Did you know that most systems provide the ability to adjust the pressure on the brake casters?
NOTE: When adjusting the brakes, be sure to make the adjustments with the brakes OFF. For manual adjustments, I recommend turning a half turn at a time. Make sure that the brakes can be easily engaged after adjustments. Remember, over tightening can result in the brake pedal releasing suddenly injuring the user or can damage the brake assembly itself.
Cart level D and earlier allow you to adjust the length of the linkage manually and E carts and later models have automatic brake adjustments.

These systems have an adjustment on each brake. You will need to remove the cover and insert an Allen wrench to tighten and loosen the brakes.nn
The older versions have an adjustment nut on the bottom of the caster, the second nut allows you to tighten and loosen the brakes.nnThe newer version uses a linkage assembly to adjust the brakes. Remove the C-clip and drop the linkage down to loosen the locking nut. This will allow you to spin the linkage to tighten or loosen the brakes.nn
