Ease of Installation
Rather disappointed with this cover. Functionally, it's great. Seals water out, clamps securely, and is easy to install or remove.

The quality is very disappointing. After one weekend trip, one of the LED lights went out. Also, a small foam piece lost is adhesion and I found it in my truck bed. The rearward clamps do not stay put in their slots when you are trying to fold the cover to the open position. As a result of this last problem, one of the clamps came out as I was folding the cover to the open position and now there's a small dent in the forward panel where the clamp came loose I was setting the cover down. I have to be VERY careful when folding the cover back because it was not assembled precisely at the factory.

Additionally, the finish is low quality. In ONE trip to the mountain, the cover got a few inches of snow and some ice on it. In some places i used a plastic scrapper to clear the ice but mostly allowed it to melt. However, the black finish has started coming off in all places. In general, the finish just seems to flake off.

I would NOT recommend this cover or any cover by this company to anyone else.
