I seen a man at walmart a few months ago and his cane tip had 4 sides. NOT the normal quad type canes. Those are so heavy! No this was all rubber and seemed very light looking. I stopped him & asked where he got it. He was looking for his wife so she could tell me but we never did find her lol
Any ways I looked around my town at several stores & came up empty handed, so I turned to my go to store ebay! I got mine there for aprox 17.00 - free shipping.
3 days before it arrived I did find one at the drug store Rite-Aid for 13.00 but it did seems more "chunky" then the one I had coming.
Mine came and I LOVED it immediately !
I can let go of my cane now & it does not fall over. A HUGE issue for me with my back injury! I feel much more steady on my feet now too!!! I am going to post a link to a picture of one so you can see what I am talking about.
I was able to find a lot of 3 sided cane tips, but I really wanted the 4 sided one.
I also was able to find one at Amazon but it was like 34.00 plus shipping.
Go to this link & scroll down a bit & there is a picture of it off to your left. If you scroll past it down a bit more you can also see the 3 sided one. I know NOTHING about the website the picture is on, I am just using their link to show you the type I got.
Hope someone else finds this info helpful. I know that this winter I am going to feel much better with 4 tips down instead of just one ;) www.chasing-normal.com/cane-tip/
