Hard Retractable Tonneau covers: Retractable hard tonneau covers are an interesting concept. They install just like a soft cover with rails along the sides, but they use a hard (typically aluminum) belt like series of 2-3inch interlocking metal plates. When opened, this belt rolls up into a canister that is at the cab side of the bed just below the glass. The canisters usually take up about a foot or so of the front half of the bed. This is the drawback. If you have a short bed, you might want to consider if you are willing to lose a foot of your bed to this canister. Besides that, these covers are great. They look great, they are easy and fast to open and close, and they are strong and secure. As with most others, if you have a locking tailgate, it is near imposible to break into the bed of your truck with this cover closed and locked.
The Bak Rollbak is the best retractable hard tonneau cover on the market. It boasts a lot of key features that leave the competition in the dust! Here is a list of the top features that make this the retractable cover to buy:
What makes RollBak the world’s
best retractable cover?
The RollBak boasts the strongest, thickest aluminum slats in the retractable class of truck bed covers. The slats are rated to withstand 400 lbs of weight and are finished with a rugged powder coated enamel to weather the most severe elements.

Felt lined underside:
The RollBak is completely silent. It will not make a sound, even when driving off-road. RollBak slats are lined with felt marine grade felt underneath to ensure pin-drop quiet. The felt also protects the slats when they are rolled up inside the canister.
The RollBak has a specially designed spring which allows the cover to retract effortlessly, even when the truck is parked on a sever incline.
The RollBak is designed to fit inside the truck rails. RollBak is the only retractable cover to guarantee 100% access to stake pockets, This means the cover can be used in conjunction with bed rails, tie-downs and any stake pocket mount ladder rack.
Superior rail system:
The RollBak glides effortlessly on Teflon tracks which self adjust inside the rails. This ensures that the cover remains parallel, even when your truck bed may taper. The better the cover rolls, the longer it will last!
State of the art security:
RollBak sports a dual latching system that automatically locks the cover when it reaches the tailgate position. All latches are neatly concealed under the cover. No exposure to the elements means that your latching mechanism won’t deteriorate over time. Simply locking your tailgate will result in complete security!
Superior canister design:
The RollBak canister is designed to maximize the space inside your bed. It is impact resistant and will not ding! The RollBak allows more than a foot of space to store gear under the canister in the average truck. The only reason RollBak’s canister may ever be bigger than any other retractable is the fact that the slats on a RollBak are far thicker and more robust than the competition, meaning that more space is required to house them when they are rolled up! The canister also comes equipped with dual integrated drain valves to funnel water out quickly on both sides of the truck bed.
Clamp on installation:
The new RollBak G2 is factory set. This means that the tension on the spring, the setting of the rails and the assembly of latches and draw straps are all complete. This all makes for a very user friendly install experience!
