    You don't want snaps. Access covers are great, IMO.

    Snaps suck... if you want a soft cover get an Access cover from Luke at Truck Alterations. I have the Access L/E and absolutely love it!

    x4 for snaps sucking. I got TorzaTop Tri-Fold and love it so far. Best part is that you can take the entire thing off in less than a minute. Nothing of the cover (no brackets/rails) stays on the bed once it's removed.

    Snaps are not usually too good of a thing, but it depends on your use and where you live. I had a snap cover on my previous truck for about 6 years and it worked well for me. Why? I live on the Gulf coast, not much cold (like freezing is about it), and I only took the cover off every couple of months for hauling stuff that was too big, or when it was too dirty. It was also cheap and light.

    So, depending on your needs, the snap on cover may work for you. If you still think this will work, I would check into an Extang or other name brand cover, as they can be had for about the same price as your Ebay link.

    BTW, for my 09 Tacoma, I upgraded to an Extang J-hook cover instead of the snaps. My use and usage of the cover hasn't changed, just wanted to try the J-hook cover for easier on-off access. Still cheap and light though....
