How to Fold Folstaf
Grasp sections on either side of a joint. Twist and pull sections apart.
Folstaf joints are lubricated with paraffin wax in our factory, but you will need to occasionally re-lube. Our 50 years of experience has taught us the very best lubricant is paraffin! When the piece of paraffin that came with your Folstaf runs out, any paraffin will do. We recommend keeping a piece of candle in your purse or pack.
Folstaf’s closely-mating swage-and-flare joints (which make Folstaf so dependably strong) can sometimes--due to expansion and contraction, coupled with hard bearing-down—become deeply embedded and hard to get apart. NO TOOLS ARE NEEDED! The trick is to get a vibration into the joint. Here are three ways do this, each of which we know from experience work! (After you get your stuck joint apart, remember to lubricate the male side with paraffin wax.)
Give a sharp ‘karate chop’ just above or below the stuck joint. Then twist-and-pull sections apart. Then lube the male side of the joints with paraffin wax.
If more vibration is needed than a ‘karate chop’ provides, firmly whack the tip of your staff on the ground. (The vibration will rise up the shaft.) Then twist-and-pull sections apart. Then lube the male side of the joints with paraffin wax.
