Do not attempt to drive with your cover in the open position or tie down your cover while in the open position. When hauling material that is taller than the truck bed height, you should remove the cover, store it, and then properly haul oversized material.

This type of damage is not considered a manufacturer defect. Always read the ingredients of any product you are using to clean your UnderCover tonneau. Use only products that are safe for use with plastics. Many chemicals contain material that will permanently discolor your tonneau. This is not considered a manufacturer defect.

Paint wear to the truck’s bed can happen with the use of any truck bed cover, and is the sole responsibility of the truck owner. Materials such as 3M Scotchgard™ or other clear paint protective films may be used to help prevent possible paint damage. Ask your dealer for other recommendations. Paint damage to your truck is not covered under this warranty. When in the closed position, your tonneau must be locked and the tailgate must be closed.
