Rundown: UnderCover Flex Tonneau Cover


Tonneau covers are one of the best ways to enhance your truck bed. They provide security for your cargo while protecting it from the elements, and increase the efficiency of your truck bed storage. If you are thinking about adding a Tonneau Cover to your truck, the UnderCover Flex is a product you must consider.

UnderCover Flex Tonneau Cover from Auto Truck Depot
The UnderCover Flex exceeds the competition for durability, functionality, and security. This cover is made for simplicity. There is absolutely no drilling necessary for installation, and once installed, removing it is easy. Unlike most other tonneau covers, the UnderCover Flex is made of a high quality FRP composite material that is lighter, stronger, and even more dent resistant than aluminum. If security is a consideration, this product has it.
The flex panels automatically latch to the covers mounting rails and the slam latch system secures your belongings when the tailgate is locked. The UnderCover Flex sits inside the bed rails, which include a rubber seal and drain tubes that carry water away from, and out of the truck bed--making this the most water resistant cover yet, and ensuring your cargo stays dry and protected.
Slam latches ensure your cargo is secure, and also allow for easy access from either side of your truck bed. The UnderCover Flex has three riding positions: full coverage, 3/4 coverage, and full bed access. The cover can be safely secured for driving in any of these positions with latch locks, and its unique prop rods keep the panels held out of the way for full truck bed access and maximum truck bed storage efficiency.

Choose Strong Truck Bed Covers for Superior Protection


When it comes to truck bed covers, the selection on the market today is virtually unlimited. There are covers made from all kinds of materials and that attach to your truck in a wide variety of different ways. Unfortunately, however, not all covers are created equally. While some covers are tough and built to stand the test of time, others wear out quickly, leaving you out the money you paid for them and possibly with damaged or lost cargo. Don’t let this happen to you; research your cover before you buy and make sure that you purchase from a reliable retailer, like Auto Truck Depot.

While the Depot offers many different covers, suitable to any budget and just about any truck, your best bet is to go with a hard tonneau cover. While covers made from soft materials can work, especially when you’re on a tight budget or just need something for a quick cargo-carrying trip, the harder models are made of more durable materials that offer you better protection. Soft covers, for example, can easily get oversaturated with rain or other moisture, eventually soaking through to your goods. With a hard truck bed cover, however, the rain or moisture just rolls right off, unable to penetrate the strong material.

For best results, choose a hard cover made from a super-strong material like aluminum. You can even buy covers crafted from the same kind of aluminum that’s used to build airplanes—now that’s a tough material! If you need a cover now and can’t afford one of the nicer models, don’t worry. You can always buy a cheaper one to get you through and then upgrade when the time is right.
