I’m beginning to think that numbered, plastic seals are better than padlocks on a male chastity device. The padlocks promote the idea that the device is inescapable. Only someone with the key can free the penis inside. Of course that isn’t true. All practical male chastity devices can be escaped if the wearer is determined. So the lock isn’t really a way to insure the wearer can’t get out.
Almost every guy who is locked in a device has an emergency key or knows where his keyholder keeps the key. Some actually have the key and are expected not to use it unless instructed to do so. I don’t have a key and there is no emergency key for me to use. All the keys are in a secure safe I can’t open. If I figure out the combination, I could get the key, temporarily release her weenie, play with it, and lock up again. She would be none the wiser. For the record, I have no desire to do that.
If, however, Mrs. Lion uses the numbered seals we have, the only way I can conveniently escape is by cutting the seal. If replace it later, Mrs. Lion will know because the number on the seal won’t match her record of the one she put on me. In this case we are looking for tamper detection, not prevention. These seals are used to protect all sorts of valuable things, from truck cargo, to tool boxes. The idea isn’t to prevent access as much as detect it if it happens. That’s perfect for enforced male chastity.
I have one problem with using our plastic seals full time: They allow the Jail Bird to wobble too much when a seal replaces the security screw we have now. Our current seals look like little padlocks. Only one kind fits the small screw hole. I only have three of this type right now. I’ve ordered some new ones that may do the trick.
What is needed is a small zip tie with a numbered tag. The drum seal (left) looks like the answer. The problem is that the “cable” is too thick for the security screw hole. If I can find one with a smaller diameter, it can be tightened to securely hold the cage to the base ring. This particular seal is meant to “lock” steel drums.
It may be that if we want to go with pull-tight numbered seals on the Jail Bird we will have to get the base ring hole enlarged to accommodate the light duty seals. That’s a fairly radical move. If we do that, the security screw won’t work. Also, the seals most likely to fit are sold in cases of 1,000. That’s not a big issue, but I need a sample to assure the seal will work.
The plastic cage is stable with the padlock-type seals we have now (Top image, right). We have to continue testing to assure the plastic cage I have is going to be comfortable enough for full-time wear.
Most importantly, Mrs. Lion has to approve this change in locking. I also have to discover if the seal gives me any trouble in daily life. My guess is that I won’t even notice the change.
The big advantage of this locking method is the increased security and ease of removal. It makes the concept of an emergency key obsolete and provides me with an easy way out if needed. Most importantly, the device can’t be removed without revealing the act to my keyholder.
