Blanket attachment inadequate
The blanket attachment kit supplied with this reel is totally inadequate for my 18x36 16 mil blanket. Four of the eight Velcro pads separated from the adhesive backing in the first day of use. The attachment kit is also sold separately here and elsewhere. The Velcro attachment pieces are only one inch square. I have purchased Industrial Strength Velcro from a big box store and I am hoping it will hold better. In The Swim suggested using two attachment kits but the same problem would occur, I believe. The manufacturer did not return my phone message seeking advice. Also, two of the anchors used to secure the telescoping reel sections came loose and I replaced them with a 4" stainless steel bolt.

Good for a few years
The item was great for several years. Now the bearings in the rollers are sticking and grinding. A little extra effort rolling up is not the big problem. When attempting to pull / unroll the cover, the bad bearings cause the whole reel system to drag over the ground rather than letting the cover unroll.
For $250, it should have lasted longer.

Works better than expected
Since I am handy and have tools, it was easy to install/set up. During the 1 month of use, it seems well designed and well built. The bearings make it easy to roll out and roll back. The casters fold in; although I use them to roll the cover out of the way. My only issue is that the glue on attachment for the ribbon connection to the reel may detach and need to be re-glued or connected with a screw.

This reel cover was relatively easy to assemble and the materials seem adequate. They should come up with a better system to fasten the straps to the reel. The Velcro is innadiquate . Overall a useful product and it makes removing and replacing the cover very easy.
