SOURCE: How do you remove the line spool cap on a toro

There are 2 tabs, 1 on each side of the cap. You need to press these in at the same time to pull the cap off.

Toro tb65ss upper string head removal


  1. Pull the spark plug wire from the top of the spark plug. Bend the wire to the side to prevent accidental starting.
  2. Place trimmer on its side with the trimmer spool head facing you. Press the two tabs on the side of the spool head with your fingers.
  1. Hold side of the head and slowly allow the head cover to push away from the inside of the spool head. There is a spring between the spool head housing and the spool that pushes out when releasing the cover.
  1. Pll the knob and spool out of the spool head. The spring should come out on the back of the spool.

  1. 1 --> Unplug the Toro trimmer power cord from the electrical outlet.
  2. 2 --> Lay the trimmer on its side. Hold the spool housing tight in one hand and twist the cap counterclockwise with your fingers. If necessary, use a pair of large slip joint pliers to start turning the cap. The cap is the center piece of the spool.
  3. 3 --> Pull the cap off the spool and remove the spool from the housing.

Lost the manual. can't figure out how to get the spool out to replace the line?


There are two buttons on opposite sides of the head that allow the cap to be removed. With cap removed you will have access to the spool.

I hope this helps you.

Need info on putting line on troy bilt 4-cycle string trimmer. Need to know how to get spool off trimmer to replace trimming string on the spool.


Hold orange spool containing string while twisting the black plastic cap in the center, counterclockwise. This retaining cap is loosely spring loaded, so watch for the spring falling out. Once this locking cap is removed, the spool pulls right off.

I need to put in new string -- don't know how to install. I need to know what to remove -- do I unscrew something, or do I just stick the string inside the casing?


This trimmer is an "AFS" (Automatic Feed System) trimmer meaning the trimmer uses centrifugal force and a lever that play out trimmer line without you ahving to bump it on the ground. Your trimmer uses .080" diamter line. You can get a replacement spool and lever at Lowe's fairly cheap. I would say get the spool that is already wound rather than trying to buy just the line and re-spooling...that will make this a LOT easier!

What you do to replace the line is place the trimmer on a stable flat surface (like a workbench), raise up the head of the trimmer and follow the steps below:

1. Remove the spool cover (this is the orange cap on the head)

2. Remove the spool, (observe and note the orientation of the spool!)

3. Using a pair of pliers, pull the orange feed lever straight out (observe and note the orientation of the lever!)...do not try to pry it off, you will damage the head!

4. Insert the new lever in the same orientation you noted when you removed the old one.

5. Insert the new spool and line in the same orientation as the old spool.

6. Replace the cap.

Black and Decker has an 800 number you can call if you get stuck, the number is 1-800-544-6986. Good Luck!

How do you add trimmer line to Troy Bilt TB539E Weed Eater?


This model trimmer uses .095" diameter line, your local home improvement store will carry replacement line and it will also carry a replacement spool with the line already spooled on it.

This trimmer is a "bump advance" trimmer meaning you bump the head on the ground while it is spinning to advance line out.

What to do to replace the line is place the trimmer on a stable flat surface (like a workbench), raise up the head if the trimmer and unscrew the cap and CAREFULLY remove the spool...you do not want to lose the spring! Take a look at the spool, it will show the direction to spool the line, spool the line then replace the spool by first putting the spring back on the shaft, then put the end of the line through the hole(s) on the side of the outer head, press the spool in place and screw the cap back on.

Of course you can eliminate about 90% of the headaches by buying a pre-spooled head at your local home improvement store...then you follow the directions above and can skip the spooling part. Cheers!

How do you take the spool off the Homelite gas grass trimmer?


Push in on the spool & turn counter clockwise. This works for most trimmers. Careful though, the center spring may pop off with the spool. (I wouldn't do it on a hill)

How do i replace a spool on the weedeater xt110. I cannot seem to get the spool to release and I do not have the owner's manual.


Just line up the two arrows across from each other to those on the the spool housing on the bottom of the spool. Then grip the bump knob and pull straight out. It takes a good grip and some force, but it usually gives way.
