    DIY Cover lifter

    I built the cover lifter using the instructions here:

    I mounted mine to the slab my tub sits on rather than the tub case though. It cost me less than 30 bucks. A good savings if you are a DIYer.

    Re: DIY Cover lifter

    Very clever. For twelve years I had to manhandle the spa cover on my Hot Springs spa and I can think of a few times when I was just too tired to bother with it. For the non-DIY's there are lifts available here for $100-$250 (excluding shipping/taxes.)

    Thanks for the link... and welcome to TFP.
