This hybrid-style cover combines the benefits of a hard tonneau and a soft tonneau into one. It opens faster and removes easier than a hard tonneau. The premium, 5-layer woven polyester and vinyl fabric over aluminum slats provides better protection for your cargo when compared with a standard soft cover. The tonneau rails have 15-degree angles for an ultra-low-profile look, and safely latches at the tailgate and the midway point of your truck bed provide enhanced security for your gear.


Strong, Convenient Hybrid Design

Hybrid design rolls up aluminum slats

This hybrid-style cover blends the durability and security of a hard cover with the flexibility and convenience of a soft cover. The 3/4" thick, hinged aluminum slats are strong enough to protect your cargo yet offer the flexibility to enable you to roll the cover up for full bed access in seconds. The fabric top over the slats provides a seamless look and helps to protect your bed and cargo from the elements.


Ultra-Low-Profile Design

Low profile 15 degree angled rail

The side rails are angled at 15 degrees so the cover sits just 1/2" above your truck bed to create a streamlined look. This aerodynamic design - when paired with a covered truck bed - also reduces wind noise and drag and helps to improve fuel economy.


Quick Truck Bed Access

To access your truck bed, simply pull one of the release cables at the tailgate to release the latches. There are cables on the driver's and passenger's side so you can open the tailgate from either side of your vehicle. The cover can then be rolled up in seconds to store at the cab. This allows you to haul large or tall cargo without the need to completely remove the cover.


Safety straps

To store the cover, roll it tight and secure it with the attached safety straps. Then, secure the ends of the safety straps to the retaining loops on the side of the rails.


You can remove the cover completely in seconds without tools. Simply slide the quick-release guides on the underside of the header away from the side rails to release the cover.


Durable and Stylish Construction

The premium, 5-layer polyester and vinyl fabric layer of the cover is resistant to UV rays and inclement weather. This state-of-the-art material has been tested to withstand extreme temperatures from -40 degrees to 120 degrees F. The material is highly resistant to dirt, and it will maintain a clean appearance more easily than a standard vinyl cover.


vinyl fabric with weather seals

The black fabric top layer and all-black aluminum slats offer a "blacked out" look when the cover is rolled up. The strong, woven material keeps the slats perfectly aligned to ensure that the cover will roll up evenly every time. Standard soft covers can get lopsided as you roll them up.


The hybrid cover's weight capacity also matches many hard covers that do not conveniently roll up. It is strong enough to hold up to 400 lbs of evenly distributed weight when it's rolled out. The aluminum slats also protect your cargo from being damaged by hail and falling objects.


Enhanced Security

The hard aluminum slats of this cover provide better protection against theft when compared with a soft cover that can be cut open with a knife. There are slam latches and additional security latches to provide maximum security.


Slam latches fasten at tailgate

To secure your truck bed, press down on the corner ends of the cover to fasten the 2 slam latches at the tailgate. The latches will lock the cover to the vehicle when used in conjunction with a closed and locked tailgate.


Additional Security Latch

There are additional security latches located at the mid-point of the bed. These latches lock automatically with the slam latches, so you won't have to crawl to the middle of the bed to lock them. These side rail latches prevent thieves from pulling up the cover and sticking their hands underneath to get into your truck bed.


Easy, Clamp-On Installation

Clamp-on installation

The Sentry side rails mount to your truck bed rails with bolt-on clamps for an effortless, no-drill installation. These in-bed rails do not overlap your truck bed stake pockets, so you can still use the stake pockets to mount accessories such as tie-down anchors.


self-leveling design

The side rails have built-in lips to make sure that they stay square with the bed rails as you tighten the clamps. This self-leveling design makes it easy to install the rails, and it ensures the cover rolls evenly every time.


Quick-release guide locks on rail

Installing the cover assembly to the side rails is simple. Place the rolled-up cover on the rails near the bulkhead of your truck. Insert the screws on the leading edge of the cover into the screw holes on the rails. Then slide the quick-release guides on the cover assembly until they lock in place under the rails.


Sealed and secured cover

Unroll the cover completely, and close the tailgate. Push down on the end of the cover to make sure both slam latches lock. To prevent wind from lifting the cover, press down along the length of both rails before driving. This will secure the hook-and-loop fasteners to the rails.

I really like the design of this tonneau cover. The roll-up design allows me to see out my back window when hauling items higher than the truck bed. Also, it was able to keep my truck bed dry during a significant rainstorm. I would suggest holding the tonneau by the fabric on the sides when rolling closed opposed to placing your hand on the ribbing to reduce the chances of pinching your fingers.

I have been on a couple of trips where I've needed to open and close the cover repeatedly. It seems to be quite durable and the locking mechanisms work as designed.

Installation was a little more difficult than anticipated since my drop-in bedliner reduced the width of the truck bed between the side-rails at the front of the truck bed where the tonneau attaches. After finding a wider area between the bed-rails, I was able to wedge the the top of the tonneau into the side-rails and push the tonneau through the side-rail track towards the front of the truck bed. It allowed we to wedge the bedliner wider increasing the width between the side rails. I was able to install this by myself in about 90 minutes even with the complications.

Review from a similar TruXedo Sentry CT Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


This is a well made bed cover. Easy to use, solid and secure, but not in the way when open. I love that it does not block my back window when driving with it open. The fabric on top of the aluminum is high quality and looks good. Highly recommend, I'm actually happy there was not a back flip for my truck, as I wanted to ordered one, but this is a better solution.

Review from a similar TruXedo Sentry CT Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


Easy to install, perfect fit for the new Tundra 22 6.5ft bed, looks awesome and it's super slim. Seems like it will also last a while.
Initially I thought I could have the rear seal flap on top of the tailgate, but it's much easer to open and close the gate without lifting the cover if it's 90deg folded won.
Rides nice when stored as well, though it does take a bit of space (bike tires do fit nice under the folded/rolled cover).

Review from a similar TruXedo Sentry CT Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


Very nice cover and installed very easy. Was installing with a Tracrac SR and etrailer said it would fit in my truck with the Tractac. What they failed to tell me was that I may have to remove and adjust the rails for the Tracrac. Basically had to do a new install on the Tracrac.

Review from a similar TruXedo Sentry CT Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


Loving this cover. It's super-simple to use - just roll it closed and run your hand down the sides to press the hook & loop fasteners down. I wanted a retractable cover, but didn't want the big box taking up space in the bed of my truck. This cover is easily-removed so I have the full bed available for use. The only downside I've found is that it can't be left in any partially-open positions (like my old retractable could).

Review from a similar TruXedo Sentry CT Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


Purchased about 6 months ago and have been using it since. Once you install it correctly and the left and right sides are balanced, it closes with the flick of the wrist. We are definitely pleased and would purchase it again. My wife who can barely reach the cover of our 2022 gmc sierra 2500 standard bed has no problem rolling this up. Just make sure to close the tailgate before closing the top, otherwise you'll crunch the molding on the top. Enjoy!

Review from a similar TruXedo Sentry CT Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


Very high quality product. When rolled out, the cover rubber gears did not stay in the track near the tail gate. Had to do some improvising (i.e. little cutting and filing) to get the cover to snap closed easily.

Review from a similar TruXedo Sentry CT Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


Really great cover. It looks just like it did when I installed it a year later. It is easy to remove for when I need to haul larger items like my motorcycles. Does a good job at keeping the rain out as well.

Only issue is the latches by the tail gate don't always retract so I have manually push them back in when closing the lid. I guess the spring is a bit weak.

Review from a similar TruXedo Sentry CT Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


I had to return the cover because turns out my box on my pick up wasn’t square then by the cabin was wider than the far end so the Tonnele cover kept falling through and I never could get it installed properly so I had to send it back I did get a partial refund but overall I lost over $150 on the transaction
My advice is make sure your box is square.

Review from a similar TruXedo Sentry CT Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


I love it! An instant upgrade for my 2010, F350 truck. Installation was easy-one man job. A bit heavy but I figure that means it's rugged and will last! I highly recommend the TruXedo Sentry hard tonneau cover. One of the best!

Review from a similar TruXedo Sentry CT Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


Installation was pretty straight forward, around 30-45 minutes total. Once installed, the look of the cover is fantastic. Very low profile and the matte black finish on the cover material looks great.

There was a factory quality defect with the installation of the side latches that run up both sides of the cover. Each latch has a cable that connects from the cover to the side latch. As the cover is rolled up, tension gets applied to that cable and it releases the latch allowing you to seamlessly roll-up the cover. On my cover, two of the cables were too loose and would never get enough tension to release the side latches. I could only roll-up the cover about two feet before it would stick. The cables are not adjustable so you cannot fix this issue without new parts.

I contacted Truxedo and they sent out a repair kit for the side latches. I was able to install the new cables and the cover functioned as it should. It was a total of 24 days from the time of ordering my cover until it was fully functional.
I am happy with the look of the cover. I have not had a chance to see how weather tight it is. Hopefully the issue with the side latches is a one-off defect and not representative of the overall quality of this product. I have made several purchases from etrailer and this is the only hiccup I have ever had.

Excellent product...easy install...keeps equipment covered and out of elements...keeps everything dry, even when going through truck wash....More secure than the non-backed covers.

Living at 5000ft I was concerned about the UV degradation, but haven’t seen any in a year. The form/fit/function on my 2018 F350 short bed is excellent and it doesn’t leak in rain or car washes. Great product.

No issues, no fading. Glad to have the strong aluminum slats after getting several foot deep snow storms on it.

Very easy to install. Awesome product. Slightly loose back towards the tailgate in the middle where there aren’t any latches. Haven’t been able to test the water resistance yet but seems 100 times better than my previous tri-fold.

    The TruXedo Sentry CT Hard Tonneau Cover - Roll Up - Aluminum, Polyester, and Vinyl - Matte Black, part # TX1597716, leaves the stake pockets of your 2022 Ford F-150 uncovered.

  • Ladder Rack with the TruXedo Sentry CT Tonneau Cover # TX1597716 on a 2021 F-150 Short Bed
    I have a great ladder rack and tonneau solution for you. However, Adarac does not make an M-Series ladder rack that is compatible with a 5-1/2 foot bed on a 2021 Ford F-150. With that being said, a great alternative is the Adarac Pro Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack # A86RR (matte black) or # A4000964 (silver). While this rack sits higher than the M-Series on your vehicle, the Pro Series comes with the same fully adjustable bases that you can position anywhere along the bed. Also,...
