Re: I am trying to get the hand break attached
There is a screw in adjustment to allow you to install it, screw both ends if they both are adjustable, then you can reattach, after than screw each end back out to adjust. Hope this helps you! and Merry Christmas!

check that the brake pads aren't catching on the rim or the tire, check that the brake cable isn't rusty inside the housing or corroded. check the bolt that attaches the brake caliper to the frame to see if it is too tight.
Remove the pump from the frame on the top end or bottom end there will be a hose attached to a fitting that will fit on your fill valve of the tube...pull it out, it will be about 2 feet long
Hold in both hands and pull and push on the air pump to fill the tire.
Please take time to rate me
The majority of bike pumps have a lever right behind where the attachments fit in. When lifted so it's in line with the ball-blow-up adapter, this locks the attachment in place. When pushed down so it points along the hose, that unlocks everything and will allow you to pull out the ball-fill needle, and put another adapter in, or use it directly on a bike/car tire. It's a simple fix, but fairly common system. If you've tried that, in rarer cases they'll screw counter-clockwise out, or can be unlocked by a gear, or twist-top knob on top of the pump.
Hope this helps you!
after placing the tire in place simply take the brake glide elbow l and after squeezing the brakes together place it in the hanger its the floppy bar on the left side brake arm after fitting these together place the rubber boot on the remainder of the glide and voila your done :) this is based on a v-brake system that was simply opened and had not had cable removed if its another brake style simply leave a comment here stating so and ill walk you through another style if needed ok :)
If you are trying to attach the cable to the brake scissors on the tire, then just loosen
the brake scissors clamp, run the brake wire thruthe clamp hole, and tighten down.
Make sure the lamp is not tight on the tire before you tighten down the screw.
Getting hand-brakes adjusted correctly is often a challenge, but they are adjustable with the right size wrenches. On the other hand, a front hand-brake on a child's one-speed bike is not necessary and is only on the bike to give it sales-appeal. If this is a one-speed bike, then it has a coaster brake (operated by pushing the pedals backwards). Actually the coaster brake is much safer than a front hand brake anyway. If the child applies the coaster brake too heavily, they will just skid. If they apply the front brake too heavily, they will go over the handlebars. If the hand brake is not interfering with the front wheel and is just not very effective, I would just leave it as-is. If the brakes rub on the tire, you should adjust them so they don't rub the tire.
I did no find assembly instructions specific to this model. From what I see in pictures and descriptions it looks like a standard caliper brake on the front wheel. The knob/plug on the cable should fit into a groove and hole on the brake lever if the cable is slack enough to make the connection. You may have to loosen the cable tension nuts at the caliper and at the brake handle (labeled 1 & 2 in the instructions) to get enough slack.
Generic instructions are at:
See pages 21-23 for instructions about adjusting the brakes. You will have to do this after making the connection and it shows the various cable tension nuts that you can use to get enough slack in the cable to connect it. If you loosen the cable tension nuts (1&2) enough you should be able to remove the cable from the slot through the housing, expose the attachment slot in the brake handle by pressing it against the handlebar, insert the knob/plug into the hole and then work the cable back into the slot in the housing. Tighten up the tension nuts and make the final adjustments as described in the instructions.
