    Replacement spring covers for solid Cover

    Has anyone found a source for the spring covers that come with solid winter covers?
    I have seen the replacement spring covers for $5 each. OUCH! Considering the cover has over 40 springs.

    I was considering finding a source for bulk tubing.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Most hardware stores carry clear vinyl tubing. You can take a cover to find the closest match. Here is a random example of 1.25 inch I.D tubing that costs $2.34 per foot. If each cover is 6 inches, then your cost per cover is only $1.17.

    [edit]The wall thickness in this example is 3/16" and would be a little too thick. 1/16" is a better choice. If the wall is too thick, then the spring will sit up too high.[end edit]

    what is the purpose of the cover? when it snows or rains, its still will get wet inside.

    I have the same problem where my springs are starting to rust a bit, I put a little vegetable oil to help prevent.

    The covers protect the deck from getting scratched by the springs.

    The standard LoopLoc type spring cover is about 1.25" I.D x 6 inches long and the wall thickness is about 1/16".

    The larger style of spring cover is about 1.5 " I.D x 6 inches long with a wall thickness of about 3/32".
