Roll-N-Lock’s got a line of “best-of-both-worlds” truck bed covers that combine the versatility of a removable/folding cover with the security of a rigid, locking cover.
That’s because Roll-N-Lock‘s tonneau covers are composed of tough aluminum slats that retract into a receptacle at the end of the truck bed. That means when you want to protect your cargo from Mother Nature or prying eyes, you can simply extend the bed cover across the cargo box.
Then, when it’s time to haul something big (like a Sousaphone or ostrich cart), you just retract the panels toward the truck cab.
You can also position the cover at any place along its track for partial coverage, if needed.
Did we say best-of-both-worlds already? We did. Sorry.
The whole process takes a matter of seconds, and doesn’t involve cumbersome tie-downs, awkward hardware, or difficult restraints.
The covers feature integrated locks for security, and rain channels to properly drain water.
Each Roll-N-Lock bed cover installs with a series of sturdy clamps, with no drilling or modifications to the truck box.
Roll-N-Lock’s tonneau covers come in two basic flavors, but they both work the same way.
The A-Series has the aluminum panels exposed for a sleek, utilitarian vibe.
The M-Series features a vinyl cover over the aluminum panels to deliver the appearance of a traditional soft cover.
There’s also an E-Series, which has a similar matte-black finish as the the A-Series, but boasts an electronic motor for hands-free operation. Simply press a button on the included key fob, and your Roll-N-Lock E-Series cover will retract and extend automatically.
They’re available for most popular truck models in a variety of bed/cab configurations.
