Emergency Brake in 98 Chevy S-10

Last night I went to put my e brake on and i heard a snap and the pedal just shot back up. Now whenever i go to put it on it won't stay down. I am in no way mechanically inclined...so does anyone know how much this is gonna run me? I had my cable tightened a couple months ago so I'm thinking maybe the shop where I had it done messed it up so I can maybe heckle them for free repairs.

They have a little ratchet lock on the pedal you apply the brake with. Look up under the dash and you may be able to see it. I would go to junk yard for a replacement. They shouldn't be too high priced.

Hope this helps,
