Out of sight, out of mind. That's at least one of the philosophies behind bed covers for pickups. A tonneau not only covers your cargo, it also keeps air from rushing over the cab and into the bed, saving you fuel over the long haul. Tonneau covers are also fairly easy to install for the average driveway mechanic, especially the new generation of soft tonneaus. Many of them feature an aluminum frame construction and easy snap-on design for a snug fit. Tonneau Masters, a division of Sport Masters Inc., has developed a new clamp-on soft tonneau cover that installs in minutes and fits like a glove. The new Tonneau Master roll-up tonneau cover is a low-profile, snapless unit, using a heavy-duty hook and Velcro loop system to attach the material to the frame instead of the conventional snap setup.

The Tonneau Master roll-up cover mounts to contoured rails that clamp to the inside of the truck bed, providing access to the stake pockets and giving the tonneau a custom, tapered appearance. The tonneau, which has reinforced and finished corners, also features integral bows in the cover, which roll up and out of the way when the cover is stored, leaving plenty of room for cargo and eliminating the need to remove the bows separately. Keeping things taut is an automatic adjustable rear tension control, which is built into the rails and makes for a latched closing at the rear.

The whole system can be installed in less than 10 minutes and gives the truck a finished look when in place. Tonneau Masters can also do custom applications to accommodate such things as bed-mounted toolboxes. The Tonneau Master is offered in a variety of vinyl colors and styles. Sport Masters also offers several other styles of soft tonneaus as well.

To prove how easy it is to install, Bill Thomas of Tonneau Masters showed up at our Placentia, California, offices with a handful of tools to install one of the company's new Tonneau Master roll-up tonneaus on a late-model Chevy. Ten minutes later, he was finished and the truck looked great.
