Hi Donald my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answer. To resting the top you will have to remove the cover and starter top , them holding the top upside down and you will see the big spool that the rope winds around , remove the old piece if rope and hand tighten it up then line up the hole going from the outside to inside the spool. Put the rope in from the outside , once it's in through the top and spool tie a knot and holding the rope slowly let it retract and it will pull the rope in
