How do I unlock the safety on a brand new einhell bt-ms 210 t saw... cant seem to lift the blade up to remove protective plastic
Bought this saw brand new... but nobody seems to be able to tell me how to unlock the 'safety' so I can actually lift the head, remove the plastic guard and actually start using it. The so called Users Guide included is not worth the paper it's written on. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

The bed moves down so that less blade shows on a skill saw. The locking lever is usually between the blade guard and the handle. Look for a lever and pull it up to unlock, then move the bed down to expose less blade, then push the lever down to lock the bed in place. Please supply a picture of the saw you are using.
Push the reciprocating head protecting your hand with a glove if necessary. All the way to a center point just above the shoe or table of the tool. Then loosen the two fasteners that bind the blade keep horizontally from the spool head. An Allen head is a six sided wrench. Where a Torque style is a star style. Either equivalent in a T-handled wrench works best. On to removal.
Support the spool head from shifting around with one hand whilst torqueing the fastener counter clockwise to remove or loosen it to free the blade. Should the blade be seized or jammed in the well of the spool head. Use a pair of needle nose plyers to free the blade by vigorously shaking then pulling.
All of this should be done with the electrical plug removed from power to protect your safety. For me. Safety glasses should always be worn.
Yes, Did you buy it new? It has two heavy plastic seen through plate that
are attached to each other. This safety shield is gravity fed. That mean as one
pull down the saw the safety guard will pivot into the upper shield. As the saw
go back up after cutting a piece of wood. The safety shield will drop back into
it safety position covering the 12" blade. GB...stewbsion
