As our premier cover within the BAKFlip family the F1 has a rich, high-gloss FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Polymer) top surface which provides superior dent, ding and scratch resistance. Heavy-duty aluminum panels line the underside, giving the cover its strength and durability. Together, these make the F1 our top of the line BAKFlip, offering a stylish and secure cover for the long haul. Besides, being equipped with the novelty drainage system that makes water move to the side drains and then reach the front hoses to run out of your truck, the cover prevents any moisture from entering the truck bed. This accessory allows you 100% access to your cargo thanks to its folding panels and locking arm pivots that secure the cover.
The F1’s rugged design is made to perform in severe working and weather conditions. Rain, hail or snow – the F1 has you covered. Quickly and easily fold and lock the cover in the flipped up position for hauling large loads. The F1’s advanced infrastructure and upgraded components provide unrivaled strength and security. Thanks to the slam latch system, the panels of this tonneau cover lock automatically, and all you need to do is to pull on the release cable to unlock the panels. The installation doesn't need any special skills or tools. You should just clamp the rails, drop the cover on them, and attach the drain hoses to have the item set up. In order to keep it in proper condition, you need to wash the cover with soap and water every so often. In conclusion, the add-on is covered by a 3-year warranty, so you can buy with complete confidence.
