    That great, sounds like a good product.
    I've also had contact with the customer service dept via e-mails and they too have been very helpful.

    Has anyone installed the Pop and Lock Power Tailgate lock in a new truck that has the back up camera? How was the installation?

    Hey guys, anyone tried removing the fold-a-cover sticker? If so, did it cause damages at all? For those who didn't, does it look doable? That's the only thing holding me back on purchasing this. I'm looking for a clean look. Thanks.

    Just an fyi, had my cover for maybe 1.5 years and the 3rd fold rubber seal peeling off and water leaks from there. Gonna try and use a roof seal or spray seal to fix it. The original way to fix it seems way to differcult and I would probably break something. :(

    Thanks for sharing. Any pics you can share? Is yours Elite or LS? I hope you manage to fix it. There must be warranty on it since you haven't had it that long. On their site it says two years. The flaws of a fold cover got me thinking about a one piece as well, but then again there are cons to that as well.

    It's raining today but I'll post some pictures in a few days if it clears up. It's an elite and the two year covers only from the main manufacturer, as stated on their site.

    Tried to use some liquid glue and it didn't work so now I'll try super glue, and paint it with this stuff.

    :( You are likely aware of the replacement parts available and I can see how removing that weather strip out may cause damage if not careful. I'm now wondering how to remove the strip if need be if I get in this situation. Maybe using a hair dryer to loosen it up then use adhesive remover perhaps? Thanks for sharing once again.

    There is a video online but 100% likely I would damaged the cover by just replacing the seal. I decided to seal the underside because the water would run to the front and back only, and not directly in the middle of the bed.

    ^^^ Kinda sucks that your cover is leaking. I've had mine going on 2.5 yrs and not one issue. Makes me wonder if the dry Arizona weather is causing the dry rot issue which is common in dry conditions.

    The Fold-a-Cover is not a tri fold, but if interested check http://www.foldacoverfactorystore.com/ and plug in your vehicle information to purchase. There are other cover options of course.

    Thanks to the OP and all the other posters. This will be my tonneau cover in the fall.
