Although the rubber tip on your cane may require you to replace it at some point, that’s not the only reason you might decide to switch it out. Due to the many styles and colors of canes that are available, you might prefer to remove the original rubber tip on your cane and replace it with one of a different color to add a fashionable flair to your cane or to make your cane more pleasing to your eye. Note that changing the color of your cane’s rubber tip might take a bit of work, but it’s not an impossible task. Whether the tip requires changing or you simply want a new look for your cane
The rubber tip is designed to fit securely on the bottom of your cane so it will not come loose when you are using it, but it is able to be removed with a little effort. The tip is not attached with any adhesive, so you won’t need any special tools or chemicals to remove it. The first thing to try is to turn the cane upside down, and grasp the rubber tip firmly. Twist the tip while pulling to remove it from the walking cane. You might have to work with it for a few minutes. It’s possible, however, that the tip might not come loose at this point.
