    I've heard DUCT TAPE can be used for a bazillion things, but TRIMMER LINE truly is the LCO's best friend. Here are just a few of the many ways I use line:

    1. Forgot my belt? no prob...cut a bit and slip it through belt loops & tie.

    2. temporary shoelace replacement

    3. ties the license plate to back of my trailer

    4. use for "tie downs" so brush doesn't fly out of back of truck

    5. use to tie and bundle up sticks

    6. helps hold loose 21" toro front wheel height adjusters in place

    7. temporary bolt replacement for mower handle

    8. helps secure plastic air filter cover on mower

    9. instant fuel filter/fuel line cleaner-outer

    10 instant backpack spray-nozzel tip cleaner-outer

    11. Replacement "straps" for backpack sprayer

    etc etc....

    My whole freaking life is held together with TRIMMER LINE! Feel free to add to this list if this product has simplified your life.

    I have used it to pull a mower out of a verry soggy ditch, about 15 loops back and forth .105 size

    I I used it once to hold my ramp gate up when the pin fell out

    I have used it as a pull rope when we cut a dead branch off of a tree by a house

    used it for a dog leash

    I've used it to tie my trimmer to the rack when I lose one of those stupid pins.
