Overall, I have been happy with the product but was not happy with the installation instruction booklet and on-line video. There are many discrepancies between the written instructions and the video. Deciding which one is accurate was a bit of a challenge. For example, the video says to "grease the inner rail with the lubricant provided." The written instruction says, "grease the top edge of the inner tracks. WD40 is recommended."
Setting the spring on the canister was another problem. The video says to unwind the canister 4 times for short bed and 5 times for long beds. The written instruction says to unwind 6 times for short bed trucks and 8 times for long beds. Attaching the lid was also different. There were also two plastic pieces. Each with double-sided tape that I still have no idea what they are for and there is no mention of them on the video or instruction booklet.
I am hoping that the RollBak cover will give me years of trouble-free service. I selected the product because I wanted a tonneau cover that I could stand on in order to reach the top of the truck cab when I wash and wax it.
