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.
