No matter how superior the walking stick is, it also has possibility of detachment, which will lead to an accident. 2, Some people tend to hold the climbing walking stick and let its tip upward rather than touching the ground when they are tired and slow down their pace. However, we should drag the pole tip on the ground when holding them in hand. The tip of the pole is very sharp. Once people walking behind is falling down forward, he is very likely to be poked by the stick and get hurt. Therefore, the tip of the stick can only be downwards to the ground. 3, Screwed expansion structure is applied for almost all inside locking walking stick. And when this screwed expansion parts are used for a long time, they will always be loosen more or less, especially the ones used by left hand.
