Hinged Tonneau Covers

Hinged tonneau covers are made of a heavier material (usually fiberglass), and are a one piece unlike folding tonneau covers. Hinged bed covers are available as a hard tonneau, like those offered by Undercover, or as a soft hinged tonneau. Hinged tonneaus are often equipped with gas struts - they are used to off-set the weight of the hinged tonneau when it is lifted. Soft hinged tonneaus usually come with snaps for extra security and stability.

Essential Factors to Consider When Buying Hinged Tonneau Covers

If you own a pickup truck, one of the first aftermarket accessories that you will want to invest in is a truck cover. Many truck enthusiasts will agree that having a bed cover for your truck is essential as it is useful for several reasons. Whether you use the bed of your pickup truck often or drive on the highway frequently, chances are that you will be able to greatly benefit from installing a truck bed cover to your vehicle.

When choosing between the many options that you have for truck Tonneau covers, you will likely have many styles and designs to choose from. For example, when choosing the material that you want for your Ford Tonneau covers or Toyota Tonneau covers, you will need to choose between a soft truck bed cover or a hard truck bed cover. A soft truck bed cover is durable enough and may be flexible enough to conform to certain cargo in your truck. A hard truck bed cover offers more protection and durability, but not as much flexibility as a soft truck bed cover. The tri-fold design for a truck bed cover is a favorite for many pickup truck owners as it allows easy access to the bed of the truck as well as protects cargo from various weather conditions. Retractable truck bed covers are also well-liked by a number of pickup truck owners as this offers the easiest access out of all truck bed cover designs.

While making the decision between soft bed covers and hard truck covers, determining what type of Tonneau bed covers are most suitable is important. Each type of truck bed cover offers its own advantages and features. The hard truck bed covers are ideal to get if you want the highest level of protection, but you will not be able to carry larger objects that are taller than the rails of your truck bed. A hard truck bed cover is not as flexible as other styles. With this in mind, the soft truck bed cover has the ability to allow easier access to the bed of your truck. Although the soft truck bed covers offer flexibility, they may not be the best option for security purposes. If you carry expensive tools and other cargo in the bed of your truck, the soft F150 Tonneau covers may not be the best option for your pickup truck.

Installing a truck bed cover to your pickup truck is one of the simplest ways to enhance your vehicle as well as improve your gas mileage at the same time. An open truck bed can be resulting in adding resistance to your vehicle while driving due to the improper airflow. Rather than remove the tailgate of your truck in order to reduce wind resistance, installing a truck bed cover seems like a much better option. In addition to improving the gas mileage of your vehicle, you will also be enhancing the exterior appearance of your vehicle as well with pickup Tonneau covers. Most truck bed covers are incredibly simple to install and have risen to become one of the most popular exterior accessories to install on pickup trucks.
