Description:

It only takes one of your favorite tools being pinched to make you want to employ full-time security to guard your gear from those greedy bandits. Forgo buying one of those earpieces with the squiggly wire, and replace that security with the aluminum deck that comes with the Pace Edwards Switchblade Retractable Tonneau Cover. It'll take the beating of even the most persistent of thieves and be the only protection you need – but you can keep the all-black outfit you already bought, if you want.

Security isn't the only benefit you're getting from the aluminum slat design of the Pace Edwards retractable tonneau cover. Each slat is bonded with ArmorTek – a weather-resistant polymer that helps to keep moisture out and your cargo in. The ArmorTek coating paired with the built-in channels that funnel water away in a downpour help to make sure your truck bed area is entirely weatherproof in all but the most extreme conditions.

If you're worried about buying a tonneau cover that's going to improve the stock price of WD40 thanks to how hard it is to roll up, you can rest easy with this Pace Edwards truck bed cover. The compact canister has a custom continuous-tension spring built in that provides consistent and smooth operation every time you open and close the cover – no more squeaking or binding to turn all the heads in the hardware store parking lot.

If you have more oversized cargo than you can shake a stick at, you'll be thanking your lucky stars you went with a truck bed cover that can be removed in just minutes to give you full access to your truck bed. Installation is as simple as the removal too, so when your new retractable tonneau cover arrives, you won't need to block out the full afternoon (and evening… and the next morning). With simply a screwdriver and a 7/16" wrench you'll be kitted out with one of the best truck bed covers on the market!

Sick of making old person noises every time you open and close things? Pace Edwards has done their best to make your life easy with a convenient pull strap to help you close your tonneau cover, saving you from that awkward pickup truck yoga trying to reach for the edge of the cover to close it. And it’s all backed by a stout warranty against manufacturer defects. Choose a Pace Edwards truck bed cover and you’ll never look back.



Frequently Asked Questions

How secure is the Switchblade Tonneau Cover?
The cover panels are made from polymer padded aluminum which is stout and sturdy. It would require a lot of force and dedication to puncture the surface. Out of sight, out of mind is key. Covering your gear severly limits someone's interest in what may or may not be in the truck bed. As long as your tailgate is locked, the cover is secure.

Is the Switchblade bed cover waterproof?
Ultimately no truck bed cover is totally waterproof, unless it's a fully overlapping style. Most retractable covers do an excellent job however keeping major water out, due to the fact that the rails run uninterrupted down the entire length of the bed.

Where is the Pace Edwards Switchblade bed cover made?
The Switchblade tonneau covers are made in the USA.

How do I lock the Switchblade cover if my truck doesn't have a tailgate lock?
If fully closed, it overlaps the truck bed, preventing the bed from opening relying on your tailgate to be closed. Pop & Lock Tailgate Locks are available for most trucks as an aftermarket solution that can be retrofitted if your truck was not originally equipped with a tailgate lock. Sold separately, available at AutoAnything.

Looks great, easy to install

Looked all over the internet and at local shops before purchasing the Pace Edwards Switchblade for my 2018 F-150. This cover is a great value and looks great on my truck. It was easy to install, especially after watching installation videos on YouTube. I highly recommend the Switchblade.

Great cover at a good price

I originally was looking for a roll up cover. However, after getting one for a different retailr that didn't fit and much research I decided on the switchblade. I thought a lot of the bed space would be lost because of the canister, but it wasn't. I'm very glad with my choice with only one minor complaint, that it leaks at the tailgate. The leak can be fixed with some weather stripping. Installation took about an hour, be myself and looks great!

Pace Edwards Switchblade Retractable Tonneau Cover

Great cover best price on the net. I had one of these on a truck 10 years ago. I have had two other trucks since then with the 3 part folding covers. The switchblade is a far better cover. Auto Everything always has the best prices and super fast shipping

Good and quick

Cover was shipped in a timely manner. It is exactly what I needed to keep my tools out of prying eyes. The cover does let some what in through the gaps by the tail gate but not enough to worry about. The cover is great for the price install is easy just took alittle to square it up on the truck.

won't fit

Unfortunately the cover does not fit correctly with my factory hard plastic drop in bed liner. I purchased this cover because I didn't want to have to mess with the liner but unfortunately it didn't fit.

Just what I wanted

Easy to install and works as advertised. I just hosed the top down and was pleased that I had no water inside connected with the top. A little weather stripping on the bottom of the tail gate will completely seal the insides. I haven't removed it yet but when you see it you will see it is a simple and clever design.

AWESOME

Read the instructions, took the pieces/parts out, put it together. Spent less than an hour to install w/no modifications having to be made it fit like a charm. If I ever need another, or recommend one, this is it.

Honest review from a very critical buyer

I criticize everything. Especially the things that I purchase. I firmly believe quality is crap these days. However, the switchblade is absolutely a solid product. Very easy to install, it has an aluminum cover under the material, easy to function, overall just a great product. Just keep in mind when you put it together you have to have the lubrication on the rails before it will slide.

Leaks

Very nice looking and easy to install but the design against the tailgate makes it leak bad, there is too much of a gap on the edges. If I did this over again I would have went with another style. Defeats the purpose of buying one if it leaks.

So far so good

We haven't had any problems with the cover yet. My only critique is that the install instructions were not very clear. It took us twice as long because we had to use youtube to understand the instructions.

Nice cover, easy install

The no drilling installation was my primary reason for purchase as I didn't want to drill holes in new truck. Install was straight forward; cover works really well. Truck bed didn't have drain holes for the drain tubes out of the canister. Rather than drill holes, installed the tubes and let them drain through the small space between side and bed. So far seems to work OK.
