The brake cable listed in these instructions is in fact 1.6 mm dia, which is a standard bicycle brake cable, although I’m not sure what kind of bullet it has on the end. So you could also get this at a bike shop.

The brake cable housing is more complicated. Length is 35 inches to the shoulder of the bushing on one end to the shoulder of the bushing on the other end. The outside diameter of the housing is 6.0 mm. Standard bicycle brake cable housings are 4.0 or 5.0 mm in diameter, and their bushings have simple flat ends without shoulders. Thus, it appears that you cannot buy this part at a bike shop. But it looks like they are available from here:

I recommend putting additional cable ties on the brake cables, especially if the walker is frequently plopped in and out of a car. They tend to catch on things and get bent out of shape.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the advice, it helped a lot. I think the biggest risk is getting a cable that is too thick. The existing one on my Mum’s ‘appears‘ to just be a bit smaller than 1.5mm, so I found this 1.4mm cable on eBay. 2 cables for $5.50 including postage.

Installed it and it worked a treat. If this seller is no loner around, you want to search for 1.4mm brake cable and make sure the ‘block‘ at the end looks the same.

I have seen the exact same cable selling at ‘Specialist‘ websites for $25.00 each - such a rip off. Just taking advantage of our older people.
