Central Tension System (CTS)

Katchakid pioneered and patented the initial Central Tensioning System (CTS) in 1988. The CTS today is a multifaceted system that uses a series of pulleys set in a circular fashion to open and close the tension ring of the net. The net can be adjusted from tight to very tight and is CTS – Central Tension System designed in such a way that most children under 12 years of age cannot remove it. The Katchakid uses an average of 12 to 16 pulleys per net. Larger pools, those over 43 feet, usually require two CTS systems allowing the Katchakid to be removed, replaced and tightened with relative ease.
