I've just bought a Bosch Keo garden saw, and am having problems fitting the blade. My understanding is that you slide the red spring-loaded rotating collar to the unlocked position, insert the blade, then allow the collar to return to the "locked" position. The problem is that the spring-loaded collar doesn't seem to do anything. If I present the blade to the slot it will not recess into the blade holder, and rotating the collar does not allow it to be recessed any further (and certainly doesn't lock the blade in place).

Has anyone else got one of these? Is there a knack to it?

No but I have a jig saw with that type of chuck and the set of replacement blades I bought had wrong end (U type) and would not lock; also have a JCB reciprocating saw that the general Bosch replacement blades would not lock into as not enough shoulder.
So make sure you have the right blade end design if not the originals!

Thanks - that thought did cross my mind, but the blade was mounted in the box that the tool was sold in (slotted into a custom mount in the cardboard surround), so my assumption is that it must have been of the correct type.
