With the telescoping canes, they can collapse.  It helps to slightly 
twist the joints after they are extended.  The quickest way to do 
this is to fully and firmly extend the cane, and place a hand at each 
end of the cane.  Then rotate your two hands in opposite directions 
from each other just a bit.  This twists the cane, helping it to stay 
opened a  little better.
