Overview

The FASTEST way to change your cord!

Replace your trimmer cord the quick and easy way! Whether you're in the middle of a project or just getting started, changing your trimmer cord can be a bother. With the  DR® Quick-Lock™ Trimmer Head, it takes just seconds and the cord is anchored firmly in place, guaranteed not to pull out!

For those who often trim dense thickets of weeds in rougher areas, the DR® Quick-Lock™ Trimmer Head eliminates the risk of trimmer cord pulling out in dense growth. Plus, it makes in-the-field cord changes quicker and easier than you ever thought possible.

Simply insert a 13" length of cord into the head and the patented gripping mechanism anchors it tightly and will not let go! Rather than use two longer pieces of cord that are threaded through the trimmer head, the Quick-Lock™ Trimmer Head accepts four shorter pieces and you simply insert the tip. It's fast, incredibly easy, and takes just a few seconds. To remove the cord, simply pull it the rest of the way through the head in the same direction.

Depending on your Trimmer/Mower model, the available cutting heights will vary.

Model shown is only for current model DR Trimmers. If you have an older model, please order through our online parts tool.

Ordered this awhile back & finally had a chance to put it on & try it out. If you don't have one of these, order one now. Great directions on how to change out the old head & install the quick lock head. In less then 1 minute I had all 4 strings in. So simple. Ordered from a very nice lady who made sure I was ordering the right one.

I live the mowers but this is the best purchase yet. Think it should be standard as it is so much better than the old head. So easy. I am 60 yr old woman had no trouble changing it out on the new mower. It holds the string in and for the first time in 20 yrs no lost string... It actually wore out. Never had that happen before. So easy just push the string in and go. No muss no fuss well worth the money, so glad I went this route.

Best string head yet

We have been using DR Trimmers at the farm and at home for years. I was quite satisfied with the old metal loop trimmer head, and could cut and load string in a minute or less. When we updated to a new modle a couple of years ago we could spend a couple of hours unscrewing the assembly to get the old string out every other time it broke off. I was about to have a machinist adapt an old trimmer head from one of out older models to fit it when we found the Quick-Lock head. Now the strings last longer, and they are easy to replace.

Best $69 I've spent in a long, long time!

Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
If you are on the fence about whether to spend the $69 for his head, do it now! I can't believe the difference this head makes. It's like my trimmer gained an extra 20 HP in trimming ability. The first line of the instructions state that the Quick-Lock Head is best "suited for tougher trimming duties." That explains my yard perfectly. 1 acre of rocks and numerous trees. Now instead of spending half my time replacing cords that have been ripped out by rocks or getting to close to the trees, I can trim for a hour straight, or longer, without needing to replace the cord. It's like I have a new trimmer! Now if DR would just come up with a similar improvement for their power drive unit (needs more torque to go over obstacles) I would have the perfect trimmer.

Best Trimmer Head ever!

This Trimmer Head is worth every penny! Changes cords in seconds and leaves a much better cut! I had decided to buy a new high end push mower because I just could not get that manicured look you get with a good old fashion lawnmower. Since changing to this head I'm sorry I bought the push mower. Now I get as good or better a cut and not to mention how easy the DR Trimmer is to push through any length grass next to a push mower on short grass. Only problem is I waited too long to buy DR's Quick-Lock Trimmer Head!!..lol Great job DR!

Install was as quick and easy as everyone stated.. I did expect a bit easier change of string..However I am trying to use string I still had. Some is the square string I am going to try round next time. Still faster and easier to load as long as ends don't break.

This trimmer head is so easy to change cord; very happy that I ordered it! Also...as a side note, the heavy trimmer cord is a blessing. Found that if I lower the trimmer onto tall weeds slowly, it mows them down to the ground quickly.

Easy to Install! So far, it's Great!

My original ball wore out so I stepped up to this new Quick-Lock. The old design was ok, but I always had to have a pair of pliers in my hip pocket to R&R a piece of trimmer cord. I was reluctant to order this new unit, as I was concerned that it would be a nightmare to install. It was not difficult at all to install! It was super easy. If "I" can do it - you can do it. A bonus - This new design cuts W-A-Y better than the old design. It is like night & day - AND the cutting cord seems to last longer. I would give this a 10 star rating if they had 10 stars to choose from!

Not much more can be said that hasn't been said already. This is great improvement and vastly superior to the original mow ball. I've had my trimmer since 2009 and it sees some rough service when trimming cattails and swamp grasses...like a Timex watch, it takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

the only problem I had was the hole in the metal sleeve was to small for the bolt so I had to drill it out to 3/8 so the bolt would fit other than that it works great I trim horse pasture and the old head I would loose my string on the posts but not with the new one did the whole 1000 feet of fence with just one set of strings I also would like to see smaller spacers so we can adjust the cut
Response from DR SupportThank you for your feedback on the Quick Lock Head for your DR Trimmer. We certainly apologize about the hole being too small - we'll be sure and pass this information along to our quality control team. Happy that you were able to remedy that issue and are now able to use the attachment without losing cutting cord. It's a unique and very helpful attachment that we are so happy to be able to offer our Trimmer customers. Thank you for your business and we look forward to hearing from you again.

Not useful for trimming landscaping on lawns
Posted by: ROBERT D. from MILFORD, CT on 06/17/2015
Rating: Product Review Stars: 1.00 star rating
I gave this one star because I am a suburban home owner who trims the edges of a lawn under a picket fence and around landscaping, Because of the lack of incremental spacers for this trimmer head, the lowest trimming height is way too low for a lawn and just scalps, and the next higher level is way too high to be useful. This unit desperately needs to have one of the 1 1/2" pacers replaced with three 1/2" spacers, so finer increments of height adjustment can be achieved. I tried using the 1/2" spacers from the original trimmer head on my 6.25 Sprint trimmer, but these don't work for two reasons: they are too large in diameter; and, the hole in them lack a flattened side that locks it on the quick-lock trimmer's shaft. DR had better have an open purchase order for a mold to make 1/2 spacers for this or I am going to return it because it simply doesn't work for my purpose. DR should make this clear in its literature or else solve the problem. I own a number of DR devices and have high expectations of DR. I don't understand how DR failed so miserably in this instance. That said, if you are cutting ungroomed areas where trimming height is not critical, this trimmer head works brilliantly. The trimmer cord NEVER gets torn out of the head by getting wrapped around an obstacle, and removing worn cord and inserting new cord is delightfully quick and easy. DR: PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM ASAP.
Response from DR SupportThank you for your feedback on the Quick Lock Head Attachment for your DR® Trimmer. The Quick Lock comes with spacers that can be installed either on top of the quick lock or below it. The range of cutting heights varies from 2”, 3.25” & 4.75”. These increments were determined after lots of extensive testing and customer feedback. At the same time we certainly do realize that needs vary as it relates to preference for cutting heights. We are sorry that you are not happy. As you indicated; the cord will never come out and it’s a very simple process to insert the cord – really just slide it into the opening and that is it! Customer Service is available Monday thru Friday from 8:30 am - 5:00 pm Eastern Time. Your satisfaction is important to us. Thank you again and we certainly appreciate your business.

Best Weed Wacker I ever owned

Hello DR... I have used your products for years. In 2011 we bought a DR Trimmer with the old Mow Ball on it. About 4 months ago I ordered the new Mow Ball with the Quick Lock Trimmer Head. Wow, what can I say, it is a wonderful upgrade to the old way of locking in some string. Last night I started it up and mowed down about 60 feet of Black berries that were coming through my fence and the DR Trimmer never missed a beat. Nope, nada... it works great!

Quick-Lock Trimmer Head
Posted by: John S. from Centuria, WI on 05/11/2015
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I ordered this trimmer head as a replacement for my model 6.25 Premier. It was difficult to replace the string (blue) on the original as it is hard to bend. I tried it for the first time this Spring, and it seems to work great, except for a few issues. First, the spacer supplied sets the string too low (for my needs), or too high. I used 3 of the original spacers (that are .5 inch thick and equal to the 1.5 inch spacer supplied), and placed 1 below the new trimmer head and 2 above the head. This gave me an acceptable trim height. I have only run about 1 tank of gas with this configuration, but it seems to be working great. I believe that there should be 3 half inch spacers supplied with this kit instead of 1 1.5 inch one to give a height adjustment option.

I love this head. I wish somebody (DR in particular) would make one for a hand trimmer. I wish DR would make a hand trimmer. Hand trimmers are the bane of my existence, just for trimming up around the yard. No four cycle, no easy re-load, etc. etc. Yes, this is a rant against everybody else. But I love my DR push trimmer with the new head.

This seemed like a great product. Unfortunately the bottom plastic part that comes in contact with the ground, broke within 10 minutes. Am awaiting a replacement.
Response from DR SupportWe appreciate your feedback on the Quick Lock Trimmer Head. In looking at your customer file we see that you did contact our Tech Support Department about this matter. A replacement mow ball has been sent and in fact shipped on April 6th. We are certain that you'll find that the Quick Lock Trimmer Head is a great addition to your DR® Trimmer. The cutting cords will not come out when you don't want them to and will easily remove from the attachment when you want to change them out for new ones. Thank you for your business and for choosing DR® Power Equipment. We look forward to hearing from you again!

Great improvement but...
Posted by: DON from GRANITE FALLS, WA on 09/21/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
I agree with Judy - this is a great improvement by retaining the cords. I mow a lot of fenceline (no-climb wire mesh) and hit the fence quite a bit while trimming under the hot wire. The cords never come out, although they do wear down fairly fast - 2 sets of cords to do 500' of fence. This is better than with the old head which not only wore down the cord but also ripped it out. 4-5 sets of cords for the same fenceline. Having said that, the upper height is great for my fenceline, but for other purposes the low setting is too low and the upper is too high. Much of my trimming is on bumpy terrain and I end up scalping a lot at the low setting. I'd love to see an upgrade with one of the spacers being made as two of half the thickness. That would give me much more flexibility in the height adjustment. I'm considering making my own spacers on my lathe, but a bit stymied by the D-shaped hole in them.

I have been grinding weeds from hell (tumbleweeds)with much better cord life with this. With the old setup I was breaking a lot of cords. The first set with this lasted two fills of gas before they wore down to 4-5 inches. Machine works great for grinding the tumbleweeds into small pieces.

I went by directions and only 2 times trimming bolt sheared off. dr was nice and sent me another. this bolt sheared off. I think this thing is crap and I'm installing my old head back on and 55.00 dollars down the drain
Response from DR SupportWe’re sorry that the bolts broke on your Quick Lock head. We may have had some wrong bolts get sent out & possibly that is what happened with yours? I’m sure we can get it working for you. We think you’ll like the new head a lot once you get it working properly.

We will give you a call to get it working right!

A worthwhile upgrade
Posted by: Andrew R. from SANTA FE, NM on 08/17/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
While a tad expensive, I'm happy I upgraded to the new Trimmer head. Installing and removing cords is vastly easier with the new design. If like I, you buy trimmer cord in a roll and cut it, you'll end up needing smaller pieces which will save some money over time. But the best feature is that the cords do stay on the unit far longer so you will work longer in the yard before having to replace cable. And if one frays, you only replace that one cord, not two. Considering ease of use, less cord waste, I'm very pleased with the purchase.

Great but needs a minor remake
Posted by: Judy P. from HUNTSVILLE, AL on 08/15/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
This new head is great for me! When I hit some high weeds with the old head, the cord would sometimes come dislodged. It never went far-Shut mower off, pick it up and put it back in. With the new head, no more cord coming out, well worth the money! My only peeve is that height is limited for cutting. For me, one is too high or too low. One of the 'plates' should have been made as 2 so you would have more choices like with the old head!

Getting cord in wheeled string trimmers and keeping it there has been a problem for some time. The DR stock head is good once you get the cord threaded in (and hooked in right to the slot above the one you threaded), but the heavier cord is harder to thread (and us older guys hands are less and less tolerant to the force you need). The Quick-Lock Trimmer head is easy to install, it's standard height is right where I want it, cord just pokes right in with little or no effort, and it stays there through the toughest of weeds. I haven't had it long enough to know about longevity of the head unit, and I only use the blue cord, but it breezes right through the toughest weeds and when you finally wear down the cord, changing it couldn't be easier. I would carry extra cord in my pocket as the length this head uses is so compact, but since I wear out before the cord, there is no need. Note that you don't get a new mow ball, so you need to reuse your existing one, but when you experience the performance, the value IS there.

Q.Does this head fit the 3-point hitch trimmer model?
A.The new Quick-Lock Trimmer Head comes standard on the new 3-Point Hitch Fence Line Trimmer Mower and is compatible with Pre 2014 models.

The patented locking mechanism on the new trimmer head anchors cord so it will never pull out, even in the thickest weeds!

Thanks for your inquiry. ;h

Q.What are the dimensions of the Quick Lock? Height, diameter, height of string above the bottom dome and the diameter of the bolt hole. Thanks.
A.The Quick Lock head is 4" in diameter & 1" tall. It has 2 heights for cord placement. The kits come with spacers and bolts except for the TR4 & the tow behind models. They use the same bolt as the "regular" head. The bolt diameter is the same on all versions also, the lengths are different. They still go into the existing bolt hole of the upper head assembly. The cutting heights are different depending on the model. Please give us a call to go over which model you have a question about.
