    Loop-Loc Tool

    Hi There,

    The pool is up and running great. I am looking ahead to little projects and gathering items for closing this fall. The previous owner had a service do everything on the pool. It seems he also took or retains the tool for removing the cover.

    I was wondering if anyone could take a picture of the end of a removal tool? I will just fabricate with stuff I already have. It looks like the tube has a ID to fit over the Brass attachment and then is cut half way around.

    Thanks in advance a picture would really help.

    Thanks,

    I saw the ad for that one. Pretty sure I can make one in about 10 min. Hoping to get a shot of one to speed the process, or I will just start experimenting.

    Thanks

    I am sure you can make one. All mine is, is a light pipe with a notch on the end. I will go out and measure the silly thing. I would just use a bench grinder and grind half the end.

    OD 1"
    ID 7/8"
    notch depth 1/8" (mine is worn, might be 3/16)
    2 foot long, with a rubber bike handle.

    The material rusts and holds a magnet, so I dunno if conduit would work. It needs to be thin enough to slip between the spring-loop and the deck lug (or whatever it is called), mine is about 1/16"

    Good luck.
