Product Description


The First Easy-Handling Solar Blanket Storage System 

The Solar Saddle is a unique and simple storage solution for above ground pool solar blankets.  Tired of that soggy solar blanket lying on the deck or the ground?  Or maybe you've been struggling to roll it up on a solar reel.  With the Solar Saddle, you can quickly fold up your blanket and store it right on the side of the pool, within easy reach for the next use.

Easy to use, simple to install, and affordable!

The Solar Saddle features a set of five flexible mounting brackets that attach to the top rail of your pool, giving you the freedom to install the saddle exactly where you want it.  Easy to position out of sight on the back side of the pool.  Once installed, you simply fold up your solar cover and rest it in the brackets.  This folding method keeps your pool much cleaner than solar reels which allow collected debris from the top of the blanket to dump right into the pool.  The Solar Saddle turns removing and replacing a solar cover into a one-person job whether you are in or out of the pool.  Includes five mounting brackets and all hardware.

Features

  • Easy installation takes about 30 minutes
  • Strong yet lightweight
  • Able to hold the largest size above ground pool solar covers
  • Makes it easy for one person to quickly remove cover
  • Helps to keep your pool cleaner
  • Prolongs the life of your solar blanket
  • Much more affordable than a bulky solar reel

Typical installation setup of Solar Saddle onto top rail of above ground pool

Solar Saddle hardware includes:

  • 5 Mounting Brackets
  • 20 Stainless Steel Bolts
  • 5 Hex nuts
  • 5 Mounting Pins

Installation requires two holes per bracket  to be drilled in the top rail of the pool. Each bracket extends out from the side of your pool 18" and down the edge of the pool 19".

Pictures above show a solar cover on a 27 foot round pool stored neatly and out of the way.

I have a 24 ft round pool with a deck and railing all around it. Will the solar saddle attach to the deck railing rather than the pool itself?

A     Answered on 3/21/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

The Solar Saddle connects to the wall of the pool under the railing only and cannot be safely installed to a deck rail. Please see the photos of the product on the description page for a better view of the hook to see if it will meet your needs.

I just recieved my solar saddles and tried to mount them, however there is ribbing under my ledging and i cannot get them mounted the way the instructions say. there is no flat area to mount them to a pencil width away from the pool side.the only place i see i can mount them is if pushed them right against the pool wall. and that is really tight . How do i mount them in this situation?

A     Answered on 6/25/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi William, Based on your explanation I don't see a workable way you can mount the saddles to the rails. .

How do these attach. Do you screw them into rails underneath? Will it rust over time

A     Answered on 5/28/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Hello, You will need to drill into the top rail to install the solar saddle. If you have steel top rails, they may rust over time. You can use some Rustoleum spray before installing the solar saddle to help prevent this.

?     Asked on 3/14/2016 by John

Can I get replacement pins and U-Brackets? I would like 5 of each. Mine worked well for most of last year, but the pins are not held in place by anything and some of my U-Brackets broke. One word of warning, Don't store the cover in these saddles when it is raining. The rain water will overload the U-Brackets and cause them to fail. Otherwise, this system can be made to work well (If I can get replacement parts). Thank you!

A     Answered on 3/17/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi John, You can contact SolarEZ via email at solarezinc@yahoo.com for replacement parts.

A     Answered on 8/12/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Bob D.

A     Answered on 7/9/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

?     Asked on 5/4/2013 by Guest

Are there different instructions for a larger pool? If not, how much farther apart should the saddles be?

A     Answered on 5/4/2013 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Unfortunately the manufacturer doesn't have any other instructions for a larger pool. Per the manufacturer: Note: If your pool is 28 foot or larger you just fold the solar cover back on top of the outside saddles, or you may want to purchase single saddle kits that are readily available.If the brackets are spaced farther apart than the recommended distance, the weight distribution will become uneven and may cause premature failure.
