TOOLS REQUIRED FOR ASSEMBLY:
7/16” wrench or socket
#2 Phillips screwdriver 3/8” wrench or socket
Side Cut Pliers
Tape measure
Note: There should be no drilling into the truck body needed on most standard or full-size trucks .
BEFORE YOU START:
Read the instructions carefully before you start. Due to the custom fit of this truck bed cover the installation will
require a second person to help in placing the canister in the truck bed. If you have questions regarding the
installation please call our Technical Support Line at (800) 338-3697.
OPTIONAL WIRING HARNESS FOR DASHBOARD SWITCH:
The BedLocker also offers an optional wire harness (part # BL1120) to manually operate the tonneau cover from
inside the cab of your truck.
This harness is designed to plug into the custom-built electronics control box mounted inside the canister.
Thread the plug through the side of the canister and connect it to the grey/violet plug. Make sure to secure the
loose wires inside the canister away from the gear and blanket.
Then run the wire to the cab and attach under the dash in a suitable location.
STEP 1: REMOVE CONTENTS & PLYWOOD PACKAGING
Remove the canister and top cover from the box.
Remove components from inside the canister. Perform a quick inventory to insure all parts are there.
Using the 3/8” wrench or socket remove the 2 bolts holding the plywood packaging supports on the ends of the
canister. Discard plywood packaging supports and bolts.
DISCARD PLYWOOD PACKAGING AND BOLTS!
(Do not let the blanket roll back on itself or the underside on the first three ribs can damage the visual
surface of the other rolled ribs).
Remove all of the vinyl sheeting protecting the blanket.
Pull the blanket out about 1 foot from the canister and let it hang.

(If the optional wire harness Part# BL1120 is used, you may want to tape it to the main
harness to ease having to pull them through the stake pocket separately).
From inside the truck bed push the long wire harness end without the plug through the stake
pocket on the drivers side of the truck and out the underside of the truck bed box.
Leave approximately one foot of slack inside the box for mounting the electronics.

Attach the fuse holder to the end of the Red/positive wire.
(Do not attach to the battery yet.)

STEP 4: PLACE CANISTER AND RAILS INSIDE THE TRUCK BED
HARDWARE USED:
You will need a second person to help lift the canister with the rails attached into the truck
bed. Place one hand under the canister and one hand under the rails and place the whole unit
inside the truck bed. The canister and rails will rest on top of the riser bars.
Slide the entire canister and rail assembly forward against the cab end of the truck bed.
Close the tailgate and pull the rails only toward it leaving approximately 1/8” gap between the
end of the rails and the tailgate.

Be sure to hold the canister in place to ensure it does not move from the front truck bed sill
with the rails while adjusting the gap of the rails to the tailgate.

(2) RAIL GRIP BLOCK
(4) CLAMP SPACER
(2) RAIL GRIP BLOCK x 4
FIG. 5A
Before shimming and installing the rail clamps make sure the canister is centered between
the truck bed rails.
(3) CLAMP SHIM x 8
(4 are already attached
to the clamp spacers.)
Take the Clamp Rail Grips (1) and slide 2 on each rail, 6-12” from the canister and 6-12”
from the tailgate.
With the tailgate closed, slide the rails to establish the correct spacing to the tailgate. The
rails have rubber spacers on the end caps, to establish the correct spacing (1/16”) and to
prevent the tailgate from striking the rails when closing. Make sure the canister stays snug
up against the cab end of the truck bed while establishing correct spacing to the tailgate.
Once the rails are correctly placed open the tailgate.
Install the Rail Grip Blocks (2) into the track system on the truck bed. Position them behind
the Clamp Rail Grips (1)
(4) CLAMP SPACER x 4
The between the rail measurement should be 45 3/16”. Use the shims to achieve this
measurement on the front clamp assembly and the tailgate end clamp assembly, take the
Clamp Shims (3) and the Clamp Spacer (4) and fit them behind the Clamp Rail Grip (1) and
up against the inner bed rail lip.
Take the Clamp Rail bolt (5) with the Lock Washer (6) and Flat Washer (7) and put it through
the Clamp Rail Grip (1) and thread it into the Rail Grip Block (2). Tighten the bolts making
sure the rails stay level with the truck bed rails as you tighten.
(5) CLAMP RAIL BOLT x 4
(6) LOCK WASHER x 4
Place the 4 allen screws (8) in the clamp rail grips as indicated in Figure 5a and tighten
them.
Remeasure the distance between the rails (45 3/16”) at the canister and tailgate. This
distance should be the same to allow your cover to operate properly.
Reinstall the OE tie down bar caps.

STEP 6: LUBRICATING & PLACING THE SWEEP SEALS
Locate the sweep seals on the rails. Apply Pace Edwards’
UV Protectant (or 303 brand protectant) to a rag and wipe the
underside of the sweep seal and the top of the surface the rail
rests on. (Figure 6a)

Proper care and placement of the sweep seal will ensure
smooth operation of the cover. Alcohol, petroleum based or
silicon-based cleaners such as Armor-All® should be avoided
and ARE NOT recommended for our covers

The electronics box has been pre-mounted to the inside of the canister.
Connect the battery wire harness into the 2-wire plug at the end of the canister (also
connect the optional manual switch harness, if installed at this time)
Attach the Red (positive) and Black (negative) wires to the battery or the truck manufacturers
suggested connection points at this time.

pushing them in place from under the canister. Drain tube should click into place.
Place the other end of the drain tube through the grommet or through the pre-drilled holes in the floor or the front
wall of the truck bed.

3. Now you should be able to push or pull the paneled blanket
manually open or closed.
NOTE: The blanket will not lock unless you disengage the
kickstand and lower the release handle. With the handle released
the cover will move a short distance and the cover will then lock
itself in place. (Cover may not lock tightly against tailgate)
CANISTER
This process will allow you to use the cover until power is restored. It is not meant for extended or permanent use.
HELPFUL MAINTENANCE HINTS
Drain Tube Fitting
After installation, if the cover is tight or hard to open and close, the shimming
may need to be re-adjusted.
Periodically remove the Top Cover and clean out the canister.
Drain tubes may become clogged overtime and should be removed and cleaned.
To remove the drain tubes you must; Remove the Top Cover, close the cover to
the tailgate, reach in the canister and depress the plastic retaining tabs on the
drain tube fittings and push the drain tube out of the hole in the bottom of the
canister. (Fig. 1)

To help keep the Bedlocker retractable tonneau cover looking its best, we recommend washing it the same as caring
for your truck finish. However due to the hammer texture, removal of wax can be difficult so you should not wax your
cover.
RELEASE HANDLE ASSEMBLY MAINTENANCE
Maintenance of the Release Handle Assembly requires lubrication of the coupler located inside the canister. This is
done during factory assembly but may need to be done from time to time during the life of your cover.
A small lubrication hole is provided on the coupler that a fine tipped grease gun can inject a small amount of grease
into. a high quality waterproof wheel bearing grease is recommended.
To get to the coupler you will need to remove the rail clamps and end caps at the end of the rails. Use the manual
release handle and manually pull the blanket out the end of the rails until you have access to the coupler inside
the canister. Grease the coupler, cycle and spin it to distribute lubricant then reverse the process to re-assemble
the cover being sure to manually push the cover back into place in the caniser. (DO NOT USE THE MOTOR TO
RUN THE BLANKET INTO THE CANISTER OR YOU WILL DAMAGE THE RIB CAPS ON THE EDGES OF THE
BLANKET.)
