FAQ Answers to BakFlip Truck Bed Covers

Security: BakFlip covers are made of multiple panels. These panels automatically lock as you close them. The only way to release these hard folding panels is to pull on a latch cable secured under the cover. Doing so will allow you to fold each panel forward. When the panels are closed you cannot open the cover without access to the under-side of the BakFlip panels. LOCKING YOUR TAILGATE will result in the cover being completely impregnable. If your truck does not have a locking tailgate then a tailgate lock such as a pop n lock can be simply added. The latches secure the cover on both sides and the panels can be operated from either the driver or passenger side of the truck bed. This means it is convenient to operate the cover from either side. All BakFlip’s have tamper-proof locking slam latches which offer maximum “out of sight – out of mind” security and peace of mind. BakFlip GS Cover composition: BakFlip GS covers are made from heavy duty laminated sandwich panels. These panels are layered with ABS sheets on either side of a core made from EPS, essentially making the panels extremely strong, yet lightweight. The panels are also insulated making them noise resistant and allowing the truck bed to be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. The EPS (closed cell foam) core is completely weather resistant and cannot leak or allow any moisture to penetrate the panels. The ABS is UV protected and impervious to harmful sun rays, acids, fertilizers, chemicals, gasoline etc. BakFlip HD Cover composition: BakFlip HD panels are made of aluminum. All BakFlip covers have 4 panels which fold. Trucks that are less than 6 feet long have just 3 folding panels. All panels are framed with tough aluminum frames. These frames add to the tensile strength of the panels and allow over 200lbs of evenly distributed weight to be put on top of the cover. The panels are almost an inch thick. And sit completely flush with the top edge of your truck bed rails.

Hinges: BakFlip hinges are seamless. Unlike a piano hinge which can rust, leak, squeak, corrode and wear with time, the BakFlip seamless hinge system is made of a synthetic rubber. These specially formulated hinges act as the panel connectors, yet are flexible enough to act as hinges. This unique patented hinge system is completely silent and will not result in road chatter and is completely water proof.

Clamping system: BakFlip covers all install using a patented rail system. This rail system is clamped to the truck bed using specially designed clamps that grip behind the truck bed rails and sandwich the BakFlip rails in position. These clamps result in a clean, easy installation that requires no drilling. They clamps are easy to install and are serrated so that they grip the rails firmly and will not slip or loosen over time.

Rails: BakFlip rails are made from extremely durable Aluminum. They are powder coated black to match the vehicles accents and have a built in drainage gutter to collect any unwanted water. The rails help to funnel the water towards a drain valve located at the front ends of the rails. This patented rail system ensures that your cargo remains dry at all times. The panels also latch to these rails. The rails are lined with rubber gaskets so that they never scuff or rub the paint off your truck bed rails. The rails extend a mere 1/8th inch over the edge of the truck bed and 1 inch inwards of the truck rails. This means that they do not obstruct bed extenders and will work with most toolboxes as well.

Weights: The average BakFlip G2 cover weighs a mere 40 lbs and the BakFlip HD about 55 lbs. This includes the weight of the rails. The cover is designed to handle over 250 lbs of weight. The core of the panel gives it a lightweight feel, however don’t be fooled by this. Many aircrafts are made with this technology and are designed to be extremely strong, yet light. Because of the light weight nature of the cover, it is easy for people of all ages to operate. It’s also easy to ship or to remove and put back whenever you’d like.

All season friendly: Since the BakFlip is made of specially chosen weather resistant components and engineered with as few moving parts as possible, they are extremely water tight. While it is impossible for any cover to claim being 100% water proof, BakFlip covers can be relied upon to keep in excess of 98% of any water out of the truck bed. There are 2 drain hoses in the front of each rail that funnel water that’s collected in the rail system out of the bed. Since 99% of trucks are raised at the back and lower at the front end, these drain tubes are uniquely position at the far front corners of the bed to ensure that they work optimally. Snow and ice are no match for the BakFlip. Simply break any ice build up off the cover or sweep off snow. The BakFlip is designed to perform in extreme temperatures. Since the panels are impact resistant, they cannot dent, so even hail is not a problem. Specially engineered front and rear gaskets seal the cover at the cab end and tailgate end of the truck. This keeps moisture out and ensures tighter security on a whole.

Driving with panels open: You can absolutely drive with the BakFlip panels open. Specially incorporated D-rings and anchor points are an integral part of each BakFlip cover. This means that you can drive with one, two, three or four panels open for a wealth of loading options which are unavailable with any other truck bed cover. This feature is a favorite of any person who pulls a 5th wheel trailer or simply wants the convenience of NEVER having to remove their cover to haul a load of any size. Every BakFlip cover has 2 integrated gas struts. The struts assist in raising the panels to a vertical position behind your cab. Since the panels are stacked on top of each other before being raised vertically, they are at their heaviest which is why the struts are so convenient. They are rated at 70 lbs. They gas struts will keep the panels in this upright position without allowing them to flop down. IT IS HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED THAT YOU ONLY DRIVE WITH THE COVER IN THIS POSITION IF YOU MUST, EG: IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING SUPPORTING IT OPEN SUCH AS A DESK OR REFRIGERATOR.

BAKFLIP WORKS WITH OTHER ACCESSORIES: Huge amounts of research have gone into producing BakFlip covers to allow them to seamless co-exist and install with other commonly used accessories. These include bed caps, tailgate protectors, bed rails, carpet bedliners, spray on bedliners, drop in bedliners, floor mounted tool boxes, stake pocket mounted accessories such as tie downs and racks. Unfortunately BakFlip covers are not designed to work with old fashioned over the rail bedliners unless you modify the rails of the liner. The will however work with any bed rail (plastic) that comes on trucks directly from the manufacturer.

Maintenance: Since BakFlip covers are rugged and built to last, simple washing at the time you wash your truck is sufficient to see your cover last for years. It is fine to spray or clean the cover with agents such as 303 or ArmorAll.

How cool would it be to make the panels solar and use for recharging. That would be a lot of solar energy driving around our country:)

I've had several trucks and as many bed covers, all different. This one is by far the best bed cover I've had. I just hope the long term review will be as good as this short term.

Installation was a breeze. 30 minutes tops with just my eight year old handing me tools. Everything worked as advertised right away. Flipping up only as many panels as needed works but the product lacked anything to secure the panels from flipping back closed at highway speed. The water drain tubes are functional but need a zip tie or something to secure to the product because the tubes are so big and loose. My truck has the tailgate step and since the tailgate cap has two extra seams there is nothing on the product to cover those and keep water out. Other then that it seems to be fairly waterproof.

I've had it since early May and so far there are no issues and it works very well. Time will tell how long the rubber seams and hinges last with continuous use. Almost two months in and it still looks new, looks good on my truck and everything works as advertised.

Price?? Maybe a little high at $1,000 but that seems in line with what you're getting as far as materials used in this cover. This is no cheaply made soft roll-up with velcro. It is a high quality hard bed cover that fits snugly and securely.

I would not hesitate to recommend this to friends and in fact I already have.

Installed the cover about a month ago and it has experienced a fair amount of rain. No leaks into the bed area (also installed tailgate seal). The best 450 mile average mpg we had experienced was 20.3 (at about 65 mph)without the cover. Not sure if the cover had anything to do with it but a recent 450 mile average (at about 65 mph)returned 22.4. The installation package needs to be revised to include a length of shim to fit along the inside bed underneath the factory bedcap (between the tailgate post and forward post. Wish the rubber trim would shine and suspect the visible tops of the two forward flat-headed "elevator bolts" will quickly oxidize. It took the full 2 weeks of estimated shipping time to arrive.
Good option to instal.

I received the cover the same day it originally was due to ship in great shape. When I finally had the time to install it, it took me about 40 minutes start to finish - it is every bit as easy as the video shows. I recommend that you watch the installation video, which is online, at least a couple times and you won't need the installation instructions much at all. I did have my wife assist me as I put the cover on the truck, but that is the only help I had. Otherwise very easy. I had the instructions set out by me while I installed but referred only to them on the tightness of the clamps and squaring the cover. If you are looking for a secure, real nice looking, easy to install cover for your PU this is the one for you. It is a bit pricey but I think well worth the $$.

Easy to install (less than 30 mins) and works great. Really like the flush look. Not 100% waterproof but pretty close. Compared to other tops I like how this one folds up in sections as needed and also allows you to prop it all the way open to have full access to the bed. Works very easy.
Great fit, works well! Worth the money.
