[BCAB] OT, elastic lost inside new stick

Hi Listers

Just out of interest, I have a virtually unused, new long cane and the
elastic has broken.  Is there anywhere or anyway I can get it replaced
rather than pay out for a replacement?

Many thanks

Alan

Exactly what I would do, stiff wire tied through the end of the elastic then
fed through the other sections of cane in turn until it can be pulled
through the final one with the elastic following.

Hi,

Similar to Mo's idea but attach the end of the thread once removed from the
last section to something else such as a length of wire or cord which can
more easily be fed through the length of the final section.
Pass it through and use the attachment to pull the elastic all the way
through.
