IMPORTANT - When you install the training wheels, make sure to only loosen one of the rear "wheel axle nuts" at a time (see attached image). Do not loosen both sides at the same time.

If you loosen both wheel nuts at the same time, the wheel can slide forward or backwards in the "dropouts" causing these two issues.

1. The amount of tension on the chain will change.
2. The wheel can move causing one of the brake pads to rub on the rim.
