Picked up (actually ordered) a Leer HF650M from the Leer site. Tonn75 gets you $75.00 off the cover (any cover I think). Shipping was free!
I have a tonneau on my current truck and love it. The Leer was less expensive than Ford's covers and I am not sure Ford is using Bakflip anymore anyway. I wanted the ability to fold the cover up against the glass.Is it really work the 900+ though?
Well, first, I paid about $100 less for the HF650M. What really swayed me, though, is the pinch release on the panels. In theory, for someone to get into the HF650M you have to open the tailgate. It would be difficult to get to the pinch clamps and release the top with the tailgate shut.I am on the fence between the Leer HF650M and the UnderCover Armor Flex. Did you consider both, and if so, what leaned you towards the Leer?
HF650M came in on Wednesday. Good price and fast service/ship directly from Leer. Can't wait to get it installed on the truck (that I don't have).
same here. I chose the hf650m because of the pinch mechanism. Just making it harder for the criminal to break into my trunk. Easy install. Took me 15 minutes to install.Well, first, I paid about $100 less for the HF650M. What really swayed me, though, is the pinch release on the panels.

On the UnderCover, which uses a simple wire mechanism, there is enough play in the tailgate panel to get a coat hanger or other hook into the bed, hooked on the wire, and viola your cover is open and your stuff is gone. I realize anything can happen, but in my mind I was getting a great cover, with better security, at a more acceptable price.
not completely waterproof, I had some water come in through the front and back(tailgate). Front seems to need a seal strip. they provided a rubbery strip, but it is not mention on the instructions. Doesn't look like a standard seal strip, so I didn't install it at the front. The tailgate will always allow water no matter what tri/quad fold tonneau cover you use.
