Manufacturer How to Install the Retrax Tonneau Covers


Connect the front cover below the rails, using the front cover mounting screws. Pull the protective film off the spiral canister. Apply the rubber washers to the drain tub fittings, and connect the drain tubes to the 1/2" holes located on the bottom of the spiral canister. Once you've assembled the Retrax cover, two people should work together to lift the cover onto the truck bed. Once the cover is in place, insure that the weather strip on the front of the cover is laid out properly on top of the bulkhead of the pickup, pointing toward the cab. Close the tailgate, and using the measurement tool that is supplied, measure 1/8" between the bottom notch of the rail and the inside face of the closed tailgate.

Next, install the clamps. Start with the locations closest to the canister. The clamps are mounted between the rail adjustment screws. Then attach the rear set of clamps. Once the cover is secure, direct the drain tubes so that they drain water out of the truck bed. Drain holes vary on different makes and models of trucks.

Once finished, open and close the cover, making sure that it is rolling without binding. If needed, turn the rail adjustment screws so rails remain parallel. Pull off the protective film, and double-check that the keys and lock work properly. Now that the Retrax Retractable Bed Cover has been installed, you're ready to take it out on the road.
