These models allow the open cover to rest lower against the spa for a slightly less-obstructed view.
Depending on the mounting system, the CoverMate II can be screw-mounted low on the spa, or simply slid underneath for spas with weaker skirts using the optional Understyle bracket system (sold separately).

CoverMate II Installation Instructions
Step #1 – Position the spa cover (in closed position) on the spa, making sure that all four corners are properly positioned and square on the spa.
Step #2 – Using the #10 X 1” screws, attach the left and right Mounting Brackets to the appropriate sides of the spa.
Caution: To prevent splitting of wood cabinet, pre-drill holes with a 1/16” drill bit.
Step #3 – Connect the Pivot Arms to the Mounting Brackets. After Pivot Arms are connected tilt them back into the upright position.
Step #4 – Insert the long end of the Support Arms into the center Coupler Piece. Then slide Support Arms into the Pivot Arms.
Note: The Upper Support Arm is the longer of the two Support Arms.
Next, insert the Lower Support Arms into the other Coupler Piece, then slide the Lower Support Arms into the remaining end of the Pivot Arms.
Step #5 – Lay the Covermate on the spa cover. Adjust and center the upper Coupler Piece and Support Arms so that the Coupler Piece is lying parallel to the spa cover’s hinge about a 1/2” away.
Using the #10 self tapping screws, fasten Support Arms to Pivot Arms and the Coupler Piece. Note: Be sure to rotate the Coupler Piece so that the inserted screws are at a horizontal angle with heads facing the back of the spa.
Repeat this procedure for the Lower Support Arms.
Step #6 – Slip the black hand grips to the edge of the spa cover and snap black plastic screw head covers on.
Step #7 – Attach the provided 3 hook TowelMate on the preferred side of your Covermate, by simply snapping it into place and inserting the middle self tapping screw. (See Fig. 5)
