In this article, I will show you the first steps to attaching a tonneau cover. In this example, we’ll be using a Ford F-350, but the same basic rules apply for most trucks. Your closing will likely come with a manual, and you’ll want to take a look, too. The first thing you will want to do is remove the covers and accessories from the package. You want to make sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions when doing this. You may also want to use a soft cloth to keep the rolled top from moving back and forth while in the container. Connect the locking arm to the bottom of the tonneau grip. Once you install it, the lock should reach over to the edge to lock the top. You can test a key using a key to make sure it works. Additionally, if you need to buy another tonneau cover, you can go to the tonneau factory outlet.
Now you want to take the canister and place it on the track rails. Place it in the area you want, but make sure you don’t connect it now. Remove the side ducts and other stuff from the packaging to make sure it is the correct length and will fit on the side rails. When you unroll the cover, it moves back into the channel attached to the truck’s side rail.
If the line is too long, you may need to cut out the parts you don’t need. Once you’ve installed it, you want to make sure the tailgate has enough room to cover. You will need to mark the points on the rails where you will place the screws. You can add a clamp to the track when you take measurements to ensure accuracy. Grease pencils can be used to mark locations. After this, you will want to remove the clamps and get ready to drill holes. Make sure you drill it in the correct location.
After this, you will want to attach the tracks to the truck bed rails. You have to use screws for this. These are the basic steps for installing a tonneau cover and should give you a good idea of what you need to do.
