The adaptor converts your existing hook tip cane to fit 8mm thread-on tips. Attach this tip adaptor to the elastic cord in your Aluminum, Graphite, or Fiberglass cane, as you normally would a regular hook tip. You can then thread-on any thread-on tip from Ambutech's full range of 8mm tips. This may be desired if the elastic cord is difficult to pull out from the cane; thread-on tips are often considered easier to attach.
Please note: Your cane will be about 1” longer than before but will now accept any Ambutech 8mm thread-on tip. All Ambutech threaded tips offered by RNIB are 8mm and are therefore compatible with the tip adaptor. The Ambutech hook-style canes, inclding children's canes, offered by RNIB are also compatible.

Most of our products and some publications in large print (16 point and above) can be sent by freepost under the 'Articles for the Blind' scheme.
However, the Articles for the Blind scheme offers no guarantees of delivery or insurance for valuable items. We do, therefore, have to make delivery charges for some high value products which need to be sent by a special delivery method. Where a product incurs a delivery charge this is highlighted in the product details and will be added to your order at checkout.
When we send your products, the package will include a 'dispatch note' with details of the contents. It is really important to check this against the actual contents of the package and alert us immediately (within 7 working days) of receiving the order about any discrepancies.
If you find this product is unsuitable for your needs, or is faulty, then follow our returns instructions to ensure we deal with your enquiry efficiently. Some products cannot be returned. More information can be found in product description where applicable.
Special order products are non-returnable unless faulty. We kindly ask our customers to ensure that any faulty products being returned are packaged securely for stable transit, or the warranty may be voided. Where possible, please use the original packaging. These include specially ordered items that are not part of our standard range. This also includes personalised items, including computer packages, as well as special order canes, walking sticks and more.
