You are probably wondering what the hell is a foldy mech well its just a shorter word for the little lever you push down and that makes it fold.
There are good things about the foldy mech like 1-the most obvious you can fold it,but over time it bends from constant use.
But not if you bolt it which is what I'm going to teach you how to do.
If you do it right then it will be even better then before.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

1-Razor PRO model scooter.
2-Regular tools (screwdriver,wrench,etc).
3-Most important---  1    3/8 inch bolt, Has to be 3 inches long. 1 of these.  with nuts. lol but seriously
4-Most important---  2     5/16 inch bolts, Has to be 3 inches long. 2 of these. with nuts.
5- 6 lock washers + 6 regular washers
Thats all
I went to home depot to get the parts and it came out around 6 bucks which is really expensive for just 3 bolts and some washers. But it is extremely worth it.

Step 2: Take Out Old Hardware

Step 3: Install New Hardware

IM currently bolting my new razor pro now and ive done some but how do u get the peice out on the lower bolt

i think your talking about the carter pin.
It looks like a little horseshoe you just put a screwdriver and hammer it under the carter pin and it should bend then pop off.
if you look at the picture.
You put the screwdriver right in between were the carter pin stops and just pry it off.
its hard too explain but im sure you'll get it.
just reply if you have any questions
