Echo TR brake lever pin keeps coming out

The pin that holds the brake blade to the lever on my Echo TR brake (disc brake) keeps coming out while I'm riding. I bought this trials bike (new) a little over a year ago; this issue just started happening about 1-2 weeks ago. The pin keeps sliding out the bottom of the blade/lever slowly as I ride, so I have to periodically push it back up several times per riding session to keep it from falling out.

Has anyone else seen this issue? Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks!

So stop me if I'm wrong, but that looks like a spring pin. If you take it all the way out, open it a bit more with a pry and then put it back in (with a pair of pliers or something) it might stay longer. A better fix would be a new spring pin of the same size, an EVEN BETTER fix would be it not being desined with a spring pin

yep, had the exact same issue, what you need to do is tighten the screw going through the lever its self (i think its a 3mm allen) and through to the pin beside the reach adjustment.

I guess I never responded... yes, that did the trick, thank you!
