need help picking a hard tonneau cover.

I was originally thinking of going with the undercover flex,and a pop and lock.but I have heard that it's possible to open that cover and the Bak version of it,with a coat hanger.Now I'm not sure which one to get.I don't think I want the kind that opens like a trunk lid,since I carry big items occasionally,and I rarely have anyone to help me take it off.I thought about the Roll n . lock,but,I really don't like the vinyl covering.What should I do?help!!

Have you looked at these ??

http://autocustoms.com/p-684-pace-ed...eau-cover.aspx

I have one of these on my '07 Ridgeline and it works great even after 6 years of NH/Maine winters and Floridas sun & sand...

It does have the lock BUT the Hondas tailgate does not.

My favorite part of this; my wife uses it with ease and that is with the tailgate opened either way.... Happy wife, happy life....completely weather proof...her soccer equipment stays high & dry year round...

Yes, they are pricey up front BUT any cover that can last 6 + years in New England is worth something ...

You will need to add a Pop & Lock for virtually any folding tonneau to secure the tailgate. I'm not so sure about is the G4 Elite. It was too much trouble to install and fully remove for my needs. The cover uses clamps in the front and rear for security. You will see pics in the review.

No on the Pace.....With the key,you can lock the cover in place....My Dad did that just to keep the lock working properly and I guess to deter anyone from trying to open it up....I simply spray lock-graphite in it every oil change and work the Key back and forth......As I stated above, my wife uses this faithfully EVERY Saturday morning for R&R of her soccer equipment and even with the snow it performs perfectly ( I don't here a word about it )...only true PM is too keep the slides clean and drain hoses connected; there are 2 up front that take all of the run off down into drain holes in the bed......PLUS the canister it rolls up into has taken a few shots...my granddaughters 4-wheeler has bounced off it more than a few times...if you didn't see it happen, you would not know it...built tough ...
