- The wheels are a black plastic but they are covered by a clear hard gel coating. I have not had any trouble with marks on the floor. When I go out with it we always wipe the wheels down with an antiseptic wipe before we bring it back into the house.by hatecrutches8/29/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?

Q. What did I do wrong? My handlebars don't stop turning when the wheels reach their limit and then they are not aligned with the wheels.
- you have to *really* tighten the allen screw that you can see when you release the handle to flop down the handlebars.by AchillesWalmart11/11/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- I hope by now you know the answer! Release the latch to lower the handles, the allen screw in the bottom must be too lose. Make sure the handles and wheels are correctly aligned and tighten the allen screw. Recheck the alignment. LOLby EMT0018/29/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- Hello, I found the large bolt at the bottom of the handle bars needed to be tightened more.by AuntyRie12/11/2014Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- you have to tighten a screw that is within the handle bar...the instructions don't say, but you need to disengage the handle bar as if loading it into car...there is a screw inside the release section...line up the handle bars so they are straight with the wheels, disengage the handle bar and try not to tuen them while laying handle bar down or they will not be lined up, and then tighten this screw with the allen wrench that came with cart. It is a bit tight trying to tighten since there isnt much space...good luck.by dalster11/12/2015Was this answer helpful? (7) (1)Was this answer helpful?

- Yes. It has locking brakes. One on each handle that locks each wheel.by Tmomo22/21/2014Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- This unit came with dual brakes that lock.by Nknnhuiii7/14/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- The brakes do lock on this one. Actually I think both models the brakes lock. There is a pin you push down when you squeeze the brake and as it keeps the brake locked on the wheel. Any movement on the brake lever seems to release it so you learn to be careful. You are right it makes the unit very stable when the brakes are locked and you need stability as you are shifting your weight for loading and unloading into a car, couch, chair, etc. An added feature I did not learn about until we had purchased the scooter.by ScooterinFM9/1/2014Was this answer helpful?
