Easy to attach, easy to use
on January 7, 2014
I walk on snow and ice quite a bit in western Wisconsin. This gives my cane more grip and stability, making me less fearful of falling and more willing to venture out.
I couldn't quite see how it worked from the photo, but I trusted that it would swing out of the way when not needed. It does, easily.
Install it by unscrewing the curved plate and removing it from the claw foot. Perch the claw foot on the tip of your cane. I rotated it so that it would be on the outside when flipped up and not bang against my leg. Align the curved plate with the top of the claw foot and insert and tighten the screws. Simple. To raise or lower the claw, just squeeze in on the plastic knobs and swing the tip to the position you want.
You might think all this is obvious. There are, however, no directions on the package and, if you are a bit unmechanical like me, it takes a bit to figure out what to do with this thing when it arrives. The lack of directions is the only reason I took a star off.
