The Cover Caddy is already assembled when you
receive it. You only need to mount it before use.
1. When removed from box, spa caddy is in a
closed position (fig.1).
2. Remove safety latch from pin
and swing up (shock assisted) pivot arm to horizontal position (fig.2).
3. Position Cover Caddy centered side to side
on hot tub cabinet (on side of spa with 3í clearance). Pivot arm must be
even with top rim of hot tub. Use the 8 wood screws provided when mounting
Cover Caddy through the 8 holes on the 2 support bars. MAKE SURE YOU ARE
MOUNTING TO SUPPORT BEAMS (under outside cabinet). IF you cannot locate
support beams or none are available to mount to, mount (2) 2x2 wood sticks
to spa cabinet first, then mount Cover Caddy to 2x2s (fig.3).
3. Make sure Cover Caddy is level and even
with the top rim of the hot tub so that when spa cover is removed, the cover
will slide smoothly onto Cover Caddy.
4. After Cover Caddy is mounted to hot tub,
remove pin from cover bracket and depress button on cover bracket. Insert
tube end into right pivot arm (fig.4). The right side cover bracket has the
button on the right side when vertical (see diagram). Slide cover bracket in
until the button pops out in the hole third from the end (final adjustment
will be determined by ground clearance when Cover Caddy is closed). Reinsert
pin in the hole 1 back from button on the inside edge. Install left cover
bracket in the 3 dame way and hole position.
|5. Now is the time to
check the hole position on pivot arm. Depress button on right cover
bracket and rotate bracket inward (pin remains in position). Repeat
step on left cover bracket. Now push down evenly on Cover Caddy to
swing into closed position. Cover brackets should not hit the ground
when closed (fig.5). Always secure safety latch on pin when Cover
Caddy is in the closed position.
6. Return Cover Caddy to horizontal
position and swing cover brackets to vertical position until but
tons pop out in holes. Now you are ready to remove spa cover from
spa, onto the Cover Caddy.
7. Fold back hot tub cover at the
seam and simply slide cover straight back into the cover brackets.
The spa cover can be "slid back" from either the side or back. Once
the hot tub cover is all the way back into the cover brackets
(fig.6), push evenly on back edge of spa cover or cover brackets to
swing down the Cover Caddy into closed position. Thatís all there is
to it! When you are done enjoying your hot tub, swing Cover Caddy up
to horizontal position and reposition hot tub cover.
*Note: If Cover Caddy is not opening or
closing properly (too fast or too slow), the shock on the Cover Caddy can be
adjusted to another hole on the "T bar". For a heavier hot tub cover, move
to a hole closer to the hot tub cabinet. For a lighter hot tub cover, move
the hole farther out. The shock comes installed in the proper hole for an
average weight hot tub cover.
