In this blog post, we’ll show you how to adjust the Worx trimmer head to get the perfect cut every time.

Open the trimmer head.
Open the trimmer head by depressing the release button on the side of the head and turning the spool retainer counterclockwise. Draw out the old cutting line from the spool. If you are reusing the same spool, cut off any frayed or damaged sections of line.
Locate the line tension spring.
The line tension spring is located on the underside of the trimmer head, and its purpose is to keep the cutting line taunt. Over time, this spring can become loose, which will cause the cutting line to sag. To fix this, you’ll need to adjust the spring.
Adjust the line tension spring to increase or decrease the tension.
If you find that the trimmer line is not feeding properly, or if it is breaking too easily, you may need to adjust the tension on the trimmer head. The Worx trimmer head has a spring-loaded adjustment knob that can be turned to increase or decrease the tension on the trimmer line.
To adjust the tension, first make sure that the trimmer is turned off and unplugged. Then, remove the spool cap by unscrewing it from the top of the trimmer head. Next, locate the adjustment knob (it will be a small knob with a Philips head screw in the center).
Turn the adjustment knob to the left to loosen the tension and to the right to increase the tension. Once you have adjusted the tension to your liking, replace the spool cap and screw it back into place.
Close the trimmer head.
Turn off the trimmer. Close the trimmer head by pushing the release button on the top of the head, then sliding the head back until it locks in place.
