Loosen the cable nut at the rear brake, pull the cable until the tension is tight, then tighten the cable nut. Since the parking brake only operates on the rear brakes, your rear pads may be too worn causing the parking brake not to hold. Check the pads first to see if they need to be replaced. Also, the parking brake cable can stretch or break over time. Verify that isn't case since you may need to install a new cable rather than adjust it.
