Question about Ultra Duro-Med Ultra Lightweight Rollator

Open Question

I bought a second hand duro-med rollator (4 wheel) and the brakes are on all the time and to take brake off, you have to squeeze handle. This is obviously backwards. Any know how to reverse this? I have called mabis, but they want to sell me new parts with no guarantee that this is the problem.

How do I set and release the brakes


On most walkers the handle you squeeze to make the brakes work will push down. If you push them down the brakes will lock on and pull up to unlock.

How to adjust parking brake on winnie lite 3 wheel rollator


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)).

Brakes will not lock in parking position


There are adjusters on the brake cables that are designed to solve this problem. The cables for the brakes run inside a flexible housing. When you squeeze the handle, the cable should engage the brake. The problem is that the cables inside the housing stretch over time and do not work as well. There is a threaded adjuster at the handle where the housing of the cable goes into the handle. If you turn this adjuster counterclockwise it will, in effect, make the housing longer and the brake cable tighter (shorter). This should engage the brakes better. It make take some trial and error, turning the threaded adjusters clockwise and counter-clockwise to get the proper setting for your strength and comfort. This same adjustment technique applies when you pull the handles down in the park position and when you squeeze them to slow down. Hope this helps.

I am having problems with my front disc brake with my Yamaha Yazer 2009 the plates are heating up coz the shoes are in contact with the plates the wheels are also running tightly.I checked it with my...


1. Check your brake pads thickness, make sure they are in good condition, else replace
2. Make sure your brake disk are not warped. If they are then replace them.
3. Spray the pads and caliper piston with a good brake cleaner spray to ensure that no sticky gunk is hindering it from operating properly.
4. Remove your caliper bolts, clean them and give it some good moly grease.
5.After that it is time to tackle your brake lines, unbolt your brake banjo bolt, squeeze hand brake till all fluid comes out, clean it with clean cloth, bolt it back on. Now open your master cylinder reservoir, make sure it is not empty, fill it with brake fluid to normal level. Pump brake few times until it take effort to squeeze, hold it and open caliper bleeder valve wide open while continue squeezing, it should shoot a lot of oil with dirt, keep squeezing brake until it bottoms out, close bleeder valve, repeat pumping the brake handle until becomes hard to squeeze, hold it, open wide bleeder valve, it should be clean now, otherwise repeat process again until it comes out clean.
While doing that keep your maste cylinder oil level at full level, do not let it run empty.
Now ride the bike to 20-30kph, apply brake occassionally to adjust it.
Good luck and happy riding.

How do i remove the front tire of my men's voyageur bike? I know how to work the release hub, but how do I get it past the brakes?


There is usually a release lever (or two) to allow the brake caliper to open a little extra wide. Some have a tab on the brake handle that you can twist to the side which allows the brake handle to spring open a bit extra (it has the effect of requiring the biker to have large hands to operate the brakes.) On many others (or yours may have both) there is another lever on the brake calipers that allows the caliper to open a bit wider. This lever usually has a little round tab a bit smaller than a dime. If all else fails, simply deflate the tire before your remove the wheel and re-inflate it after you put it back on. (terminology -- brake lever is the handle that you operate while riding the bike. brake caliper is the mechanism at the wheel that squeezes the rim when your hand squeezes the brake lever.) I hope this helps.
