Can I buy a Roll-N-Lock tonneau cover direct from the factory or must I go through a dealer?

It is important for Roll-N-Lock Corporation to have the support and participation from the global network of truck accessories dealers and distributors. This provides us the advantage of maintaining inventory in strategic locations and enables us to provide warranty service in every market area. To maintain this participation, Roll-N-Lock Corporation is obligated to sell tonneau covers and other cargo management products through its dealer network. We will sell direct only if we are not represented in your area.

How long does it take to get a Roll-N-Lock tonneau cover?

For most popular pickups, Roll-N-Lock's truck bed covers are generally in stock at the factory or at a regional distributor, and are available for immediate shipment to your local dealer. Many dealers can provide almost immediate installation.

How strong is the Roll-N-Lock tonneau cover, how much weight will it hold?

The Roll-N-Lock tonneau cover will withstand a concentrated load of about 120 pounds. In other words, standing on the cover could cause visible damage. However, damaging the cover with even twice the amount of force referred to does not mean that a forced entry can be achieved. The result would simply be deformation of the cover body. A distributed load, such as snow, is easily managed.

Will drilling be required to attach a Roll-N-Lock tonneau cover to my truck?

Drilling on most trucks is limited to the tailgate only, as the primary attaching means is accomplished with Roll-N-Lock's patented clamp-on track system. Attachment of the tailgate extrusion (tailgate locking closure strip) requires five small, self-drilling screws, which are tucked neatly within or under the extrusion. The LG146, LG165, LG175, LG176, LG208, LG218, LG270, LG265, LG300/305, LG440, LG450, LG445/455, LG448/449 & LG560 require minimal drilling into the down flange of the bedrail. The LG145 is the exception, requiring coupling flanges which are screwed on to the bed rails.

How will the vinyl surface material withstand the elements, particularly the sun?

The vinyl material used by Roll-N-Lock is a product of Haartz Corporation, the world's leading producer of automotive and marine grade vinyl. It was developed for use in direct exposure conditions and meets the specifications of the large automakers. The very same material is used on the door panels and instrument panels of many of the world's most popular vehicles.

Are Roll-N-Lock truck bed covers watertight?

In a word, no. Roll-N-Lock tonneau covers are movable systems, making it almost impossible to achieve absolute water tightness. However, properly installed, Roll-N-Lock is a reasonably dry application. Some dripping can occur when parked in a continuous rain. This is generally at the tailgate area. Some applications are more problematic in this regard due to unusual bed configurations. Conditions on the Honda Ridgeline and 2001-2003 Ford Super Crew applications cause these to be more susceptible to dripping than more conventional models.
