The UltraGroove is a retractable hard tonneau cover with integrated T-slots in the rails that allow you to add a roof rack or ladder rack to your vehicle. This enables you to carry kayaks, bikes, and other sports and recreation gear while leaving your bed free for more items. The cover's stylish ArmorTek construction consists of a vinyl fabric top sheet that is bonded to rigid aluminum panels, combining the seamless appearance of a soft tonneau with the security features of a hard tonneau. The enhanced weather seals ensure your gear stays clean and dry.

Retractable Cover with Built-In Pull Strap

UltraGroove operation

The UltraGroove retracts with one turn of a handle. The handle - located underneath the rear plate of the cover - activates a heavy-duty tension spring. This spring automatically retracts the cover into the canister at the bulkhead of your truck bed. A built-in pull strap helps you extend the cover over your bed. As you pull, the handle will unlock and the cover will engage the side rails at 12" intervals.

UltraGroove halfway open

You can stop the cover at these designated intervals if you need to carry tall or long items that overlap your tailgate while still covering cargo, such as a toolbox, stored closer to the bulkhead of the truck. You can also use the rear plate of the tonneau cover to pull it closed.

Side Rails with T-Slots

UltraGroove Hauling Versatility

The tonneau cover's side rails include integrated T-slots that allow you to mount accessories directly to the cover. This Rail Expansion System (RES) runs the length of the side rails so you can positon your accessories - such as a ladder rack or roof rack - to accommodate different-size loads. This enables you to haul sports and recreation gear above your bed without interfering with the operation of the cover. The rails are also compatible with Pace Edwards EL200 ladder rack (sold separately).

UltraGroove T-slots in rails

These rails have rounded sides and curved endcaps that are sleeker and more streamlined when compared with other slotted tonneau cover side rails.

Angled Canister

UltraGroove canister with drain tube

The cover retracts into a compact, angled canister located at the front of your truck bed. This canister protects the retracted cover from the elements, and with the cover stored in the canister you'll have unrestricted visibility out of your rear window. The angled design of the canister also allows for maximum useable cargo space in your truck bed.

Enhanced Cargo Protection

Drain tube near tailgate

The UltraGroove provides more protection from water and debris than many other covers on the market. Its rails feature a water management system that channels excess water into the canister. This prevents water from getting into your bed or freezing in your tonneau cover rails during cold temperatures. Drain tubes attached to the bottom of the canister remove water through the OE drain holes in the floor of your truck bed. Additional drain tubes at the end of the side rails also channel water out through existing drain holes in your truck bed side walls.

UltraGroove rail cap

The cover side rails have rubber seals on the outside that conform to your truck bed rail caps and keep dirt and water out of your bed. The rails have seals on the inside to create another barrier that protects your cargo from water and dust. There are also endcaps that seal over the top edge of your tailgate to prevent leaking at the corners. Lastly, a large seal at the rear of the bed closes the gap between the cover and your tailgate to shield your cargo from runoff water.

Low-Profile Design

Low Profile tonneau cover

The curved side rails and endcaps sit approximately 1" above the truck bed rails for a low-profile look. This sleek design is aerodynamic to reduce wind drag, and it helps to improve gas mileage when cover is closed.

Stylish and Heavy-Duty Construction

Stylish and heavy-duty construction

The UltraGroove deck is constructed of a vinyl top layer bonded to heavy-duty aluminum slats. This ArmorTek deck looks like a soft tonneau cover with no visible seams, but has the strength and security of a hard tonneau cover. The rails are constructed of extruded aluminum with a black powder coat finish.


The UltraGroove provides excellent protection for your cargo when used in conjunction with a closed and locked tailgate. Both the handle and pull strap are located underneath the rear plate, which makes them inaccessible when your truck bed is closed. The durable aluminum panels are better at preventing theft when compared with soft covers that can be cut or punctured with a knife. The panels are also more effective at preventing theft than a tri-fold hard tonneau cover because the panels cannot be pried open at any point along the rails.

No-Drill Installation

To install the cover, set the canister in your truck bed and support it with a box or other sturdy object. Slide the cover side rails into the canister until they are fully seated in the rail grips while also threading the cover into the channels in the rails. Secure the rails to the canister with bolts and washers.

UltraGroove installation kickstand

Attach the rails to the canister, then secure the rails to your truck's bed rails using 2 clamps per side. Slide the clamp onto the rail, flip the pivot arm up so it is under the bed rail lip, and tighten the clamp in place. Shims are included for trucks with tapered beds.

Each clamp at the tailgate end of the rails has a supplemental kickstand to help level the rails and prevent overtightening during installation. To install the kickstand, simply slide it into the grip handle at the bottom of the clamp. Rotate the kickstand so the foot rests squarely against the side wall of the truck bed, and tighten in place.

Mount the top cover plate to the canister with the included hardware. Install 2 drain tubes to the rear of the rails and 2 drain tubes to the canister. Route each tube out of the OEM drain holes in your truck bed.

To hold the pull strap off the floor of your truck bed, apply the adhesive hook-and-loop fastener strip onto the underside of a rail at your desired location.

2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

This is my second Pace Edwards UltraGroove, I really love it. I traded in my last truck and this topper was on it and still ran smooth after three years of opening and closing it thousands of times!

2020 GMC Sierra 1500

The installation instructions could be improved! They leave alot out! You discover that after yu have done other steps to install. Need more detail. I have been doing stuff simular for 50 years and found they left out important steps!


This cover fit my truck bed to a T with nicely sized rubber seals along the edges. The UltraGroove allowed me to install a Yakima rack system that is the most sturdy of any racks I have owned in 20 years for my kayaks. All in all I couldn't be happier with this tonneau cover.

2021 GMC Sierra 1500



Took my time installing it. For the most part no problems. I see some concerns around the tailgate. (Sealing) I like the ease of retracting and opening it. With tailgate locked, its very easy to open with a flat putty knife. Overall I Like the appearance and the way its constructed. Only had it a few days so time will tell.


I am very happy with this cover now that I have it installed. The cover is great, the directions not so much. Thankfully Brittany from etrailer sent links to some videos which helped tremendously with the installation. I did have difficulty with one side locking when fully closed and could not find any trouble shooting information in the directions or videos but did find a set screw that allowed me to adjust the stop and everything works quite well now. I love that the cover retracts smoothly and latches securely while still allowing for a ladder rack. Nice fit and finish.


The cover is fine, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. However, I ordered through etrailer because the listing stated that it would ship on dec 15. On Dec 18 when I called. I was told that it would ship on Dec 25, then before hanging up it was Dec 26. Yeah, it shipped on Dec 31. I didn’t get a phone call, text or email informing of any of these delays. (But, I did get an email asking for this review, on the day that the cover arrived).


Really like this Edwards Ultra Grove Tonneau cover. Does everything I wanted it to do. Keeps my cargo dry, fairly secure, it wouldn’t be easy to break into. I installed it by myself self in about an hour. etrailer Installation video made install easy.


I really like this cover after owning it for a year. Adam was a big help when I bought it and works very well and has ultra low profile which I like. I like the way it can snap into place and not only full open or close. Installation was pretty easy. We own a fifth wheel and this cover works excellent for our needs.


I have owned 2 of these covers. Had one on my 2500 that my wife and I liked so put one on my new 3500. I like the convience of being able to open/close the cover with little effort. There is no exposed lock that can be hacked/picked so the only way in is either destroy the metal cover or tailgate. I have been very happy with it and will have one on my next truck.


Received the Pace Edwards UltraGroove Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover in a box that was destroyed! The contents made it okay, except I did not receive the truck bed stake hole covers. I'm sure etrailer will make good on it as they have great customer service! However this review is for the cover and although the cover seems okay....the instructions totally suck! For $[XXXX] dollars, I expect more!


Great products,great prices,fast service,have not installed yet but checked out their video,good tips,looks like a quality tonneau cover


Still very happy almost a year after installing it on my 2020 F350 long bed. Every time I watch other people fiddle and diddle with their roll-up or fold-up tonneau covers, I know I made the right decision. It retracts nicely into the canister at the front of the bed, and easily pulls back as far as I need it to go. I tow a 5th wheel RV, and can pull the cover right up to the 5th wheel hitch, keeping some of the cargo under cover. The drain tubes work pretty well, keeping the bed dry, although the front 2 drain tubes periodically clog up with dirt and debris. It's a minor issue that's not difficult to deal with. I would buy this cover again should the need arise.


I’ve had my PE Ultra Groove hard tonneau cover on my 2019 RAM 1500 Bighorn for a year now and I’m very pleased with it. My biggest concern when I bought it was if it would be water tight. I’m happy to report that after a few heavy rain storms and several tripe through the car wash it hasn’t leaked at all. Far superior to the BackFlip cover I had previously.
It is very low maintenance as the only thing I need to do periodically is lube the track with 303 vinyl dressing so it retracts easily. It does “flutter” a bit at freeway speed but it doesn’t appear to be at all problematic.


It's a well built tonneau cover. It was very difficult to install, but I got it done. It operates good and looks good. The only drawback, is it leaks water bad. In the spring, I'll silicone around the front two drain lines at the roller box, and on the top rear roller box cover plate. Hope it helps.


This is the first tonneau cover I have had, and it is working great. It was relatively easy to install, and has worked well for us.


Very nice Tonneau cover once installed. The paper instruction manual is though to understand. Good thing I found an installation video that was a great help.



This is the second time I have ordered products from etrailer and could not be more satisfied. Fast shipping and it arrived well packaged and complete.


Absolutely love this product!


Great product, speedy delivery great follow up


Fit great easy install. Quick delivery couldn’t ask for more

  • Pace Edwards 311-KRCA27A58. What Is The Weight Capacity Of This Cover?
    Great question. I just spoke with my contact at Pace Edwards and we went over this. The top of the Pace Edwards UltraGroove Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover # 311-KRCA27A58 is not rated for weight. This is mainly to prevent people from attempting to use it as a work surface and put a ladder on it to reach a higher spot. Most of the cover’s capacity to hold weight relies on the cover being properly installed. Even so, we do not recommend using the top of the cover to hold weight. Small items...

  • Will The BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK52FR Interfere With Bed Camera On 2024 GMC Sierra 1500?
    I do see the BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK52FR you found is for a short CarbonPro bed on your 2024 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. This will interfere with the 3rd brake light bed camera on your truck.

  • Recommended Ladder Rack for 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation With Pace Edwards UltraGroove
    Hi Patrick; it looks like you already got the Pace Edwards UltraGroove # 311-KRCA27A58. For a ladder rack to pair with it I recommend the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack w/ Tonneau Cover Adapters # Y01151-5855. This will fit in the T-slot rails on your tonneau cover so you can position the uprights wherever you need them. The rack has a simple installation with a height adjustment of 19" - 30" above truck bed rails and an on-road capacity of 300 lbs.

  • 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Tonneau Cover to Fit with Yakima OverHaul HD Ladder Rack
    The Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack w/ Tonneau Cover Adapters # Y01151-5855 will only fit if your 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 has a tonneau cover with T-Slots in the rails. Since all of the folding covers have standard rails we'll need to get your truck equipped with a retractable cover instead. And for that I recommend the Pace Edwards UltraGroove: - 5-3/4' Bed # 311-KRCA27A58 - 6-1/2' Bed # PE97UV - 8' Bed # PE32CV
