Discussion Summary

Explorer Anniescott gives the group a user report on her cane. She found that the battery compartment door is a weak spot, and that the first time the cane dropped to the street, the latch broke exposing the battery and disabling the lights and alarm functions. The group offers advice and discusses options.

Although most people who see it are raving about it, it remains to be seen if others have had a bad experience. Explorer Shirley follows up with comments about canes with 'feet' which are stable, and do not tend to fall over.
