Hot Tub Cover Lift
Hot Tub Cover Lift
I was actually quite surprised to find out how essential a is if you’re going to add a hot tub or swimming pool to your own backyard.
Think about it….you’re not always going into your hot tub when the weather is warm and you don’t mind standing outside in your swimsuit (or naked, however you hot tub 🙂
You may be hot tubbing when the weather is a tad cooler, which means you’ll be in a REAL hurry to get in that hot tub AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
The will help you accomplish this all important task!
It is possible for one person to slide the cover on and off of your hot tub without the cover lift, but it’s awkward. It could lead to back injuries, and if your tubbing in the cool weather, pretty much the last thing you want is to wrestle with a cover once you’re nice a relaxed after a soak!
The cover lift is not nearly as “high-tech” as it sounds.
When I first heard that terminology, I thought it would be this fancy, schmancy electrical device that would elevate my cover up and out of my way.
Not so. It’s actually a basic support rod, which makes the cover easier to slide on and off. Nothing too fancy, but seriously necessary!
You can see by my pictures here, the cover lift is not even attached to the cover…it just lays right above it.
It does have a non-weight bearing attachment on each side to prevent it from moving from one side or another, but most of the weight of the cover is concentrated on the bottom of the hot tub cover lift.
I was able to slide a couple of 2”x 4”s under each side of my hot tub. They slid in tightly, and I attached the cover lift to the wood. This made a very secure connection, and I didn’t have to drill into the hot tub itself, which I liked.
The cover can now be easily opened and closed by one person!
This item is definitely worth the investment, and I’m sorry that I didn’t have my cover lift installed sooner!
