Adjust the angle by moving the L-bracket and the wheel mounting bar until the angle between them is 135 degrees. Re-tighten the nut carefully, make sure not to move the position of the L-bracket. You can use the rubber stopper bar to keep the L-bracket from moving while you tighten the nut. 5.4. Make sure that the rubber stopper bar can move freely without excessive play.
