the latch that holds the drive down keeps working itself loose and let the drive pop up. how do i fix this? the harder i peddle the faster it pops loose.

Hi Mark,

Which model Propel do you have, Ultimate, Mariner, or Slayer? If an older Ultimate it would be helpful to attach a photo of the latch to clarify since there were two versions used.

-thanks

Thanks, that helps a lot. What you're missing is a metal spring-like clip. It is held onto the main bolted on section by the slots in its side. When the slider lock is engaged it the retaining clip then flips down, holding the backside of the slider from backing out. Not sure they are still available but you may be able to make your own out of steel wire. Attached is a description and use.
