I have a winter cover that snaps into the coping and then gets held in place by some beading that you insert all around the pool.
It is tough to install. The manufacturer told me to first put my solar blanket on the pool, put the cover on the solar blanket so it floats, snap the cover into a few spots around the pool, then pull the solar blanket out at one end, and finish snapping the cover in.
That approach works but is hard and exhausting.
1. Does anyone have a better way of doing this?
2. What do you use to push the beading into the coping? I use a rubber mallet and go around the pool and trap it in.
I wrestled this cover into place yesterday by myself and I am still sore today.
