STAPLES.
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!

STEP 2: INSTALL WIRING HARNESS
HARDWARE USED:
(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 bottom of bed separately).
In the truck bed, remove the 2 factory bolts from both of the front upper tie down brackets
using a #50 torx bit and set aside (for step 4).
Remove the 6 factory bolts using a #40 torx bit that hold the front bed panel to the cab.
Temporarily remove front bed panel.
Find the wire harness and remove the fuse holder from the harness. Tape the 2 wires
together where the fuse holder was removed.
WIRE HARNESS x 1
Carefully feed the end of the wire through the bottom of the bed between the cab and the
bottom bed panel. (This step will take one person under the truck with a flashlight to see
and grab the wire when it exits the bed while being fed down from the top.)
ZIP TIES x 5
Run the opposite end of the wire up the left side of the bed wall to the ledge just below
where the upper tie down bracket was.
Leave approximately one foot of slack inside the bed from the front bed panel after it is
reinstalled. Put the front bed panel in place but leave it loose for now.
Pull the remaining slack in the harness under the truck and to the battery in the engine
compartment.
Attach the fuse holder to the end of the red/positive wire.
Reinstall the 6 factory bolts in the front bed panel and tighten them up.
(Do not attach to the battery yet.)
Secure the harness with wire ties provided after slack from the canister has been taken
out.

component box.
Take the M6 bolts with lock washer and flat washer and run them through each of the rear
rail brackets, take the two nylon spacers and put them on the M6 bolts between the truck bed
and back of the bracket (before tightening the M6 bolts be sure that the canister is tight to the
bulkhead to prevent cross threading) (Figure 5a)
Tighten the two M6 bolts.
Place the two front rail bracket screws in between the hole in the upper tie down bracket and

STEP 6: LUBRICATING & PLACING THE SWEEP SEALS
Locate the sweep seals (rubber weather strips) 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 wear strip.
RAIL
Extend the cover to the tailgate. Use an Allen wrench if
needed to carefully draw out the sweep seal (seal should be
angled outwards toward the cover – not rolled in toward the
bed rail). (Fig. 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

STEP 8: INSTALLING DRAIN TUBES
The Ridgeline has standard OE plastic/rubber access ports in the
floor at the front of the truck bed. You will need to use the box knife
to remove these plugs. (Figure 7a)
Once removed use a suitable drill bit (such as a taper drill or step
drill) and drill or create drain tube clearance holes at 3/4” (19mm)
through the removed plugs. (Figure 7b)
Ensure that the foam washer is in place on the drain tube end
being inserted into the bottom of the canister (This will prevent
water leakage).

Test fit the drain tube to determine the length you want to trim it.
Always caution on the long side.
FIG.7a
With the cover opened, insert the drain tube fittings into the predrilled holes on the underside of the canister by firmly pushing
them in place from under the canister. Drain tube should click into
place. (This is a tight fit that may require much pressure and a
slight turning of the tube as it is being pushed in.)

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.)
