Plastica Domestic Slidelock Telescopic Reel System

A very high quality British-made reel system suitable for in-ground or above-ground pools with decking up to top rail level. 

Whatever size the swimming pool, winding a solar cover off can be hard work. Motorized systems are a great option but the high cost can be prohibitive, and the mechanics needed to make them work means they can often look large and cumbersome, not enhancing the look of a lovely swimming pool.

SmartGear was created to make these concerns a thing of the past. It is a simple, highly effective 3:1 ratio gearbox which makes light work of winding a cover onto a reel. It has been specifically designed to be retrofitted to the Plastica Slidelock reel, making it an affordable option.

Various fixing options for efficient and convenient cover removal.
