handle, which is included, must be installed in order to use this add-
on.
Follow the instructions
outlined in the trimmer's operator's
manual
in order to remove the current handle and its clamps, screws, nuts,
bolts or other hardware.
NOTE:
The trimmer may be equipped with a small J-handle. This
small handle is NOT an acceptable substitute for the larger J-
handle that is included with the 316.792440.
Remove the smaller
J-handle so the larger, 24-inch handle may be installed.
