Hot Spring Cover Lifters

In our lineup of over 2700 genuine Hot Spring spa parts are all five designs of the Hot Spring brand of cover lifters. Some of these cover lifters or Retractable Cover Systems (RCS) are designed to attach to the spa and also to the Hot Spring cover. In 1996, all Hot Spring spa covers (Watkins) were equipped with hidden steel inserts embedded into the insulated foam cores. These inserts enabled some styles of Hot Spring cover lifters to attach directly into the edge of their spa covers. Mega beefy design!

Follow these steps to select the right lifter for you.

Uprite Cover Lifter (7" Clearance)

More Info  

The Uprite® Lifter is a favorite for close clearance needs. If your spa needs to be nudged up close to the house, fence or gazebo then this lifter is ideal. The Uprite® (sometimes spelled upright) only requires seven inches (7") of rear clearance to accommodate it. The Uprite® is the first choice if your spa rests in a vault application (recessed), since this lifter doesn’t fold down behind the spa. Click on the picture or "More Info" button for details.
