Turning your truck bed into a secure storage area while maintaining full use of your truck bed is a breeze with the Pace Edwards Switchblade tonneau cover. The Switchblade can be mounted in minutes and can be removed just as easily to allow full bed access. The Pace Edwards Switchblade is designed with a Continuous Tension Spring that allows the cover to roll in or out of the canister smoothly. This spring action is also what allows you to operate this cover from either side with one hand. The tonneau cover is made of aluminum panels bonded with Pace's patented ArmorTek. ArmorTek is a padded weather resistant polymer. This layer is bonded right to the aluminum panels and gives the truck bed cover a "soft Top" look and feel without compromising on security. A full width handle and pull strap are also included for your convenience. Installation of the Switchblade is like no other cover in its class. The only tools you need are a 7/16" wrench and a Phillips head screwdriver. Pace Edwards designed this cover to install with clamps and no need for any drilling. The best part about the Switchblade is that it can be uninstalled and bundled up with an included storage strap for storage when you need your full truck bed.
