+ What is the purpose of the cord lock restraint hook?
Your unit comes with an on-board cord lock restraint hook that provides a secure method of connecting an extension cord to your unit. The major function of the cord lock is to prevent drag on the cord from disconnecting the extension cord from the unit. Please be advised that the use of any electric power equipment without utilizing the cord lock is not safe; this could allow the extension cord to loosen and detach enough to cause a short circuit, irreversibly damaging the unit, the extension cord, the breaker box, your person, or all of the above.
+ How do I adjust the chain's tension?
- Adjust tension with a screwdriver by turning the tensioning peg screw clockwise or counterclockwise to achieve proper tension.
- The correct tension is achieved when the chain in the middle of the bar can only be lifted by approximately 3-4 mm.

The end nut beneath the end nut cover that holds the bar cover on to your unit is a size 13mm metric flange hex nut. Any 13mm socket or spanner wrench will be able to remove or tighten this end nut.
