hello, ive been trying to set my trailing stop loss but it never worked the way i wished. so i would like to ask how to make it work, if it is possible

my desire is the following.

lets say i put the basic stop loss 10 tics and i want it to train to break even (+1) when i am in the open profit 15 ticks (NOT EARLIER!!!). the point is, and the problem i was facing, that the trailig stop starts to trail immediatelly as soon as im in any profit, 1, 2, 3 tics... and it trails for 1, 2 3, tics WHICH I DONT WANT. i want it to move to BE +1 AFTER i am in the open profit lets say 15! NOT EARLIER. is it possible to make it that way please? if so, how?

i tried all the possibilities but never figured out the way.
