Keeping Gear Safe With Roll N Locks

It’s been called the only bad thing about owning a truck: security. While the bed of a truck makes it one of the most versatile machines on the planet, it also makes it a target for thieves who see “easy pickings” from the back of your vehicle. Unlike a car or SUV, truck owners do not have the option of putting valuables in the trunk.

For years, site workers and contractors were forced to buy panel vans to keep their gear safe from criminals. Unless your name is Matt Foley from Saturday Night Live and you like sleeping in a van down by the river, you know that there is nothing cool about owning a van.

Now, there is a sweet compromise between leaving your gear in the bed of your truck and buying a dorky vehicle like a work van. Roll N Lock Tonneau Covers are a complete rolling cover that protects the bed of your vehicle from the elements while keeping your gear safe under a lock and key.

The Toughest Tonneau Cover

At 4WheelOnline, we are one of the biggest suppliers for aftermarket tonneau covers, so trust us when we say that all covers are not built the same. When it comes to differentiating tonneau covers, it essentially boils down to the materials used and the time it took to build each one.
Tonneau covers are important, they should lock as well.
The first Roll N Lock tonneau covers were made from hurricane shutters, so you better believe that the company took a special interest in making these some of the toughest covers available. Today, the Roll N Lock covers don’t use hurricane shutters anymore, but the same “quick foldout” design is used on all of their products to create a cover that can be opened within seconds.

According to their Web site, Roll-N-Lock is a privately owned manufacturing firm established in 1992 by the staff of Solaroll Shade and Shutter Corporation, a leading manufacturer hurricane and storm shutters since 1974. Today, the products manufactured at Roll-N-Lock’s Pompano Beach facility and are exported to countries all over the world.

“Roll-N-Lock Corporation has long been the industry leader in retractable tonneau cover technology and is the birthplace of almost all product innovations within this field,” says a spokesperson for the company. “It is this vision, coupled with our continuing commitment to quality, that has made Roll-N-Lock the fastest growing producer of retractable truck bed covers in the world.”
