How To Put A String On A Weed Eater


Weed eaters are a great tool to help maintain your lawn or garden. They are easy to use and require minimal maintenance, but occasionally they need to have the string replaced. If your weed eater is in need of new string, don't worry! Replacing the string on your weed eater is a simple process.

Replacing the string on your weed eater is a simple process that only requires a few minutes of your time. Here are the steps to help you put a new string on your weed eater:

  • STEP 1: Disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. This is to make sure the weed eater will not start while you are stringing it.
  • STEP 2: Remove the spool from the weed eater by pressing the release button.
  • STEP 3: Measure out the length of string you need. Most spools come with pre-measured lengths of string, but if you need more, measure out the length of string you need with a tape measure or ruler.
  • STEP 4: Cut the string to the correct length. Make sure to leave extra length on the end so you can tie a knot to secure it.
  • STEP 5: Thread one end of the string through the eyelet on the spool. Make sure the string is snug and secure.
  • STEP 6: Wrap the string around the spool. Make sure to wrap it tightly so there are no gaps or spaces between the wraps. When you have finished wrapping, tie a knot at the end of the string to secure it.
  • STEP 7: Re-insert the spool into the weed eater. Make sure to press the release button first and then re-insert the spool.
  • STEP 8: Reconnect the spark plug wire. Make sure the wire is firmly connected, then you are ready to start using your weed eater again.
