    Best Way to Attach Solar Cover

    I have a solar cover that will need replaced next spring. I think I'll try a clear bubble cover rather than the blue one I have now.

    I'm looking for suggestions regarding the best way to attach the cover to the reel. Are there any attachment kits out there that work well? Any to avoid?

    Velcro? Which clamps? Which straps? Which kit?

    I like the Fehrhguard staps and hardware. They use a plastic thumb screw that screws into a plastic backing that connects to the strap. Personally a lot easier than the alligator type clamps I've seen. Velcro doesn't seem to last very long.
