Keeping the Cover Tight

It’s important that the cover stays taut, when it is in use. It needs to be tight enough so that nothing can get beneath it, by accident.

A tight fitting cover will also keep the wind from causing the cover to flap. However, the cover still needs to have some flexibility too. If it is too tight, the weight of snow accumulation can place stress on the cover. We recommend that the springs be compressed about 50% for a mesh cover and 65% - 75% for a solid cover. To adjust the tension, remove the spring from the anchor with the installation tool. Adjust the length of the strap using the D-ring or the buckle and reinstall the anchor.
