handle bolts keep getting loose
botls holding cable keep getting loose.
brought back for service twice already and now i have to do it again, owned it for less than 2 years.
(See photos below)
So the first thing I did was to loosen the screw in the middle. Didn't work. Then I loosened the nuts on both sides of the screw. Didn't work but I left both the screw and the nuts loosened. Next, I readjusted the cable adjuster that holds the tension cable as shown below. This was a little difficult to do because of the spring, but I got it adjusted. It seems to me that the cable is kind of long and needs have more tension. I also added a cable tie to the rail above past the cross bar above this mechanism to help put more tension on the cable.
Even though I did all this while in fully extended position, I was still very cautious about it collapsing but it did not. After I did all this I grabbed the handle, pull up, pushed the release lever, and pushed down slowly and it collapsed. In summary: loosen the screw and two nuts, and readjust cable adjuster. Hope this helps.
It turns out the cause and the solution are both relatively simple. The lever pulls the lock mechanism with a sheathed cable, and apparently that cable can stretch a tiny bit over use, until it's so long that there isn't enough tension to move the latch. I was able to fix mine by adjusting the tension.
Lay the stand on its side. Follow the cable from the lever down to the latching mechanism. Carefully pry off the black plastic shield. You'll see the cable is threaded through the center of a compressing spring and attached to the end of an expansion spring. Where the cable sheath is mounted to the yellow part of the frame, there are nuts you can adjust to tighten up the cable. Don't add too much tension, or the locking pins won't ever engage, but make sure there's enough tension that when you operate the lever, the plate moves enough to disengage the locking pins on either side shaft. Once you've got that, the plastic cover should snap right back on and you're in business again.
