Black replacement rubber Type Z ferrules from X-Shops. These 16mm type Z rubber ferrules are suitable for regular everyday use and the heavy duty ferrules feature good quality rubber and an integral washer to maintain shape and prevent wear to the walking stick shaft. Each ferrule weighs 53gms and the height of these replacement ferrules is 53mm and the base (contact area) measures approximately 40mm in diameter.
Walking stick ferrules should be checked regularly for any signs of wear and tear. Your new rubber ferrule should last for 6+ months with regular use. As ferrules are mostly made of rubber they will degrade with use. A worn or split ferrule can easily lead to a slip or fall. Look for splits in the rubber or the contact area wearing thin.
Removing the old ferrule
Twist or rock the old ferrule to break the seal and then pull it off. As this can be difficult, it may be a good idea to ask someone strong to remove the original ferrule. It is just a little easier to remove the ferrule in a warm room. Do not throw the old ferrule away until you have successfully fitted and tried the new replacement.
Fixing the new ferrule
The new ferrule can then be pushed or twisted onto the bottom of the stick. To ensure the ferrule is tightly fitted, simply lean on the walking stick.
