Does Car Cane Work?So many people suffer with chronic aches and pains that getting in and out of a vehicle comfortably can be a real hassle.It isn’t just seniors who have this problem either. So a product like Car Cane may be an excellent investment to help deal with what can sometimes be a serious problem.

Overview
The Car Cane is a simple device that hooks into the door opening of your vehicle. It then provides a handy grip that can be leaned upon to help anyone that is having difficulty get out of their vehicle. Normally for people having a hard time doing this, they are always trying to find something on the door or side of the car to grip, to give them some leverage. This can be dangerous if their hand slips.

The Claim
The company claims that the Car Cane is extremely sturdy and is made of forged steel, which can withstand up to 350 pounds of weight. When not in use it fits easily into the glove compartment of the vehicle. They say it fits and works for any car type, from SUV’s right down to the compact vehicles.

The Hype
The hype focuses on what the Car Cane can possibly prevent from happening. All too often people who have difficulty getting out of their vehicles can have trouble with their footing. If it is snowy or icy or even wet where they are getting out of the vehicle, they can easily slip.The Car Cane at least allows them something to hold their weight while their get their footing adjusted.


The Cost
The cost is $19.95 plus $6.95 shipping for the Car Cane. If you add an extra $6.95 for shipping you get the swivel seat.

The Commitment
You are going to have to train yourself to remember to use this device. You will most likely store in it your glove compartment, and may be tempted not to bother reaching for it. Make it a point to use it faithfully the first few times, and you may soon discover you don’t want to get out of your vehicle without it.

Evaluation
Just watching people struggle to get out of their vehicles is a common occurrence, and it is easy to see why a product such of this would be in high demand. If those who had this difficulty were to evaluate it, then they would probably equate it to that of a helping hand. You know where you see someone having a hard time getting them out of the car and you offer your hand to them.? You can feel their weight on you as they use you for leverage. The Car Cane does the exact same thing.

Final Car Cane Review

We’re going to give the Car Cane a thumbs up rating. It definitely has a usefulness. It appears to be well made and easy to use. It is reasonably priced. Something else that we really liked was the bonus swivel seat that you can get with your offer. This addresses another issue that a lot of people have at the same time as trying to get out of the vehicle. Just getting turned around to get your feet on the ground can be hard. Being able to swivel to do this could be a real benefit. A lot less stress is placed on the body that is already hurting from some type of chronic condition.

Our Recommendation
There is nothing wrong with using any form of device that is going to help you to stay safe and relieve an unpleasant situation, or help to reduce pain from movement. Another product that we talked about in the past that seems to have been well received is the Hurry Cane.

What do you think? Does the Car Cane work or not?

I ordered a Hurry Cane and found that it did not fit my older car. The thing only fits cars that have a rectangular latch opening. Mine is round so therefore consider that before you buy. It does not work on every car.

Just a post script, I named the wrong product!!!!!!!!! It is the CAR CANE that I was reviewing. Please pardon my blunder. PS#2 It does work great on my friends car which is a ’09 Hundyia SP? but you get the drift.

It looks to me that this product may have started out as a safety tool. Window smashing hammer with seat belt cutter and flaslight and then someone realuzed what is now its marketed use. Brilliant actually. I’m not sure why they are not promoting the other uses. It clearly appears to have a seat belt cutter in thr handle.

I Regret Buying it!

Do Not Buy
I ordered the Car Canes on April 26, 2015. On June 12, 2015 I had not received them and I checked with their website and they could not find my order. That same evening, I got a phone call from a man trying to explain a “gift” gas program that was to be included with my Car Cane order. The first thing he asked me was for the correct address to send my Car Canes to. I told them to just cancel the order and he said he had to transfer me to someone else to do that. After he transferred me and I told the lady to cancel my order, she said it had been shipped the day before and that I should just refuse the shipment when it is delivered. If they needed the correct address to send them to, how could they have been shipped the day before? Something very fishy going on here. I guess I just threw $31.00 away, but you live and learn.

I had hip surgery. I am a large fat man over 300 lbs. I bent the car post enough that my car door doesn’t shut properly. What was a get well gift has not worked out very well for me.

That’s the first thing I thought about seeing the add. That’s a lot of leverage on that poor latch post, and the post is not necessarily designed for lots of up and down pressure, especially right out there on the end of it where the cane hits. I guess for most people it may be OK, but consider the situation you’ll be in if you bend your latch post and you can’t latch your door for the drive home or wherever. And they show someone standing on it?!! Bizarre.

I can’t speak about the product but I can tell you that if you order from their website, your credit card will be billed and the product will ship even if you didn’t confirm the order. There’s no cancel option, there’s no back button to remove your credit card details, just a ‘confirm order” button that I know I didn’t press. Customer Service told me I must have done “something” to confirm my order and that’s why it was shipped. This is the only company I’ve dealt with in all my years of online shopping that operates like this. The actual cost came to $41.03 CDN, nothing near what I expected which is why I didn’t click on confirm order. Buyer beware.

I ordered the car can after “seeing it on TV.” I received it rather quickly and am happy to have it. I use it every time I’m in my car as the driver — or as a passenger. I recommend this very handy invention.

Sorry, my first submission said “care can.” Should have been car cane!

Does not work on all cars!
Look at your car door latch first!

The only good thing is the pointy end could break car windows if you’re trapped!

We just bought this at a local Walmart and paid $19.88 Canadian… When we Googled this product there were lots of retail stores carrying it, and we just phoned a couple of local stores and found it. It is a gift, and so, with the bill, it will be returnable if it is not suitable.
