Sliders & Guide Feeds
Your Automatic Safety Cover contains a series of Sliders and Gliders (which, let's be honest, is just fun to say). The items are injected molded polymer components (say that 5 times fast) which attach to the rope(s) on the cover fabric that runs in the track channel.
There are four main types of Slide/Guides:
- Under-Track/Guide (UG) - mounted under the coping of the pool or to the top beam of the pool walls
- Top-Track (TG) - mounted to top of pool deck
- Horizontal/Flush Guide (FG) - mounted in-the-deck (approximately 2" - 3 1/2" in width)
- Vertical/Flush Guide (FG) - mounted in-the-deck , smaller profile than horizontal (approximately 1"- 1 1/2" width)
But you may be searching for Guide Feeds, and these little darlings attach to end of the track (located at cover housing end) and they help guide the rope from the mechanism into the track channel. Because everyone needs a little guidance now and then.
