Yeah. The cam on the one I got was flipped another 90 degrees somehow. I had to remove the bolt and turn it to get it to sit correctly.

You're welcome! Hope it comes in handy for many more people! Also, for anyone doing this, grab some white lithium and spray the scissor hinge! Winter is coming and these plastic handles are known to snap at the slightest resistance in the cold!

Looks like I needed a wash job the camera don't lie,LOL! Having a hard tonneau and locking tailgate gives you a little more security. When we go to three grocery stores to get what we need I lock mine everytime and with my hard cover I feel more secure.

Probably 4 or 5 months,they say to give it a squirt of graphite occasionally if your truck sets in the weather a lot.

No issues but i bet if a thief really wanted in my bed even with the solid aluminum tonneau and Pop n lock all they would need is a crowbar instead of a pocket knife. But better than nothing.
