The EZ Hot Tub Lifter is the traditional bar style spa lifter that lays across the center fold of the spa cover. This makes it easy for one person to first fold the cover in half over the bar, and then allow the cover to be stored alongside the spa. Comes with a retaining chain to keep the cover nestled next to the hot tub. Cover lifter requires 18" clearance behind the hot tub and 8" on the sides. The lifter attaches to the bottom of the spa cabinet and assembles in minutes.
