|NOTE: For Oval pools, the most critical
and variable measurements will be on the sides of the pool, not the curved
ends. These are the measurements you will need to compare to determine
whether or not your pool is "out-of-round".
D. Subtract the shortest distance measured
from the longest distance measured, if the difference is more than two
(2") inches your pool is "out-of-round" and you will need to adjust the
length of some of the rafters to allow the frame to properly fit the top
of your pool. We recommend trimming rafters down on opposites
to get the proper fit rather than extending opposites with the spacers
provided. Trimming is preferable and easier.
The new resin capped and resin top railed pools that have
come into the market place cause no problem for the installation of the
universal brackets. They can be installed just as easily as pools
with metal caps and rails. There are a few minor changes that must
be done. Especially those newer top rails that are wider than 6".
When installing these anchors, make sure the anchor goes throught both, the top cap and the top rail! If the underneath of your pool top rail is accessible, you can also use a bolt, nut and lockwasher arrangement. If neither of these applications will work on your pool, please contact:

3. The "J-hooks" can be installed on the resin vertical supports, using standard conical plastic anchors and combo pan head screws. These are also readily purchased at your local hardware or home improvement center.
