Replace the spool on an electric trimmer, learn about the tabs, spool cover, spool housing and making sure you installed it correctly in this free landscaping video.
In this video clip we'll be talking about replacing the spool. First off there are two tabs one on each side that we will need to press in before we can remove the spool. Next we can pull that spool cover and spool housing out of our trimmer, now if we were just replacing our spool we need to install the new one and feed the line through each of the holes, in each of the sides. Once you get the line fed through the holes and the spool back in place and you can replace your cap and snap it in place. Now you want to make sure and test out your trimmer once you reinstall that spool just to make sure you installed it correctly. Everything seems to be working properly.
