The RetraxPRO MX offers the most security and the best protection for the items in your truck bed. This aluminum tonneau cover has a snow load of 500 lbs and can withstand impacts and inclement weather. And you can secure this retractable cover at any point along the rails with an easy-to-use, locking handle, all to ensure that your gear stays safe and protected.


Smooth, Retractable Operation

Retrax sealed ball-bearing rollers

This tonneau cover retracts quickly and easily for complete truck bed access. It does this by gliding along the side rails with sealed ball-bearing rollers, which also prevent the cover from binding or retracting unevenly. The RetraxPRO MX has no joints or hinges that can wear out, freeze, or trap dirt. It does not need to be lubricated and it has no springs that can fail. Unlike other truck bed covers on the market, you won't have to struggle with pull straps, hook-and-loop fasteners, or snaps every time you open and close the cover.


Retrax pop-up handle

At the end of the cover, on the driver's side, there is a pop-up handle that makes it easy to slide the cover up and down the length of your truck bed with just one hand. The handle must be popped up for the tonneau to move, but you can push or pull the cover to guide it along the rails from either side of your truck.


Retrax spiral track system

When not in use, the cover rolls up into a space-saving storage canister at the bulkhead of your truck, so you'll never have to remove the tonneau to access your cargo. This canister has a unique spiral track system that keeps the cover from coming into contact with itself while it's retracted. This helps prevent wear and tear on the cover while you're opening and closing it.


Retrax canister with drain tube

With the cover fully retracted, the entire canister assembly only takes up a small portion of your truck bed. And the angled bottom of the canister gives you more space to slide long items or small gear underneath it.


Maximum Security and Protection for Your Cargo

Retrax lid covers key

When the RetraxPro MX is closed, potential thieves will find it nearly impossible to access the items in your truck bed. The locking handle is mounted flat and is concealed with a lid, keeping it well hidden from prying eyes. This flat, weather-guarded lid also keeps out dirt and debris to prevent internal corrosion in the keyhole, ensuring that the lock lasts longer and won't seize up.


Retrax lock and pop-up handle

To unlock the cover, lift the lid on the lock, insert and twist the key, and press the button to release the pop-up handle. Once the handle is up, you can slide the cover back.


Latch Retrax cover anywhere on rails

You can latch the cover at any position along the rails by pushing the handle back down. This lock-in-place feature enables you to carry long items that overlap your tailgate while still covering cargo, such as a tackle box, that's stored closer to the bulkhead of the truck.


Retrax cover operates independent of the tailgate

This cover is better at preventing cargo theft than soft covers, which can be cut open with a knife. It also cannot be pried up at the edges like some hard, folding covers. As a result, your cargo and truck bed are secure when this cover is closed and latched, as long as you lock your tailgate as well. Conveniently, the cover operates independent of the tailgate, so you can open and close the tailgate without touching the cover, and you can open and close the cover without disturbing the tailgate.


Retrax weather strip

To keep snow, water, and dust out of your bed, the tonneau cover includes weather stripping and foam seals. An automotive-grade weather strip ensures a firm, dependable seal along the bulkhead of your truck. Attached to the bottom of each side rail is a foam seal that conforms to the shape of your bed rails. These seals help to prevent any scratches on your bed rails as well as fill any gaps to keep your cargo from getting wet or dirty. The cover also overlaps the top of the tailgate for additional protection against intrusive dirt and debris.


Durable, Long-Lasting, and Attactrive Cover

Retrax attractive cover

The RetraxPRO MX is constructed of heavy-duty aluminum slats that are 1" thick. They have excellent dent and impact resistance to keep the tonneau from getting damaged by falling debris or by thieves who attempt to break in by force. In addition, this cover can hold up to 500 lbs of snow or evenly distributed weight when it's rolled out. And on top of that, its durable matte black finish is weather and scratch resistant.


Retrax drain tube

To prevent mildew from forming on the cover while it's rolled up, the RetraxPRO MX features a water management system that channels excess water out of the storage canister. Two drain tubes attach to the bottom of the canister to remove any water that gets inside. The tubes then route water through the existing drain holes in the floor of your truck bed, ensuring that the stored cover remains as dry as possible.


Retrax flush design

When rolled out, this tonneau sits nearly flush with the back of the canister to give a streamlined look. In addition to the flush-mounted locking handle, the sleek frame features a top panel that overlaps the bulkhead of the truck and storage canister, eliminating the gap in between.


Retrax extends over 5th wheel

The low-profile side rails mount just 1" above your truck bed, which offers a sleek look while still providing enough clearance for most 5th-wheel hitches to remain installed beneath the cover. This tonneau also features wide rails that cover the truck bed rails and stake pockets, adding to the sleek, integrated look.


Easy, No-Drill Installation

Retrax installation parts

To install the RetraxPRO MX, begin by attaching the side rails to the canister with the provided screws.


Retrax installation

Because the cover comes preinstalled inside of the canister, it will take 2 people to lift the assembled unit and place it on your truck. Once the cover is in position, make sure that the side rails are square on your truck bed rails. Then secure them in place with the bolt-on clamps. Finally, install the drain tubes in the canister and route them through the factory holes in your truck bed.

Tremendous. Could not be much happier with it. A hair of water gets in during like a car wash or something but its not bad.

Review from a similar RetraxPRO MX Tonneau Cover with Wide Rails in Tonneau Covers


The RetraxPRO MX Hard Tonneau Cover does leak more water then I thought it would or was lead to believe it would. Also, I thought it would lock in different locations when it was rolling in or out but it doesn't. Question is would I buy it again most likely not because of the issue with the leaking water & not locking in different positions everything else is what I thought it would be, thank you.

  • Comparing RetraxPro MX Hard Tonneau Covers with Aluminum Construction and Matte Black Finish
    The 5 foot 8 inch bed of the 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 is referenced as a 5-1/2 foot bed.
