The Personal Caddy is still a quick installation. Simply mark the height of the T-Nut in the Front Striker Bracket and use a piece of tape to prevent the T-Nut from falling out of the bottom of the Striker Bracket. Remove the Striker Bolts, then, with an assistant, lower the Personal Caddy into the compartment while keeping it as level as possible. After that, reinstall the Striker bolts at their proper height and you should be all set.

In addition to the release of the Personal Caddy is a new Installation Overview Video for the 2015 Ford F-150. You can watch the video on the Steffens Automotive Youtube Channel now.

There is a new and improved installation method for the G4 Elite on the new F-150 that no longer requires access through the stake hole pockets. This means that the installation is a fully clamp-on installation with no modification to the plastic bed rail protectors needed. Steffens Automotive, also, pre-installs all of the weather seals on the covers so there is no longer a temperature requirement when installing the product. Additionally, the Center Latch catch has been integrated into the Windseal Rail assemblies, which removes an entire step from the installation process. That makes the install one of the fastest ever for a G4 Elite.

Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite and Personal Caddy Now Available for New 2015 GM Colorado & Canyon

November 19th, 2014

The Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite and Personal Caddy are now available for the All New Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon in both bed sizes. This is the first time that a Personal Caddy will be made available for a mid-size truck. The G4 Elite and Personal Caddy are both currently available to order on the Fold-a-Cover Factory Store website.

Steffens Automotive has updated the G4 Elite for the Colorado & Canyon to the clamp-on installation method used on the G4 Elite for the new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. So, there’s no drilling required and no need for access to the stake holes for installation. As with the G4 Elite for the new Silverado & Sierra, the weather seals will come pre-installed and the Center Latch Catch has been integrated into the Windseal Rail Assemblies. Plus, the no-drill installation makes alignment easier than ever by using existing holes in the truck bed. Additionally, the rear stake hole is left open to be used as a handhold for the Step-Bumper that is a stock addition to all Colorado and Canyon trucks.

As mentioned, this is the first time Steffens Automotive will be offering a Personal Caddy for a mid-size truck. The Personal Caddy’s installation process is very simple and takes only a few minutes. The Personal Caddy fully integrates with the G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover and sits below the front panel of the cover. This keeps it concealed and makes it independently lockable from the rest of the truck bed making it the perfect spot to store expensive tools or items that shouldn’t be rolling around in the bed of the truck. Unfortunately, due to the limited size of the truck bed on the Colorado & Canyon, the optional sliding aluminum tray will not be made available.

The installation method for the G4 Elite on the Colorado and Canyon is very similar to the installation on a Silverado or Sierra. So, check out the attached video to get an idea of what the installation entails:

Fold-a-Cover Installation Videos

August 18th, 2014

2 New Fold-a-Cover Videos Created to Support the Installation Process

We recently developed two new videos to assist in the installation process: A Blade Seal Installation video and a Latch Timing Adjustments video. These videos were developed in the R&D Lab here at the Fold-a-Cover manufacturing facility in Caledonia, MI. The purpose of the videos is to give a more in depth look into the installation process by showcasing a few of the more important aspects. Check out the videos, along with a brief description below. These videos can always be found here: http://www.foldacover.com/photos-and-video/installation-videos/

 

Fold-a-Cover Blade Seal Installation Overview


This video walks you through the process of installing a Blade Seal on a G4 Elite tonneau cover. The great thing about this video is that the process for installing all of the Fold-a-Cover seals is the same. So, even though this video is specific to the Blade Seal you can use this video to install a Bulb Seal or the L-Seal with no issue.

The key to remember when installing a blade/bulb/L Seal is that the adhesive used is both temperature and pressure sensitive. This means that it’s going to be extremely important that you install the seal at or above 70º F AND that you use at least 15 lbs. of pressure across the full length and width of the adhesive. Using pressure to install the seal is the most important aspect of the seal installation process. We recommend using a roller of some type, but you can also use the rounded box-end of a wrench to apply the pressure. If you do use a wrench be sure to treat the underside of the seal with Armor All to reduce friction between the seal the wrench.

Once the new seal is installed, treat it with Armor All. This will reduce friction between the seal the your truck bed/tailgate allowing the seal to more easily slide into place and learn its new position.

 

Latch Timing Adjustments Video – Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite

In  this video, we walk you through the process of making adjustments to the latch timing on a G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover. The latch cable that needs to be timed is specific to the G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover. Latch Timing is one of the final steps in the installation process, but it can make a big difference when it comes to the opening and closing of the panels of your tonneau cover. If your latch is timed too tight, then even a slight pressure could cause the latches to snap open. Conversely, if the latch timing is too loose, you won’t be able to use the lift handle to open the tonneau cover.

 

More Fold-a-Cover Support Videos On The Way!

We’re committed to creating a full lineup of videos to assist with the installation process. We have received lots of positive feedback on the videos and we’ve heard your requests for more videos. If you’d like to see a specific video created, just let us know. We’re always open to new ideas!

Update to Tacoma G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover Installation Guide

September 25th, 2013

Thank You!

We would like to extend a big thank you to our customers for providing feedback, both positive and negative. We have utilized this feedback to improve not just our product but also the installation instructions for our products. At Steffens Automotive, we are committed to quality and we know that sometimes the best source of knowledge for improving quality is you, the customer.

 

Updates to Toyota Tacoma Install

It is with this customer feedback that we have made updates to the current G4 Elite installation process on the current model year Toyota Tacoma. It was pointed out that our installation instructions for the G4 Elite had incorrectly identified the front and rear striker clamp brackets (Parts Z and AA). We have corrected the issue and are taking steps to ensure that all new Toyota Tacoma G4 Elites are delivered with the updated instructions. We’ll also be uploading the new instructions to our Installation Guide download area on SteffensAutomotive.com. Check out all of our Install Guides here.

FootmansLoop

We also added a note to the installation instructions pointing out that the Footman’s Loop installation is optional if the truck already possesses a locking tailgate. No need to drill holes in your tailgate for a Footman’s Loop that is not necessary.

 

 

 

Coming Soon…

A new G4 Elite Installation Overview Video on a Toyota Tacoma! The new video will be highlighting the updates to the installation process as well as providing our first look at install of a G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover on a Toyota Tacoma using the factory installed track system. We’ll be uploading the new installation video to our Steffens Automotive YouTube page very soon!

Update to Tacoma G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover Installation Guide

September 25th, 2013

Thank You!

We would like to extend a big thank you to our customers for providing feedback, both positive and negative. We have utilized this feedback to improve not just our product but also the installation instructions for our products. At Steffens Automotive, we are committed to quality and we know that sometimes the best source of knowledge for improving quality is you, the customer.

 

Updates to Toyota Tacoma Install

It is with this customer feedback that we have made updates to the current G4 Elite installation process on the current model year Toyota Tacoma. It was pointed out that our installation instructions for the G4 Elite had incorrectly identified the front and rear striker clamp brackets (Parts Z and AA). We have corrected the issue and are taking steps to ensure that all new Toyota Tacoma G4 Elites are delivered with the updated instructions. We’ll also be uploading the new instructions to our Installation Guide download area on SteffensAutomotive.com. Check out all of our Install Guides here.

FootmansLoop

We also added a note to the installation instructions pointing out that the Footman’s Loop installation is optional if the truck already possesses a locking tailgate. No need to drill holes in your tailgate for a Footman’s Loop that is not necessary.

Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite and Personal Caddy Now Available for 2014 GM Silverado and Sierra

August 27th, 2013

Our Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite and Personal Caddy are available for the new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2014 GMC Sierra 1500. Currently, the G4 Elite is only available for the 5’6” and 6’6” box lengths due to GM’s staged release of the new trucks. Covers for the 8? boxes are in development and will be ready when 8? boxes become available from GM.

We recently had a brand new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab in our Research and Development lab to install a Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite and Personal Caddy. The purpose of the install was to highlight the updated installation process which has been streamlined with the new 2014 GM models.

With the updated installation process, alignment of the Wind Seal Rails has been simplified. By inserting a Well-Nut into existing holes near the tailgate of the truck, getting the Wind Seal Rails in the correct position is easier than ever and, because the cover utilizes existing holes this is a no-drill installation. Additionally, the Center Latch and Weather Seals now come pre-installed, removing multiple steps from the installation process. The rear stake pockets have been left open by design to be used as a handle when stepping up into the truck bed. And lastly, the front striker clamp brackets no longer utilize the front stake pockets but simply clamp directly onto the truck bed rails.

The video also highlights installation of our Personal Caddy, a companion cargo management system that works in tandem with the G4 Elite hard folding tonneau cover. The Personal Caddy’s installation process is very simple and takes only a few minutes. The Personal Caddy fully integrates with our G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover and sits below the front panel of the cover. This keeps it concealed and makes it independently lockable from the rest of the truck bed making it the perfect spot to store expensive tools or items you don’t want rolling around in the bed of the truck. The Personal Caddy can store up to 10.3 cubic feet depending on the application, and comes with an optional aluminum sliding tray for an added level of organization.

Pickup Trucks Top List of Most Insurance Claims for Theft

July 29th, 2013

According to a recent report from the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI), the Ford F-250 Super Duty crew-cab is a new favorite target for thieves. It’s not surprising, seeing that 5 of the top 10 vehicles targeted by thieves, based on number of insurance claims, are pickups. The other pickups on the list include the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 crew-cab, GMC Sierra 1500 crew-cab, Ford F-350 crew-cab and the GMC Sierra 1500 extended cab (full list available at end of article).

The HLDI does not distinguish between thefts from within the vehicle or theft of the entire vehicle, and the average amount paid by the insurance company for these trucks is much lower than the total value of the truck. This means that while trucks are targeted more often, thieves are going after cargo and not stealing the entire truck. This is a major issue for those who use their trucks for work applications, like contractors or construction workers, who are putting their valuable tools in their truck beds.

That’s not great news if you’re a truck owner. However, the good news is that Fold-a-Cover tonneau solutions provide total cargo security from theft. Both our G4 Elite and LS Series models are the ONLY hard-folding tonneau covers that truly secure the cargo area and the tailgate with no extra tailgate lock needed!

Also, our Personal Caddy for the G4 Elite models is a great solution for keeping tools safe from theft and from water damage. The Personal Caddy provides an added level of storage to your truck bed and also an added level of security because the front panel of the cover can be locked independently. So, you can give someone access to your truck bed without giving them access to your Personal Caddy; a huge plus for those in construction who need to use the truck bed but don’t want to put their tools at risk. In addition, the Personal Caddy, when installed, is completely hidden from view beneath the tonneau cover so, the crooks won’t even know it’s there.

Don’t be a victim to thieves targeting your cargo area! Fold-a-Cover tonneau solutions and the Personal Caddy will keep your cargo safe and away from the elements while giving you easy access to your entire truck bed.

How to Properly Operate a Fold-a-Cover

July 11th, 2013

Proper operation of a Fold-a-Cover is important to ensure you will not possibly cause damage to your cover or vehicle while in use.

Here are the proper opening and closing steps when using a Fold-a-Cover:

  1. To open the cover lift the latch, release handle and open the rear panel to the fully open position
  2. To insure proper operation of the center latch mechanism always open and fold the rear panel of the cover to its fully open position before stating any folding motion of the second or third panels of the cover
  3. Continue the opening sequence by folding the second and third panels to the fully open position
  4. With the cover in the fully open and stacked position secure all three docking straps. It is important to have the docking straps secure at all times when the cover is in the fully open position.
  5. To close the cover, reverse the steps above making sure that you close the rear panel last.

NOTE: Only operate your vehicle with the cover in the closed and latched position or the fully open position with ALL three docking straps securely fastened. Operation of the vehicle with the cover in a partially open position can cause severe damage to the cover and possibly the vehicle.

The two positions for the Fold-a-Cover that we advise to operate your vehicle in:

Fully Open Position
Fully Closed Position

Here is an example of how NOT to use your Fold-a-Cover:

Fold-a-Cover Tonneau Covers for the 2014 GM Trucks

June 20th, 2013

We are hard at work putting the finishing touches our tonneau covers for the 2014 GM trucks. Right now we are on schedule to have our G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover and Personal Caddy available for the new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra when they hit the show room floors sometime this summer. The new body style gave us the opportunity to change up the installation process a bit as we needed to update components of our covers to fit properly with the newly placed factory truck bed holes and stake pockets. This opportunity allowed us to simplify the installation process.

One thing we did with this particular model is we replaced the center latch bracket with a pre-installed metal plate on the windseal rails. This will cut out one whole step of the installation process. The next thing we did is we made both striker clamp assemblies a little easier to install by having them bolt onto the windseal rail before placing them on the truck. This calls for less adjustments to be made to the windseal rails when doing the fit up at the end of the installation.

All the things we have changed on our tonneau covers for the 2014 GM trucks will help reduce the installation time of our G4 Elite model. Keep an eye our for pictures of our cover installed on a new truck once they are available!

Midyear Pickup Truck Body Style Changes

May 22nd, 2013

Every once in a while a truck manufacturer will change their pickup trucks body style  mid-way through the production year. When the body style of a truck changes, typically there are also some changes made to the box of the truck in terms of shape and where the stake pockets or factory holes maybe located. This is important to note when ordering a Fold-a-Cover product as we design our tonneau covers and Personal Caddys specifically for each application.

The most well known of these mid-year body style changes is with the 2007 Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra.

The 1997-2007 body style for both the Silverado and Sierra are reffered to as the ‘Silverado/Sierra Classic’. You may also see them referred to as the NBS (New Body Style) or gmt800 Silverado/Sierra. Mid-way through 2007 General Motors updated their trucks to the current body style which has stayed the same from 2007-2013. This body style simply goes by ‘Silverado/Sierra’, you may also see them referred to as NNBS (New New Body Style) or gmt900 ‘Silverado/Sierra’.

The next body style change is less commonly known as there is no official name for the body change. However, over the years we have run into some customers who have had a 2002 Ram 1500 with an old body style and some customers who have had a 2002 Ram 1500 with a new body style. We put the graphic below together to help differentiate between the new/old body style the best we could.

Using Fold-a-Cover with Rail Caps and Bed Liners

May 1st, 2013

One question that commonly comes to us through email or phone calls is whether or not our tonneau covers work with factory bed rail caps or any kind of bed liner such as drop in or spray in bed liners. The answer is yes, both our G4 Elite and LS Series Fold-a-Cover work with bed rail caps and bed liners.

The only stipulation to this is that the majority or covers utilize the stake pocket holes to mount our windseal rails to the bed of the truck. This means that you will need access to the stake pockets if your truck comes equipped with them. If you do not have stake pocket holes we do have a clamp-on mounting system for most G4 Elite covers. You can read more about it in our previous blog post ‘All current model year application G4 Elite Fold-a-Covers no longer require drilling to install’

If you have plastic bed rail caps there are two things you may need to do.

  1. Most factory bed rail caps have ‘pop-out’ caps that cover the stake pocket holes. These will simply need to be removed.
  2. Some bed rail caps do not have ‘pop-out’ caps and if you have stake pockets you will need to access to them. This can be done using a dremel or drill to open the stake pocket holes.

If you have a drop in or spray in bed liner there are a few things you may need to do.

  1. Again, you will need access to the stake pocket holes in most cases so some trimming of the bed liner may be required if it interferes with proper installation.
  2. The G4 Elite uses many factory holes in the truck bed to mount the hardware required to use the tonneau cover. If the spray in or drop in bed liner is blocking any of these holes, they will need to be cleared out as well.

It is important to make sure your Fold-a-Cover hard folding tonneau cover fits properly to ensure proper function and maximize its ability to keep the elements out of your truck bed.

This is a G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover installed a on 2012 Ram 1500 with a spray in bed liner.

Fold-a-Cover Security Functions

April 25th, 2013

We know that many companies do not offer a locking tailgate standard on their pickup trucks and that if you are purchasing a hard folding tonneau cover like our G4 Elite and LS Series, that security is important to you.

That is why, when you purchase your tonneau cover from our Factory Store there is a metal tab installed on the rear panel of the cover if your truck does not come standard with a locking tailgate. This tab will slide into a footmans loop or lock plate (which are included in the hardware kit) when installed properly. This will prevent anyone from from being able to access your tailgate while the tonneau cover is closed. This, along with a keyed lock on each end of the tonneau cover, will give you an extra sense of security.

Fold-a-Cover Hard Folding Tonneau Cover

Shown in the picture is the lock plate which comes with any full-size GM model truck. All other trucks that do not come standard with a locking tailgate will receive a footmans loop that will function the same.

Tips for keeping your Fold-a-Cover in good working condition

April 17th, 2013

Just like the paint on your vehicle, care needs to be taken to keep your Fold-a-Cover looking its best and working properly.  We recommend a product called 303. It is an Aerospace Protectant that will help protect the rubber seals on your tonneau cover from becoming dried and cracked due to  UV rays and can be purchased directly from their website at www.303products.com.

It is  important to keep all rubber material on your tonneau cover conditioned to maximize its ability to eliminate as much moisture as possible from your cargo area.  303’s Aerospace Protectant is designed to do this. We recommend using it on  the hinge seals, blade seals and bulb seals. It will help prevent these seals from drying and cracking over time. A good rule of thumb would be to apply the protectant every time you change the oil in your truck.

030350-ap-32oz

If you are looking for a product to apply directly to the panels, to add an additional protective coating to the powder coated finish, the best option is a liquid wax product (paste type waxes will not apply properly to the textured finish).  Another option would be adding the “wax” option in automated car washes. These basic maintenance steps performed every 3 months will keep your Fold-a-Cover looking and working great for years to come

Note: Any automotive grade rubber conditioner will work as well, however, we have heard the best results from those who have used 303’s product.

Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite Works with Most Cargo Rails and Track Systems

April 3rd, 2013

Cargo management systems are a feature that many truck owners love. They allow for a variety of accessories to be added to the truck bed as well as help keep the bed of the truck organized. One issue with cargo management systems is some tonneau covers require these to be removed to install the cover. With the G4 Elite, in most cases, we have designed the installation to either allow use of the full cargo management rails or at least the majority of the rail systems.

Silverado Cargo Management System

Here is a list of current model year applications that, if equipped,  allow for all or most of the use of the factory rail system.

  • Chevorlet Silverado
  • GMC Sierra
  • Dodge Dakota
  • Nissan Titan (removing the front section of of track is required)
  • Toyota Tundra
  • Toyota Tacoma

Tips for proper weather seal installation

March 14th, 2013

To properly install the weather stripping on either the G4 Elite or the LS Series be sure to:

  1. Complete the installation in an area that is no lower then 70°F to ensure that full adhesion takes place – if this is not possible, use a heat gun to heat both the panel and the seal before and during installation.
  2. Clean the area of the cover where the weather strip will adhere with isopropyl or denatured alcohol to ensure it is free from oil and dirt
  3. Apply the adhesion promoter to the contact surface of the panel. Allow 1-2 minutes to dry.
  4. Remove a small section of the red backing and begin applying the weather seal to the panel.
  5. Once completely attached, apply pressure along the length of the of the weather strip with a roller or box end of a wrench to ensure even transfer of all adhesive.
  6. Trim the ends of the seal if necessary.

This short clip from our G4 Elite installation video will show you visually how to properly install the weather strip.

A concern that some customers have is how the weather strip sits on the tailgate immediately after installation. It may bunch up or not slide well over the tailgate, especially if you have a plastic tailgate cap.  This happens because the weather strips are manufactured to have a very sharp angle to prevent most water, dust, and other elements from getting into your truck bed.

After a day or two of having your new Fold-a-Cover installed this will correct itself as the seal adjusts itself to your tailgate. There are, however, a couple options we recommend to help the weather strip fall correctly into place.

  1. If it bunches up, run your thumb under the seal to make sure it lays flat until it has adjusted itself.
  2. We also recommend using some Armor All or 303 Protectant and wiping down the underside of theweather strip. This will make them slick so the weather strip won’t get caught up on the ridges of the tailgate.
  3. If possible, let your truck sit out in the sun for the first day. The heat will help form the weather strip to your truck.

Unique Fold-a-Cover Benefits

March 6th, 2013

One unique benefit of the Fold-a-Cover is its ability to open without having to first open the tailgate. This is a feature that most other hard folding tonneau covers do not offer. This situation, that many people probably face, came to our attention through a customer who wrote a review about our G4 Elite he recently purchased. This particular customer had a larger Ford F-150 Raptor that he typically backed into his garage. Because of the trucks size it just fit into his garage and left very little room around the front and rear of the truck which made it impossible to open the tailgate while the truck is parked inside. Luckily, the Fold-a-Cover allowed him to still have access to his truck bed do to its ability to open without having to open the tailgate.

I back into my garage. The Raptor barely fits, but it fits. The G4 allows me to open the cover without dropping the tailgate… something I physically can’t do with my truck backed in and the garage door closed. I couldn’t do it even if I pulled head first in with the door closed either, so it’s a good thing no matter how ya look at it. -BigJ FordRaptorForums.com

Chevrolet Silverado Parallel Parking

Both LS Series and G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover allow you to open the cover independently from the tailgate with a handle recessed to the drivers side of the truck. This can be beneficial in some other everyday situations as well, for example;  if you were to park somewhere such as a city street or pull through a spot in a parking lot there is a possibility someone could park very close to you. If they park close enough, it may be extremely difficult to reach the tailgate handle or open it at all depending on how large the vehicle behind you is. With any other tonneau cover that requires you to first open the tailgate to access the cover, you would have to move out of your parking spot to gain access to you truck bed.

Another everyday instance where being able to access your truck bed without the requirement of opening the tailgate would be useful is if you have your truck backed against a wall, fence, or other structure. Without having to move your truck you still have the ability to access 100% of your truck bed to load or unload any items you may need.

Other Applications for Style Steps

February 28th, 2013

Since our Fold-a-Cover hard folding tonneau cover and our Personal Caddy cargo management system can only be used with pickup trucks, we decided when we developed our Style Step step tubes in 2007 to expand them to a few other applications other then just staying in the pickup world. The other select few applications we chose to develop our Style Step for were vehicles that are as unique as our product and we felt needed a nerf bar available for them that fit their style.

Remember, you can customize any Style Step by simply switching out the Style Stripe with a different color that will better match your truck. They can even be painted any color to custom match your vehicles color scheme. Be sure to see a complete list of features at www.stylestep.com

Our Style Step can be added to a Hummer H2/H2 SUT

You can also pick up our Style Step for the Toyota FJ Cruiser

Tailgate Theft on the Rise

February 20th, 2013

It only takes a thief less than a minute to completely remove and make off with a pickup truck tailgate. Depending on the make of your truck a replacement tailgate can cost upwards of $1,000. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), from January 1, 2006 through September 30, 2012 they found that 1,343 claims were made in 45 states. The data points to the fact that tailgate theft claims have been increasing every year since 2009. They project the increase for 2011 to 2012 will be around 18%.

This surveillance video shows exactly how quickly and effortlessly a thief who knows what they are doing can get away with your tailgate.

The most targeted truck models are:

  1. Ford F-250
  2. Ford F-150
  3. Chevrolet Silverado

The states with the most tailgate thefts are:

  1. Texas
  2. Arizona
  3. California

One way that you can help prevent tailgate theft if your truck does not come equipped from the factory with a locking tailgate is to utilize the Fold-a-Cover’s ability to secure the tailgate.  If your truck does not come standard with a locking tailgate your Fold-a-Cover will come with a heavy duty metal lock tab (Figure 1) already installed on the rear panel of the cover. Simply install the footmans loop or lock plate (Figure 2) that is already included in your hardware kit. With the footmans loop installed and your Fold-a-Cover locked and secure your tailgate cannot be opened without first unlocking and opening your Fold-a-Cover.

Many other types of hard folding tonneau covers claim to completely secure your truck bed and tailgate, but can only do this is you purchase a pop-’n-lock for your tailgate. Even then most covers themselves do not have a locking mechanism and can be easily manipulated if someone wanted to access your truck bed or steal your tailgate.

Tailgate Theft on the Rise

February 20th, 2013

It only takes a thief less than a minute to completely remove and make off with a pickup truck tailgate. Depending on the make of your truck a replacement tailgate can cost upwards of $1,000. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), from January 1, 2006 through September 30, 2012 they found that 1,343 claims were made in 45 states. The data points to the fact that tailgate theft claims have been increasing every year since 2009. They project the increase for 2011 to 2012 will be around 18%.

This surveillance video shows exactly how quickly and effortlessly a thief who knows what they are doing can get away with your tailgate.

The most targeted truck models are:

  1. Ford F-250
  2. Ford F-150
  3. Chevrolet Silverado

The states with the most tailgate thefts are:

  1. Texas
  2. Arizona
  3. California

One way that you can help prevent tailgate theft if your truck does not come equipped from the factory with a locking tailgate is to utilize the Fold-a-Cover’s ability to secure the tailgate.  If your truck does not come standard with a locking tailgate your Fold-a-Cover will come with a heavy duty metal lock tab (Figure 1) already installed on the rear panel of the cover.

The New 2014 Toyota Tundra

February 7th, 2013

Toyota released the new 2014 Tundra this morning and it will be at The Chicago Auto Show this weekend. The overhauled Tundra is also available in two new upscale models to compete with Ford’s King Ranch and the Ram Longhorn. The 1794 Edition is Western themed after the ranch where the Tundra plant was established in Texas. The Platinum edition will feature custom double stitched leather and chrome accents.

Designers reshaped the front end, giving the Tundra a taller grille and integrating it with the hood to give it sharper lines. The three-piece bumper was added to help differentiate the Tundra variants, and Toyota says it will mean lower replacement costs. Additionally, Toyota squared off the fenders to give the truck a more aggressive stance. Changes were also made to the rear bumper and the exterior of the bed, giving the Tundra a much more pronounced profile. -Motor Trend

The New 2014 Toyota Tundra

February 7th, 2013

The new 2014 Toyota Tundra was revealed this morning and it will be at The Chicago Auto Show this weekend. The overhauled Tundra is also available in two new upscale models to compete with Ford’s King Ranch and the Ram Longhorn. The 1794 Edition is Western themed after the ranch where the Tundra plant was established in Texas. The Platinum edition will feature custom double stitched leather and chrome accents. The Toyota Tundra hasn’t had a major redesign since 2007 so the newly refreshed 2014 Toyota Tundra is a welcome change for most Tundra fanatics.

Designers reshaped the front end, giving the Tundra a taller grille and integrating it with the hood to give it sharper lines. The three-piece bumper was added to help differentiate the Tundra variants, and Toyota says it will mean lower replacement costs.

Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite vs. Extang Encore Tonno

January 29th, 2013

The first thing you will notice between the Extang Encore Tonno and our G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover is the G4 Elite utilizes a 4-panel design; this means that when the cover is stacked behind the cab it allows for 75% of the truck bed to be used. The Encore’s 3 panel tri-fold design only allows for 60% of the truck bed to haul items when fully stacked behind the cab of the truck.

The opening mechanism of the covers is another key functionality difference. Our G4 Elite’s flat-latch handle makes for easy, one handed opening without having to open the tailgate first. The Encore Tonno, on the other hand, uses a release cord system which means to open the cover you must first open the tailgate to gain access to the cover’s release cord.

Both the Encore Tonno and our G4 Elite have a rail system that is installed with the tonneau cover. The G4 Elite’s rail system manages water before it ever gets into the truck bed by utilizing its wind-seals. The Encore Tonno, however, has to manage water once it has already entered the truck bed; it does this by using a system of gutters and drain tubes. The gutter system runs from the cab of the truck along the bed rail, but does not go the entire way to the tailgate. This means that any water that penetrates the cover near the tailgate will end up in the truck bed. Even though the Encore has a rail system, the cover itself still sits on the bed rails, which allows abrasive materials to collect beneath the panels and potentially damage your trucks finish.

Each cover allows access to the front panel nearest the cab of the truck. Our G4 Elite uses a flat-latch handle on both the front and real panel that can be opened with one hand along with a recessed locking mechanism that protects it from the elements. The Encore Tonno utilizes a rotary type latch. This requires two hands to open the cover, and because the lock and latch mechanism sits above the cover, it invites moisture to penetrate the lock and has the potential to freeze in the winter months. This locking mechanism is only featured on the panel nearest the cab; this means that the cover is not completely secure unless your truck comes with a locking tailgate.

4 Panel vs. Tri-Fold Tonneau Covers

January 25th, 2013

The key difference between a tri-fold tonneau cover, such as the Extang Encore or Advantage Hard Hat, and a tonneau cover with a 4 panel design, like both our G4 Elite and LS Series Fold-a-Cover, is the amount of the truck bed they allow access to when the cover is fully stacked up behind the cab of your truck.

Because the 4 panel design of our Fold-a-Cover products divides the cover into 4 panels of equal length, along with its unique accordion style folding pattern, you have access to 75% of your truck bed when the cover is fully stacked behind the cab of your truck.

Tri-fold tonneau covers, like the Encore, Solid Fold or Hard Hat, divide the cover into 3 panels  of unequal length because of their standard “flip over” hinge design.  The folding method requires each panel to be folded on top of the next; this means the last panel must be larger than the other two.  As a result the covers take up 40% of your truck bed, leaving you with only 60% access when the cover is fully stacked behind the cab of your truck.

Aside from the obvious benefit of having more room to haul larger cargo items with a 4 panel tonneau cover, having more access to the truck bed has many other benefits.  Fold-a-Cover products work seamlessly with fifth wheel applications as well as gooseneck trailers.  It is not uncommon for some tri-fold tonneau covers to have clearance issues with these types of applications.  Another thing to note is that when the Fold-a-Cover is fully stacked it still utilizes four attachment points to your tuck bed, while many tri-fold models will only have 2 points of attachment when stacked behind the cab.

Personal Caddy Comparison Video

January 10th, 2013

We had recently released a video comparing our Personal Caddy Cargo Management system, which is compatible with most of our G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover applications, to the Bakbox compatible with tonneau covers from Bak Industries. The video highlights the key differences that separate these two tonneau cover compatible storage units.

The most obvious difference between these two products is their size and storage capacity. You can visually see that the Personal Caddy dwarfs the Bakbox when the two are sitting side-by-side. The Bakbox has a storage capacity of 3.4 cubic feet, whereas the Personal Caddy ranges in capacity from 6.9-10.3 cubic feet, depending on the application they are designed for. This means the Personal Caddy can fit large items such as sporting equipment, tools, or groceries that the Bakbox cannot accommodate.

Construction is another area where the Personal Caddy tops the Bakbox. The Personal Caddy comes preassembled with a solid aluminum frame making it sturdy and ridged enough to hold the weight of whatever is stored in it. The Bakbox requires assembly and is held together with “hook and loop” straps.

Each storage unit has additional accessories available. The Personal Caddy has an optional aluminum sliding tray that is built into the cargo management system to allow space for smaller items that may easily move around. The Bakbox has a plastic “pencil type” tray that sits on top of the Bakbox.

How to Remove a Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite or LS Series Hard Folding Tonneau Cover

November 19th, 2012

One feature that we love about our G4 Elite and the LS Series hard folding tonneau covers is that they both allow you 100% access to your truck bed with the ability to open the cover on both ends. Our unique 4 panel design also allows 75% of the bed to be utilized to haul items, unlike other 3 panel covers that only allow about 66%, without ever having to remove the tonneau cover! If for some reason you did need 100% of your bed to haul extra-large items, you can very easily to remove a Fold-a-Cover product. It only takes about 3 minutes.

1. Open the front end of the tonneau cover that is closest to the cab of your truck and locate the two brackets holding the tonneau cover to the truck.

  • You can also complete this 1st step by stacking the the cover in the ‘hauling position’ behind the cab of the truck to access the brackets. This method can be seen in the video at the end of the post.

2. Remove the two bolts from each side of the cover on the underside of the C-clamp.

3. Since the tonneau cover is no longer attached to the truck CAREFULLY fold the cover into the stacked ‘hauling position’ near the cab of the truck if it is not already in this position.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Now Lift your cover off and set it aside until you are ready to re-install.

All Current Model Year Application G4 Elite Fold-a-Covers no longer Require Drilling to Install

November 1st, 2012

At Steffens Automotive we are always striving to come up with new and innovative ideas when it comes to new products and even improving our products already on the market. That is why after feedback from many of our customers, along with some research and development, we can officially say as of June 2012 all of our G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover models coming out of our Factory Store  for current model year truck applications no longer require any type of drilling to install them on your truck!

This will alleviate some of the inconveniences that are associated with the other types of mounting systems on older model trucks. Now when you buy directly from us your current model year application G4 Elite will come with a mounting system the does not require drilling. This will ensure that the installation of your Fold-a-Cover will go smoother than ever. With the exception of the Nissan Frontier, Nissan Titan, Chevrolet Colorado, and GMC Canyon, which still have an adhesive mounting system, all other G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover’s have a clamp-on mounting system. This will allow you to freely adjust the tonneau cover rails at any time during the installation giving you the ability to easily align your G4 Elite so that it can provide you with the most protection from the elements as possible.
