This was something new that I tried when I saw it on overstock.com when I ordered the pool cover. We had always had trouble keeping the cover down when the wind is up. The pool cover would always flap around and I'm sure that always contributed to the short=lived winter covers in the past. The clips have been great so far- they have kept the cover secure and there has been minimal air under the cover, so the cover doesn't move around as much as it used to without the clips. I used two clips per section, so I might have over-secured, but for now, it appears to be a good solution for our problems.
