How does the Premium Aluminum Series works?
The patented Premium Aluminum series truck bed covers are constructed of heavy-duty aluminum slats, which are connected by durable, yet flexible hinges. The low-profile design incorporates a front cover that is flush with the rolling cover, which streamlines the overall appearance and provides a firm, dependable seal to help keep the bed dry. Simply press the button on the latch to open the Premium Aluminum series and you will immediately be impressed at the way it smoothly glides back and forth with just one hand. Sealed ball-bearing rollers mounted onto the ends of the aluminum slats allow the cover to retract or close effortlessly without the use of springs or any kind of mechanism; no moving parts to jam, freeze or fail. The compact storage canister contains a unique spiral track system that prevents the cover from rubbing on itself as it retracts and closes, eliminating wear and tear on the cover.
What are the connecting hinges constructed of?
The hinges that connect the Premium Aluminum series aluminum slats are custom extruded thermoplastic elastomer. This material is designed to last the life of the cover, ensure smooth operation and provide a dependable seal.
How does the Premium Aluminum Series lock?
The Premium Aluminum series can be latched or key-locked in any position along the bed rail. The secure Dual Latch Locking System latches to both Premium Aluminum series rails for added security, offering protection that no soft cover can. When you need access to your pickup bed simply release the flush-mounted latch with the touch of a button – no key required – and the cover glides out of your way with the just one hand. The cover can be locked open in any position along the rail to allow unlimited hauling flexibility and convenient use with a fifth-wheel trailer.
