Re: nylon cane holsters?

I don't have a cane holster but there are times when I wish I did. For example, I've gone to parties (remember those?) and someone will want me to dance. When I'm ready for a drink or whatever, I would rather have my cane to find my way. People tend to forget I'm blind and drift away so I need to have my cane, but I'm certainly not going to dance with it extended or hold it folded in one hand.
I will have a cane holster soon because it'll make my life a little easier when I can again go to rock shows, parties, whatever. 🤞

I've never heard of a cane holster. Why are they used? If it’s a folding cane, the elastic band at the top of the cane can be looped around it to keep it folded. I assume that is what is being discussed, something you keep a folding cane in but why?

Hi, my family and I just opened our christmas gifts and I recieved a maxi
aid white cane and a leather cane holster.

I have had a similar leather cane holster from maxi aides in the past and it
ended up rotting on me (we live in a hot and humid climate).

I also used a nylon cane holster after that which lasted me about 13 years.
this one is tearing apart and I am now on the hunt for a new nylon cane

My wife's mom said that maxi aides only carried the one leahter holster and
no nylon holsters and my wife did a google search and the first thing that
popped up when she typed "mylon mobility cane holster" said it was "denim".
No other results came up in the google search results.

Am I going to have to disassemble a foldable camp chair with a nylon seat
and back and make my own now?

Just wondering on your experiences finding the items for your mobility and
carrying needs.
