How to Tighten the Brake on Your Hugo Rollator

Hugo Rollators are equipped with an advanced braking system that allows you to set the tension of the brake to control the speed of the rollator’s wheels. Depending on the strength of the user to control the rollator, and the upward or downward incline of the surface level, brake tension can be adjusted for faster or slower movement. Control the speed of the rollator by loosening or tightening the brakes.

Tightening the brake in 4 easy steps

1. Place a piece of cardboard, approximately 1/8” thick, between the wheel and the brake shore.
