Fit just right but buy #4 screwsOct 11, 2012
By N. Caine
I bought a house with a spa with the locks but no keys. The two keys in this set fit perfectly so I didn't have to even install the clips, though it's nice to have them as a backup. I did, however, use the receptacles from this set to replace the weathered ones I had before, and again, all fit perfectly. The only caveats to know are two things: 1) It is a shame they don't include screws, because you must use #4 screws [which I found out by trial and error] which are the smallest-head screws they sell at the large depot near me. (I used #4 1-inch flat-heat screws.) Anything larger than this head size, and the clips will be blocked and it won't close. 2) The straps on the cover of my hot tub are SEWN to lock the clip into. It didn't bother me because I didn't need to install the top part of the clip that attaches to the strap, but you should know that there is no magic way to attach the clip on the top part short of threading the strap through the slip and then sewing it, at least on mine.

They WorkJun 20, 2013
By SJ Rabbit
I was hoping these were universal, since I didn't want to remove the male portions of the locks from my spa cover in order to replace the broken female parts. They are. They fit perfectly, and the key gives an added layer of security when small children are near the spa. A good purchase.

Worked fine with a few issuesMay 08, 2014
By James R. Muller
The holsters for the snaps require three screws each. The set of parts only came with eight screws so save your old screws plus any other parts that are salvageable for future use. Plastic parts don't last long under extreme heat and cold conditions.
The snap on prongs that attach to the strap are a pain to install. You can remove all of the stitching to insert the strap thru the slot on the prongs and resew them but I would not recommend this. I cut a diagonal opening a little off center on the top part of the slot to slide the strap loop into. This of course weakens the slot but I slopped some super glue on it when I was done. I used a hack saw to make the cut because this leaves a wider opening to slide the strap thru. I used needle nose pliers to spread the opening apart and to pull the strap into the slot. I suppose they have to be installed this way or the locking feature wouldn't work. It was cheaper than buying a new cover for four hundred bucks!
Works great but had to cut back to installApr 17, 2014

Quick and easy replacement for broken locks! Worked perfectly. Only thing that would have been nice is if they were pretty split to install. Only took a few seconds to snip the back with some cutters but since everyone is doing that, why not make them accordingly?
