What a waste of money. It does Not stand alone ever regardless of what type of flooring you're on.
I was very, very disappointed. Quite honestly I feel it's too heavy also. I've got a friend who was suckered in as well and she was equally disgusted. Her husband was able to remove the so called "stand alone foot" and replace it with a standard foot pad.
Save your money!
It truly is not worth the cost!
Now I see there is yet another type of cane advertised! Is this new type being sold by the same company?
