Once you purchase your new hot tub we have several different styles of cover lifter for our hot tubs and spas on offer. The easiest to install and least expensive is the cover shelf. It doesn't even require mounting to the cabinet of the hot tub, simply slide the base under the spa when empty. It uses the weight of the water and hot tub to secure the supports in place. Then your folded hot tub cover slides out onto the support bars, creating a handy shelf for your towels or drinks.
