Need help re-tightening bicycle crank
#1
I hope I'm posting in the right place.

So as I was riding this morning, I noticed my pedals starting to loosen.

Upon closer inspection, looks like the entire crank is loose, but I have no idea how to retighten it.

(ignore the cord in the second image, those are my headphones)

In the fourth image, the ball bearings are exposed.

Thanks!

Hard to tell from photos but looks like this one. Looks like the bearings could use grease too.
