How easy is it to remove the BlackMax Cover?
Both snap covers are designed to roll up quickly against the cab and be secured with strong, convenient straps to allow full access to the bed. Our Clicklock (Classic) and Leverlock (Blackmax) style corners allow you to attach or remove the tail rail instantly, without any tools. The Monster Bows are spring loaded and can be removed or installed easily with one hand.
I have a truck with a utility track system in the bed. Can I still use the BlackMax Tonneau Cover?
Yes, the installation of a Blackmax or Classic Platinum will not interfere with your track system. The covers allow for full use of the system.
Will the BlackMax work in the Winter as well as in the Summer?
Yes, each cover has an exclusive patented all-climate engineered design to 4-way adjustable for cold weather. The Tuffklamps allow for two bow heights: HIGH for maximum water shedding in harsh weather and for improved gas mileage, and LOW for cold weather tonneau attachment. The MaxSnap slides have two settings: stud low for tight tarp fit in hot weather or stud high for looser tarp fit in cold weather.
Will the BlackMax work with my other truck accessories?
Each cover is designed to work with many aftermarket truck accessories and will fit with all types of bedliners, most bedcaps and 5th wheel hitches.
How do I adjust the tension on my tonneau cover?
To adjust the tension on each cover, you can adjust the bow height to the high setting on the TuffKlamp for a tighter fit or the low setting for a looser fit. The MaxSnap slides can be stud low for a tight tarp fit or stud high for a looser fit.
How far above or below the rail does the BlackMax sit?
These covers are designed to sit 1 inch above the bed height, directly on top of the bedrail.
Can I drive with my Tonneau opened?
Yes, unsnapped and rolled at the cab. The vinyl cover must be rolled up to the cab and secured with the Velcro straps.
Do I need to drill my truck when I install my cover?
Absolutely not. No. All of these applications have a 100% no drill, no damage installation.
How long does it take to install my BlackMax Cover?
It takes most customers 30 to 45 minutes to install these covers.
What's the difference between the Classic Platinum and BlackMax?
The Classic Platinum has silver-color rails with silver snaps, which slide freely in the rail, while the Blackmax uses all black components. Additionally, the Blackmax cover snaps around the entire tarp, whereas the Classic Platinum only has snaps on three sides and slides into the cab rail on the 4th side.
