BakFlip Tonneau Installation

BakFlip Hinges:
BakFlip covers are comprised of a series of panels that are connected to each other with a seamless rubber hinge made from EPDM. This rubber cannot corrode in extreme temperatures and can be folded back and forth for years without any noticeable wear at all. Unlike piano hinges or metal hinges that can leak, corrode or rust, the BakFlip’s patented hinge system is completely resistant to all temperatures and the most torrential weather conditions.


BakFlip Panels:
BakFlip panels are laminated from either impact resistant plastic or rugged aircraft grade aluminum. After the panels are crafted to the correct size they are framed with a patented aluminum frame that renders BakFlip the strongest folding truck bed cover available anywhere in the world. The frames around the panels are also the receptacle for the rubber hinges that simply slide into the panel frame with a unique tongue and groove design. The panel frames act as a double insurance against any possible water from penetrating or bypassing a hinge. BakFlip panels cannot be cut with a blade. Even though the hinges are rubber, they are encased from the underside in solid model and can therefore also not be penetrated with a knife or sharp blade.



BakFlip locks and latches:
BakFlip latches are concealed under the BakFlip panels so that they are never exposed to the elements or the prying eyes of potential thieves. Rain, snow, dust, sand and any other contaminant is no match for the BakFlip latch! The ingenious design of the BakFlip’s latches allow the BakFlip panels to me anchored down automatically. The latches are designed to engage the BakFlip’s rails, merely by shutting your tonneau cover. BakFlip’s with 3 folding panles have latches under all panels. BakFlip’s with 4 folding panels have latches under the first, third and fourth panles. Releasing the BakFlip’s latch is as easy as tugging on a release cable from either side of the truck. You never need to climb into the truck or worry about additional aftermarket keys. In most instances the key you drive with is the key you lock the BakFlip tonneau cover with.


How to drive with the BakFlip open:
BakFlip’s are all equipped with powder coated D-rings on top of the cab panel as well as under the panels. These are visible when you fold the panels over. The D-rings allow you to anchor your panels down in incremental positions. If you want to drive your truck with your BakFlip cover completely open, a patented swiveling arm is integrated into the rail system. These swiveling arms rotate forward and prop the cover up. A specially designed sliding component allows you to lock the swiveling prop rods against the BakFlip cover. This allows you to drive at freeway speeds without any worry of the tonneau cover flying off the truck or vibrating loose.


Weights and measures of BakFlip covers:

BakFlip covers are available for almost all makes and models of domestic and international pickup trucks. Needless to say, BakFlip covers for long bed trucks are larger than BakFlip’s designed for small double cab pickup trucks. As such, some BakFlip’s ship in one box and some ship in two boxes. All BakFlip covers are comprised of 2 primary parts. 1. The actual folding top and 2. The tonneau cover rails. When the truck bed is shorter than 6’ the cover and rails always ship in one box. When the pickup truck bed is longer than 6’ e.g. a Full Size Short Bed Truck like a Ford F150 extended cab, it will ship in 2 boxes. One box for the cover and one for the rails. The average cover weighs approximately 50 lbs.
