Toro Trimmer, line keeps retracting

I have a Toro gas powered trimmer D-51000 series.

I re-configured it from blade to line cutter, and for some reason the line keeps retracting back into the spool. Is there way I should be securing the line inside the spool?

It sounds like your spool has the line wound in the wrond direction to the rotation of the trimmer. Try rewinding the spool opposite to the current direction to see if it helps. You could also replace the bump head with a no-brainer head replacement that Tanaka sells. It will handle a 16.5 inch long piece of line and when that is worn down you just replace that piece of line.
