  • Tonneau cover is made of aluminium profiles which heats up and cools down relatively quick according to weather conditions. This can cause condensation on the inside of the profiles and the panels.
  • The pull strap has been designed only for opening and closing the Roll cover. The carabineer and ring will be damaged in case of excessive load.
  • Goods in the pickup bed must be secured during transportation to prevent damage on the structural parts of tonneau cover (especially the canister.)
  • If the tonneau cover is closed and has water, snow, ice or dirt on the cover, it might enter into the pickup bed as the cover retracts. To avoid this, clean off the top surface of the cover prior to opening.
  • When opening the cover, the opening should be careful and controlled using the pull strap to prevent the cover from hitting the front with full speed, which it has NOT been designed for.


• The Roll cover is not designed for loading although it can support normal snow loads. No part of it can support any load from cargo or persons and the product might be damaged if somebody stands on it.


  • Do not drive with persons under the tonneau cover.
  • Do not allow persons or animals to stay in the pickup bed when the cover is closed.
  • Temperatures can be very high under the cover when closed.
  • The pull strap should not be used to tie down cargo.
  • Do not disassemble the main shaft from the canister without relieving the spring tension completely.
  • Remove fingers from lamellas when opening and closing.
  • We do not recommend washing the tonneau cover in a brushless carwash, as the coating may be damaged due to use of chemicals.
  • Wash the Roll cover regularly using normal car shampoo and a soft, lint free cloth or brush.
  • If washed in any carwash, or if any chemicals are used on the roll cover, please ensure a max PH value of 8 is used.
