    Default Zinger winger help

    I have an older field trialer when the trigger releases the eyelet doesn't come off the trigger, just hangs up. Any suggestions would help. Thanks, Paul

    If you have the old style eyelet, this happens. Put some grease on the eyelet. You can also take a dremmel tool and smooth the inside of the eyelet. After lots of use a grove or a flat place
    wears on the inside of the eyelet.
    The long term solution is to buy new eyelets. The new ones are like a rolling pin and slide off much easier. Pictures on ZW website.

    I have done what Wayne said except for the grease, too messy. I broke down and spent the money for the u bolt with the roller pin. Still had them hang up occasionally so I replaced both the release arm and the trigger key on one winger and it has been working great. I now have ordered the parts for the other 2 wingers.. Smoothingout the rough spots with a dremel works but after doing so repeatedly you will wear these parts down too much which in turn causes other problems
