For those of us with the Unbreakable Umbrella that hard tip doesn't provide any traction on a smooth floor.

I fitted one of these onto mine today and it works perfectly to make it grip the floor and not slide.

A pair cost me $5.

I've never met an umbrella that couldn't be broken if used improperly enough.

That said, that's a pretty neat trick.

Also, I was going to ask how a trekking tip for an umbrella was a weapon, but after these first few posts it has become pretty clear. :D

How do you like the Unbreakable Umbrella? Ever taken it through airport security?

Ever taken it through airport security?

All over the world without a second look.

The addition of the tip allows it to viably serve as a cane as well as an umbrella (the old tradition of the umbrella cane, modernized) making it a more useful item (since I've been known to use a cane from time to time).

Ah I think you've got me sold. Always felt vulnerable going overseas without that familiar weight at 4 o'clock. Nobody would question strolling in London or one of the tropical vacation spots with an umbrella.

I think a hat like Odd Job (James Bond movie villain ) wore would go very well with the unbeakable umbrella. :)

Might be a bit heavy and impractical.

I have also flown with an Unbreakable Umbrella.

Unbreakable is probably not 100 percent accurate, but it is warrantied for life against anything you would do with an umbrella or a baton... so whaling on things with it doesn't void the warranty.

I'm quite pleased with mine.

That looks like it would be really useful. Now, if it would only rain here once in a while. Maybe if I invest in one, the weatherman will take the hint.

Good thing is that it is cheap.

Thanks for the tip (pun intended) for this umbrella accessory. Just got an order of same from Amazon today and it fits like it was made for it.

Great compliment to a great under-the-radar personal defense tool.
