Cannot attach the power head to edger attachment. Will not  "click in" with arrows aligned. If I rotate left slightly the shaft will slip in but will not click in place. Release button remains depressed. It will turn the blade but shaft is loose even when tightened with side bolt Just got this 10/5. Seems like it is defective

Hi Gary.  If you get the splined shaft engaged does the attachment slide into the powerhead side until the line on the attachment it flush?  If so, will rotating it back and forth get the shaft to click in place?

Here's a video demonstrating:
