    Hurricane low profile Solar Reel is engineered for heavy use. Its powder-coated heavy gauge aluminum frame is super strong, lightweight and will never rust or corrode. The large stainless steel crank with handle at one end makes turning the reel easy. Precision sealed bearings allow a single person to effortlessly glide the solar blanket off your pool. Hurricane Solar Reel will support solar blankets up to 16 feet wide. Standing only 12 inches high, this low profile reel can fit under most diving boards for easy storage when not in use. The set includes all straps and necessary hardware.

    • great produce... a bit too light weight
      Verified Purchase

      The whole reel is light (not heavy) and blows over (into the pool) with strong wind gusts. We drilled ours to our deck to secure it. Works perfectly now.
