    Attaching solar cover to reel Kidney shaped pool

    Hello Everyone,

    It's finally getting chilly at night here in Southwest Florida ( lows in mid 60's) which means its time to run the solar heater. My pool is a kidney shaped 26 x 12 with a two person bench on one end. I purchased this reel reel and cover. I know the placement of the reel should be at the widest point. I was wondering if anyone has pix of attaching the straps to the tarp? Specifically, do I have to cut slits in the cover to attach. The reel was used and I need to buy a new strap kit. Any advice or photos would be appreciated. The water temperature is now un-swimmable at 78 degrees! Thanks in advance. Here is a link to a pix of my reel:

    The ones I've seen, you just fold a seam in the cover about an inch and the strap anchors clamp over that.
