    A week ago, I installed the Access tonneau cover. I went to roll it up yesterday and found that the male ends of the clips on the nylon roll-up straps are already broken.

    I've contacted my reseller for replacements, but wondered if there was some other (non-plastic) replacement I could do. These things look awfully fragile to me.

    Thanks!

    Yeah..I've had two of these covers and they haven't ever broken. Some poor shipping handling I'd guess.

    I'd get the replacements and give them a shot before you start trying to re-engineer them...
