Hey, I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you my detailed review and breakdown of Barricade's Hidden Snap Tonneau Cover, fitting the 2004 through 2014 F-150, with a six and a half foot bed. So this detailed review's gonna cover everything from the construction and materials used with this cover, what this is gonna do to the backend of your truck in terms of the look, the functionality. We're gonna hit the pricing real quick and then I'm gonna walk you through the installation, which I'm gonna be giving a very easy 1 out of 3 wrenches on the difficulty meter, in about a 20-minute job and I'm gonna show you exactly how, coming up later.So the Barricade Hidden Snap Tonneau Cover that I have here today should definitely appeal to the '04 through '14 F-150 owners looking to get into hands-down, one of the most affordable and inexpensive tonneau covers at the time of shooting this video, but one that's gonna offer a very unique setup, as this is gonna have a hidden snap design, which isn't gonna be a trifold or a hinge setup. Now, if you're watching this video, chances are you're probably shopping for a tonneau cover. If you're not quite sure what this is gonna do for your truck or what some of the benefits are, I'm gonna tell you right now. First and foremost this is gonna be to cover your bed and make sure that whatever you're hauling, be it camping gear, tools, any kinda personal items, are gonna be protected from the weather, be it rain, sleet, or snow, as well as prying eyes.So aside from the functionality of a tonneau cover which again, I honestly think just completes the rear-end of the bed, it looks a lot much more streamlined as well as protecting your gear and anything you're gonna be hauling. Something I really like about this in comparison to other covers out there, is gonna be the fact that this is gonna be a roll-up design and one that's gonna have hidden snaps underneath, or on the bed rails, which you're not gonna see. Now, something that's really cool about this tonneau cover like most, if not all out there, but something that's really easy to operate is the fact that, if you're running on the road and you're really needing to get in the back of your truck quick, on the side of the highway, for example, it's literally as easy as getting out of your truck and then just pulling up onto the snaps to retrieve whatever your after.But looks and functionality aside, it's been widely argued that tonneau covers have a tendency to reduce your drag coefficient, which in turn means that you're gonna be spending less at the fuel pump. Now let's face facts here, if you bought an F-150, it probably wasn't for the stellar gas mileage and it's just something to keep in the back of your head when shopping for any tonneau cover, as most, if not all brands out there will say that it's gonna help you save a couple bucks at the pump.All right, so at this point we went over the looks, we went over the functionality, and we even covered a controversial point about this helping it save gas with your truck, which again, I'll argue that every other day. But what I'm really more interested in, here again, is gonna be the design and the orientation and having a similar setup on my own truck. I can attest to the fact of just how convenient and usable it is, say if I'm down at the hardware store and if I really quickly need to fold this back, or roll it back up, I can throw a two by four in there, or anything else that I'm gonna need to situate the cover to accommodate that wider load. Now, looking closer, Barricade's gonna be utilizing a heavy duty vinyl-like material. It almost kinda feels like a tarp in my hands here, but that much cleaner and better feeling, but at the end of the day, this is going to be something to protect your gear, tools, or anything else that you're gonna be hauling, from any type of elements be it, rain, sleet, or snow, or hell, just leaving your truck out and letting it bake in the sun. It's not

TruShield Hidden Snap Tonneau Cover
Hey there Everyone, I have to say when I was searching for a Tonneau cover for my truck bed it didn't take me long to decide to choose this TruShield. It was very nice and I loved how it looked in all the pics they showed for it. After I received the cover the instructions were very easy to understand and took less than an hour to install and it is a great price for what your getting :) Now that it is on my truck it looks better in person than I thought it would. I love it :) I give this cover thumbs up and recommend it to everyone interested in buying a Tonneau cover. Thanks, John :)Helpful (0)

Beyond happy with this purchase.
I have always wanted to get a cover for the bed of my truck but did not have a lot of spare cash since I am a college student. I have all heard good things about Tonneau covers so I am happy that American Trucks could provide the one I want for so cheap. I hope to get more parts in the future as I continue to save!Helpful (0)

Great product for the price
Pretty good product. Installation was a breeze. A couple of the hidden snaps were cracked when it arrived but doesnt affect operation too badly. Not bad for the price. 99.00 specialHelpful (2)

This is terrible
Not as advertised. Doesn't lock the back of your truck with the snaps. The was an extremely tight fit, even though I had the frame assembled correctly. Impossible to stretch the cover by myself. Directions were not very good either. You have to remove bars in the center and the rear bar if you're rolling up the cover, and when the cover is rolled up it cannot be stored on the truck according to the directions because the snaps can't hold it at speed. Overall poor design and disappointing to say the least.Helpful (2)

Cover seems pretty well build but a very tight fit. Best bet is to put it on during a warmer day in the sun so the tarp stretches a bit.Helpful (3)

Great product easy install. Had ugly weather lately and it does the job.Helpful (3)
are the contents of the bed accessible from the cover if the tailgate is locked? Or does the tailgate need to be opened in order to release the covers snaps?
This tonneau cover will still be able to be opened with the tailgate locked, however it will be more difficult than with the tailgate open.
Can it fit the 2002 Ford F-150
Unfortunately this cover will not fit a 2002 F-150 model.
