This is a very good hard folding tonneau cover that provides top quality security as well as great weather protection. It is very low profile which is something pickup truck owners love in a cover. Quick easy access to pretty well all your truck bed. The panels are built with a fiberglass reinforced polymer top with a beautiful textured finish and an aluminum underside. There is a 1/2 inch eps core for even greater strength and rigidness. Go ahead and slap up to 400 pounds on top of it if absolutely necessary. Each section has latches that automtically lock while closing the cover. The latches easily unlock from one side of the cover just by quickly pulling on the release cable as you open each section. It folds in increments of each section or all the way to the cab in a slightly slanted position where it can be secured with the securing rods to drive with it open. This is something other folding covers do not do. They fold up onto the last section where you lose that much space for taller type cargo.

How is the secrity factor with the Bakflip Fibermax?
Not only does the rear section near the tailgate lock while closing, every section locks down automatically while closing. This makes prying up on the middle of the cover to get an arm in at your cargo extremely difficult. The cover is a hard folding tonneau cover so a thief would be very disappointed if they tried cutting their way in it with a knife compared to a soft cover. I would recommend buying an aftermarket tailgate lock if your truck doesn't already have one. They are inexpensive and very easy to install. A very good investment to keep your cargo secure.

Good news, you can use the stake pockets for accessories that require them. The cover mounts between the truck sides and not on top of the sides. It will also work with most bedliners and bed extenders and more.
How is the Bakflip Fibermax in wet weather?
The stong rubber seals do a very good job keeping the water from getting into the sides as well as the hinges. The sied rails act as channels for any water that may find its way in, These channel direct the water toward one end of the siderails aand down through drain tubes that you route to exit your truck bed.
