Another Heartwarming Example Of Human Ingenuity — A ‘Snap-On’, On/Off Ice Crampon For Walking Sticks.

by Anura Guruge



Click to access Amazon listing. It should be back in stock soon. I guess I bought the last one.


In my old age and my increasing infirmity I am, these days, never far from a walking stick. You will rarely see me outside without one. At the last count (this morning) I now have seven (yes, 7) active walking sticks stashed around the garage and house so that I can always easily have one at hand.

Given that we live in the arctic circle and winter is here, a big concern is that of I slipping on ice (as I did on February 28) and further damaging my already deteriorating body. So, I went ‘Googling’ on Amazon. I had faith in human ingenuity. Didn’t take long to find the above.

Beyond perfect. The DAMN thing folds up, at the snap of a finger. Brilliant. Love it. Tried it out today. Great.

Isn’t human ingenuity just so GREAT.

The first picture was taken at 4:11pm. We had just pulled into Hannaford, Alton. I thought that that was about as good as it would get.

Then, 20-minutes later, out of the windows, I saw the purples. Had to abandon my shopping cart and run outside to take the other pictures.

Enjoy.
