How it Anchors

Designed for strength and longevity, Loop-Loc's brass anchors sits flush with any deck surface.  The anchor is 3/4" or roughly the size of a nickel. The brass anchor will not rust or corrode, however it will tarnish or darken to a bronze color after being exposed to the weather.  Anchors will sit off the edge of the pool approximately 32".  For straight wall pools, the anchors will be spaced approximately 5 feet apart, and for freeform pools they will be approximately 3 feet apart. 

All Loop-Loc covers work off of tension.  The covers should always be drum tight in order for water to drain through the mesh material so as to not have standing water on the cover.  In order to acheive this tension, the springs need to be compressed to about 85%.  Below is a step by step guide to putting the springs on the anchors.
