Brompton Shopping Cart Mode: Is the handle supposed to rattle?

When I'm using the Brompton as a shopping cart (basket installed, handle extended), is the handle supposed to feel a bit shaky/rattle when I push the Brompton? Or is it meant to feel solid?

I ask because my bike fell over a few weeks back and I found a small broken-off screw head nearby which until now I don't know if it's from my Brompton.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

the Bag frame mount ing block bolt? was the bag on at the time ?

poprivet to hold the aluminum tube of the bag frame itself
in the nylon part where the bag frame fits over the mounting block.


the hinge T knob is a big bolt , may just not have enough turns to tighten the 'Pacman' clamp.

really working in the blind ... tech savvy young people love taking phone videos of things ,

maybe the problem in pictures is more readily described..

Well I'm not even sure there is a problem, that's why I'm asking. It doesn't affect performance per se, only when I push the bike in shopping cart mode there's a bit of a rattle.

You may be right, but I have to get home and test it out to be sure. Thanks for the reply

It's all good, I went to the distributor and they fixed the problem (tightened a screw apparently). It's not supposed to rattle.
