's less of the lock and more of the alignment of the base ring lock coupling and the shaft lock coupling. It takes a little wiggling around to get that lock in all the way so that it can turn. I am being extremely careful not to damage the key.
    The keys look weird. I mean why do they need to be so long? The space after the cuts and before the shoulder of the key is too long and completely unnecessary (look up parts of a key). In fact I would say that they make that this design makes the key more fragile.
    It may be too short, but I think I'll keep wearing it daily to figure out if I'm right.

    I already told my wife that I was thinking about ordering the A276. If I do I will probably get a 50mm base ring so that I can swap them out. Hey, at $18.99 each who wouldn't order another one? Anyway, I am really enjoying it and knowing that I couldn't masturbate if I want to is priceless...

    I wore the device for 6 hours today, then removed for family time, and now it's 12:22. I couldn't sleep. As I lay there I felt like something was missing. I got out of bed without waking up my wife, got a drink of water and though, "you know what, I already miss the cage." So I snuck into the other room and I'm going to try sleeping in it tonight. I know it's not part of a planned break in period for me or anything, but I felt so comfortable today once I relaxed, so it's back on and back to bed. Wish me luck with morning erections. I'm kind of hoping that the compression stops them like it did all day and allows me to relax. We'll see.

    By the way @boisub the device did have measurements on eBay, however since I'm a noob, and measuring my penis length and width with a metal tape measure I was bound to get something wrong. Especially since I only had a few seconds to get the measurements right. Push one wrong button and this rocket takes off for space. It all worked out fine in the end though. I kind of like the tight fit when I'm flaccid.

    The measurements on eBay were as follows:
    Total lenght of fully assembled device: 65mm, That's 2.56 inches (I'm assuming that's from top of contoured base ring to farthest end of penis tube assembly)
    Lenght of Penis tube assembly 45mm. That's 1.77 inches (I'm not sure if that's from the ring attachment pins or shaft ring 3 to the end of the urethral hole)
    Inner diameter of the penis tube assembly 33mm. That's 1.30 inches (That seems fine)

    Well time for bed.

    Hi,I have been wearing the A275 smaller version for the last week it's so comfortable haven't needed to remove it for a rest,it has the ureathal insert which I have not used yet,good that it's removable,the only time it gets slightly uncomfortable is morning wood or morning glory as we call it in the uk,but I think that's the same with any cage.if that's not the case I'm sure someone more experienced will let us know.I never measured myself either but the fit is great,always wore a cb 6000s until the A275 arrived which was also extremely comfortable,the advantage of the A275 over the cb6000s is its smaller so it even less noticeable when wearing tight jeans.I took a chance and ordered the 40mm base ring this also is the correct size for me as this fits well.I personally think the chinease cages are excellent value for money.The sizes of the A275 you quoted are correct.

    I have been wearing the a275-1 Arc(3 ring model) 6 hrs during the day, and removing it before family comes back in the house. It is very comfortable as long as I don't become aroused. There is nowhere to grow, so I have been avoiding this site and other stimulating material as much as possible. I have worked outside with no problems wearing cargo shorts while raking leaves, mowing, doing yard work, driving shopping and doing any number of chores around the house. Most of the time I don't even know that it's there.

    I wear jockey style white underwear, which hold the device tight to my body and keeps everything from going down one pants leg or the other. I seem to prefer the device to be facing forward rather than turned to one side and the tight underwear and loose shorts allow that to happen.

    I did sneak it on the first night and slept comfortably with it until 6 am when a morning erection happened. As others have described there was a hot/burning sensation in my scrotal sack. It started at a fold in the skin, then went everywhere as the device was being pulled away from my body by my erection. the gap between my body and the base ring continued to grow as my testicles were pulled closer and closer to the gap between the penis tube assembly and the contoured base ring. There was a minor "I just got kicked in the balls" feeling and I was a little worried about a testicle crush scenario, but was able to relax enough to shrink my manhood and go back to sleep just long enough for the process to start all over again.

    I have to say, it is very exciting having some kind of pain/punishment outside of my own control.

    If you are a wife or Domme reading this and are looking for a good PUNISHMENT DEVICE and your sub or husband is about 3 inches when flaccid and 6 or more when erect, this would be good device to use. Your chaste mate will be fully inside of the device, meaning that any penis growth will take place inside of his body pushing the device away and stretching his testicles and scrotum to the limit.

    There is one minor detail that I am not fond of with this device. Yes, it is metal, that means security, however I can still touch sensitive parts of my penis, and my size pushes lots of skin out through the bars. I think my next device needs to be a full encompassing device. I was worried about cleanliness of a CB-6k, Holy Trainer, or Rikers, but I am starting to think that the extra skin exposure means I am just as well off not wearing a device. The one thing that this device does well is keeping the sensitive underside of my glans behind bars facing down, pressed against my scrotal sack reducing stimulation, however I can touch that part of my glans with my finger, which feels almost too good and could easily cause an accident.

    Based on this discussion, I ordered an A275. Let's see how it does for me!

    I now have two devices. The A-275 metal cage and the A-257 Metal Holy Trainer V2 clone. I discovered that I prefer the Cage to the fully encompassed, very heavy HTv2 clone.

    Do you have any problems with skin folding between the bars during normal daily wear? Doesn't it chafe with underwear and trousers?
    I have a similar chinese A277 model. Cage diameter is a bit too small for me. I'm looking for something looser.

    The only skin folding issue I have base behind the balls if I wear the A-275 overnight. It's only an issue with nocturnal erections for me. I bought a bigger base ring just to help with this. It's worse with the A-257 HTv2 clone. If anything, the bars allow feeling, reduce weight and give the minor ability to adjust should I need to figure out how to get more shaft skin in the tube. I've never had any chaffing, but then again I only use mine for daytime wear, not full time 24/7 and I use cocoa butter when installing. I plan clothing for chastity use. I wear white cotton brief underwear, and cargo shorts when locked usually. They seem to hold the device close to my body which is nice while allowing extra space for the inescapable protrusion. I do wear my device with jeans from time to time if I have to mow, but I only notice it for a short while. Once your mind is off of your junk and focused on what you have to do it all disappears.

    I have one like this, slightly different cage but same base ring. It really surprised how incredibly comfortable it is. The width and extreme ergonomic curve of the base ring are more pronounced than any other device I’ve worn, and I found I can wear a smaller diameter base ring with this shape. Super cheap, super comfortable, and with the best type of lock, the integrated lock style. I’ve spent a lot of money on custom made devices, but this is at least as good, if not better than anything else I’ve had.

    Go to eBay and search a-277 chastity, a-275 chastity, a-257 chastity. Don't waste your money on any with urethral tubes. Mine was painful, made me bleed, and therefore not worth it. If you plan on using an a-257 HTv2 clone my best luck was with additional weight support through the use of a length of paracord used as a belt. Also expect that one to need a lot of cleaning when you get it. Mine had large chunks of concrete sand inside from the metal casting process.

    Just be careful with this model. There was a member on here who did not listen to advice given who had this model. I don't want to mention his name, because he had a way of making everyone talk about him and his issues... Drawing people into his stupidity... (@Lakeman I'm not talking about you... Ha) Anyway, he used this model with the open end and found the head of his penis through the bars while flaccid... then became erect and in a lot of pain... I would be willing to bet that he pulled himself through manually as part of an erotic event and got stuck... But it's just not worth the possibility of occurrence for me.

    I will only say that life is about choices. I choose the more confined and messy option gladly to that of potential accidental constriction in a manner most unacceptable.

    Good luck!
