Folding canes are a perfect accessory, which can be unfolded in no time and stored away using a folding bag and clip when not in use.

Steps to Unfold the Folding Walking Stick

If this is your first time getting your hands on the folding cane, then the following set of instructions will be of use. 

Step 1: Remove Plastic Cover & Tags

The walking cane comes in a plastic cover with all the tags intact. Before discarding each tag, make sure to check the condition of the cane and then get rid of the labels and tags.

Step 2: Mastering the Unfolding Technique

Simply, hold the handle of the folding cane and dangle the stick on the floor. You will notice all the sections of the stick falling into place one after the other. In case, the different sections do not fall into place, use your hands to organize them.

 Step 3: Walk in Style

After you see all the sections aligned properly, tap the ferrule end on the floor, and you are good to go.

Step 2: Safe Storage

Now, put the walking cane into a cover or bag to store it away.

That’s all you need to know to fold and unfold the folding cane effortlessly.
