Today’s fast paced, hectic lifestyle, with numerous obligations to family and work, leaves very little free time. If you’re one of the many without time to spare, but still want premium protection for your truck bed and cargo, then a folding tonneau cover is the truck bed cover for you. That’s because a folding tonneau cover is so easy to install. Many of the folding tonneaus we offer take less than 5 minutes to install, and you don’t even need any tools.

While features and installation will vary according to manufacturer, most covers arrive at your door fully assembled. Just position the folded cover on the front of your truck bed and hand tighten the clamps under the bed rails; no wrenches or sockets are needed. Unfold the cover and secure the clamps in the same manner at the rear panel. It’s that simple. These covers are lightweight and installation can typically be handled by one person.

Choose from hard or soft folding covers according to your needs and budget. Economical soft covers have panels constructed from vinyl or vinyl covered fabric over a metal framework. Hard folding covers are constructed with powder coated or vinyl covered aluminum panels or FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic) panels. Both type covers will protect your truck bed and contents from the elements, and because your cargo is concealed a soft cover will deter the casual thief. However, a hard panel cover, coupled with your locking tailgate, provides maximum cargo security.

In addition to ease of installation and premium protection and security, a folding cover offers many other benefits. Most of the time you only need access to a portion of your truck bed, for loading groceries or bags of mulch at the home center. What could be easier than dropping the tailgate and folding over the rear panel? Some of our folding covers are available with a front panel that can be folded back, for convenient access to cargo at the front of the bed or to a bed mounted tool box. We also offer folding covers that are sized to fit with your above the rail, cross bed mounted tool box.

When full bed access is needed, the panels can be folded and stacked behind the cab, where they are typically secured with straps and Velcro or quick release buckles. Some covers feature prop rods that hold the panels up behind the rear of the cab, for the most bed access possible. While most folding covers rest on the top of the bed rails, we also offer low profile covers that rest on supports that attach to the sides of the bed rails. While installation is more involved, these covers offer the advantage of leaving the stake holes exposed for tie-down use or for mounting accessories like bed rails or bed racks.
