On the Freedom Edition™, the button is found on the top section of the shaft. Ensure button snaps into place (sticks out and is not depressed) to secure the HurryCane®height.
How Do I Stand the HurryCane®?
Your HurryCane® acts like memory foam, remembering the last position it was in, so when you want to stand it next to you, simply 'reset the flex.' To do this, see the instructions that come with the HurryCane® and the "Stand Your HurryCane" video on the how it works page. If the HurryCane® fails to continue standing upright, it's usually an indication that you are on uneven terrain and you should walk with caution.
How Do I Fold the HurryCane® Freedom Edition™?
Pull apart each segment, starting with the button, in a reverse counter-folding motion (the sections will remain connected by the inner cable).
How Do I Keep the HurryCane® Freedom Edition™ Folded Up?
Once the cane is folded, slip the wrist strap's elastic band around the three segments of the cane (check out the "1 Strap, 2 Uses" video on the how it works page).
What Makes the HurryCane® Different From Traditional Canes?
The HurryCane® is the only cane with the SteadiGrip™ design and the proprietary pivoting base. These two amazing design technologies give you three points of contact for maximum stability on all terrains AND continuous balance and stability while at ANY angle. So unlike traditional canes that can slide out, under, or to the side of you, you'll always be connected and supported by the HurryCane®.
