5 Benefits of Folding Tonneau Covers

When it comes to choosing truck bed protection, folding tonneau covers seem to check all the boxes – providing lock-tight security when you’re on the go and convenient access to your gear when it’s time to get to work. Finding the perfect tonneau cover for your truck doesn’t have to be a hassle. Read on to learn what makes a folding cover the right fit.

1. Easy to Install & Remove

Folding tonneau covers are designed to install quickly – a one man job at that – keeping the contents of your truck bed secure without slowing you down. Whether you use your truck for work or play, the time will come when you need to roll without your bed protection. When that’s the case, simply unhook the latches, pull the cover off and go.

2. Soft & Hard Options

You have a multitude of options when it comes to folding covers, and a hard or soft cover is one of the biggest. Soft covers provide excellent, affordable bed coverage while hard folding tonneaus provide an extra level of protection – they can resist against cutting. Both are locked securely shut when your tailgate is, are supported by heavy-duty frames and provide a smooth black topper to your bed.

3. Single-Handed Opening & Closing

While defending your expensive equipment is a top priority, ease of use is a close second. Enter the folding tonneau cover. Panels are quick to prop open single-handedly and durable leak–proof hinges ensure your truck bed and everything inside stays nice and dry. To keep your cover securely shut, simply close and lock your tailgate.

4. Customizable Truck Bed Access

Most folding tonneau covers feature a low-profile tri-fold design that offers convenient access to both the front and back of your truck bed. But if tri-fold isn’t your style, there are plenty of other options to be had. Options like bi-fold and toolbox tonneaus provide the ultimate in versatility.

5. Compatible with Truck Bed Accessories

Sometimes, protecting the contents of your truck bed takes more than just a tonneau cover. Additional accessories like truck bed liners offer a layer of defense for your gear while keeping your truck bed damage-free. While other types of tonneaus sometimes don't accommodate truck bed liners and other accessories, the design of folding tonneau covers almost always allows for the addition of tailgate seals, lighting systems, bed rails and more.
