If you need to keep cargo out of sight, a Tacoma PRO Retractable Tonneaux Cover is the answer. This cover features heavy-grade vinyl on the upper and lower surfaces. This material is known for its scratch-resistant properties. It is also water and dust-resistant. The cover is easy to install, and you can do it yourself.
This cover features a dust seal that overlaps the tailgate, preventing dust from entering the cab. It is also known as a retractable tonneau cover, because it retracts and slides horizontally into the cab. There are two types of retractable tonneau covers: single-piece and dual-piece.
While retractable covers look cool and provide a modern function, they do have a hefty price tag. Therefore, it is important to compare products before making your purchase. It is important to look for heavy-duty construction, protection from thieves, and ease of operation.
Retractable covers are more durable than folding covers. They have a robust outer finish and rigid frame, making them able to withstand several hundred pounds of weight. Moreover, their matte finish prevents scratches. Both folding and retractable covers can protect your cargo from dust and moisture.
Retractable Tonneau Covers offer the same benefits as soft covers but have the added benefit of enhanced security. They are made of aluminum or ABS composite material, making them less vulnerable to theft. They also offer increased protection because thieves cannot get into your truck when closed. You can also lock the tailgate to increase the security of your bed.
A hard bed cover also protects cargo. Without a cover, potential thieves can see what’s in the bed of a truck and steal valuable items. A hard bed cover, on the other hand, creates a seamless surface and reduces air drag. Consequently, it improves your fuel-efficient performance. This is another reason to get a hard cover for your Tacoma.
The cover is simple to install. The installers only need a wrench or socket to install it. Generally, it takes 30 to 40 minutes. There are YouTube videos that walk you through the process. The cover can be installed in two positions, allowing you to use your bed entirely or partially.
