Is the cover waterproof?
The cover is weather resistant, utilizing rail channels and drain tubes to move water away from the bed. Ultimately, no retracting or hinged cover is completely waterproof as there are tailgate gaps and other areas that may allow some intrusion.
What is the install time?
The cover can usually be installed in about 45 minutes.
Can I drive with the cover in the opened, hinged position?
No. When in the open position, road elements and condition will put added stress on the lift assist arms and gas props which could result in damage to your truck and cover.
Can I drive with the cover in the opened, retracted position?
Yes. The front canister design allows for the cover to be fully retracted and open while your truck is in motion.
Does the cover require the bed of my truck to be drilled into when installing?
No. The cover utilizes clamps and a no-drill installation.
Is the cover compatible with my bedliner?
Yes. The cover will work with BedRug, spray-ins and any under the rail bed liner. DoubleCover is also compatible with many aftermarket bed caps.
How should I care for my cover?
- When washing use a soft non-colored cloth or sponge, fresh cool water in the summer and warm water in the winter. For heavily soiled surfaces use a mild liquid soap specially designed for automobiles.
- Do not use aggressive cleaning agents such as strong organic solvent or strongly alkaline detergent.
- Brush off snow and ice. Do not use a scraper on the cover.
- Lubricate all locks and moving locking parts with lithium grease. Lithium-based spray lubricants are well suited to this application and will not attract dirt and grime buildup. Do not use penetrating oils in the lock cylinders unless you follow up with lithium grease.
- Do not use any lubricants or solvent cleaners on the shafts of the gas struts. If necessary, clean them with water only.
