Installation of 2004-2011 Ford F150 Tonneau Covers (including the Super Crew) - XTreme Flat:
Prior to installation, unpack and inspect all parts and the LT Sport Tonneau Cover for signs of obvious damage.
An extra piece of rubber gasket material is included with your tonneau cover. Carefully clean the front rail of your truck bed box and install the self adhesive strip across the entire width of the front rail as shown below. Cut the excess off with a razor blade or knife.
Using a 7/16" wrench, tighten the bolts (yellow arrows) while
ensuring the female hinge is pushed all the way forward and down against
the front rail (green arrows).
Make sure the black bracket is pushed all the way to the rear (green
arrow) and then tighten the bolts (yellow arrows). Make sure the bolts
for the "strike" are left "loose", (blue-arrows) they will be tightened later.
Using another person to help you, insert the tonneau cover into the opening of the female hinges. If it doesn't quite fit, loosen the nuts on the 'male' hinges and spread them out to the appropriate width.
forget to re-tighten them!
Step 5: Step 6:
With the tailgate open, carefully shut the tonneau cover. Check the clearances and make sure the tonneau cover is centered. If it is not centered, loosen the appropriate set of bolts on the tonneau cover and re-center.
Adjust the height of the rear "strikes" so that the Stainless Steel rods
slide underneath them.
If things are quite how you'd like them, we've built in quite a bit a flexibility that should be self-explanatory... otherwise, if you have a problem you can't quite solve, feel free to call us and we can help you over the phone.
