Walking Stick Accessories


Tripod stick tip – £4.50 ex.VAT

The tripod stick tip is always highly recommended by us as it provides more stability than the conventional ferrule. It is particularly good for users who tend to put their walking stick at an angle, wearing down just one side down of their ferrule.

The tripod may also keep your stick standing upright when on a flat surface.

It is 19mm so fits our standard walking sticks.

Cane clip – £2.70 inc.VAT (not vat exempt)

The cane clip is a great solution to the problem of where to put your walking stick when sitting down, for example at a restaurant The clip-on holder balances the cane and a rubber pad helps keep the holder from sliding off the table. The Cane/Crutch Holder securely grips a cane or crutch with a 16 to 25mm diameter.


Flexyfoot – £10.70 ex.VAT

The flexyfoot is a fantastic invention to help absorb shock, which can relieve pain and discomfort in the upper body. Our users find it particularly useful for crutches.
