Even if the velcro comes unglued from the edges it is not what holds it down. The velrco just keep it tight. The aluminum cross memeber on the end snaps into a latch and that makes it impossible for it to come loose while driveing. And if for some reason that the velcor on the sides Ever comes loose, it has a lifetime warranty so they will replace/fix it for free. I have had the Access cover I gave Grant for 8 years and I abused it. It still looks like new and the velcro shows no signs of coming loose. It is a Very well made piece. I hightly reccommend them. I paid $350 bucks for it, but when you take into account the convienance and the fact it will outlast your truck, the extra 100 bucks or so is well worth it.

Ive got a cheapie LeBra cover with the tongue and groove rails and it works extremely well. Very easy to get on and of and it was MUCH cheaper then any other tonneau I found out there.

Well I ended up buying the full tilt by extang and it's amazing. It's very quality and the ability to lift up and/or take it off is sooo nice. If it was my vote, it would be for a tilt tonneau!
