CB-X has reported that it has seen a recent increase in counterfeit products and it is addressing the issue by purchasing and conducting quality control tests on the items in question.
The company is best known for its CB-X Male Chastity device [pictured] and corporate director Nikki Yates commented on the rise of bootlegs: “It’s become a real problem, and we have our legal team now getting involved. Once we discovered the difference in quality between an authentic CB-X Male Chastity device and a counterfeit, we felt the safety of our customers should be addressed.”
During tests, CB-X says it compared the counterfeit products to its own units and the working pressure was kept to 150 PSI, which represents the typical pressure developed by the penis of a latched man during an attempted erection. During the testing, CB-X said that many of the counterfeit devices split apart – trapping and damaging the rubber test tube that was used inside the cage.
“Had a man been wearing one of these counterfeit devices he could have received potentially severe injury to his penis caused by the sharp edges of the failed device,” Yates said. “We’re proud to say that even with further testing, 100% of our authentically manufactured devices not only survived quality control, they didn’t exhibit any abnormal signs of stress.”
The manufacturer has produced a brief video on its YouTube page, to help both distributors and customers tell the difference between an authentic CB-X Male Chastity Device and a counterfeit product. Customers are encouraged to review the video before making an online purchase as well as to buy only from authorised CB-X distributors such as Mister B, S&T Rubber and Dusedo.
