Grass strimmer cable is sold either on a spool which you just slot into your strimmer or as the line alone, which you'll then need to wind onto the base of your appliance. If your strimmer requires the line to be wound onto the base of the strimmer, here's how:

  1. Unplug the trimmer from the mains.
  2. Remove the bobbin and the old line.
  3. Secure one end of the new line to the tie clip in the bobbin, and then wind the rest uniformly in a clockwise direction around the bobbin.
  4. Feed 10cm of line through the small hole in the rotating head, before pushing the bobbin back into its surround.
