    I have a little problem. I just installed my new toneau cover. The problem is that with the cover clamps at the back of the bed, they can not be fastened down with the bed extender in there. I have to take it out to clamp down the cover. I wanted to use the bed extender in the bed to keep things from sliding around the bed. It would double as a divider to keep stuff jsut inside the tailgate.
    Any one encounter this issue? If so, how did you deal with or make it work?

    What kind of tonneau cover do you have. With the Access covers due to the way they are mounted, you have to trim the extender about 1/2" on each side and then it works just fine

    I just put on the Tonno Pro. The problem that I am having is with the rear clamps, the bed extender interferes with them being latched when extender is folded in the bed.

    I'm sure someone else on here has one and might be able to help... It's kinda slow so far this weekend... might take a day or two to find someone able to help.

    OP - did you ever find a solution for this issue? I just ordered the Tonno Pro and was considering a bed extender as well but am curious if you were ever able to get it to work. Thanks!

    No, I have net been able to figure it out. I have thought about cutting the lock down latches on the tonneau cover, but not sure if I want to do that yet. I just fold the cover back for now when I need to install and use the bed extender.

    Did you get your cover from the dealer or manufacture? Either way you should have been told they can't work together. I almost made the same mistake. If you don't have one, get a bed mat. I have no idea what type of rubber they used to make it, but whatever you put onto it close to the tailgate well be there when you get home. They are the cats ass.
