Yep, I was wrestling with it today, like I do any other day. I grease it once a week, which is far too often for a trimmer rack. I have a 3 slot trimmertrap rack. I have two line trimmers, and a stick edger. Trouble is that the piece that slides up to open the rack, is against the trimmers themselves, making it tough to open, and it is literally chewing up the equipment. It's like trying to open the door on the truck while leaning against it. Kind of a ******** idea. Oh well. Maybe next month I'll get something different. I am real annoyed with this rack. I can't believe someone in their right mind would design something to work in such a ridiculous fashion. The piece that moves up and down, should not contact the equipment. Especially with the shape of the pieces that hold the trimmers at the handle. It pulls the trimmer against this moving piece. And makes it even tougher. Like it almost wedges against it. I'm not complaining much about the force it takes to open it. Oh well. Keeps me from having to go to the gym. But when the line trimmers are getting their asses kicked from being in a rack, that is a problem.!
