The starter spring is wound inside the pocket for the spring. It is started on the outside of the pocket and is slowly packed into the pocket.

Then the starter pulley is placed onto the pocket to capture the spring.

The spring is wound tight as the cord is kept in the little slot in the side of the pulley.

As the spring gets completely tight, the cord is removed from the little slot and allowed to wind onto the pulley as the spring is allowed to unwind.

As the pulley is getting full, you cut the cord and attach the handle. The ends of the Dacron polyester cord must be heated and pushed against a piece of steel to make a flat solid end on the cord or it will fuzz up into a mess.

Use a cord big enough to where it will not pull through itself on the pulley.

No tools are needed except a match and knife to cut the cord.
