Replacement Tail Clamp Assembly for Extang Solid Fold and Trifecta Tonneau Covers - Qty 1 - EX1035

Replaces the tail clamp assembly for your Extang Solid Fold, Solid Fold 2.0, or Trifecta tonneau cover. Includes 1 complete tail clamp assembly.


The replacement spring latch, P/N1035, is the exact replacement part. Unfortunately, these latches are mounted into the rail assemble during the Solid Fold 2.0 assembly. Once in place you cannot replace it without considerable time and expense. This assumes your cover is out of warranty as my 11 years old cover.
The photos below show an original clamp and a newly installed replacement clamp. The original has the rubber pad in place and the replacement does not.
To facilitate the install I determined that a portion of the rail must be removed. The clamp rides inside the rail on guides which after removing the retaining block became fully visible. I marked the width of the circular retainers on the clamp onto the rail and using a high speed Dremel tool cut the aluminum rail to a width and length that allowed the replacement spring clamp to be inserted. Once the retaining block was reattached it locked the clamp onto position.
This process removed about 0.5 inches length and 0.125 inch width from both sides of the aluminum rail. The replacement photo shows about 0.0825 inch (1/16) of the cutout remains uncovered but this gap doesn't interfere in operation or function of the spring latch.
This fix cost $10. My local Extang installer thought his tech would take 2 to 3 hours to disassemble the cover and install the new part. Cost estimate $250.
If you look close it's not pretty, but it works just fine.


I searched quite a while to find this part for my Gator soft cover for my 2017 Ford F150 with the 6.5 foot bed. I didn't want to have to spend a bunch of time on the phone with the Manufacturer trying to explain what I needed since they didn't have this part listed on their website. I did an internet for a "Gator soft cover hold down clamp" and this item from etrailer came up first. At first I disregarded it because no where on the site did they mention that it would replace my broken clamp. As I continued to research, I kept getting the part listed first in my searched. After a fair amount of time I finally looked closer at this part and discovered that it looked exactly like the part I needed. I decided to take a chance and order it hoping that it would work. It arrived seven days later and I found it to be an exact match for my broken part. Took me a short time to install the new one and it works great. I would suggest that etrailer add to their description that it will fit the Gator Soft covers that fit my vehicle at least. Thanks for having what I needed.


The replacement tail clamps are just great and fixed my problem with my tonneau cover. Shipping was fast. My whole experience has been great.


Excellent experience. Was able to navigate and source a broken clamp assembly for my tonneau cover. The on-line experience was professional. Extremely impressed on the quick fulfilment, email correspondence and tracking provided for a small dollar item. The order was also tracked by etrailer and I received a follow-up email confirming delivery (which was accurate). The part is correct for the tonneau. A very happy Canadian customer. Highly recommend.


it works great. it would be great if there was instructions on how to install it.

I still like the cover, it has held up well. one thing I had to do was replace both of the hold downs. they did not hold up and after tightening then they still came loose as I was going down the road.

Well since I'm already replacing this After 4 months of use It's obviously crap. The service and ordering process was great but the product itself is absolutely garbage discover the whole 9


Part was well packaged and delivered on time. Part was exactly as pictured and worked on my 2021 Toyota Tundra tonneau cover. I purchased the cover from Toyota and it was installed by the dealer. Another plus is the latch holds better in the slot than the original.


Part came quickly and was an exact replacement. Literally took one screw to replace and it was repaired.


Was told by a local supplier that they could get the item in three weeks. Ordered thru etrailer and received clamp assembly within a week. Easy to place order, quick delivery to secure mail box.


As advertised! Shipped to Calgary, AB, Canada promptly. Very happy with the tracking details. Overall great product and service.


Excellent response time.They never fail to deliver!


exactly what i needed. good price. fast cheap delivery!


This is a direct replacement on the Gator SFX Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover. Exactly the same part number too. Worked great and super easy to fit.


Working great just like the original


Exactly what I needed. Arrived in decent time even though it was cross border!


Good price, quick delivery on a not so easy to find part. Was a perfect fit!


This was exactly the part I required for my tonneau cover. The problem I encountered was installing it. There seems to be no way of inserting it into the tract without forcing it. I ended up breaking it unfortunately. However, if there is a way of installing it which I overlooked, this is the correct part.

For the SolidFold 2.0, there is a door at the end of the channel that can be removed, similar to the way a battery cover on a tv remote can be removed, and then the old clamp can be removed and the new one installed. For covers like the original Solid Fold and Trifecta that have a metal channel that span the width of the cover, an access spot will need to be opened up in the middle of the channel. Extang recommends covering a 6 inch section with masking tape and marking a 1 inch wide slot on both sides. Using something such as a dremel or tin snips, remove the marked section of the track edge to notch out an access point. With the section of track edge removed, the old clamp can be removed and the new one installed.

The part is the exact match for my Extang cover and I used it to replace the original tail clamp.


Replaced the Tail Clamp that broke off of my SolidFold on my 2013 Toyota Tundra (Item#EX1035). Exact replacement. No directions so you will need to remove the foam piece on the end of the track to get to the two small phillips screws that hold the clamp in place. Then you’ll need to break off the two long pieces attached to the rolling piece, I believe they are on there for shipping only and no instructions tell you to break them off but you have to. Then, I had to use a rubber mallet and a long flat head screwdriver to rock it into position slowly without stripping the clamp by placing the grooves of the roller under the track. First on the side without the extra cutout groove in the track then very slowly into the other side of the track in a slow rock back and forth until both sides are under the grooves of the track without stripping the groves. Lastly, reinstall the plate over the track with the screws, and reattach the foam cover with sticky adhesive.


Package arrived quickly, and in good condition. Clamps worked well and seem very solid, and price was great. very happy with the service!


My trip fold is 11 years old and still holding up very well. The only problem I have are the 2 spring loaded tie downs. I have now replaced both. I expect them to last another 10 years. etrailer has supplied both very quickly.

etrailer has provided everything I have requested quickly.


Simple ordering online. Shipped the next day. No instructions for installation but just a quick question to etrailor and got the info needed to replace the tail clamps.

After 1 year of using the latches 2 to 3 times a day at work latches are still working great
