Just flop one half of cover over, then pull on cover handles until it slides down and rests on the lift.
That would be a questions best answered by whoever manages your warranty! I’m not sure
Our hot tub is 74 x 74. The lift will go wider if needed. We love this cover. lift. It is light weight and easy to use and so far is holding up well. You need 5" on each side for the bar to stand out from the spa. When it is thrown back with the lid on it you will need a space of 9-10-" for the entire width. Our tub has a wide bottom below the plastic sides. We attached the bar to the base as we were concerned that the plastic sides would not hold up to the pull of the bars. We recommend this bar lift!
Yes, but it's much easier with two people.
It should as it is adjustable for the width.
Yes, very easy to install
Just measured ours. It takes a 15" space to throw it backwards but 13" when it is hanging down. This is the cover that came with the spa. The lift is a wonderful asset and very sturdy and durable.
Yes it's adjustable
No it doesn’t touch the ground it is self supported by operation bracket. Very nice and handy system.
No it seems to be made for a square spa. Mine is square but has rounded corners and unfortunately it could not be installed, will return mine.
