Adjustable National Gallery Folding Cane
Adjustable Folding Cane featuring a National Gallery art print. Lightweight and easy to use stick. The pattern features an iconic Bosschaert still-life floral print beautifully presented as an all-over design on this folding stick.

The sections meet with an end-to-end 'easy-joint', which is easily managed by those without much strength in their wrists.

- #Measuring & Shortening#
To measure someone for a walking stick, ask them to stand with their weight evenly on both feet, looking straight ahead and with their arms relaxed by their sides. You then need to measure from the floor to the prominent bone of the wrist. This is the length of walking stick required. Please note this is just a rule of thumb. If the person has special needs, they may need to be measured by a medical professional. Alternatively they may have personal preferences for a longer or shorter walking stick.
To adjust the folding stick loosen off the tightening nut at the bottom of the top section. Push the button in and slide it up or down into one of the other positioning holes. Once you have found the position that suits best tighten up the nut to lock it, which will also reduce the clicking noise. Please note: economy sticks do not have a tightening nut.
