Directions for theCompact White Cane From Future Aids, The Braille Superstore.

To change the tip on your Compact White Cane, please follow the below directions carefully.

1. Unfold your cane so that it is fully extended.
2. To remove the tip, Grasp the final section of cane in your left hand, and take hold of the tip with the other. Gently pull the tip away from the cane, rotating slightly to ease the neck of the tip out of the bottom of the shaft. After lots of use, the tip is usually quite stiff, so you may need to pull quite hard to dislodge the tip from the cane.
Once the tip comes off, it will pull some of the elastic out of the cane with it. It is this elastic from which you can detach the old tip and to which you attach the new one.
3. DO NOT let go of the elastic at any time while changing the cane tip. (You may need to enlist the services of someone else to hold the elastic for you during this process.)
4. Untie the cane tip that is currently on the cane and set it aside.
5. Now securely tie the new cane tip onto your cane.
6. Let the elastic gently slide back into the cane, and use your cane as usual with your new tip attached.
