Can i fix my own brakes?


If you can work a screwdriver and maybe a pair of pliers, then yeah, I'm betting you most certainly can fix your own brakes.

We'll be happy to help, but in order to do so we'll need quite a bit more information. For example, the make and model number of your walker if at all possible, and adding pictures may help too.

Describe to us what's happening with your brakes; what are they doing or not doing? The more detail you give the better your answers will be.


I can not pull the wire tighter, and the hand brake is still loose.

Try contacting a mobility device shop (i.e. shop that sells or hires out walkers, wheelchairs etc) that does repairs or a bicycle repair shop in your location and ask if they can repair your walker and how much it would cost.

Do Medicare pay for repair

Not to say that there isn't someone on this forum that may know the answer, but I might suggest that a hardware repair forum probably isn't the best place to look for answers regarding Medicare coverage, especially given that this is a worldwide site and Medicare is specific to the United States.

The Medicare site suggests this:

Call us at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). Help from Medicare is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except some federal holidays. TTY users can call 1-877-486-2048.
