I agree, they usually come off when an employee winds them up wrong. What we do is this: When they come off we put a couple of drops of thread locker on the threads. It holds it tight but can be removed if neccesary. Ive never had 1 come off after doing this. Hope this helps!

After further investigating 1)the line is being installed the correct way, 2)the head itself is not the problem its the spool that attaches to the head that little white knub that locks it in place doesnt hold it. Going to order the Veri head and have no more headaches.

I've been using Echo for a few years also. This same problem happened to me with a new guy working for me. Everytime he got done using it the spool was loose or fell off and I couldn't figure out why. After the 3rd stop I watched him trimming and saw that he was basically dragging the bump head along the ground, which then essentially holds the spool while the machine is turning against it, in the correct direction to take off the spool. After I showed him again, how to properly trim, no more problems. Make sure you're not dragging it, or holding the bump head onto the ground, instead of tapping it to get more string.
