Are you talking about the little lever that contains a rubber piece and mounts up on top of the top tube cradle? If so, it is just to hold the top tube secure in the cradle, if not, then I didn't get a red lever and feel ripped off.

I gathered it had something to do with holding the top tube in that cradle, but how does it work? Its way too high... am I missing the rubber piece?

What does the rubber piece look like?
