Ambutech 5-Section Fiberglass Folding Cane with 8-mm Metal Glide Tip (FG4070R585)

The Ambutech 5-Section Fiberglass Folding Cane has several interesting features. Its metal glide tip is especially useful, as it offers better sensitivity than the nylon tips that are usually found in similar canes. The tip will also last for a long time before it shows any wear and tear, but when it needs to be replaced, it is easy to screw on/off. The cane’s metal glide tip has an 8 mm (0.31 inch) thread, which is the same as many other Ambutech cane tips. It can therefore be interchanged quite easily.

Another convenient feature is its unique build. It folds into five sections that are held together by an elastic cord protected by fingerguards and aluminum ferrules. The parts join well and tightly together. Further strength is added to the cane by its double elastic cord assembly.

This Ambutech cane meets the standards of usual North American canes, with six inches (15.24 cm) of red stripe at the bottom, and the rest in white reflective tape.

The cane has a straight handle with a good grip, and is 58 inches (1.47 m) long.

Features:

  • Built to last from fiberglass and with extra protection for the elastic cord
  • It folds easily into five sections
  • It is further strengthened by double elastic cord assembly
  • Made according to normal North American standards with a red tip at the bottom and the upper part in white reflective tape
  • Comfortable, straight handle with a good grip
  • Special metal glide tip for extra sensitivity that can be interchanged with other Ambutech canes
