How To Lock It: Say you wish to lock the Reel about twenty inches from the pin to the Reel case: Pull out the thread and place the disc at twenty inches from the pin —see Figure 3.
Twist the thread three or four times at the disc, holding the thread double with the one hand and making sure you don't slide the disc — Figure 4.
Slowly, move the disc (without untwisting the thread) until it reaches the hole in the Reel case. The disc and thread will lock there — Figure 5.
To Unlock: When you pull the thread it will automatically untwist and will run freely through the disc and into the case.
