The first step is to remove the rubber cane tip, using a turning motion to twist and loosen.

If you’re having trouble removing the tip, we recommend using a hair dryer to heat the rubber material and make it softer, or use a heavy duty paper clip to break the suction between the tip and cane shaft, while being mindful not to scratch the shaft.

Try placing the cane on the floor and using your feet to anchor the tip in place while you twist the cane back and forth and then pulling up will usually do the trick

After removing the rubber tip, the next step is to print the Cane Tip Sizing Sheet.

Place the tip of your cane on the dotted circles, and make sure the dotted lines touch exactly to the sides of the cane.

Be sure to measure the cane shaft, with the rubber tip removed.
