How to tighten your Globber scooter and change the spring
It is always a good idea to tighten the bolts of your Globber scooter once in a while to make sure it stays well-maintained and runs smoothly. If you experience wheels pressing to the outside, this may well be due to loose bolts and/or a worn-out spring. Read along and learn how to easily tighten the bolts and change the spring.
If your kid is standing on his/her Globber scooter and experiences the wheels pressing to the outside and the deck scraping the ground, you might believe that your kid has grown too big for the scooter. However, you most likely just need to tighten the bolts. In some cases, wheels pressing outwards could also indicate a broken spring inside the frame. The spring is a wearing part and can be replaced. Therefore, make sure to check the spring when you tighten the bolts.
