  • Troubleshooting Water Pooling on Soft Tonneau Cover and Leaking Into Truck Bed
  • We do offer replacement support bows for the TruXedo Lo Pro QT Soft Roll-Up Tonneau, like part # TX578101-BOW. These are designed to replace the existing bows that come with this tonneau cover, and they are not designed to be added to a different tonneau cover. If you do not have the Lo Pro QT, there are a couple other options that may provide a solution to your problem. If the tonneau cover is not tight across the truck bed, and it has a tensioning device, the cover may need to have...

  • Truxedo Truxport Cover Is Hard To Snap Shut
  • Since you just installed the tonneau cover, it needs a day or so to heat up and stretch out. There is no need to adjust cover length tension. The Latch Assembly is set to the correct tension. Any modification done to this will VOID warranty. Put the cover outside in the sun as much as you can until the material is stretched out. Tonneau covers with a vinyl construction like the TruXedo TruXport Soft, Roll-Up Tonneau Cover # TX246601 tend to be extremely tight until they stretch out and...

  • Diagnosing Pace Edwards UltraGroove Tonneau Cover That Has Noise And Vibration On Highway
  • I spoke with Pace Edwards about the flexing and the noise you are hearing on your Ultragroove Tonneau Cover. This is fairly common for tonneau covers at highway speeds, including retracting covers. There are a few things you can check to possibly reduce the noise and vibration; make sure the side to side play is between 1/8" and 1/4" and make sure the rails are flat. I also attached a link to the instructions so that you can verify everything was installed and put together correctly.

  • Replacement Tailgate Top Seal for Pace Edwards Retractable Tonneau Covers
  • In order to install the Replacement Tailgate Top Seal for Pace Edwards Retractable Tonneau Covers # PE99CV you will need to start with the tonneau cover completely open. You'll then remove the tonneau railing caps or stop blocks, remove the 2 hex screws at the tailgate of the tonneau rails and remove the rear clamps. You'll then want to lift the end of the rail up to remove an inner screw that will reveal itself (one on each side) and need to be removed with a phillips head screwdriver....

  • Troubleshooting Ladder Rack Fit for 2019 Ford Ranger with G2 Tonneau Cover
  • For your 2019 Ford Ranger with Backflip G2 # BAK226332 there is not a specific fit available that will be directly compatible with your 5 foot bed and folding tonneau cover. If it were me, I would get the Adarac Pro Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum - 500 lbs # A4000964 knowing it is a fit for a F-150 5 foot 6 inch bed and the rails will need to be trimmed to fit but the vertical pieces will work well with your cover. The Yakima Overhaul you referenced will not be compatible.

  • Can A BOLT Lock For Tonneau Covers Be Rekeyed Or Can The Key Code Be Looked Up
  • BOLT locks key to the ignition key so that you can have everything unlocked with one key so that you're not carrying as much or as likely to lose the key. I recommend checking the key for the ignition key for the F-150 first to see if he keyed it to that. If not their locks unfortunately can not be rekeyed and there wouldn't be a way for anyone to look up the key he used during the initial installation process. If this is the case for you then you would need to drill out the lock and...

  • Troubleshooting Pace Edwards Switchblade Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover Not Latching Closed
  • It sounds like you may either need to adjust the stops or clean the latches on your Pace Edwards Switchblade Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover # 311-SWF7084. The latches at the center of the cover are spring loaded so if they are not retracting back out when you pull the cover closed there may be some dirt in the handles or latches which is preventing them from extending into the latch on the edge of the rail. Likewise you will want to check the rails to make sure the cover is fully reaching...

  • Troubleshooting An Extang Solid Fold 2.0 Tonneau Cover That Won't Fold
  • It sounds to me like something is stuck in the hinge of between the first and second sections of your Extang Solid Fold 2.0 Hard Tonneau Cover # EX83590. Depending on your location you may just have some ice build up in the hinge. There shouldn't be anything else that could block the operation of your cover's hinge.

  • Recommended Bonding Agent For Reattaching Vinyl To An Aluminum Base Tonneau Cover
  • Since the vinyl is separating from the aluminum the bonding agent used by the manufacturer has failed. The only real way to repair your BAK Revolver X2 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK39506 would be to re-cement the vinyl back to the aluminum. We don't currently carry the correct bonding agent, but the most popular option is HH-66 Vinyl Cement. I would also call BAK and see if you can't get a warranty replacement since it comes with a 3-year warranty and you stated that you replaced it only...

  • Cab Clamps on Extang Solid Fold 2.0 for 2018 Toyota Tacoma Keep Coming Loose
  • I did not catch exactly what tonneau cover you are referring to but the photo you attached makes me think you have the Extang Solid Fold 2.0 Hard Tonneau Cover. If that is the case then what you are going to want to do is replace the cab clamps with the Replacement Jaw Grip Clamp for Extang Solid Fold 2.0 Tonneau Covers part # EX42FJ. I spoke with Extang and they said that over time the threads can become damaged due to over tightening which would then allow the bolt to come unthreaded...

  • Troubleshooting Bedlocker Retractable Cover Stuck Closed But Hear Motor Trying To Operate
  • You may have the brake locked up on the Bedlocker tonneau cover. There should be a release lever on the drivers side of the canister which will allow you to manually operate the cover. If you are able to operate the cover when using the release lever then there is an electrical issue which is not allowing the brake to be released when the motor is engaged. If the cover will still not budge there may be some debris stuck inside the gears that operate the cover.

  • Troubleshooting Extang Trifecta Soft Tonneau Cover That Flops In the Wind
  • I reached out to my contact at Extang and was told that air may be getting underneath the Extang Trifecta 2.0 Soft Tonneau Cover # EX92830. To fix this issue, drop the tailgate and look inside the bed to see if you can see light coming through in the front. If you see exposed light, Extang recommends using weather seal to seal off areas where light is exposed. With everything sealed up properly you should not have further issues. Using a product like the Replacement Cab Seal for Extang...

  • Squeaky Noise from the TruXedo TruXport Soft, Roll-Up Tonneau Cover
  • I spoke to my contact at TruXedo about the TruXedo TruXport Soft, Roll-Up Tonneau Cover that you have on your 2017 Nissan Frontier and they have not had any complaints about the cover squeaking but they did tell me to have you check the distance from the cab to the cover and distance from the tailgate to the cover to make sure they are equal. What is most likely happening is that the header seal is contacting the cab which could then in turn cause the squeaking noise you are hearing. If...

  • Does BAKFlip F1 Keep the Truck Bed Contents Dry
  • There isn't a tonneau cover out there that is totally water tight, but the BAKFlip F1 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK72203 that you referenced has rubber seals where all of the moving parts are which help to keep the water out and also has a drain system that works to direct any water that gets past the seals to outside of the truck bed. This cover is one of the best options for keeping water out of the truck bed so you will be happy with that aspect of it.

  • Troubleshooting TruXport Tonneau Cover Not Aligning with Truck Bed
  • As you mentioned in your question, the cover should be able to slide along the groves above the cab header so that you can align it with the bed. If it is not moving like you described then you will want to make sure that the end plugs on the header are removed. The plugs will prevent the unit from moving so this is likely your issue. If you are still having trouble adjusting the cover please let me know and I will be happy to look into this further.
