    Hello world. '09 Tacoma is my first Tacoma and my 4th Toyota. New Tacoma replaced 12-yr old Chevy 1500.

    Am looking for locking tonneau and/or tonneau and tailgate lock. Even though truckcandy.com website says PopNLock 5200 will fit '09, I just talked w/Brian there and he tells me that I need PopNLock 5300 which won't be available until March '09. Am passing this on FYI.

    My old Chevy had PaceEdwards rollup tonneau on it and that tonneau had a locking mechanism built in. I then installed a $5 gate lock on the inside of the tailgate such that the tailgate was locked when the tonneau was closed and locked.

    I could install a new locking PaceEdwards on my Tacoma EXCEPT that after 12 years on the old truck, (not in weather and mostly garaged), the vinyl was separating from the metal ribs and for $1000+, I expected better. Does anyone know of a hard-cover tonneau for the '09 Tacoma that has its own locking device?

    Best regards,
    Paul

    Undercover works great, lockable and reasonable on the price too. Lightweight at about 50lbs and has holes in it to hang on the wall in your garage or shop when its not in use.

    For the record I have a Access Limited Edition soft tonneau and have a pop-lock on the tailgate for securing the bed. It secures the bed enough for me, although someone could come by and knife the cover to get in. Though really, if someone wants in your bed they are going to get access to matter what, regardless if it is hard or soft cover. I use to have an ARE, but hated the fact you were limited to what you could haul because of the limitation on how far the lid opened.

    Lightweight, durable, not painted, lockable and it came with an LED light and tailgate seal (from Autoanything.com)

    On my 2002 Tacoma, I had the fiberglass, color-matched tonneau cover. It was heavy, hard to remove, and it was PITA to clean, that's a lot of surface area to keep washed, waxed.

    with silver, I like the look of the black UnderCover.

    Just remember the Undercover will block the use of your tie-down cleats.

    see my sig
    i like the roll up style that i have because i can, well, roll it up - when not in use. However, it has holes in it from construction debris (when rolled up) and when i unroll it it stays wrinkled up and is a major PITA to get snapped in the cold weather. - like 1.5 hours with a freaking heat gun on it before traveling for christmas.
    my question is - how big of a deal is it to remove the undercover? how long does it take?

    Takes 5 minutes or less and can be done by one person if you can prop open the lid to remove the struts.

    Phiggy, did you make a decision on a tonneau yet?

    What are you considering? What are your needs?

    I just bought a 09 double-cab with 6' bed, and I thought that the foldable Bakflip HD suited my needs best... that is until I have read some comments about it from TW members in this thread. I thought that an electric tailgate dynolock would be a good way of keeping everything conveniently secured.

    I want a lockable hard cover for security, yet I would like it foldable for some shopping/hauling flexibility (I don't want to remove the tonneau every time I find something oversize that I want to move).

    Anyone?? If Bakflip is crap, whats the answer? OR.. What is definitely NOT the answer?
