on most of the cars us use a special spanner tool that resembles a bent screwdriver. you pull the plastic cap out from the back of the drum and then just turn the ajustment wheel till you feal it tighten up a litle. Remember to put the plastic cap back on. Also a old trick most people don't know about is put the car in reverse in a parking lot, and slam on the brakes. most cars have a auto ajustment that they never use.

SOURCE: parking brake is stuck on
need to get the truck on jack stands remove the wheels and if the truck has drums you maybe able to use some PB blast because the brake cables are rusted for the emergency brakes and at the same time you can check out the condition of your shoes or pads if you get any oil on the shoes or pads use brake cleaner to clean them off

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.

there should be an adjusting screw around the lever that is used to apply the parking brake. if you tighten this until there is a slight drag in the back tires and then back off two full turns then that will adjust the parking brake.

Follow the brake cable near the rear brakes and where the Y is loosen the locking nut and then unscrew the Y so that it is loose, that is turn the nut counter clockwise to loosen both sides f the cable. Also check that the E brake cables are not broke inside of the cable housing.
