    How many of you guys use a spool rack permanently attached to your trailers for your trimmer line? TrimmerTrap makes one - but I'm thinking of making my own....anyone done that?

    I made one for my enclosed trailer, just got some flat metal bent into a U shape, drilled to hole near end and ran a large bolt through spool to secure. With a large roll of line I only have to change about every 6 months, total cost $3.00.

    I thought about putting one on my rig but am afraid of it unwinding while going to down the road. Sure would be a liability if it happened. How do you guys keep that from happening?

    I too have one on my gear caddy rack. I just put a rubber band around the spool and slip the end of the line under the band. Been doing it this was for a while and never have had the line unwind.

    I have a tiny hole in the side of my spool of line that keeps it from unwinding
