|Adjusting Crutch Height|
All Walk Easy forearm crutches (and many of our canes) use a Clip system for height adjustment. The pictorial below shows how to adjust crutch height using this mechanism.
|Hold the crutch or cane tube in the palm of your hand with the pin of the Clip facing you.|
|Using your thumbs, push downward on the edges of the Clip. The pin will disappear through the hole in the tube.|
|Remove the Clip. Adjust the tube to desired length, making sure the holes line up (inner and outer tubes).|
NOTE: on all children forearm crutch models, the adjustment holes are on the inner tube!
|Hold the Clip between your thumb and forefinger and guide the pin into the hole.|
|Use your thumb to snap the Clip into place.|
|Check to make sure the Clip is installed properly and that the pin protrudes on the opposite side of the tube.|
|Adjusting Cuff Height|
Some Walk Easy forearm crutches use a double push-button for cuff height adjustment. Use the pictorial below to guide you in adjusting cuff-to-grip height.
|Hold the cuff with one hand and the crutch tube at grip height with the other. It is easiest if you rest the grip on your knee or other surface.|
|Using your thumb and index finger, squeeze the push-buttons together.|
|Push down on the cuff to maintain the push-buttons depressed.|
|Rotate the cuff slightly. You can now move the cuff up and down without the push-buttons releasing.|
|Adjust the cuff to its correct height...|
|...and rotate it until the push-buttons snap in place!|
NOTE: the cuff is correctly adjusted once the push-buttons protrude from either side of the tube.
