Back To Truck Bed Basics
Part Two: Installing A TonnoPro Folding Tonneau CoverBy Dan Sanchez
Folding tonneau covers make for an easy way to protect cargo in the bed of most pickup trucks. If you haven't already noticed, folding tonneau covers are available from almost every tonneau and cap manufacturer. The reason is because they are lightweight, sturdy, and are easier to install and remove. For those reasons, folding tonneau covers have become very popular with truck owners who want fast, simple cargo protection. What's great for retailers is that one size can fit a variety of truck applications, and are also very affordable. For these reasons, folding tonneau covers move quickly from inventory and are hot sellers year-round.
In part one of this Back To Truck Bed Basics article, we showed the installation of a Rhino Linings urethane bed liner. In this second article, we showcase the installation of a TonnoPro foldling tonneau cover onto the same Toyota Tundra pickup. The TonnoFold tonneau is a light weight vinyl cover that features 6060 aluminum alloy frame rails and heavy-duty Quick Clamps for easy installation. The cover features thick rubber gasket sealing around the edges to seal out the elements. The TonnoFold uses double sided marine-grade vinyl that features four stitches per inch with coated threading that swells and covers the holes created by the stitching process, to prevent leaks. The cover also came with a promo pack that included Proclean vinyl cleaner and treatment, ProGloves, a tailgate seal, and an LED light with Velcro fastner.
Installing the Tonno Pro TonnoFold cover is as simple as removing it from the box and positioning it onto the bed of the truck.
The front clamps are adjusted so that they fit snug against the underside of the truck's bed rails.
The rear clamps are adjusted in the same manner and have a longer handle so they can be easily un-latched to fold the tonneau in the open position.
The Tonno Pro TonnoFold cover also came with vinyl cleaner and protectant, gloves, and an LED light that can be easily attached using the Velcro strip with adhesive backing.
