SOURCE: How do I install the

Hi and welcome to FicYa, I am Kelly.

You will need to make sure that you have items 21 - 29 of this diagram: Scroll way down 75% until you see the deck and belt, then look at item 27 the deflector shield.

It is a matter of sliding the bolt throught bracket on the mower deck and making sure that the shield safety switch is actuated. (Flip up)

I also read the owner's manual (no help!). The only thing about the shield is on page 14 stating to make sure it is in place.

If your missing the hardware to install the deflector shield you can go to http:www.searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number in the search bar. You have to choose model search then click (go).
You will get this diagram if you choose mower deck:

I'm trying to replace the deflector shield on my craftsman LT1000 riding mower. I have purchased the shield but the rod that holds it on ( which is on the mower) is capped at both ends not allowing them to...


You don't. One one those caps must be removed. Don't lose it as you need to put it back on provided you don't destroy it. It pressed on so will need to be knocked off using a spanner and a hammer. Also after you remove the rod that spring will be hard to get back into position.

How do I replace deflctor shield


You have to hold the spring and deflector in the loaded position (forcing against the spring force) while you feed the pin thru the deflector and spring and back thru the deflector and intor the deck bracket.

Install a deflector shield on a Sears 54" mower deck


Whats the question? If you are removing and replacing the deflector,there is two to four bolts holding it on the tractor. I'am not for sure,about the amount of bolts holding the deflector on. I don't know what model # ,you have. If by chance,you have a grass catcher installed,it will have to be removed,to get access to the bolts. Once again,i don't know the model if you can have to jack up the tractor or not,even after putting the mover up to the highest setting. This is about all i know,at this point. Hope what i suggested to you,helps. Sincerely,Brad Locke DTD. 12/03/15

Is there a way to put the deflector shield in an up position when the mower is not being used?


Find a bungee cord at walmart, this is a heavy stretchable cord with metal hooks on the end.
drill a hole through the outside edge of the shield.
when you are not mowing, put one of the hooks through the drilled hole and wrap the other end of the bungee cord around the grip handle or the steering wheel.
do not hang the bungee cord anywhere on the mower when it is in use as you will somehow turn it into a hurtling projectile of death or injury
there you go!
