Installation of 2004-2011 Nissan Titan Tonneau Covers :

If you have the "Utilitrack System" on your Nissan Titan, please use these instructions:
Installation Instructions for Nissan Titan Truck Bed Covers - with Utili-Track


Prior to installation, unpack and inspect all parts and the LT Sport Tonneau Cover for signs of obvious damage.

Step 1:

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.

Line up Stainless Steel front "Female Hinges" with the front rail. Using steel bolts (supplied) and gold colored "Lobe Clamps", attach the female hinge to the bed of the truck. 

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).
 


 

Step 2:
Using the same wrench, attach the rear bracket that has the "strike".

Make sure the rear 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.


 

Step 3:
Using 2 people, lift the LT Sport tonneau cover up and insert the "Male Hinges" into the slots of the females hinges.

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.

 Don't forget to re-tighten them!
 


 

Step 4:
Attach the "Gas Props" by snapping them on to the ball studs.
 
Here's a hint: Always install them so that the 'barrels' are on the top. This allows the oil in the cylinder barrel to lubricate the shafts as they open and close.


 

Step 5:
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.

 

Step 6:
Adjust the height of the rear "Strikes" so that the Steel rods on the latch slide under them and latch the tonneau cover closed.

The "strike" can be moved up and down (yellow and blue arrows)

The latch can be positioned "in or out" by loosening the nuts on the latch. (Red arrows)

When you've the adjusted the strikes and the latch, tighten the bolts.

(You can always re-adjust this later if it doesn't quite fit the first time.... )

Step 7:
Try it out!
If things aren't 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.
