Good for a few years,
Date:September 6, 2013

Pros: Performed well for a few years. Wheels can be flipped up to let reel stay in place.
Cons: Bearings are now deteriorated. Cover is hard to roll and unroll
"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.

Blanket attachment inadequate,
Date:August 17, 2013

Cons: Recommend with reservations due to issues noted below
"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."
