Bought this to help my Mom when she is out and about. It really helps steady her as she goes down the sidewalk to the stores or visits friends. She is 89 and broke her hip this spring. She is moving from the walker to a cane and this makes for a great transition. I think she will always use this to help steady her movements. Easy to put on and tighten, and I don't see it falling off at anytime. She likes that the cane stands up too!!!
This is an excellent replacement cane tip with great stability, light weight, and stands by itself so is handy when needed.
Great product- works well.
This attaches easily to the cane you may already have. The quality is excellent; much better than the pod on the Hurry Cane. Another member of the household has one of those; the cane portion is thinner than my aluminum cane, and the quad bottom is much smaller than the Hugo QuadPod. Also, my cane is more stable than hers. I had almost decided to buy the Hurry Cane until I found this attachment; I think it is a much better buy. If you already have a cane, I would recommend buying this attachment.
Purchased this item for my Dad so he wouldn't have to lay his cane on the floor and have a difficult time picking it back up. Very sturdy feeling and free standing ( next to his chair, the counter at the Dr's office or anytime he needs both hands free). Fit his regular cane perfectly, and was received in 3 days.
The way it fits is a series of metal fingers move up into the cane and press against it holding it to the tip. It is tightened and held with a screw with an allen head. It may need to be tightened periodically because it doesn't lock. I wouldn't know yet because my borrowed cane has a solid rounded end and I'm not cutting it off to see if this Hugo tip works. I would not have purchased it if they would have advertised the tip requires a hollow ended cane.
If you have poor mobility the cane tip does not provide stability because the bottom has no suction on the ground when walking.
I was looking around at the prices on the Hurrycane and the Trustycane and found this little gadget. I put it together with the Carex cane from Walmart which was $11+ and it was still cheaper than either of the other two, and I didn't have to pay shipping charges because I used the Site to Store. I tried it with the feet facing forward, but changed it to the feet going from left to right because it stays standing up better. I would highly recommend this product.
saved my son from having to use a walker,think is a great helper to a walking stick
Fit my cane, folding cane which I also bought from wal-mart, perfectly. Keeps my cane standing when not in use and haven't had a problem while walking with it.
I am so happy with my new Hugo Quadpod. Now my cane doesn't fall on the floor, causing me to be flustered at the checkout counter. It also stabilizes me, so I no longer fear my cane slipping out from under me. I would tell anyone who uses a cane to go out and order/buy one now. You will not regret it.
Love it, It keeps the cane upright at all times. It feel like I have more support than using
just a plain cane tip.
No bending needed to pick up cane if it falls on the floor, just step on the corner of the pod and it pops up. Since it allows the cane to stand on it's own, you can use both hands to complete simple tasks.
Excellent for stability.
I just got it and I've been using it for two days and I do like it. But you have to tighten the screw very high use it T handle Allen wrench instead of the one they give you.
If you want it to stand itself back up after you knock it down, then No, it's not for you.
But if you are realistic in your expectations, it works great.
having used a cane for sometime, I have had times when a single tip would slip. I tried this and am very pleased with it's performance.
Walmart has a great price for the Hugo Quadpod Cane Tip. And this thing is wonderful. It has just enough flexibility for good balance while walking and allows the cane to stand on it's on when not in use. I highly recommend this tip!
Increase stability peace of mind priceless except at walmart then its under $10 buy for everyone you know with a cane they will love you forever
