How easy is it to re-install the cover?
Basically it is the reverse of the top three steps which are as follows:
STEP 1: Place tonneau on truck positioning female hinges on tonneau cover over tangs on front brackets and install split rings into holes in male tang on front brackets to secure the cover to the truck bed. Again, BE SURE TO INSTALL SPLIT RINGS BEFORE ATACHING THE GAS STRUTS IN STEP 2! Now the cover is securely attached to the truck bed, you need to attach the hydraulic struts.
STEP 2: Lift tonneau up with one hand, and with the palm of your other hand, push the strut over the ball stud of the rear bracket. You do not need to pry out the retaining clip when re-installing the hydraulic struts.
STEP 3: Be sure that the front flap seal hangs over the bulkhead of the truck and is not rolled up under the tonneau after installation. This "flap over" provides you with additional weather resistance along the front edge of the cover. Make sure this rubber flap is not folded or rolled up under the tonneau after installation. If the front flap (seal) is rolled up under the tonneau, simply open up the tonneau and from the inside, just use a yardstick or something similar to simply push the flap seal out from under the tonneau and over the front edge of the truck bed (bulkhead).
