Paper clip saved my sanity
« on: November 07, 2015, 08:17:35 pm »
Had to replace a starter cord on one of my J'reds today.....

For the life of me, I couldn't get the dang cord to go through the freakin' hole on the wind!  Try as I might...wife finally thinking the neighbors were going to call the law from the language being used in the driveway said two words.  "Paper clip"

Small bend with pliers and I pulled the stupid thing through one the first attempt!!

Just took the paper clip and bent it around the needle nose plier tips in the shape of a 'U'.  Stuck it in the hole, fed the rope into the hole and then lifted the paper clip straight up(with the rope).
