Hey, guys. It's Sara with americantrucks.com and today we have a review and install of the Extang EnCore Hard Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover fitting your '19 and newer Chevy Silverado 1500s with a standard or short bed. This is perfect for the Silverado owner who wants the security of a hardcover but also the benefits of a tri-fold giving them quick and easy access to their entire bed.This tonneau also features a self-latching mechanism with a programmable lock allowing you access to the very front compartment of your bed while still maintaining safety and security. This tonneau is constructed from one inch thick EnduroShield panels with a mat black finish. This tonneau can be operated in any position because it locks in place unfolding to securely cover your bed and folding away in seconds to accommodate larger cargo.So one thing I do wanna point out with this cover is that unlike other tri-folds, it doesn't fold all the way up to your back window. And this can be good and bad because while it doesn't block the back window, you do lose a bit of space at the very front of your bed with this particular cover. Now they do this because it has one really cool feature, that locks and opens right at the front of your bed to allow you access without having to fold your cover all the way up.So as far as price goes, this one comes in at around $950 which is middle to the high end pricewise when compared to other covers and pretty on par with other tri-folds. Now for your money you are getting the unique features of this tri-fold as well as the design and security of a hardcover. I'm giving this install one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It does feature a direct bolt up installation but you may want a friend for this install. Either way, it can be done in approximately 30 minutes. So with that said, let's jump right into our install.For this install you will need a ratchet and a 13 millimeter socket. All right, so the first step in our install is to grab the rail and place it on top of the bed of your truck. They've included this piece of foam and this is sort of a shim just to get an idea of how far off the bulkhead you have to place it. Tuck the foam over the first post and measure the rail just to where this foam hits the very back of the bed. Hold the rail in place and you can remove the foam at this point. Grab your first clamp. You're gonna place it over the first clamping location. There should be a sticker but you're aiming for the very front part of the rail at the very front of the bed. Place the clamp over the rail. And with a 13 millimeter socket tighten it down. Moving on to the second clamping location, this should be right underneath this post here. And again, there's another sticker right on the rail. Try to get it up as high as you can so you get a good grip on the bed of the truck. Grab a 13 millimeter socket and tighten it down. Now for the final clamping location, this one should be towards the back of the bed. Repeat that process on the other side.All right. At this point, you're gonna attach the drains for the rails. They just pop on this here on the bottom. Now you can either run this to the small hole in your bed. You will have to drill this out a little bit to fit the other end in or somewhere else, anywhere that will drain the water out of your bed and away from your truck.All right, so you wanna set the tonneau cover vertically over top of these two posts so they catch on these hooks on the front and back. You may want a friend for this step. Now you can unfold the tonneau. And make sure that it clicks on the rails. Double-check that your cover latches properly everywhere. If not, you may have to make some minor adjustments to make sure that it's secure. Unclip the back portion. Now you have to secure these two yellow straps right down here to these posts. Make sure they're clipped. Now you can unfold your cover. And close your tailgate.All right. So that's gonna do it for the review and install of this tri-fold tonneau cover. Remember, for all things Silverado, keep it at americantrucks.com.
