This is my third winter coming trying to figure it out what is best method to keep my pool winter cover on my pool. First year I used the cable only and it didn't took long before it was blown away. Second winter I used the shrink wrap. Was blown away also. Then I secure the cover to few 1 gallon jugs and 5 gallon buckets. Cover got ripped in few spots from the eyelets. So I need to purchase new cover this year. Now I'm thinking to do this:
At work we have a lot of rivet nuts and a tool to install them. My concern is do you guys think this is safe? Or the nuts might get pulled out? Anyone did this? I will not stretch my cover like on the picture. I will just use the provided cable that came with cover and secure it with adjustable straps to eyebolts installed in the uprights.
