Question about Lawn Trimmers & Edgers
There is no manual to explain how to fit the gard. It seems that the spool has to be detached, fit the gard and then fit the spool.
This is a Homelite Product.

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.
Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.
Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.
Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.
Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.
Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.
Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position. Put cap on and GO CRAZY!

Okay, so the good news is that YOU are probably not stupid. If you have a Ryobi trimmer like I do, it might have taken you a while to figure out the "secret" on how to rewind the line. If you only had to learn the lesson once, you are smarter than I am. (I'm leaving myself a note for next time).
If you wind the line the wrong way, you go through line really fast until it clogs up inside the bump head and you are forced to try again. The trimmer has an arrow on the spool for the direction to re-wind the line. Think of it this way, TURN THE SPOOL IN THE DIRECTION OF THE ARROW! Don't do what I did and rewind the line in the direction of the arrow, that would be wrong.
Whether this is a "mistake", a way to sell more trimmers/parts/line, or simply bad tranlation from Japanese to Engrish, it really doesn't matter. You don't need to buy anything with the exception of new line.
