Cane Clips Serve As Table (Nov, 1937)

Cane Clips Serve As Table
SMALL clips that can be readily attached to a cane or walking stick in such a manner that they will support cups and plates have proved to be popular with hikers in England. The clips can be conveniently carried in a box or knapsack and attached to the stick to serve as a table, keeping food off the ground away from bugs. The clips consist of a simple metal ring to which an adjustable clamp is riveted.

    As an adult I became skeptical of claims such as “have proved to be popular with hikers in England,” seeing them as hopeful PR rather than reports of fact.

    Yep, these things work great, until the cane falls over. (Which considering its not stuck in the ground is about half a second!)

    @Hirudinea have you never seen an old-style fellwalker’s cane, which usually had a good three-inch-long point on the bottom? Of course they can be stuck into the ground, just like this, and were also useful for fending off stray dogs, etc.
