How to replace the line in a string trimmer / weed whacker

In this video I demonstrate how to add more line to a string trimmer that has run out of string in order to cut down your weeds! The process itself is pretty easy once you know how, but I remember my first time trying to figure it out that I had almost no idea of how it was done. This was demonstrated with a battery powered Black and Decker weed whacker, but the procedure should be similar for most single line weed eaters.

Sorry if I didn’t have my usual level of energy, the temperature was 92 degrees fahrenheit with 70 percent humidity, for a feel like temperature of 104 degrees fahrenheit (40 degrees celcius) and I’d been working in the sun for a few hours at that point. Next time I’ll try to get a nice cool glass of lemonade before filming!
