Default parking break slipping

My parking break is not holding like it needs to, does anyone know how to tighten them up? i would rather try and do it myself rather then go take it to a break shop. It is on a 2005 f150 if that makes a difference. thanks

The parking brake locks the rear wheel brakes, may be time for a rear brake job.

Look under your truck, the cable coming from the parking brake pedal can be adjusted
by taking up some slack. Usually 2 bolts together, behind a u-shaped piece on metal on a cable, attached to each brake. A little penetrating oil will go a long ways in breaking them apart.
