Turn your cane over and place the handle on the floor. Stand straight with your arms relaxed by your side and measure from the floor next to the outside center of your shoe up to the indentation of your wrist joint. This measurement is the typical total length of the cane that will fit your height, however we recommend adding one-half inch to this measurement for the proper arm bend when using your cane. If your cane is still too long after the first cut, simply make another cut to lower it until it is comfortable for you. Just a slight arm bend is desirable. Too much arm bend is ineffective as well as too little arm bend.
We Do Not Cut Canes To Length. The aluminum cane can be cut to your preferred length. The aluminum cane is relatively easy to cut with a metal cutting saw. Make sure your cut is square so the end fits flush into the rubber tip. Only cut the tip end and not the handle end. The titanium cane should be cut with a high quality, high speed professional saw, not with a hand held hack saw.
Do not use any type of high speed polishing tool such as a Dremmel Tool with abrasive compounds on your cane. The aluminum canes have a high quality, clear, hard coat anodized finish applied. The titanium canes are hand polished five times to a mirror finish. Applying pressure with a high speed polishing tool can remove the anodized finish or distort the mirror finish. Use only a good quality polish like Mothers brand and hand polish your cane with a soft cloth.
