A Huge Nut For Your Nuts

We own several cock-rings made from stainless steel and it's the Grinder that is the clear winner. It's heft, brushed finish, and industrial look make it very manly and I like to think of it as hardware for the hardware. Take time to measure correctly and you'll love the way this makes your cock look and stay harder longer.
Masculine look, heavy feel. Smooth, sleek finish, choice of sizes available. Easy to clean.
Rigid unyielding design may be uncomfortable to beginners.

extremely useful review


The grinder is a wonderfully masculine-looking stainless steel ring designed for the purpose of keeping your man's equipment rock hard for your pleasure. It's also great for keeping his balls front and center during the action and making the partner in his life drool with desire at the sexy look when this ring is worn.

Material / Texture

The stainless steel construction of the Grinder gives it a very heavy industrial feel and the hard image is exactly what I'm looking for in an item that is meant to keep my man hard. Luxuriously smooth on the inside, it is comfortable on your man's cock and the edges are rounded and polished smooth to prevent any undesirable scraping on sensitive body parts. The outside of the ring resembles a nut (as in nuts and bolts) but even those edges are rounded nicely to avoid any nasty chaffing.
Because this cock ring is metal there is absolutely zero odour and it has a delightful heavy feel with the cold steel unyielding on the flesh.

    • No odor
    • Porous
    • Rigid

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

Coming in a total of four different sizes, the Grinder we chose was the 2" model which is the second largest diameter offered. Before even thinking about ordering a rigid ring I insist on performing the correct measuring because steel rings have zero stretch to them and no one wants an unusable toy.
To measure yourself for a cock-ring, take a string and slip it behind your balls and tug it up around the top of your penis (where it meets your body). Mark the string on both sides where it comes together at a snugness that's comfortable for you. Remove the string and measure between the marks. This measurement will give you your circumference, now take your circumference measurement and divide by pi (3.14). This measurement will give you your diameter or ring size.
Our 2" diameter Grinder fits perfectly with just enough snugness to keep my partner hard but still remain comfortable and reasonably easy to get on and off. To put on a fixed cock ring, start with a flaccid penis. Hold the ring under your testicles and slip them through one at a time. Now, push your penis through the remaining space in the ring. A little lube can ease this process considerably. Keep in mind - the only way a fixed cock ring will come off is if you lose your erection.
I personally love the rugged-look and masculine feel of this ring and it's hefty 0.75 pound weight just oozes manliness. The 1/2 inch width of the band brings the testicles nicely away from the body and presents them for me to play with!

    • Can fit over both shaft and testicles
    • Fitted - must measure before purchase
    • May be too tight for some

Functions / Performance / Controls

As far as controls or functions go they are non-existent on this cock-ring. Performance-wise the Grinder works wonderfully if you measured correctly and ordered in the correct size. My husband hasn't experienced difficulty putting on the ring or taking it off unless I try to help and he starts to get hard during the donning process. It's just snug enough to restrict the blood flow from leaving his penis and he is just so incredibly hard when he has this encasing his package. I love how his balls stay out from his body and it makes them so much fun to tease and play with. The longest he has worn it is 30 minutes and I wouldn't recommend any longer because a ring too tight can result in loss of blood flow and damage to the genitals. I won't go into more details but read up on cock-rings before buying one, especially a rigid model. There is information beyond what I've written here that is useful that you should know.
Also remember to use lube when putting on the ring and don't get frustrated the first time you try it. There is a bit of a learning curve to wearing rigid, behind the balls rings and it might not come naturally to novices.
    • Comfortable during use
    • Very stimulating

Care and Maintenance

All that is required to care for this toy is a simple washing after use with soap and water and a towel drying. There are no seams or ridges for lubricant to get trapped in and all lubes are compatible with the stainless steel material. We store the ring in it's included pouch to prevent any damage to the brushed finish but it would be hard to even scratch it. The biggest precaution is to keep this cock ring from dropping on floor tiles. Because of it's 3/4 pound weight it will break/crack tiling. Look out if your fingers are slippery!
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


Anyone environmentally conscious will be pleased to know that Gear Essentials chose only a small black velvet pouch with a drawstring to encase the Grinder. No bulky plastic or cardboard boxes! No tacky smiling porn-stars! Included instructions would have been nice but are non-existent so, as I mentioned earlier, do some reading online through the ton of information available about the wearing of cock-rings before you buy.
