How to use
To make sure the stick is at the correct height and is a comfortable fit, ensure your shoe height is the same as the shoe style worn most frequently when using the stick.
1. Stand upright as possible on a firm, flat surface and let your arm hang down naturally by your side.
2. Adjust the stick so the top portion of handle touches the inside of your wrist where it meets the palm. See diagram on pack.
3. To adjust the height, loosen the locking mechanism by turning the nut anti-clockwise. Press the button and turn the adjusting holes slightly off-center. Locate the button to its new position and ensure it is completely protruding through the adjusting hole. Tighten the locking mechanism by turning the nut clockwise.
How to fold the stick
The Boots Pharmaceuticals folding walking stick is hollow inside with a tension-sprung bungee cord inside the tubes that connects all of the sticks pieces together.
1. To fold it up, just pull each piece apart and fold it accordingly.
2. Position the secure storage band over the 4 pieces to hold it in place.
