It adjusts the height of the passenger foot pads.

Pull the lever and the pads will raise up. Pull the lever and hold and push them back down with your feet.

Your not right :lol: I like it but you can imagine the response from a short red head. :D
She now has to use my pegs first to climb on to get up high enough to reach the seat.
