    i had to buy a new trimmer line holder this year, the one i made myself last year was designed for a 3lb, i now have the 5lb.
    i was going to make another, but saw the one in their catalog for $17. hell, that's about the same price of the materials, and even the gas to drive to home depot plumbing section. not to mention the time doing minor fabrication. (did i mention its about 10 degrees outside)
    anyone have this, any feedback?
    cheaper then any other i've seen, and free shipping.

    Looks kinda cheesy, for a few bucks more I'd go with the Green touch.

    It's what I have.

    Who cares if it's cheap, it's a trimmer line holder for less than $20.

    Dude, we make our own for $3.50 and they work like a charm. All you need is (1) piece of 12-18" 1/2 threaded roll steel, (4) 1/2" nuts and (4) 1/2" fender washers.

    Don't you need something to mount it too??

    I suppose if you have a railing on a trailer, just run it straight up and down. Can't do that in the enclosed trailer.

    Yeah, you just drill holes through one side of your trimmer rack and mount it to the outside of the racks. (Inside would of course interfer with the trimmer fit).

    For an enclosed trailer just spend $2 and add a l_l Mounting bracket
