Benefits of Using a BAKFLIP MX4 Cover on Your Truck

A lot of tonneau covers are available in the market for truck owners. This becomes challenging for those truck owners because of the variety of tonneau covers. The protection of the truck bed is the main priority of many pickup truck owners. The truck bed is; simply not able to keep small, and mobile items in the bed because anyone can reach your stuff and; would walk off with it. Many truck owners buy BAKFLIP cover for their truck’s bed, known as tonneau covers, for some level of protection.

Most of the tonneau cover designs emphasize protection or convenience. Getting into it quickly; it’s not safe. If you have a few extra layers of protection and access will likely take some time. These are the reasons why so many people struggle to choose between different truck bed cover options: low profile covers, roll-up tonneau covers, folding covers, retractable covers.

BAKFLIP has strived to strike the right balance between protection and comfort with the MX4 Soft Bedspread. Featuring a tri-ply design and aluminum panel sections, this is a heavy-duty tri-fold tonneau cover for both; protection and comfort.

Benefits of using BAKFLIP MX4 Cover


BAKFLIP MX4 cover does not have any built-in locking system. It is designed; for the security of your truck’s bed. The deformation of the panel; is laborious because it can withstand up to 400 lbs. of weight on them.

The cover is locked, into the position with a slide latch. The latch is only accessible if the tailgate is folded down, and the latch effectively secures the truck bed. Latch and tailgate prevent the truck bed access and protects the cover as well.

Leak Resistance

The tonneau cover is designed; to repel the water. The owner of the truck can keep their stuff safe from the moisture or rain in the truck bed because; the tonneau cover keeps the moisture out of the truck bed. There is a rubber seal system to avoid any water leakage. The water might leak along the rail edges of the cover.

There is a built-in drain that wicks moisture away from the rail and onto the; sides of the truck. Most of the moisture will drain away, but a small amount will enter the truck bed. Even in heavy rain, moisture leakage is minimal, but your truck bed will not be 100% dry using this cover.
