Hi , just want to know if there's 2 screw hikes to attach this piece to the bottom?

A  Answered on 4/20/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Larry. This Upper Piece does not have screw holes, it clips over the top rail. The Lower Support - 1490277 do have the screw holes that you're referring to.

I need 14 top rails and 4 top caps for a 21’ round pool. We purchased the pool in 2005. It is an Outback Empire. The top cap part number you gave me is 1490487. Please confirm that this is the correct top cap, and please let me know what the top rail part number is. Do these come in 4 packs? Or only individually? I submitted more photos on 7/4/19 if you need to look those up too.


A  Answered on 7/9/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Kelly - Part number 1490487 is the correct cap for your pool. If your pool has a total of 14 top rails, the replacement is part number TL10033. We do not currently offer a 4-pack.

I am looking for the top caps, 1490487 showing out of stock. When will more be available or where could I find some??

A  Answered on 6/22/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Unfortunately, there is no concrete lead time on these as the manufacturer has been shut down due to the pandemic. We do not have access to other retailers and their inventory so we wouldn't honestly be able to advise of you of who may have these in stock however we have heard of other retailers running low on many above ground pool parts currently. 


Est. Repair Time

Less than 1 hr

Tools Needed

thin butterknife

Thin attachment clips break off too easily.

Took the old connector off by using a butter knife between the connector clip and the pool top shelf. When I tried to install the new replacement I slid the back end of the connector in place then tried to nudge the front. I tried to gently nudge the two front clips one at a time onto the metal shelf. I could only push slightly so I needed the butterknife to gently pry the clips one at a time onto the metal shelf. The clips are way too weak and flimsy. You need to exert a minor amount of pressure to affix the clips to the shelf but they just break off. Butterknife was better then screwdriver, as less preasure was needed.

Were these instructions helpful?
