    Hey Guys,


    I just wanted to see if anyone else with a bed mat has had any issues with it flying up at all? And if so, what have you done to solve it? Mine has flown up twice on me now while driving on the interstate....:annoyed:


    Any thoughts on fastening it down? I have a temporary solution of two buckets of mortar...



    Any help would be appreciated!!!

    Every time I look back I just see the top of my tonneau cover. Not sure if it's lifting up or not.

    Heard of guys using the front drain holes and bolting it down to prevent theft

    Do you need to know, or care?
    Never had a problem with mine, but this ^^^ has been done many times to prevent hands from walking away with it.

    Yeah I picked it up from the dealer when i got my pro grille...I can't decide it is is because it was rolled up for a while and still new (had it for maybe 2 weeks) Twice I have been driving, then out of nowhere in my rearview have seen it start coming up, then curling up underneath itself...so I have had to pull over and fix it. I just assume air somehow got underneath it...we are in some strong winds right now in Nashville.


    I have thought about fastening it down, I just didn't know if anyone else has bolted it and if so, what they might have done. I like the idea of using the drain holes...keeps me from drilling!

    I got mine from the dealer as well and I can hear it flopping around on bumps. At first I thought my bed was rattling, then I saw some marks (cleaned spots) on the wheel well sides where it has rubbed 5 or 6 inches up.....

    I am assuming it is this right side pocket....kind of hard to see in the picture. But once air gets underneath it and it comes up, the mat rolls underneath itself. I am sure it is heavy enough to not fly out, but don't want to take that chance.

    Maybe like you mentioned it was cause it had been rolled up, hopefully after some good Sunshine it will flatten out.

    Try to get that thing flattened out. And maybe try putting a bungy cord between the D-rings in order to keep it from flying in the mean time.

    You could also put a coupla buckets of cement on it... :anonymous:

    or a tri-fold cover then no one steals it... I'd be worried about my tail gate, just sayin....

    Your second picture almost looks like the mat is touching on both sides and is being squeezed sort of. Is it? Maybe it is just a tad bit oversized?
