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.
