Q: Is there a total loading limit that shall not be exceeded when using the TonneauTraX?

Yes! Each individual anchor is rated at a working load limit of 250 pounds. The total loading for all anchor locations combined shall not exceed 1000 pounds.

Q: Are there any objects or items that I should not secure or tie down to my TonneauTraX?

We suggest that you do not attach heavy or unstable objects to TonneauTraX rails. You should only use the trucks factory bed anchors for securing unstable items or heavy items that exceed the TonneauTraX recommended load rating of the cargo anchors. Failure to do so, could cause damage to the pickup bed.

Q: How do I care for my vinyl tonneau cover?

The vinyl fabric on your tonneau cover can be cleaned with mild soap and water, and may be hand washed or safely cleaned in the car wash of your choice. Thoroughly rinse cover to remove any soap residue. Vinyl cover can be treated with any vinyl protectants made for tonneau covers. Never clean cover with petroleum or citrus-based products, and avoid silicone based protectants. We now offer Pro-Tex™ soft tonneau protectant spray to clean, preserve and protect your soft tonneau.

Q: How do I adjust the tension on my tonneau cover?

The TonneauTraX tonneau cover has automatic tension control. There are two spring loaded steel plungers at the front of the bed that maintain constant tension on the front header, allowing the cover to stay tight in any weather. Initially, you need to set the tension. This should be done during the warmest part of the day by closing the cover, releasing the Velcro® brand fasteners from both sides near the cab, and checking compression of the spring plungers against the front header. Roll cover open to make adjustments. Repeat until satisfactory tension is achieved. Refer to the TonneauTraX Owner’s Manual for more specific information.

Q: Will the TonneauTraX work with my other truck accessories?

Yes! The unique inside mount design of the TonneauTraX rails enables you to accessorize with most bed rails, bed liners, and rail caps.

Q: Can I lock the TonneauTraX?

The TonneauTraX secures automatically when latched at the rear, and provides added security when used with a locking tailgate. It cannot be opened until the tailgate is unlocked and opened. There are no additional locks or sliding mechanisms needed to lock the cover.

Q: Will the TonneauTraX work in the winter as well as in the summer?

The tonneau cover fabric will not shrink in cold temperatures, to –40 degrees F. Patented automatic tension control system keeps the cover tight whether it is 40 degrees below or 120 degrees above. Sliding Velcro® brand hook on the side rail works with the automatic tension control plungers to keep the cover tight – even when it’s closed!

Q: Will the TonneauTraX work with a 5th wheel?

Yes! Simply roll the cover all the way open and secure with security straps at the front of the bed. This allows you full access to your 5th wheel.

Q: Can I still open my tailgate with TonneauTraX on my truck?

Yes – the TonneauTraX does not restrict the tailgate. The rear header functions independently of the tailgate so there is nothing to remove when opening the tailgate.

Q: Does the TonneauTraX come in different colors?
