Roll-N-Lock Tonneau Covers – FAQS

ROLL-N-LOCK FAQS

ARE ROLL-N-LOCK TONNEAU COVERS AVAILABLE FOR MY TRUCK?  

Roll-N-Lock truck bed covers are available for all current model pickup trucks.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A ROLL-N-LOCK TONNEAU COVER?

We can usually supply within a day or two.  Applications for some less popular pickup trucks are made-to-order and as a result will take longer to manufacture and ship.

HOW STRONG IS THE ROLL-N-LOCK TONNEAU COVER?  HOW MUCH WEIGHT WILL IT HOLD?

The Roll-N-Lock tonneau cover will withstand a concentrated load of about 120 pounds. In other words, standing on the cover could cause visible damage. However, damaging the cover with even twice the amount of force referred to does not mean that a forced entry can be achieved. The result would simply be deformation of the cover body. A distributed load, such as snow, is easily managed.

WILL DRILLING BE REQUIRED TO ATTACH A ROLL-N-LOCK TONNEAU COVER TO MY TRUCK?

Drilling on most trucks is limited to the tailgate only, as the primary attaching means is accomplished with Roll-N-Lock’s patented clamp-on track system.

HOW WILL THE VINYL SURFACE MATERIAL WITHSTAND THE ELEMENTS, PARTICULARLY THE SUN?

The vinyl material used by Roll-N-Lock is a product of Haartz Corporation, the world’s leading producer of automotive and marine grade vinyl. It was developed for use in direct exposure conditions and meets the specifications of the large automakers. The very same material is used on the door panels and instrument panels of many of the world’s most popular vehicles.

WHAT IS REQUIRED TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN A ROLL-N-LOCK TONNEAU COVER?

The tonneau cover requires occasional treatment with 303 Aerospace Vinyl Protectant, a bottle of which is packaged with every Roll-N-Lock cover. It should be applied each time you wash your truck.

ARE ROLL-N-LOCK TRUCK BED COVERS WATERTIGHT?

In a word, no. Roll-N-Lock tonneau covers are movable systems, making it almost impossible to achieve absolute water tightness. However, properly installed, Roll-N-Lock is a reasonably dry application. Some dripping can occur when parked in a continuous rain. This is generally at the tailgate area. Some applications are more problematic in this regard due to unusual bed configurations. Conditions on the Honda Ridgeline and 2001-2003 Ford Super Crew applications cause these to be more susceptible to dripping than more conventional models.
