The Bedlocker retractable tonneau cover protects your cargo and truck bed from the elements. This electric cover opens and closes easily with a key fob remote, and it can stop and lock anywhere along the bed to provide custom protection for your cargo. Heavy-duty aluminum panels with weather-resistant silicon hinges keep water and debris out of your truck bed, and they help to protect your cargo from theft. The low-profile cover also installs easily without drilling.

Retractable with Remote

Bedlocker truck bed cover

This electric, retractable tonneau cover is powered by a motor that wires directly to your vehicle's battery. The included key fob remote activates the motor and allows you to open or close the cover in under 30 seconds. An electro-magnetic brake stops and locks the cover at any point along the rails for customized cargo protection. Press the Open button on the remote to retract the cover into the canister. Simply release the button to trigger the electro-magnetic brake and lock the cover in at the desired position. Press the Closed button to deploy the cover. There is an optional manual switch available (sold separately) that allows you to operate the cover from the cab of your truck or at the tailgate.

A manual release is located on the canister in case of remote control or power failure. Simply pull out the manual release lever, and engage the kickstand behind it. This allows you to deploy and retract the cover by hand until power is restored to your vehicle.

Angled Canister

Bedlocker Angled Canister

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 clearance for your tools and cargo so there is no need to remove the cover to haul cargo.

Water Management System

The Bedlocker 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.

Flush-Mount Design

The Bedlocker side rails mount level with your truck bed rails for a flush appearance. This flush-mount design is aerodynamic to reduce wind drag, and it helps to improve gas mileage when cover is closed. Even with the flush-mount design, the cover fits over most fifth-wheel trailer hitches. Note: The highest point of the fifth-wheel hitch must be at least 2" below the bed rails.

Heavy-Duty Construction

Bedlocker aluminum panels

The cover is constructed of interlocking aluminum panels with a matte black powder coat finish. A silicon weather hinge creates a tight seal between each panel to prevent water and dirt from entering the truck bed. A barrier seal at the tailgate prevents water from entering truck bed through the rear. The rails are constructed of extruded aluminum with a black powder coat finish.


The Bedlocker provides excellent protection for your cargo when used in conjunction with a closed and locked tailgate. 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 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, place the canister on a support at the bulkhead of the truck. Run the wiring harness from the canister to your vehicle's battery. Do not connect the harness to your battery until the rest of the installation is complete.

Bedlocker aluminum panels

Attach the rails to the canister, then secure the rails to your truck bed side 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.

Bedlocker SpeedClamp

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. Once the kickstands are installed, attach the drain tubes to the canister and route each tube out of the OEM drain holes in the floor of your bed. Complete the installation by mounting the top cover plate over the canister and connecting the wiring harness to the battery.

Video Transcript for Pace Edwards Bedlocker Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover Review

Ryan: Hey, everybody. My name's Ryan, and here at etrailer, we install, test fit, and review a lot of different parts. That way we could try to answer any questions those of you might have. And that's exactly what we're doing here today. We're going to be taking a look at the Pace Edwards Bedlocker retractable tonneau cover.The Bedlocker tonneau covers are custom fit for your truck, so you want to use our fit guide to ensure you're getting the right fit for you. Using a tonneau cover is a great way to not only keep the weather out of the bed of your truck, but it's also going to keep anything inside protected.

I know a lot of guys have tools and material back here that they want to keep protected and secure. Since this is an aluminum type cover, it's really secure. You're going to have a really hard time getting in through this cover. So used in conjunction with the locking tailgate, you're not going to have anything to worry about. All your stuff inside the bed is going to be locked up nice and tight.

So that way when you get off work, you're not going to have to sweat trying to grab your tools or anything else out, bring it in the house and deal with all that. So you can kind of rest peacefully there.Another big thing is how the tonneau cover is going to look and actually function. Honestly, this one is top-notch in my opinion. It is more or less a flush mount design, so you're not going to see it sticking up over the side of your bed and drawing a whole lot of attention to it. And even better is whenever you're driving, you're not going to have anything blocking or obstructing your view as you're going down the road.So with everything all closed up, we know it looks great and everything, but honestly, I think the coolest thing about the setup is the fact that it is electric.

So whenever you're ready to open it up or close it back up, all you're going to have to do is push a button. I don't know if you've messed with other tonneau covers before. Some of them can kind of be a pain where you're dealing with the straps and hooks and everything else trying to open and close it. It's not really all that much fun.This one's super easy. It gives us two remotes.

So it's actually wireless. So you can throw one on your key ring and whenever you're ready to open it up, you simply just push open. So you push a button once, it'll open, and what's neat is it actually has a brake. So let's say, for example, you only wanted to open it halfway, to maybe put whatever it is you might be putting in back there. You'd simply hit the button again and it will stop it. So, pretty cool little feature there. I bet it would come in handy if I had to guess. If you need full bed access, not a big deal either. You just continue to open it. It will stop on its own whenever you're opening it and closing it, so you don't have to worry about anything like that. And as you can see, even with it fully open, we pretty much have complete bed access. We're going to lose a little bit of space up front there, but in my opinion, the trade-off is well worth it.Now, something I was kind of curious about myself, and I'm sure some of you are as well, is how fast the tonneau cover's going to open and close. Does it take forever So I figured we'd do an experiment and time it. So I'll go ahead and hit close and start. And it's a lot faster than I would think it would be. Honestly, it's a lot quieter too. You don't hear this making a ton of noise, which is always nice. If you can keep things a little quiet, perfect. So it looks like we're getting pretty close, so right there, stop. So just about 20 seconds, roughly. To completely close it, that's pretty good. It's probably going to take you more time than that to do one manually. So compared to that, I'd say you have a little bit of advantage here at least a time savings.Just to give you an idea on how flush this actually is, we've got a pretty good view of it right here, and it pretty much just shoots straight across. As far as the rails here on top of your actual bed rails, I mean, it comes up just a hair. If I had to guess maybe about an eighth of an inch. You can just about get your fingernail underneath there and that's it. So about as tight as you can get it and as clean as you can, in my opinion.For those of you that are wondering how much space up here we're going to lose exactly, figured I'd just take a quick measurement so we can figure that out. If we just go from the front of the cover there back to the seal, it's going to be right at about 14 inches. So honestly, not really a huge deal. Still have plenty of bed space to work with.But keep in mind the canister isn't going to come all the way down to the very bottom of the bed, like a toolbox or something would, for example. We're still going to have a decent amount of space here. So maybe if you had some lumber or something like that, you could still slide it underneath there without any issues.I have seen a lot of different types of tonneau covers, and to be honest, this one is probably the best fitting. What I mean by that is how tight and sealed everything is. But if there's a will, there is a way, and to be honest, over time, water moisture could potentially seep through those seals and accumulate in your canister. And if that does end up happening, not really a huge deal. There's a drain on each side that'll allow that to run down and out underneath the truck. That way nothing's puddling up in there. You're not going to have to worry about anything rusting out. So inside, you can be confident that it's going to be nice and dry and stay in good working order. And that's really important, considering too that there's an electrical motor in there that needs to stay dry to function for years to come.So at the end of the day, this tonneau cover really does check all the boxes for me, at least in my opinion. The ease of use and how well it works is top-notch. The appearance of it, whether you have it open or closed, it looks awesome. No one's really going to be able to notice it. It almost looks factory, honestly. And even just down to the fit and finish, this fits really well, and that's not something you really see with a lot of different tonneau covers. A lot of them kind of fight you a little bit and just aren't exactly the way you want. I did not have that issue at all with this cover. Even just down to the little things, all the hardware it comes with, the clamps, everything is top notch, and it's a tonneau cover you won't be disappointed in.

Excellent, as always!

I was looking
for the very best for my 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500HD High Country and when you want the best, you get Pace Edwards. I've owned other brands before on other trucks such as Roll-n-Lock and ReTrax and both are great products, but for this truck, I wanted nothing but the best. With the track record and quality that comes with Pace Edwards, this is why they are the top of the line. I installed this cover completely by myself, a helper would have been nice to have, I was able to get it done with no issues.

The cover fits perfectly and looks like it was supposed to be there. etrailer's customer support is always top notch and the representative I spoke with on the phone made it so easy to order, she was very friendly and helpful. Everything came well packaged and undamaged. The 2 included remotes are nice, but I also ordered to sets of the accessory wired switch kit. I wired them together, sending 1 switch up front, inside the cab. The other to the back corner of the bed wired up to a weatherproof switch. I spent more time on the wiring than I did installing the cover.

The only thing that kinda bugs me (and this is 100% personal preference NOT an issue with the product) is the tailgate seal at the edge of the cover, the shape and design of the seal is such that it's a double wall flap with a hollow center. Now they may have intended it to sit on top of the edge of the tailgate, but I prefer how it looks butted up against the tailgate like a door seal, which makes a U shape. However I have to keep pushing it down to keep it flat across the back. I may end up sliding a small round piece of weatherproof foam inside, all the way across to create more of an bicycle tire affect, the foam keeps the seal "inflated" while pressure holds it tight when closed up. But that's just me.

Overall, VERY pleased with the products and service. The cover and wiring harness are both high quality, comparable to GM factory. I highly recommend this, well worth the money.


looks and works great!!! easy install fit my 2024 gmc sierra 3500hd denali perfectly


I love this tonneau. I would reccomed going with this model, but getting the tracks that support their racks. It was Covid time and stock was short. I was lucky to get this one. I would go with 4.5. I think they should have put a more powerful motor. Sometimes it doesn't have the power to open all the way. On another note etrailer was awesome. The rails were bent when the shipment came, they took rails out of there last one in stock and sent them so I could get it installed before my cross country trip.


My last truck had the Pace Edwards Bedlocker, so when I got a newer truck I had to get another Bedlocker. Great security. Electric opening without a key. To someone wanting to break into the bed there’s no apparent way to open it.


Great tonneau cover. One year later and still functions like new.


The remote doesn’t always work. Sometimes you have to jar or push in the cover to get it to engage.


Real good all in all. Does rub in the holding box whenever it’s all the way rolled in. Minor, but rubs.


great product. exactly what i expected and easier than imagined to install.


Great product, easy install no more removing tools every night!


After getting all of the parts I can put it in now
