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.

Review from a similar Sentry CT 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. 683834

Review from a similar Sentry CT in Tonneau 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. 738389

Ask the Experts about this Truxedo Tonneau Covers

  • Does My 2018 Ford F-150 Have the Bed Cargo Management for Picking Out Tonneau Cover
    If you had the cargo management rails in the bed of your 2018 Ford F-150 short bed you'd most likely know. This is a rail system that runs underneath the bed rails that has a channel for mounting accessories in. If you go out to your truck, look in the bed, and you don't see any type of rail under the bed rails you do not have this system and the Truxedo Sentry part # TX1598316 would fit easily. If you did have the cargo management rail system the most similar cover is the BAK Revolver...
