Some sex dolls on the market have an ankle with so-called metal flexible tubes, which give the foot flexibility and dexterity. Sometimes these tubes are damaged just like fingers and we have to repair them. How to do it?

Only some sex dolls have a flexible ankle

There are many sex dolls on the market. They are made of different materials, colors, sizes and shapes. Last but not least, their construction is also different.

If we talk specifically about the feet, some sex dolls have a metal bone with a steel joint in the area of the ankle, while others have flexible wire tubes that can be damaged, cracked and the foot will lose its flexibility. It is these sex doll’s with wire tubes that we will talk about today and explain how to repair the ankle.

Damage to the sex doll’s ankle

Again, as with finger repairs, we recommend that you entrust your doll to specialists. Home repair can result in even more damage. However, if you follow our strict procedure, no damage should occur. Alternatively, we recommend that you try the repair on extra TPE material first. So what will we need for the repair?

Tools needed:

  • Pliers.
  • Scissors.
  • Operating knife.
  • Pliers.
  • Wire tube (gooseneck).
  • Glue or TPE solvent.
  • Drill.
  • Resin glue.
  • Vacuum cleaner.

Silicone sex doll ankle repair procedure

Removal of a broken wire tube

First of all, we feel around for the wire tube case. It should be located in the ankle area. Once we know where the case is, we then create access to it with the help of an operating knife. Using a surgical knife, cut a layer of silicone / TPE, which can be widened as needed using scissors.

Once the access is made, we pull the sheath where the ends of the wire tubes are, out of the foot. (a large part of the wire tube is in the foot itself). It is best to fasten the extended case with pliers to ensure its stabilization and to remove silicone / TPE, which would interfere with us in the following operations. We need to see the case clearly and have room to operate on it.

Since the ends of the wire tubes in the case are glued together with resin, we must separate them from each other using a drill. In most cases, there will still be various remnants of silicone which must be removed before drilling. As soon as we can clearly see the resin-glued wire tubes in the case, we can start drilling. ATTENTION! We only drill resin that glues the ends of the wire tubes together and up to a depth of 60 mm. We must be careful not to drill the case itself or the silicone / TPE material!

After drilling and separating, pull the ends of the wire tubes out of the case.

If there are residues of glued resin in the case, we drill them and thoroughly vacuum the whole case with a vacuum cleaner. At this stage, the housing should be completely empty without any resin residue. After vacuuming, we have to pull the rest of the wire tube out of the foot. This is a very demanding operation that requires precision and dexterity. The rest of the tube is filled with silicone, which prevents it from being pulled out. That’s why first we widen our access to the foot.

Then we will try to push the silicone / TPE around the wires so that the wires are exposed for a good grip. Once we have done so, we pull the wires out of the foot slowly and carefully with the help of a hand or pliers. Much of the silicone / TPE here will keep the wire in the foot, but don’t panic and lose your head. Simply cut the material carefully with a surgical knife to free the wire. After completing this operation, the entire foot and case should be completely empty and ready for the installation of a new wire tube.

Installation of a new wire tube (gooseneck)

The new wire tube should reflect the shape of the foot, similar to the one we just pulled out. Simply put the wire ends of the tube(the part of the wire that is not covered by the wire tube) can be twisted / winded together. We will make such a wire noose, which we will then bend into an L-like shape, this will create the metal foundation of the foot. When done, we can insert a new wire tube into the leg.

First, we insert the unbound part of the newly created wire tube insert into the leg. We be careful not to try to insert the rest of the tied ends of the metal insert into the leg. We just attach them to the leg and find out if they fit into the metal case. If not, we will cut them to the required size. Through this process, we will find out whether the insole fits into the leg and, if necessary, adjust it.

After adjustment, we remove the insole from the foot and finally install it correctly in the foot. This is achieved by first inserting the tied ends of the wire tube into a metal case and then inserting the rest of the insert into the space inside the silicone.

Once we have the new wire tube in the foot, apply resin glue to the area of ​​the case where the wire ends are located and leave for as long as the specific glue requires to harden. This stabilizes the new wire tube in the case and completes its entire installation. ATTENTION! We must be careful not to accidentally apply silicone / TPE adhesive to the area of the hole or anywhere else. Subsequent gluing of the skin to the hole would create a problem or damage the material.

If the new wire tube is fully installed, we still need to clean the material in the wound area and then glue the wound together with TPE glue, solvent or solder. If you don’t know exactly how to do this, we recommend you read our article on skin repairs.

What to watch out for !?

For any rushed, complacent work. Everything requires patience and time, especially your sex doll which you want to last. Pay attention to the fact that the TPE adhesive corrodes the material, so apply it only using the minimum required amount.

In any case, from our own experience, we can recommend buying sex dolls that use a solid metal bone with a joint instead of wire tubes in the feet. We use these sex dolls ourselves and have never had any damage in the ankle area. However, breaking and frequent repairs are commonplace with wire tubes (goosenecks).
