Re: spool cap struck
Well you are going to have to cut off the cap off the get to the bolt head inside the cap. Use a hacksaw to cut downward to cut off the cap, this will get you to the bolt head. Depending on the color of the cap will determine whether it is a left threaded bolt or right threaded bolt. Red means left turn clockwise to remove, black means right turn counter clockwise to remove. Good Day

If it is the same as my old 12V version, flip it over and look at the bottom, this is the cap for the string, on the sides there are two push button latches, depress and pull the cap off. Then reach in and remove the old spool. Insert the new spool with the circular sawtooth design to the inside and push the end of the string through the hole in the side. Replace cap ensuring that both latches engage.
There wiil be a nut or a knob at the end of the spool where string comes out turn it left to loosen and right to tighten it. Rmove spool pull down and spool will come off foll directional arrows that shows which way the string should go put spool back on tighten screw or some you can turn with knob at end make sure it's tight before starting.
The notches are there to hold the line in place while you place the spool back on the trimmer. If you look at the spool, you will find, on one end or the other, an arrow showing direction to wind the string. Follow the direction and when you get the spool full, place it into the notch. Leave about 6" sticking out and cut it off. If you have a two string spool, just wind the other string as you have done the first. When you have both spools full and the ends in the notches, place the spool on the trimmer. As you start the spool on, place the string (or strings) in the respective holes. As you seat the spool pull the string that is the farthest in until it comes out of the notch. Do the same with the other string. Seat the spool and try your handiwork. Good luck...Lee
Remove spool by firmly pulling on tap button. Cut two pieces of line (0.080) about 12 feet. Insert the two ends of the line into the small holes inside the spool. Wind the lines evenly and tightly on the spool. Wind the string in the direction of the arrows on the spool. Push the lines into the notches on the spool leaving three or five inches hanging there. Insert the two ends in the two holes in the hub. Align the notches on the spool with the holes in the hub and push it in until it snaps into place. Pull on the lines to release them from the notches.
The nylon string is simply spun onto the emty spool. There should be an arrow on the top of the spool indicating the direction to wind the line. If the spool is missing a notch to hold the line to get started, use your finger to hold it in place for a few full wraps.
Go to home depot. look at the floor model and the replacement spools they sell there. Reverse engineer the stringing process or but a pre-loaded spool.
