How to I unlock the trigger?

When I press the trigger to start the trimmer, it won't let me press it. It seems as it has some safety lock. Anyone know how to unlock it so I can edge my grass.

When you hold your trimmer on hand please pay attention on the area your thumb can achive, safety lock maybe at that area. Just push it down if you find it out, you will start your tool.

it is a safety feature to stop operators cutting off their fingers

Starting procedure


Terry: According to eHow.com:

"
  • Put on a pair of safety glasses. Remove the fuel cap from the Weed Eater and set it aside. Fill the fuel tank with unleaded gasoline that has been mixed with quality 2-stroke oil in a 40:1 ratio. Replace the fuel cap.
  • Move the Weed Eater to a safe place and lay it flat on the ground. Depress the fuel bulb located beneath the carburetor approximately six times to prime the engine. Press it slowly so that fuel has adequate time to traverse the fuel line.
  • Slide the handlebar-mounted engine "On/Stop" switch to the "On" position. Slide the choke lever beneath the fuel tank to the "Full" position.
  • Depress the "Throttle Lock" lever located beside the engine "On/Stop" switch. Keeping the lever depressed, squeeze the throttle trigger. Release the throttle lock. This sequence holds the trigger in the depressed position, which aids in starting the Weed Eater.
  • Roll the Weed Eater so that it is resting on the engine and the trimmer head shield only. This will allow the spinning trimmer head to avoid contact with the ground. Brace the Weed Eater by holding it to the ground with one hand. Using your other hand, pull the starter rope quickly until the engine begins to run. Do not pull the rope more than a dozen times. If it fails to start by then, squeeze the throttle trigger and continue to pull until the engine starts.
  • Allow the Weed Eater to warm up for about 15 seconds, then slide the choke lever to the "Off" position. Let the trimmer run for another minute without touching the throttle lever. After the Weed Eater has warmed up, squeeze the throttle trigger once to disengage the throttle lock. The trimmer is now operational.

    YARD MAN 42 '' RIDEING MOWER WON'T START PROBABLY SAFETY PROBLEM


    safety switches that all riding mowers seem to have include a seat/brake safety which means that you have to be sitting in the seat or the brake must be engaged for it to start. also there is the blade engaged safety, which means the mower will not start normally with the blades engaged.
    if you meet those conditions check the switches themselves
    non safety related, do you hear a click or a clunk when you turn the key to the start position, this is the starting coil pulling in to send power from the battery to the engine starter, all safety switches will interupt power from the key switch to the starting coil
    if you hear the coil energize and the engine does not start you have low battery voltage or loose connection or some other mechanical problem

    1. There is probably a hook type affair on the back of the trimmer that you are supposed to route the extension through to keep the plug from falling out.
    2. I would never do what I am going to tell you for safety reasons. It is possible to get a piece of cord, a tie wrap or a hose clamp, adjust it to fit over the trigger and around the handle so that when you pull the trigger, you slip this tight fitting device over it and it keeps it held in tightly enough so you don't have to keep your hand on it. Be advised that this is dangerous in that if you drop the trimmer or hit the electric cord, the trimmer will continue to run uncontrollably until you can get to the power, slip the device off of the trigger or the trimmer cuts the electric cord.
    It can be done, but as you can see, it can be very dangerous. These things can amputate fingers.

    I can't get it started and I"m following directions on side of machine.


    Those direction are not accurate all the time, I usually prime mine 4-6 times. put mine on full choke with the trigger pressed and pull 1 time any more will usually flood it, If you have the choke that kicks off after you press the trigger, put the choke back on to half and pull the cord pressing the trigger, Then pull the cord until it starts without pressing the trigger. As before if you press and hold the trigger during the start it will flood these trimmers..This should start the trimmer. You may have to let the trimmer set for about 15 min if it was flooded.

    I have the Morrison BC 260B S2 Weed Trimmer but I don't have any instrucions for its use. I need to know what the mix of 2-Stroke petrol is and its general operation. This is not mine and the owner doesn't...


    I have one of these. The mix is 25 to 1. Before starting use the primer bulb to get fuel through; it says to turn the choke to limit the flow, but I've found mine starts easier with the choke open. To start, flick to on/start position, hold the (safety switch?) flush with the spine, and give it a yank.
