      Handy tool
      I have not used the removal/installation tool yet. I did watch a pool tech from the company that closed our pool this year and have no doubt that it will work as well as the device he used.

      Good quality items
      The tools were super easy to use once I figured out how to use them. They did not come with instructions. However use of the tools was intuitive.

      Acceptable performance
      This past year was the first year using them. I did not purchase enough of them to go around the whole pool so I had both the blocks and bags. They were just as effective as bags as both had a tendency to be dragged towards the pool. However we did loose a couple of bags during winter due to leakage and that side wound up in the drink. The aqua blocks stayed full. Some of the lids did blow off and had to be put back on several times. Cleanup was super easy, just dump the water and stack. This ... read more year I am getting enough for the other half and possibly positioning them diagonally to keep more weight on the cover to keep it from slipping. I'm done with bags. However they do take up more space in storage.

      Best time saver yet
      After 2 off-seasons with water bags, I just got enough of the aqua blocks to cover about 3/4 of the perimeter, thinking I could use the remaining bags that had not already broken for the rest. I loved the 3 sides that got aqua blocks, and cursed the entire time on the side with the bags because it took twice as long as the other 3 sides combined, and got me all wet! I have already replaced 2 bags due to leakage in the last 2 months. Next year, it is all blocks, all the way. Any money spent on ... read more the blocks will be made up in time savings with your first install and spring takedown - definitely a must purchase for people like me who HATE pool maintenance!

      Does the job
      Not sure why the lid catches are not more secure... They need a bit more plastic in each catch to hold the lid properly. Often, the catching mechanism is so flimsy that it's difficult to know when the lid is actually locked in place.

      Worked perfectly!
      We desperately needed these replacements and never thought we would find them. Shipped quick and replaced easily! So grateful!

      Awesome Product
      Prior to using the Safety Cover Mate, every spring we would open the pool to find it looking like a scene out of the "Creature From the Black Lagoon". On a recommendation from a friend, I purchased this product prior to closing, last September, stretched it out over our mountain lake pool cut it using a utility knife with the pool coping as a guide and let it drop right in. I put in the submersible pump on the top step, under the Cover Mate and put on the Loop-Loc. To my surprise, we opened the ... read more pool last week to nice clear water. Scooping out the leaves was easy because I able to see them!!!! I threw in the automatic vac to do a fine cleaning, added 2 gallons of shock and took a sample of water to be tested at the local pool supply store. Even more to my surprise, I was told I only needed 5 bags of salt. Everything else was perfect. The pool was ready the very next day. The Safety Cover Mate has already paid for itself and then some. My normal annual cost to get the pool ready to swim in was around $400 and would take me a week or two of constantly dumping in chems and cleaning the cartridge filters. This year it only cost me $43 in salt and minimal effort.

      Bought to use with mesh cover
      Bought to block light and trash from going through my mesh cover. And hoping I don't have a hot algae mess when I open the pool next spring. Simple to install, just unfold and stretch over the pool. Floats on top of the water and rain seems to easily run off the sides. My 75lb dog likes to walk across the cover and remarkably the cover mate has stayed in place so far.

      I really won't have an opinion until I open next
      I installed the cover and cut it to fit,it actually made putting the safety cover on easier. I really won't have an opinion until I open again to see if it was worth the expense

      Cover Springs
      I looked around quite a bit before finding the correct set of cover springs. The ones on my pool were starting to give out from some of the overly abundant snow we get during winter here. Originally I ordered the wrong ones and In the Swim quickly and easily refunded and exchanged them for me. The products are perfect OEM parts and the customer service rates second to none.

      Great Winter Cover Products
      Great stuff! Only had to replace one broken anchor and 5 springs because of the 4th largest winter northern IN had on record.

      Replacement anchors
      My old anchors were worn from the severe winters we have in the northeast. These are the same as the originals and fit neatly in the replacement holes.

      The name says it all! MAGIC!
      We use this product when closing and opening our pool. Before we started using this product we always had a water scum line when we opened the pool. The enzymes in this product break down organics, which prevent scum-line formation. No more scrubby mitt clean-up! This product makes spring clean easy and enjoyable! Highly recommend this product.

      Works Great

      Openings are great with it used at closing
      Just like the review title states. Openings of my 30,000 gallon pool is easy and great with using this product at closing. I also used it at opening. I didn't get algae grow at all this late winter to opening at the end of May and I live in western MD. I will purchase again in the fall for closing and one bottle used in late winter and then for opening.

      Good pump
      has no base to stand flat on the cover, other than that this pump works like a champ
    2. 1 year ago
      Money well spent
      This is our second year of using this pump and it's still working like brand new. For the money, it's definitely a great little pump and keeps our cover clear of excess water.

      Durable
      Second one I've bought first one was ten years old still running good

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Pool Safety Cover Parts & Tools

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    More on Safety Pool Cover Parts & Accessories

    Pool Safety covers are the best thing going - they always look great with minimal care and cleaning, and can last for over a decade! However, safety covers do require some maintenance and parts replacement from time to time. Here we have assembled safety pool cover parts, tools and accessory items, to keep your pool safety cover in tip-top shape. In The Swim replacement parts and tools will fit all brands of safety covers by Buffalo, Cantar, GLI, HPI, Loop-Loc, Meyco and more. 


    Brass Cover Anchors: Cover anchors should be replaced if they become inoperative. Old anchors can be removed with our Brass Anchor Removal Tool, which allows you to easily leverage old cover anchors from a concrete pool deck. Simply tap the new Brass Cover Anchor into the hole with any type of hammer, using the Anchor Tamping Tool. Thread in the pin to the anchor and connect your spring. 

    Installation and Removal Tools: The main tools needed are the Cover Hex Key, a tempered steel Allen wrench of the right size to fit any brass cover anchor. Extra long hex key can be used without kneeling down, or when used horizontally, makes a fast anchor spinner. The Safety Cover Installation Rod is the second main tool that every safety cover owner needs. Notched steel tube with heavy duty handle allows for levering the strap spring over the cover anchors. For removal, twist the Installation Rod between the spring and anchor and simply lean it forward, towards the pool.

    Extension Straps and Hardware: Extension Straps are used to extend the cover straps to anchors placed off the pool deck, or beyond a planter area. The Y-Strap for safety covers is used when a diving board, fountain or other large obstruction, allowing you to connect to two anchors on either side. In this section we also have replacement stainless steel safety cover Strap Buckles and cover Strap Tips. Stainless steel rings are used in place of the cover spring, in cases where a wall is tall wall is within 15" of the pool edge.

    Specialty Anchors and Stakes: Specialty safety cover anchors are aluminum Cover Stakes that can be used in planter or grassy areas, or in paver pool decks. In this section we also have cover Wall Anchors used for installing safety covers on inground pools with raised wall or raised deck areas.

    Springs and Spring Covers: We have two sizes of safety cover strap springs, and the vinyl covers that are used to prevent the small scratches that cover springs can make on a pool deck, as it expands and contracts. Use the 4" Short Springs only in locations where there is not enough room to use the longer 8" Cover Springs.

    Storage Bags and Patch Kits: Safety Cover Storage Bag replacements for storing your safety cover safely during summer, are made of mesh cover material, with durable tie rope to cinch the bag tightly. Safety Cover Patches are made to quickly patch both solid and mesh safety pool covers with a self-adhesive heavy duty patch, 3"x8" in size, in 5 colors, and 3 types.
