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

To change the tip on your Folding 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. Your Folding White Cane has double elastic. Insert an object such as a spoon into the loop to hold the elastic in place while you change the cane tip.
DO NOT let go of the elastic at any time during this process.
4. Unclip the cane tip that is currently on the cane and set it aside.
5. Now clip the new cane tip onto your cane.
6. Hold the elastic in one hand while you remove the spoon that was holding it in place with the other. Then let the elastic gently slide back into the cane, and use your cane as usual with your new tip attached.
