I'm looking for a handle that will convert my monopod to a cane or walking stick. Does anyone know of one?

Monopods are not designed for that much weight, unless you are only 50 lbs...

It is more of an easy way to walk with it and a little to cover up what it is.

michael, check out ll Bean and Eastern Mountain Sports for the round corkball head with lanyard. My Manfrotto 680B has the 1/4-20 and 3/38 screw thread and fits the 1/4-20 on the corkball head. In fact there an accessory mini-tripod leg set that screws in the bottom leg (for storage) and permits to cautiously use it a temporary tripod.

I comfortably mount my 70=200 and D800+battery grip on it while I reach into my bag or munch on a power bar.

I raise or lower the monopod height depending if I am going uphill, downhill or on level ground. If you undertake an African Safari in a Landrover this is what you will need.

If you weigh more than 50 lbs be certain to use the larger diameter legs first, I have not noticed any bending or permanent distortion in my decade of use.
