An incredibly innovative product, the SmartGear 3:1 ratio gearbox has also been designed to be retro-fitted onto Plastica’s Slidelock reel and it makes light work of winding heavy solar covers onto a reel.

Smartgear Gearbox

Neat, compact and maintenance free,

SmartGear costs a lot less than a new reel and does the job of an electric reel. Essentially, it is easy to both install and use and is made from high quality materials that are self-lubricating and corrosion resistant.

It also makes winding a pool cover onto a reel remarkably easy and it does not matter whether you are a child or a grandparent – you are guaranteed to find it incredibly easy and light to use.

We are confident that once you have tried our SmartGear 3:1 ratio gearbox you will never go back to anything else and with its fantastic reliability and corrosion resistance, you will probably never have to.

If you have a Plastica Slidelock Reel that still has years of use left in it but  you are finding it harder and harder to wind a cover off the pool, then SmartGear really is a very cost-effective answer.  Easily retro-fitted, it comes with all necessary fixings and instructions.  It can also be taken off the old reel and fitted onto a new one.

It can also be retro-fitted to our Monaco Deluxe or Monaco Standard Reels




All prices include VAT.

Please note:  SmartGear is not suitable for any other make of reel and there is a difference in the boss used for the Slidelock and the Monaco so please specify for which type of reel it is required for.
