Reattaching pool liner

I know about the heating the liner trick. This is a little more complicated because the liner has been pulled down so far.

We tried lifting the liner by clamping small blocks of wood to it, attaching the clamp to a 2x4, and then using the 2x4 as a lever and the edge of the pool as a fulcrum to lift it. We could only lift the liner enough to stuff in little bits at the edge, a half an inch at a time. Part of the problem was the edge of the pool overhangs just a bit, so lifting the liner also means pulling it away from the wall. And the lifting puts a lot of tension on the liner, making it all the harder to stuff the bead into the slot.

Other than draining the pool, and ideas?

Heating the liner allows it to stretch some. If you can't get get it to stretch then as far as I know you'll need to let out water. You can't possibly fight with all that weight.

that is too far to do without draining pool down. liner looks older and has shrunk and won't stretch much.
