How to measure for height: You should measure for your height requirements before purchasing. The grip height for the shortest person starts at 46" and the tallest grip starts at 49". You can measure up from the ground and see where your grip would be. Most poles have a 4" grip handle. One inch for each finger to rest. For example: if you adjust the pole for the tallest position, your grip would start at about 49" and end at 53", measured from the ground. For the shortest position, the grip would start at about 45" and end at about 49". There are (5) one inch height adjustments for the pole. In other words, each adjustment raises or lowers your pole length one inch. The pole is shipped with the setting on the shortest adjustment. This pole is Not recommended for shorter persons.
