Cover Valet is one of the most popular cover lifts available. Because the cover valet lifts the cover upright next to the spa, it is ideal for enclosed areas such as within a gazebo or up against a wall. The secondary advantage of this type of cover lifter is that you get a half-cover high privacy screen on the side of the spa where it stands up.

The Cover Valet is made from a coated metal frame and attaches right to the cabinet or even to the deck in the case of an inground spa installation. The cover valet operates with two shock absorbers to aid in lifting the cover. This is one of the cover lifter types that requires only about 6 inches of clearance from any obstruction on the side where the cover is to be stowed as it folds and rests above the spa water line.
