Default Ryobi RE175 spindle lock

I got this used Ryobi RE175. I couldn't find the spindle lock to change router bits. Can anybody help? Thanks.

Hello Fred, welcome to the forum.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Fred

I believe some of the roybi routers have shaft lock bar on top of the motor. (opposite of end from where they usually are )

Looking forward to your participation.
Filling out your profile to include (first name,tools and short bio is strictly (optional )but does help members to better relate to each other.
Thank You John

Thanks. I found it on the top of the router. It was sticky and I tried quite a few times before I could push/slide it all the way through.
