For openers "LOCKING" handles)...
Very GENTLY would be the first caution..

Unlike the brakes on those long ago bicycles we used to have... these WALKER BRAKES are pretty cheesy plastic...

None of the ones I've been compelled to work with have
interchangeable parts... SO BE GENTLE.

Look at both ends of the cable of the first wheel you want to adjust...

You are looking for a threaded sleeve with a nut on it...

If the brakes are too tight you will want to shorten the sleeve...
Too loose you will want to lengthen it (tightening the cable).

DO NOT overtighten...

These are all plastic... cheaply constructed... but EXPENSIVE to replace.

I have had to hand craft REPLACEMENT PARTS to repair these things (nothing is STANDARD (but the careless attitudes).

When you do break'em... AMAZON had the greatest selection...
(knowing the mounting diameter, and cable length is imperative
(sold in PAIRS)).
