Trusty Cane, a TeleBrands Corp. product, is a walking cane that doesn’t fall over when you let go of it. In addition to that, it also has a swivel head, built in lights and it folds when not in use. It is sold under the As Seen on TV brand.
Trusty Cane Features
The biggest selling point of Trusty Cane is that it doesn’t fall over when you let go of it thanks to its triple tread base, which means it sits on three pads instead of a single pad like a regular cane. The triple tread base was designed to improve stability while the pivoting head moves more naturally with you, making it easier to walk on steps, up and down slippery slopes, on grassy hills, on rocky paths and on steps and stones.
Another selling point is that Trusty Cane is foldable, so you can transport it easier or fold it and put it away when you’re not using it. When you fold it, you can secure the folded pieces with the strap attached to the cane. To unfold it, you just undo the strap and let the Trusty Cane uncollapse toward the ground. It will snap into place and be ready for use.
According to the product website, the Trusty Cane, which is available in either all black or in a flower and butterfly pattern, can be adjusted to five different heights from as short as 31 inches to as tall as 38 inches and it weighs just over one pound.
And, lastly, it also has built in lights, so you can always see where you’re going, even in the dark.
Unlike other stability canes that sell for much more, TeleBrands bills the Trusty Cane as highly affordable.

Although the Trusty Cane does seem to make a lot of sense and comes with some good features, the real question is whether it is sturdy. Objects that fold down like the Sturdy Cane does tend to be a bit flimsy. However, without any consumer reviews to go by, this is purely speculation. You could always order it and test it out to see if it would work well for you, as long as you’re willing to pay at least $7.99 to do that (and willing to put up with As Seen on TV brands notoriously poor customer service if you want to return the product).
The safer bet is probably to try and find Trusty Cane for sale in a store somewhere or order the Trusty Cane from a different website that has a better return policy and better customer service. If it is sturdy and it works as advertised, the Trusty Cane does look like it might be helpful for people who need to walk with a cane.
