The original Access tonneau has premium features at an economical price. This truck bed cover rolls up so that you can haul bulky items and rolls down to shield and secure your vehicle's bed and cargo. The custom-fit tonneau sits 1-1/2" above your truck bed and keeps air from getting caught by the tailgate, thus reducing drag. That can improve your gas mileage by up to 10 percent. And the exclusive Access Slantback fit angles toward your tailgate to give your truck a stylish, streamlined look.


Rolled Access Original tonneau cover with straps

Velcro closures on the sides help seal the cover to your truck box and allow you to peel it back quickly for easy access. The tonneau stores neatly behind your cab, secured by premium storage straps that are designed to keep the cover from rubbing against the cab.


The cover is constructed of double coated, reinforced UV-blocking vinyl, so it won't fade in the hot sun. The material stays flexible down to -40 F and won't shrink, regardless of the temperature. Black powder coated aluminum bows line the underside of the tonneau and act as ribbing that supports the cover and makes it easy to roll up.


XT Dial and Seal for Access Original tonneau cover

Customize the cover tension by turning the XT-Dial easy-grip tension adjuster at the front of the cover, near your cab. The Element weather seal at the cab end and a reinforced vinyl flap at the tailgate help to keep out dirt, rain, snow, and ice.


Tite Bite clamp for Access Original tonneau cover

The contoured, black powder coated aluminum tonneau rails resist rust. They sit inside your truck bed side rails so that you can still use stake-pocket-mounted accessories, such as a ladder rack or tie-down anchors. Easily install the rails on a truck with an under-the-rail, drop-in bed liner. Over-the-rail liners can be cut to allow room for the installation clamps. The tonneau's rails attach easily to your truck bed side rails using Tight Bite clamps. The specially designed teeth on these clamps seize the integrated ridges in the rails, ensuring a firm grip.


Auto Latch II for Access Original tonneau cover

Once the tonneau cover is unrolled and in place, the AutoLatch II dual locking system automatically engages 2 locks - 1 on each side - to hold the tonneau closed. And locking the cover won't interfere with your tailgate - open and close it as usual or add a tailgate lock (sold separately) to get secure storage for your cargo. To unlatch the cover, simply pull the cord for easy, one-hand operation. Cover your assets with this tonneau from Access.

Video Transcript for Access Original Soft Roll Up Tonneau Cover Review

Hi there truck owners. Today, we're going to be taking a look at Access's line of their original soft roll up tonneau cover. You'll want to use our fit guide to determine the appropriate tonneau cover for your truck as they come in various sizes with different mounting kits to ensure that they're custom fit for your vehicle. This cover's not only going to look great on your truck, but it's also going to help protect it from the elements by keeping any moisture out and keeping your items dry, as well as help protect those things from theft, because you're going to be keeping it out of sight. And if you have a locking tailgate, your tailgate's still fully functional while it's closed. And if you lock it, it keeps everything secure inside.

If you're tailgate's not locking, we have tailgate locks available here at etrailer.com so you can get the most security out of your truck.And your new sleek look. It's also going to be more aerodynamic, which is going to help reduce wind noise inside the vehicle. And it can also help improve fuel economy because you're not getting as much wind drag. And to ensure the look of your tonneau cover is going to last a long time, Access has provided it with a UV resistant coating, and it's a vinyl compound that your cover is constructed of. That's going to ensure that it doesn't fade over time out in the sun, as well as get dry and cracked like other materials can.Your tonneau cover is going to sit about an inch and a half above your bed rails on your truck.

But what I like about this tonneau cover is that it installs on the inside of your truck's side rails. That's nice because it keeps everything confined on the inside, but still leaves you to have full access of any accessories you want to use on your truck's side rails, such as your stake pockets. So you could even potentially put a ladder rack on this and use it with this tonneau cover. And we've got some stake pocket mounted ladder racks here at etrailer.com, so you can pick out the best one to match your truck.And compared to some of the other soft roll up tonneau covers out there, one of my favorite features on this one is how well it latches and stays secure to the back of the truck. Some of the other competitors only latch on one side.

So it might be nice and stiff on this side, but over on the other side, it's going to flop around a little bit. Ours latches on each side, thanks to Access's Auto-Latch II patented design. And down here on the bottom, we have cords located on each side and we can open our tonneau cover with just one hand. From either side, you can pull down on the cord and then you just simply push up and then we can just roll it up. And what's nice about these is we have support beams going across to provide support to ensure our tonneau cover stays nice and taut.

And if we've got some smaller, lighter items, we can set those on top while we're getting access to the back.All of our metal components are going to be made of aluminum. That includes our side rails as well as our crossbars. And they'll be protected with a black powder coat finish. And what I like about this design too, with the hook and loop, it keeps it nice and sealed and in place when it's closed, but when you're opening it, you can open it to just a specific amount. And with that, we can roll it back to however much we need to gain access to our truck and we can leave it there. And we can even drive with it like this. Now it can potentially unroll, but if you have some items you want to protect from the elements here in the front, and maybe you've got a large box or something that's just a little too tall to fit in the back, we can just put that in here and this is going to hit the box, so it's not going to be able to unroll. And the hook and loops keep it nice and taut and in place from the rolled up spot forward.We can also roll our cover all the way up to gain full truck bed access. Located inside, we have clips that we can bring around to hold our cover in this position. And there's one located on each side. And unlike some of your hard tonneau covers out there, with this particular design, we get full truck bed access while also having full rear window access. Many of those hard covers to gain full truck bed access, they have to fold up here at the rear, so it's hard to see when backing up.Now, when you first install your cover, one of the things you're going to notice it is very tight and it may seem a little bit difficult to close. Well, you do have the option to adjust the amount of tension on your cover using the tensioners here at the front. The knobs just simply turn. They're very easy and smooth and there's no tools required. We've got one on each side. So when you adjust those, you want to try to adjust those evenly. But if you are just putting one on and it is tight and you can close it, even though it might be a little difficult, I recommend leaving it because over time the fabric will stretch a little bit. The best thing to do usually is to just park it out in the sun and let it sit on a nice warm day and that'll help it form to your truck and it'll be much easier to operate. And if over time it stretches even further and gets a little bit loose, we have these tensioners here to ensure that we can always keep the proper tension on them. \This is just going to help extend the life of our cover, because we're going to keep out any slack and flapping around and things to ensure that it keeps its shape.And now with our tonneau cover rolled up, you can see some of the seals that we've got that keeps our truck bed completely sealed off all the way around. We've got them here at the back where our tailgate shuts to ensure that it prevents any moisture from entering here. And our tailgate also fits underneath the tonneau cover when it's rolled up, so all the water's just going to roll off the back. We've got similar seals underneath the bulkhead here in the front. Once you've got it installed, they're very difficult to see, but they're going to prevent any moisture from entering in here at the front. You can get a little bit better look at the seal that runs across the bulkhead if we come in from the bottom here. Kind of poke the little soft rubber seal.Our side rails are held in place using Access's tight bite clamps. And these have grooved surfaces running along the rails. And we've also got teeth on the tight bite clamps that interlock into those grooves to ensure that it holds it in place, so it can't move up or down or slide back and forth.When it comes to the installation of this cover, it's actually pretty quick and easy and I really like that it's a no drill installation. Depending on your truck, your side rails may be slightly different. On this older truck here, we don't actually have a way to wrap around. Whereas many of your modern trucks wrap around the side rails for them to clamp. The hardware that comes included with our cover is going to be matched for your truck to ensure that your cover is the right size for your truck and that your hardware is going to install without having to perform any modifications.Now, there are a few different styles of tonneau covers out there. This is a soft roll-up cover, which provides a great look and a lot of ease of use. And you also get full truck bed access because you can roll it completely up and still be able to see out the back. But some of the competitors that we have offer hard covers, and that's going to be better if you need more security. With this one here, you could easily break into this cover if they have a knife or you could even just try to take a key and stab through this cover. Now having a cover on it is definitely going to help deter theft because it takes time to break in and to steal some items. And there's evidence left behind that somebody was there. So it's definitely going to help deter it, but having a hard cover is going to further make those thieves have a difficult time accessing your gear.Now, if you like the look of this cover and the way that it rolls up and having full truck bed access, then I would recommend Retrax's hard roll up tonneau cover. Those ones offer mostly full truck bed access. They have a canister that's located at the top, but it's fairly small and it rolls up almost kind of like a roll up windup garage door. It just kind of slides in and it rolls around a cylinder inside the canister and keeps it nice and concealed. These are nice because you can set them in multiple spots, just like this cover, but you have a stiff top that you could set more weight on and it's much more difficult to break into.And there are also tri fold hard tonneau covers, such as BAKFlip's MX, which has three separate panels that are hard panels and you get three different positionings. You have a small truck bed access, two thirds, and then full truck bed access. The only problem with those is that when you are in the full truck bed access, the covers are folded up and they are going to block your rear windshield. So if that's a big concern of yours, especially if you are maybe hiding a fifth wheel trailer or something, that's not really a good option for you because while it may hide your fifth wheel, when you go to take the tonneau cover and roll it up, you're not going to be able to just look out the back and easily see your fifth wheel to hook up. And that completes our look at Access's line of their original soft roll up tonneau cover.

Review from a similar Access Original Roll-Up Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


After installation, the cover and its components appear to be a high quality product. It took me approximately 1 hour to install. The installation manual/process would benefit from having color pictures vice the black and white photos.


Comments
My cover has held up and worked well over the last year. I apply 303 Protectant about once a quarter keeping the cover looking new. I would buy this cover again finding it well worth the price for the quality of the product. I do have two minor comments that would improve the cover. First, the pull string used to release the rear latches feels flimsy for the amount of pressure required to unlatch the rear locks. Second, when I transport a small load e.g. push lawn mower secured at the tail gate of the truck I wish there was away to roll up the cover and secure it about 13 of the way and secure it so it doesn’t unroll and flap while driving. These are minor work arounds that don’t take away from the product.

Excellent overall. The ordering was easy on line to navigate and pick the exact cover for my vehicle. The shipment was on time with easy access to monitor the status. And the installation was not a problem. Had a bit of trouble with the front end installation but got it figured out. I found UTube installation video much more useful than the hard copy instruction. The product fit just fine and looks great.

Review from a similar Access Original Roll-Up Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


I've been very pleased with the Access Roll up tonneau. The most important feature for me, was that it sat between the rails. I have a Trac Rack mounted on the bed rails, and the Access cover sits perfectly between. The added height of the cover, sits level with the top of the Trac rails. I have a bedslide in the truck, and the extra 1.5" of height from the Access is crucial. My truck is a 2012 Nissan titan. My only complaint, is that the vinyl cover is susceptible to rub marks. I'm a carpenter, and often I place material on top of the cover (while I'm picking up a tool, or staging something...). The vinyl has a few rashes on it. It would also be nice if there were an extra support beam. I have a short bed variant, and there's only 3 supports. I think a 4th and 5th would help add a little tension to keep the cover from flapping at high speed. I had a factory trifold tonneau (solid surface) that was very nice. For the price, this Access is the best option. I've had $300 tonneau on older trucks, and they were OK. The extra $200 for this cover... I must say it's worth every cent. Locking mechanism is great. Hardware is excellent. This is probably the best product for the money. The next step up, is twice the price...

Great fit looks good.

Review from a similar Access Original Roll-Up Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


This is my second Access Original Tonneau.
That
said...I like them! Here's why...
I have a bedslide in my truck with my toolboxes and trailer gear etc... The Access original sits 1.5" above the bed rails, and with the Bedside/Cargoglide the extra clearance is crucial, as all the slide out units eat up 2-4" of height inside the bed. The access cover lets you retain as much storage as possible. Other covers that sit flush, reduce usable cubic footage in your bed.
Here's what I would change:
While the vinyl cover is quite handsome, it marks up, (as all vinyl does). Something with a little more plastic like surface would be nice- snow would slide off easier, and when I place a piece of lumber on top, I don't have to worry about scratching the surface.
Speaking of weight on top, the Access has 3 support bars. I think having 5 would be perfect. They are easy enough to make and add.

Installation tip:
My current Nissan Titan (Gen 2) with the utilitrack system is a PERFECT match to the system. The access side rails sit right on top of the utilitracks, so they cant slide down.

My old Nissan Titan (gen 1) had standard bed rails, and relied on the clamps to hold the rails in place. Now, it's marketed as a no drill system- and as with all no-drill systems- you are at risk of having the clamps slip off. I've had 4 tonneaus from various manufactures, and this has been the case with all of them. I ended up drilling through, and using SS self tapping screws (4 on each side) to affix the rails to the truck. Super solid and easy, just make sure you drill high enough to capture the metal of the truck bed rail. But, if you have a little more patience than I do, the stock clamps will work fine, with some adjusting as you go.

Roll-up cover installed easily. After 1 year outdoor exposure it still provides good weather protection for the bed. The cover material is taut, does not flap and the hook and loop material seals the sides well.

Review from a similar Access Original Roll-Up Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


OVER ALL VERY GOODThis is a nice cover. It is a changle to install. It took me a little over 2 hours to put in by my self. The problem is with the Ridgeline, NOT the cover. You must take all the bed walls off the truck and this takes time. There is drilling involved, but measure twice and drill once. I marked where the holes were going to go and put the wall back in the truck to make sure it was in the correct spot. The directions were fair, you just have to take your time and double check everything. I am sure if you have the correct tools you could do this job. It is well worth the time because it looks great when you are all done.
