    Broken Fence Bracket.. help!!

    A couple days ago a gust of wind put one of our rafts though the vinyl fence around our pool. One of the brackets broke and i've had zero luck finding it anywhere. I've been to every pool store within 20 miles and have scoured the web. The only lead i found was this site but it doesn't appear to sell the bracket any longer. Does anyone have any idea where I can get one of these? I believe its a Plastival fence but they seem to be out of business.

    Is there some reason you can't just splint it? Remove the screws, cut some plexiglass or polycarbonate and drill a few holes, and the sandwich the broken pieces between a couple pieces with some more Stainless Steel sheet metal screws.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Good call on the polycarbonate it's not pretty but it will do. Thanks!
