This is the first year I've attempted to close the pool by myself. I can't figure out how this plug fits in. I unscrewed the return eyeball but there is another piece in there that won't allow the plug to fit. What do I unscrew? I'm afraid of cracking something.

Hey @IrishEyesSmiling ! Fwiw I put screw my plugs into the outside after removing the plumbing. Also lower the water below the skimmer a couple inches or so - as rain water collects on the cover it will displace the water in the pool & it will fill the skimmer. It’s recommended to pump the cover off regularly to prevent this. A dry skimmer is a happy skimmer 😊
