Frequently asked questions

Offering the best authentic popular male chastity products

Why would a man wear a chastity device?

The average man would immediately reject the notion of wearing such a device, as it represents both a loss of something dearly important, as well as unnecessary and uncomfortable. But after the initial reaction, some men become curious. Men who think they may have a sexual-related problem and/or a submissive nature sometimes will look at these as something of a solution, or something exciting that could add to their relationship. Once a man realizes that wearing the device is totally voluntary, curiosity could lead to giving it a try.

Based on feedback from our customers, the reasons include:

  • Needed to help restore trust in a relationship with your wife or life partner after a loss of self-control.
  • Self-protection to resist undesired impulses for sexual encounters.
  • Control of compulsive masturbation problems.
  • To spice up your marriage by surrendering control of your orgasms to your partner.

The feelings and sensations that a man may derive from wearing such a device include:

  • Maintained focus  (fewer sexual distractions)
  • Self-confidence (no need to be concerned about resisting temptation)
  • A sense of constant, low-level arousal when you think about your wife or partner holding the key
  • Fewer arousing dreams during sleep (once you get used to it)
  • Loss or reduction of arrogance when you've given the key to someone you love
  • Greater self-discipline and temperament
  • Greater ability to trust yourself and others

The above is not an all-inclusive list, and certainly not every man will experience all of these feelings and sensations.

Why would a woman want her man to wear a chastity device?

Not all women take to the idea of having her man locked up in a chastity device, at least not initially. But based on feedback from our customers, the reasons include:

  • To help restore trust in a relationship when there is suspicion or evidence of extra-marital affairs.
  • Similarly, women who have been hurt by a former partner's infidelity may want her man to wear one for her own sense of security.
  • Some women find it very erotic to be able to control their man's orgasm.
  • A man will try harder to please his woman if there is a chance she will deny him access to the key; consequently he's more attentive and helpful around the home.
  • As long as he is wearing it, you will never again have to worry about him leaving the toilet seat up.

Generally, when the wife is holding the key and knows that he is locked, she will experience: 

  • a greater sense of security and trust with your man
  • a sense of control that some women find very erotic
  • more attention and affection, and fore-play during sex
  • some women find that they want to dress and behave more sexily to further stimulate their man (teasing and denial), which in-turn stimulates her own sex drive.

The above is not an all-inclusive list, and certainly not every woman will experience all of these feelings and sensations.

How do I know which model is best for me?

If you are considering a device for the first time, the choice that we recommend is the CB family of products. They are the easiest for most men to get on, and with the variety of rings and spacers included in a set, it is easiest to find the most comfortable fit.

If you prefer a silicon model as a first experience, Bon-4 may be worth considering because it does come with multiple rings. However, Birdlocked is the more popular model in this space, especially the Neo. Dick Cage has an advantage over Birdlocked in that if you get the ring size wrong, you can purchase a different sized ring.

Men who have a high ball sac may have difficulty with the silicon models. The width of the ring on a Birdlocked model is 30mm, and on a Dick Cage it is 35mm. If you don't have enough slack in your scrotum, it will be very difficult to get on, stay on, and wear discretely and comfortably. The width of the CB rings are only 12mm, and consequently are much easier to wear comfortably.

CB Models

The first consideration is the size of your flaccid penis. The CB-6000 will accommodate a 1 3/8" diameter and about five inches in length. CB-3000 is slightly shorter, but slightly wider than the CB6000. If either dimension are greater than that, the Curve may be the better choice. There is also the CB6000-S model, which is an inch shorter than the regular CB6000, and has been very popular since it's introduction.

Another consideration is appearance. While all models are pretty discrete under loose-fitting clothing, on most men the CB-3000 and CB-6000-S will be the one least likely to be detected. The CB-6000 is also quite discrete. The Curve does protrude out further than other models, but if you are large enough to wear this model, chances are that the bulge in your trousers has been noticed before. :-)

Comfort is another consideration, though they are all about the same once the right fit is found. Generally, people that have bought and used the CB-6000 have commented more about the comfort than the other models. Opinions vary though.

Silicon Models

Birdlocked models are all one piece, and have six models that come in a variety of colors and sizes. Since its introduction in 2010, the Neo model has been by far the most popular for two reasons primarily:

  • The ring design accommodates a range of 45mm to 52mm, somewhat self-adjusting.
  • It is designed to be more secure (i.e. more difficult to get out of) than earlier models.

Dick Cage was introduced in 2011, and does a very good job of trapping the penis to prevent escape (though none of the models are fool-proof). It is only available in clear, and is available with three choices for ring-sizes and two length of cage.

Bon-4 comes with multiple rings to help find a good fit. Like Dick Cage, it has a choice of short or long tubes. There is actually the "Plus" model which contains both tubes. The biggest criticism of the Bon-4 seems to be around the level of difficulty of getting the unit one, as the attachment of the ring and cage with the provided plastic strap can be very difficult to do without assistance.

See also the page on this site that discusses the differences in the models.

If you have any questions, please write to us at .

Are the devices visible under clothing?

Generally, the devices are very discrete. Loose-fiiting pants are recommended, and darker colored pants tend to be even better. Of all of the devices, the CB-6000-S and CB-3000 are the most discrete for most men. Silicon models such as Birdlocked and Dick Cage can be very discrete on men that have adequate slack in the scrotum, otherwise can be very conspicuous. However the soft and flexible material can be "compressed" with the use of tight-fitting underwear, which helps make it more discrete.

About being discovered: you will learn over time that you are far more conscious of the bulge that you can see than other people are. As long as your clothes are loose fitting, nobody will ever know. Swimming poses a different problem though, as wet trunks tend to cling to the lines of your body, therefore could be more noticeable. People that notice would likely dismiss it has having a large member. You could diminish that by wearing tight fitted underwear under your clothes to keep it closer to your body; spandex panties work well, if you're willing to wear them.

Is there a warranty on the products?

The CB-6000, CB-3000, CB-2000 and Curve products are warranted by A.L. Enterprises for one year from date of purchase, and they will replace any defective component. 

Birdlocked and Bon-4 devices are warranted for 90 days from purchase for manufacturing defects.

Security inserts will be replaced within 30 days of purchase in case of defect or dissatisfaction.

Our return policy is 50% refund for opened product within 30 days, exclusive of shipping. We also give a total of 75% purchase credit for exchange for another model.

LockedUpLove.Net work as your agent to ensure that your needs are addressed to promptly.

Who manufactures the products?

We are authorized distributors of A.L. Enterprises products, based in Las Vegas, NV. These products are of very high quality, and are protected by international patents. There are similar products on the market made in China that are inexpensive, cheaply made, and not covered by a manufacturer's warranty. These can be found frequently on eBay and similar sites at very low prices, though the eBay sellers of these products often get banned by the company's attorneys for patent infringement. It's definitely a "buyer beware" situation.

Note: since the company re-engineered the CB-3000 and Curve to use the same ring design, all current models are actually manufactured in Taiwan. The tag attached to the zipper will indicate such. Do not be alarmed, as the rigid quality standards of these products have been strictly enforced.

Birdlocked devices are manufactured in Switzerland by the Birdlocked company. We are authorized distributors of them as well.

Bon-4 is manufactured in Europe, but procured through an authorized re-seller in Los Angeles.

Security inserts and points are manufactured by a local supplier in Mesa, AZ.

Other products are procured from a variety of suppliers.

What is a counterfeit, and why should I avoid them?

Since the inception of the products, there have been cheaply made replicas of the A.L. Enterprises products, mostly (if not all) from China. Though we don't see many CB-2000 fakes these days, the CB-3000, Curve, and recently even the CB-6000 units have been shamelessly copied. Aside from the illegalities of these copies, primarily for patent infringement in the USA, there are two major problems: they break easily, and they come with no manufacturer warranty.

Authorized distributors of the A.L. Enterprises products are contractually bound to sell the devices at full retail price, unless they have announced the discontinuance of the item (such as the CB-2000 in December 2008, and recently the hinged ring models of the Curve and CB-3000). If you see one of the items for sale at less than our prices, it is very likely a counterfeit. Some other ways to tell:

  • The authentic products do not come in velvet bags (CB-2000 and CB-3000).
  • The authentic CB-3000 and Curve do not come in a hinged box that has form-fit spaces for all of the parts.
  • The "Cbelt-3000" is a counterfeit copy of a CB-3000.
  • The CB-4000 is a counterfeit copy of the Curve.
  • The current version of the CB-3000 is only available in clear. (Previous hinged-ring versions of the CB-3000 and Curve included black and neon red versions that was discontinued in the summer of 2007.) Any other color is a fake.
  • The Curve is only available in clear. Any other color is a fake.
  • There are known to be Chinese made replicas of the CB-6000 clear on the market. We would advise you to contact the seller to ask for the place of origin, especially if they are discounted.
  • Earlier versions of the CB-6000 fakes had round lock-pins, instead of the oval shaped pins currently used.

Not everyone that is selling these products knows about this problem, and when they are reported are mostly compliant with laws and stop the sale. But there are some unscrupulous dealers that continue to try to market the fakes, and some have ultimately been prosecuted for doing so.

Birdlocked devices have reportedly been copied, but we have not encountered a counterfeit model to date.

Buy with confidence! If you have any concerns about the authenticity of the products from us or any other dealer, please contact A.L. Enterprises at 1-800-331-8005 (within the USA), or 1-435-637-8331 from anywhere else in the world. Their office hours are 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, MST, Monday-Friday.

Why not buy direct from the manufacturer?

A.L. Enterprises does do direct retail business through their website, While they will be happy to take and fulfill your order, their business is primarily wholesaling, and marketing through their authorized resellers (such as us!). Other advantages that we offer versus buying direct from them include:

  • We offer free or discounted shipping, and will ship on Saturdays, to save you money and time.
  • We will accept returns (with some limitations).
  • We offer products from other manufacturers within the same package.
  • We offer much greater personal service, and can respond quickly to questions and concerns.
  • We can provide replacement parts at our cost beyond the one year warranty period.

What are "points of intrigue"?

The Points of Intrigue were an attachment available for the earlier version of the CB-2000, CB-3000 and Curve to help prevent escape and further inhibit arousal. They came as a set of three with different length points that will push into the skin causing irritation when arousal begins. To try to remove the penis while they are attached could cause piercing, scratching, or even cuts on the penis, but are not painful to wear under normal circumstances when the appropriate size is chosen.

The official "points of inrigue" for the current A.L. Enterprises products came to market in early 2013. Prior to that, we had several options of products that serve the same purpose, and continue to carry them:

  • Security points, which are functionally similar to the points of intrigue. They can be sanded to be shortened and/or blunted for comfort. They are compatible with all current models.
  • Security insert, which fits inside the cage. Short rubbery pins protrude from the insert to trap the penis, much like a chinese finger trap. This is suitable for men of lesser flaccid girth. They are designed to work with the CB-6000, CB-6000-S and CB-3000.
  • Flex points, introduced July 2011, which is something of a hybrid between the above two items. It replaces the front plate, as does the security points, but has rubber fingers that extend into the cage. They too can be shortened and/or blunted for comfort. It too works like a chinese finger trap in that they offer resistance to withdrawing the penis without sacrificing any of the tube diameter. They are compatible with all current models.

How does the CB-6000 compare to the other CB models?

The main difference between the CB-6000 and CB-3000 is that the CB-3000 is about 1/4" shorter in the cage, and that the weld seam is on the side. This would tend to make the CB-3000 less resistant to splitting as has been reported on a number of forums. It is also has a slightly greater diameter than the CB6000 models (1.45" and 1.38", respectively).

Early models of the CB-6000 had a relatively high incidence of the cage cracking or splitting, but has gotten much better as the product has matured. The manufacturer has replaced them without question whenever reported.

The Curve is wider and longer than both models, though can be less obvious under clothes than the other models.

How long does it take to get used to wearing one?

It will vary from man to man, of course. Initially it will feel awkward, but after a while once the right fit is found - typically a few hours to a few days - it will come to feel more natural, and you will become less and less aware of it as time goes on. You may even find it to be pleasant to wear most of the time, as it would be a constant reminder of your partner, or at least of your own sexuality.

Many men experience painful nocturnal erections during the early days of wear. This does tend to pass with time (1-2 weeks, typically) as the mind retrains itself to not have erections during sleep.

What should I do if I experience an erection in my sleep?

This is pretty common during the first few weeks of wear. Unconsciously it can be somewhat stimulating, which could provoke an erection that would be uncomfortable, even somewhat painful while locked up. If you wake up in that condition, it's best to remove the device for the reminder of the night, and try it again the next night. Eventually, your mind will be trained not to become aroused during sleep, and you will be able to sleep normally.

How long is it safe to wear a CB?

Some men can wear these devices for weeks, even months at a time! But always practice safety and err on the side of caution. If it becomes uncomfortable to wear, remove it for a day or two. If you plan to wear for longer than 10 days, you should consider some means to drain the prostate to keep it healthy. In lieu of ejaculation, there is a process called "milking" which involves massaging the prostate to allow the seminal fluids to drain through the penis - effectively pre-ejaculatory fluids - that if left alone too long could develop bacteria and cause health issues.

You may also have some hygiene issues, e.g. odor after a few days of wear. Cleanliness is essential, though can be difficult. Wash with soap and water, flush with a shower as best you can. It would be advisable to remove the device every few days for a thorough cleaning before reapplying.

How do I find the right fit?

Silicon Models

There isn't many adjustments that can be made to a silicon model once the item has been acquired (aside from the Bon-4 ring selection).

CB Models

Typically this is done by trial and error. You should first find the the smallest ring that you can fit into, then go up one size. If the ring is too small, the skin of the scrotum will become pinched and irritated usually within a few hours. If it is too loose, it will spin rather freely, which could result in some uncomfortable twisting, at least on some models. As for spacing, as little as 1/8" can make a huge difference. Make it tight initially, but watch your testicles closely for signs of discoloration or coldness. If found, take it off immediately and next try a slightly larger spacer. You must be careful not to use too large of a spacer, otherwise the testicles may pull themselves through, which is about as painful as a groin kick! Ultimately, you will find the right combination of rings and spacers that will allow you to wear the device comfortably for several days at a time, or longer.

If you get a hot pinching or burning sensation under your balls, it is typically caused by the skin folding, and can be relived by stretching the skin out to eliminate the fold, using both hands. This might mean that the ring is too small, but not necessarily.

Some men have a high/tight ball sac. If this is the case it may take a little longer to get a comfortable exact fit. For the best results the ball sac should hang slightly below the ring and the cage portion. You may find it necessary to wear a 1” leather strap with snaps at the top of the ball sac off and on for a while until it stretches slightly. Most adult stores carry this product. Another option is an item called "the parachute", which could accelereate the stretching to get you to that comfortable fit sooner. You can find the parachute on the "Related Products" tab on this site.

Can I stand up to urinate while the device is attached?

Technically it is possible, though not advisable. You must have your urator slot lines up EXACTLY right, and your penis must fill the tube to the end. If not, you are likely to spray all over the place. It's best to sit while peeing, for all concerned. Your wife (if you are married) will love you even more for doing so. :-)

How best to be a KeyHolder?

It's not an easy question to answer, as there are many approaches to this, depending on the nature of the relationship. However, a good starter reference for this is "Male Chastity - a guide for keyholders" by Lucy Fairbourne, a book available through this website and other outlets.

What are the plastic locks for?

The plastic locks can be used in place of the normal metal lock if the wearer will ever have to pass through a metal detector. They are individually serialize to keep the wearer from replacing the lock with another one; the keyholder would know that the plastic lock had been replaced. These can also be used for relatively easy removal if the wearer had to remove the device, for example if wearing it had become painful. Once removed, they cannot be reused.

We also offer a reusable plastic lock, which will not set off metal detectors, and also does not make clicking or knocking sounds when the lock moves while walking.

Is it posible to get a spare key when ordering a CB?

All models come with two keys, except for the designer models of the CB-6000 (which come with only one). If desired, comparable locks can be obtained from Walmart or local hardware stores with multiple keys for only a few dollars.

How is the product shipped? Are there any external markings?

Your order will be shipped via USPS in a plain brown box. The return address will normally be our PO Box in Scottsdale, AZ, but occasionally we will drop-ship directly from the supplier. There will be no external indication of the contents of the package. Your discretion is assured!

Our current shipping costs and methods are posted on the "About Us" page.

We can ship via UPS or Fedex, but will be quoted separately based on need dates. We are not liable for brokerage, customs, nor any other fees assessed my local non-US carriers. For customs purposes, we always list the full price of the item(s) as to their value. The potential of steep fines for consciously under-valuing products in international shipments is  a risk that LockedUpLove is not willing to take.

Please contact us at for further information.

Can you ship to APO addresses?

Yes, though there may be restrictions. We've not yet been unable to ship to any address, include APO/FPO.  Questions about Free or Discounted shipping, shipping rates, etc? email your question to Your questions will be answered promptly!

What happens if you get an erection?

Technically, you can't get an erection, though your body may try to produce one. As it becomes harder, it will cause increasing pressure within the device, which will discourage the erection. When you are conscious, you will only be able to get aroused, but not fully hard. Night time erections are a little different, as you may get harder than you might while awake, and it could be painful until the erection subsides or until the device is removed.

The normal swelling that comes with arousal could put pressure on the device, and in some cases could cause the tube to crack. If that happens, CAREFULLY remove the device immediately and contact us for replacement. Then pat yourself on the back - not every man can exert such pressure!

Are the devices compatible with piercings?

The PA-5000 is designed specifically to accommodate the Prince Albert piercing. Birdlocked also has a PA model that we stock, but in the clear models only. They are available in colors as a special order, and normally can be shipped in 7-10 days. 

How should I cut it off in an emergency?

If you have the luxury of time and the proper tools, the best way to cut the device off is to cut the lock pin just above the hole where the lock is placed. Ideally you would hold the lock with pliers to keep the target area exposed, and then use a keyhole saw to cut through the lock pin to remove the lock. It is much more economical to replace the lock pin than the whole device.

This is somewhat more difficult with the current ring design, as there is very little of the lock pins actually exposed.

How do I keep my chastity device clean?

Keeping clean, healthy while in enforced male chastity One of the biggest challenges of living the enforced male chastity lifestyle it keeping your  chastity device and your penis clean, odor free and prevent both bacterial and fungal infections. 

Remember that being locked in a male chastity device is a lot like wearing  a tight rubber glove for a prolonged period of time.  The inside of that glove can get an odor, a nasty sticky build-up caused by body oils and normal perspiration. This is an unhealthy condition. To prevent any problems it is necessary to keep yourself clean.    Part of keeping yourself healthy is to keep your penis and balls as dry as possible warmth and moisture are potential breeding grounds for bacterial and fungal infections.

To this end, cotton swabs or “Q” tips with a large soft tip can be used to dry out the inside of the tube after hot sweaty work, swimming, showers. Over the years I have developed some “tricks” that can help all men who are locked up for love.

First:  Every time you urinate: Use a small plastic “flip spout” bottle to rinse the inside of the tube with a mixture of 20 % mouthwash and water. Use the less expensive mouthwash that contains a mint scent and alcohol.  After the wash, clean any remaining drops with a small piece of toilet tissue or a large soft tipped cotton swab. 

Second: Daily/morning shower:     
Step One: Use a foam tipped cleaner to apply Johnson’s baby head to toe baby wash to a foam tipped cleaner and work it up along the insides.of the tube.           
Step Two: use a directional shower head set on tight, pulsating stream to blast water up  into the tube.   
Step Three: wash externally all around with the genital area with the Baby wash.
Step Four: Dry everything that you can with a towel; then use a hair dryer set on very  low heat or no heat to dry inside of the tube.   
Step Five: using gel type baby oil on a foam tipped applicator lightly coat the tip of the penis and up inside the tube. 
Step Six : apply a lotion to the balls and around the trap or testie ring.

Weekly: We recommend that all enforced chastity devices be removed and the penis be thoroughly cleaned at least once weekly. 

What is a Cock Ring?

Cockrings are one of the oldest sex devices known to man. They’ve been used for millennia to help keep a penis hard, but even men who don’t have erectile dysfunction are re-discovering that a cockring can enhance their sexual pleasure and that of their partners, too. In centuries past, cockrings were made of precious materials like jade and silver as well as leather. Today, cockrings are made of new synthetics as well as the old stand-bys like metal and wood.
It’s fun to explore the many different kinds of cockrings available. Some are intricate series of rubber or leather straps which fit around the penis and ball sac, with another strap to separate the testicles, and yet another to encircle the base of the shaft. Others are simple as a kind of rubber, just a stretchy ring of material which fits snugly around the balls and base of the shaft. Still others are
hard metal “doughnuts” — some weighing up to a pound — that fit the same way. A lot of women are finding they like their men to wear a little “adornment’ to spice up the view.
Not all cockring are designed just to keep an erection or to look sexy, however. There are varieties with special nubs or projections, designed to enhance a woman’s pleasure during intercourse by rubbing against her labia and clitoris. So don’t be surprised if your lover suggests you try or wear one for her pleasure, too. In fact,
Screaming O recently introduced a “use it and lose it” disposable cockring that comes with a built-in bullet vibrator for you and for her.
If you’re new to them, putting on a cockring can seem a little daunting, but they are quite simple really. Any do-it-yourselfer can accomplish it with ease. The penis should be flaccid and — in the case of the rigid metal kind — is drawn through the opening, then first one ball, then the other is gently pulled through until the cockring rests solidly against your crotch. The stretch kind of cockring is obviously even easier to put on. You just pull it open, slide it down over your shaft and around your ball sac, and you‘re good to go.
Leather cockrings are extremely popular, both for their aesthetic look and because most come with adjustable snap closures for easy fit and removal. And speaking of removal, don’t forget about safety. . .
Yes, there are safety considerations with cockring use. Many experts suggest that you do not wear one for longer than twenty or thirty minutes, although there are cases where men have been known to wear them for much longer without apparent damage. The damage can happen because the cockring restricts the outflow of blood from the penis which is what makes it flaccid again. Like any sex toy, you should use a cockring wisely, as an enhancer, not an all the time thing. Otherwise, enjoy them, wear them as “special jewelry” to adorn your genitals, and to increase your and your lover’s pleasure.
