My lawn mower handle height adjuster pop out constantly and goes to the lowest height setting. I have to stop after every turn and adjust the handle height back up. It has continually gotten worse since I bought it last year. Is there a fix for this?

Have not heard this problem before, thus no solutions on tap.  Contact customer service for diagnosis and possible part replacement or repair.  Call early in the day to avoid a long wait or leave your number for a call back.

Szwoop's advice is right on. I wonder, in the interim, if you can find some string/rope or even a velcro strap to wrap around that lever and handle to help hold it in place? Heck, even a c-clamp or spring loaded clamp, anything to keep that thing from popping out.

My mower came with the holes in the handle adjuster brackets mis-aligned. The handle height would not engage at all.   I had to bore out the holes slightly to allow the spring-loaded pins to "pop" through the bracket holes.  (With customer service acknowledgment).  I do not recommend any changes to a mower that is still under warranty, however.  Call customer service.
