    Help identifying type of liner bead

    Hey all,
    I was hoping someone could help me identify the liner bead on my pool. I measure it and it appears to be 3/8" long, and almost 3/16" thick. Some high resolution photos links are below, but if you needed them from another angle, please let me know. I'm speaking with a company to make the order but wanted to ensure I have the right bead. I believe this is a Kayak bead, but wanted to be sure!

    Thanks so much!

    It looks like a kayak bead to me as well.

    Just following up - This ended up being a standard bead. I worked with the retailer and mentioned it looked like a Kayak - and they said Kayak only made above ground pools and ours is an inground - so it answered that question! The liner was ordered, shipped in and we installed it over the weekend - went in great!

    Thanks!

    Awesome. Crazy there had to be such a variation on bead styles to confuse the masses that dont know.

    No kidding, a ton of stress when you're ordering something that can be quite expensive, but are 100% sure on something as critical as the liner bead. Luckily the retailer I was working with was very confident this was a standard bead, and the one that arrived fit perfectly. Even more stress when the first liner came in with the wrong bead (due to manufacturer error) and you have a very concerned/disappointed spouse - and an empty pool with rain in the forecast!
