Think of a retractable tonneau cover as a window shade for your truck bed. When you want sunshine you tug on the shade and a spring rolls it up to expose the window. When you want full access to your truck bed, the aluminum tonneau cover rolls up into a canister at the front of the bed. And just as the shade delivers privacy when drawn over the window, the retractable tonneau cover provides complete, water resistant, and locking bed security when closed.

A retractable tonneau combines the convenience and ease of use of a roll up cover with the maximum security of a hard shell tonneau, creating a sleek, stylish, low profile bed cover you’ll love for its looks alone. The cover is formed from aluminum sections joined in weather tight connections that are flexible to allow the cover to roll up in response to the canister torsion spring. The aluminum sections glide in tracks mounted below the bed rails.

The canister in a retractable tonneau cover takes up very little space, so you get full use of your truck bed. But if you only need partial access, the cover has multiple detents along the bed rails where the cover will lock in position. The aluminum is powder coated or vinyl covered for durability, and although these covers are water resistant, many also come with water drainage systems to channel water out of the truck bed. Each cover is a vehicle specific design, so you can be assured of perfect fit and easy installation that requires little or no drilling; however drilling is required for the drainage hoses.

The mounting location of a retractable tonneau cover means that the bed rail stake holes are left free for accessories like bed rails and racks. And speaking of accessories, some of our retractable covers are available with a tool box included, so you can have quick and easy access to tools or other necessities along with the protection, style and security of a tonneau cover. These boxes are made from durable galvanized steel, and feature gas struts for smooth, easy opening and organizer trays to keep all your gear in order. LED interior lighting, stainless steel trays, and chrome handles are optional on some boxes.

Saving time and effort helps you concentrate on the business or pleasure at hand, and a retractable tonneau cover does its part because there is no fabric to roll up or panels to fold. The convenience continues with locks that use the same key on tonneau and tool box, on covers so equipped, and some covers are even available with a keyless entry option for quick access. And while most retractable tonneaus are strong enough to support hundreds of pounds, it’s generally not recommended that cargo be loaded on the cover.
