Home of the Top to topless in 20 seconds. Craftec is the original manufacturer of removable high quality, hatch-style Tonneau bed covers for classic and late model pickup trucks and El Caminos. Our cover is unique in that technically it is a soft cover, but it operates like a hard cover by opening at an angle with a hinge at the front. Everything is included in the kit for full assembly including strut shocks to hold the cover in the open position. Made in the U.S.A. with a variety of UV resistant Vinyl choices that stretch over the top of the custom extruded 6063-T6 aluminum framework. Ultra Low profile at 3/8” above truck bed enhances the appearance of your truck. Most do not require any drilling. Limited lifetime warranty on framework, 3-year warranty on shocks and vinyl.
***PLASTIC BED RAIL/LINER QUESTIONS
Manufacturers have been selling a lot of new trucks with a plastic bed liner that goes on top and over the front of the truck bed lip. Our front hinge rail does not adhere properly to that plastic liner due to the chemical make-up of the liner. Sprayed in liners are fine.
We have upgraded our standard black vinyl to a true three-ply. The end result of standard is a firmer underside that results in less stretching, less wind flapping and 100% mildew resistance.
Colors provide a great custom look and use a thick woven white polyester thread on the bottom for strength, but the underside must be maintained to resist mildew.
The Canvas is similar to a convertible top. The topside is a cloth texture with vinyl on the underside for water penetration.
They each have their advantages and disadvantages. The strongest is the standard black, but the strength makes it a little more difficult during assembly because it doesn't stretch easily.
The deepest black and nicest look is the canvas, but toughest to keep clean.
