    Need pool cover clips that will fit Intex Ultra Frame

    We recently purchased a 22ft Intex Ultra frame above ground pool. Because we live in SW Kansas, wind and debris are an issue, and the pool must be covered when no one is swimming in it to maintain any kind of cleaness. Because of this, the cover that comes with the pool, which has holes to allow the rainwater to drain into the pool is worthless as it allows dust and other small debris to constantly dirty the water. So we have purchased a winter cover that is solid, that has a cable running through gromets on the edge that you tighten around the edge. While this works most of the time, a good Kansas storm will take it right off, so I would like to purchase cover clips to help keep the edges down. It would also make it easier to put the cover on. However, all the clips I can find say they will not fit the Intex Ultra Frame. I have googled it, I have gone to the Intex website, but I still cannot find clips that will fit the ultra frame. Does anyone know where I can find any?

    Hey there Kris! Welcome to TFP!...what took you so long to get here? <snort!> Glad you found us.

    Just a suggestion for your cover request- Check out how 911Medic holds his cover down. You can see pics in his most recent thread below:

    I love the recycling aspect, but also the sheer weight of the water filled bottles has to work a charm I bet!

    Thank you for the welcome, and I did see 911medic's thread. While it looks like a really great idea for holding down the cover over the winter, it didn't look like it would be very easy to take on and off on a daily basis. I would still prefer clips if I could find some that would go over the intex ultra frame.

    What about wrapping bungie cords around it, just below the rail and over the tarp? That would be easy to take off and put back on.

    Might have to try that if i can't find clips, but is there really no one who makes clips to fit the ultra frame?

    meh, i guess not. Anybody have any ideas about what kind of clips or clamps might work? I don't seem to be able to make the bungee cord thing work.

    Re: Need pool cover clips that will fit Intex Ultra Frame

    Ok, I'm offering this up with full declaration that I have little clue what the edge of your pool (or any AGP) is like......but what about hardware squeeze clamps. Skippy and I had to buy some for a bookcase project we're doing and they came in all sizes and types. Plastic, steel, aluminum, strong and less strong.

    I have heard and may try..someone used cut pool noodles. Slip over the frame. Might give that a try. I never cover mine cause like you said the original cover just falls in anyways.

    Re: Need pool cover clips that will fit Intex Ultra Frame

    Yippy, lol, i don't think those will work. Here is a pic of the horizontal beams of the Intex Ultra frame 22 ft pool, if that helps
    lol found that hair clips might work if only they have a strong enough spring 61Z0NthOTXL._SY679_.jpg.


    Tipher, that sounds like a good idea, will check into that but I am afraid they might not be big enough, those beams are 4" at their widest part.

    What if you just tied a rope loop on the ultra frame and used a carbine to clip the rope loop to the grommets in the cover?
