The X-Tip provides self-standing functionality on flat surfaces (while the Slim Tip provides an ultra slim profile) so match your cane tip to your activity for the day. Michael Graves Design canes are designed so the tips are easily removed, replaced, and re-attached…all tool free. That’s almost unheard of in the cane world. Remember, all cane tips wear out with use, which is why we offer replacement tips. Also, express yourself by mixing and matching colors. Here’s a helpful “tip” – to remove, grasp the tip with your hand, or between your feet, and pull firmly and carefully. Voila. To attach a new tip, align the tip to the cane’s bottom post so the grooves in the post line up with the internal ridges inside the tip. Press the tip on until it is fully covering the bottom post. Tada. The X-Tip fits the Michael Graves Design Quick Fold Cane and the Michael Graves Design C-Grip Cane. It does not fit on any other canes.
