  • You don't want your scooter wasting a charge while you are carrying/storing it, so be sure to turn it off by holding the power button. 

Step 2. Kneel Down on the Left Hand Side of your Electric Scooter

  • Find the small red knob near the front tire + bottom of the tiller. On the Apex Electric Scooter this knob is black. You will also see a long red lever at the base of the tiller. On support bar that keeps the tiller connected to the deckboard of the electric scooter. 

Step 3. Pull Red Knob, then pull Red Lever.
