Swimming pool cover with adjustable side gores

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4464801.

A novel swimming pool cover apparatus and method which utilizes adjustable side gores to eliminate undue tension in the swimming pool cover material. The apparatus includes a flexible, generally rectangular swimming pool cover sheet having beaded side edges and which is pre-cut with oversized side gores adjacent the leading edge thereof. The beaded side edges of the swimming pool cover sheet are slidably received into channels which are formed in parallel track members mounted on the pool deck adjacent to opposite sides of the swimming pool. The leading edge of the swimming pool cover is also provided with a beaded edge and is supported by a rigid carrier member having an open channel formed along the rearward side thereof. The bead of the leading edge of the cover sheet is slidably received into the channel formed in the rigid carrier member, and the carrier member is suspended at each end by respective wheel assemblies.
