Pull Cord on Lawnmower is Too Long

The starter pull cord on my lawnmower is a bit too long for my arm, so the mower is hard for me to start up. What can I do to simplify this? It's the only reason I dislike mowing!

Look in the end of the knob, there should be a hole where the end of the cord is knotted. You can pull the knob lower on the cord and re-knot it, thus shortening the cord.

Or, you can make a series of knots along the shaft of the cord. This makes things shorter. good luck!

Thanks, guy. I'll try the suggestions, as soon as the rain lets up around here in WV. Nica
