Shimano fx 300 spinning reel won't lock the reel

I have the shimano fx 300 spinning reel and flipping the rear lever left or right doesn't engage a lock to prevent the spinning reel from moving when pulling on the fishing line. What do I check on to see if something is misaligned.

SOURCE: SHIMANO FISHING REEL

The drag is set by turning the knob which secures the spool to the reel.

To cast, hold the line against the rod with index finger on right hand. Then flip the bail open which frees the line to come off the spool. The bail, when it gets to a certain point will lock open. When casting, release your finger on the line when the rod gets to 11 o'clock.

Flip the bail back by turning the reel handle -- the bail will pop back over the reel -- then you're ready to reel it in.

The bail is the wire-like device on the top of the reel.

There is probably a button/switch for turning anti-reverse on & off -- when on, this keeps the reel from turning backwards when force is applied to the line.

I think those are the highlights.

The anti-reverse lever is under the body, right against the spool..its recessed a little to keep it out of the way and prevent accidental "switching".. I added a diagram...its number 8978

How can I set the drag on a shimano R 2000 spinning reel


The letter "R" on a Shimano reel typically indicates it has a rear drag.
you should find a know on the bottom end of your reel that allows you to adjust drag tension. Just Remember to back off or loosen your drag when not using your reel to keep your drag in proper working condition.

Shimano recommends that you use PermaLube. I use it and it's great for my reel. Here is a video on Shimano reel maintenance.
