    Here is ours.

    With a Grecian shaped pool, we have to inset the reel to the edge of the rectangle, and adjust the cover straps accordingly. Kind of a pain, but it mostly works ok.

    Thanks for the pics. I will be buying a whole new cover and attachments and wanted to try and place the new cover in a way that I could have it outside the pool and not when I roll it up alongside the pool edge[attachment=11bny2wx]IMG_0656.JPG[/attachment1bny2wx]
    this shows it along edge of pool
