    pool hand rails and lifting the solar cover over them

    I have a problem here....we have a semi public pool so we have to leave our hand rails up. But....we have a solar cover that we have to lift over those railings every day.
    The thing is heavy and it's even heavier since we have a commercial 15 ml cover.
    I'm thinking there must be a way to make those railings collapsable so that we could put the cover on wheels and just whell it over.
    Does anyone have any ideas/thoughts on how I could make this happen?
    Thanks in advance.

    What's at the other end of the pool? Most people put the reel at the deep end.

    No deep end...it's a sports pool, so 4 feet both ends and 6 in the middle

    This is a little expensive but... there are hinged inserts that are usually used for ladders on pools that have automatic covers. I'm not sure who makes them, but you'd need 4 to get your handrails to lay down on the deck while playing with the cover.

    Like I said, they are pricey and you'd need 4, but it is an option.

    If anyone know who does sell these inserts I'd love to hear. I've contacted several automatic pool cover places now and they don't seem to know what I am talking about.
    Thanks
