A ferrule is the rubber sleeve or tip at the end of most walking equipment such as walking sticks, walking frames and so on. Different sizes are available to fit different diameters of shaft.
All walking equipment should be fitted with a slip-resistant ferrule with a tread that is in good condition. Metal walking equipment should have a ferrule with a metal disc built in to prevent the stick penetrating the rubber.
All ferrules should be checked regularly and replaced as soon as they show signs of excessive wear and tear.
We have a wide range of ferrules available, including ice/snow tip ferrules.
