The Most Secure Chevy Tonneau Cover

What does that exactly mean when it comes to tonneau cover security – or rather, keeping your cargo safe in your truck bed and protected from theft in your absence? It means everything! Protect yours with the most secure tonneau cover in the hard tonneau cover market. We supply hard tonneau covers for the following models: Chevy 1500, Chevy 2500 and Chevy 3500.

Tonneau Cover Security and the Load Capacity Myth – The Most Secure Chevy Tonneau Cover Excels Where It Matters Most: Acute Pinpoint Attack Loads and Penetration Deterrence, Not Distributed Weight

Most tonneau cover manufacturers will cite a load capacity metric in an attempt to prove how secure and tough their covers are, and we certainly excel when it comes to distributed weight loads. However, this is a misleading security metric, and not one we cite when we here at Stowe talk about our tonneau cover and security.

Load weights are a metric that show how well your product will hold an amount of weight across the object safely, and there are no standardized tests to determine exactly what that is when it comes to tonneau covers. But that’s not even the point; it’s a bad metric to use in the first place. When an attack occurs, the force isn’t distributed; it is pinpoint against one spot on the cover. Distributed weight load excellence is great if you are placing a 4-wheeler on your cover, but almost meaningless when it comes to deterrence of a theft incident. That attack will be violent and at specific points, such as a sledging, smashing, or pry-barring of your cover. This is why our most watched video is our infamous Sledgehammer Attack video. It’s almost hard to believe just how much sledging our cover, at its weakest point, will endure and deter.

The Most Secure GMC Tonneau Cover – The Stowe 2-in-1 – What’s Different from Other, Less Secure Tonneau Covers

When it comes to tonneau cover security, building the most secure GMC tonneau cover took looking at the challenge differently. We looked at it as if we were one of the Big 3 auto manufacturers, not simply as an aftermarket truck parts builder. Once you make that decision, everything is different. But here are a few specific differences that really matter when it comes to a secure tonneau cover.

Ford F150 Gooseneck Tonneau Covers

When it comes to the most secure Chevy tonneau cover in the market, what does that look like and why? Tonneau cover security is all about delaying and demotivating potential theft threats. It’s inevitable that someday, someone is going to try it on, and take a pry bar to your tonneau cover to find out what’s lying beneath that you are trying to secure and protect. When it comes down to the most secure tonneau cover, it’s all about demotivating the perpetrator. Here at Stowe, with our roots in the OEM automotive industry, we looked at building the most secure tonneau cover through the eyes of a true automotive engineer – because that’s exactly what we are. By definition, we looked at security the same way car manufacturers do. In their terms it’s all about how long, and with how much effort, will it take to break in. It’s all about noise and delay. They are both your friends when it comes to engineering the most secure tonneau cover in the market, and protecting your valuables!

Let’s Take a Look at What Stowe Did to Engineer the Most Secure Chevy Tonneau Cover

Now we know that it’s all about noise and delay. If we demotivate the perpetrator, then the chances increase that with every second of delay, they will simply leave before they gain complete access to your truck box. This was the goal behind security engineering here at Stowe Cargo, and the development of the Stowe 2-in-1 tonneau cover.

How did we build the most secure tonneau cover? We simply looked at it through the eyes of a true automotive manufacturer, not an aftermarket tonneau cover company. That meant using the same technology and materials the OEMs use to protect your truck itself from unauthorized entry. Seems so simple we just don’t understand why the other tonneau cover manufacturers don’t do the same.

The Most Secure Chevy Tonneau Cover

WHAT MAKES OUR Chevy TONNEAU COVERS THE MOST SECURE TONNEAU COVERS?

Parts and process. Simply stated, we started with the base premise that we needed to create a cover that would have the longest time to entry, and require the greatest amount of noise and effort to gain that access. And in using the same security methodologies that the major car manufacturers themselves use, we were able to do just that. We used the toughest, most secure and hardened locking components in the industry; and we designed them in such a way with regard to placement that they would create an environment where it would be extremely difficult to gain entry – the most difficult, in fact, that the tonneau cover market has to offer.

The Most Secure Chevy Tonneau Cover in the Market Needs the Most Secure Cover Panel – or It’s All for Nought

You guessed it, the Stowe 2-in-1 has the most durable – in fact, nearly indestructible – tonneau cover panel available. Watch our Sledgehammer Attack video below to see just how tough our cover panel is!
So, understanding that in order to have the most secure tonneau cover in the market means you need the toughest tonneau cover panel ever engineered, we set out to build an automotive-grade tonneau cover panel that could address several key issues when it comes to tonneau cover forced entry:

  1. Had to be the toughest and most rugged panel, to thwart any sledging through it
  2. Had to deflect but not break – or in the case of diamond-plate covers, disfigure – allowing for pry-bar entry at the seams and edges after hammering and sledging. The cover simply had to resist entry with minimal deformation in any way that would allow further undeterred access.
  3. Had to frustrate the most ambitious of burglars!

THE MOST SECURE Chevy TONNEAU COVER – THE STOWE 2-in-1 – WHAT’S DIFFERENT FROM OTHER, LESS SECURE TONNEAU COVERS

Ram 2500 Gooseneck Tonneau Covers

When it comes to tonneau cover security, building the most secure tonneau cover took looking at the challenge differently. We looked at it as if we were one of the Big 3 auto manufacturers, not simply as an aftermarket truck parts builder. Once you make that decision, everything is different. But here are a few specific differences that really matter when it comes to a secure tonneau cover.

Perception is Reality When it Comes to the Most Secure Tonneau Covers in the Market

As in most things, perception is reality. Today most customers believe that their tonneau covers (or in fact all tonneau covers) are relatively secure; but nothing could be further from the truth. After all, who would build an insecure tonneau cover? It’s why you bought it in the first place: to keep your valuables safe, secure, and dry. We all know that many of the tonneau covers in the market leak from day one. But what everyone takes for granted is that they are safe and secure. Yet how can anything that uses plastic latches; thin, frail covers; and small-diameter, long-run rods be anything near secure? They can’t. They aren’t.

Stowe Cargo – The Most Secure Chevy Tonneau Cover Available Today!

The hard panels on the Stowe system are lightweight, yet strong and durable. The panels are constructed of high-tech composites supported by extruded aluminum frames, providing a strong and secure platform for the front and rear covers. Tough enough to handle a violent sledgehammer attack.

To actuate the lock-and-latch system, Stowe incorporated tough pushbutton entry locks, which provide quick and easy access to your stowed gear, and are protected from snow and ice intrusion. The locks are connected to automotive-grade steel rotary latches, which provide added strength and security to the lock system. NO pull-rods or plastic components. The latches are based on similar technology to that which is used in the doors of the truck: steel and rugged.

THE TROUBLE WITH MOST TONNEAU COVERS

If you’re considering a hard tonneau cover because it offers better security than a soft one, you’re on the right track. But that still doesn’t mean it’s secure enough. In fact, if you closely examine all the hard covers out there, you’ll discover that each type depends on simple, easy-to-defeat aftermarket approaches to lock and release the cover.

The most popular is the plunger slam latch, an inexpensive aftermarket design that most folding and retractable covers use. It works much like your bathroom door latch, with a simple plastic plunger that drops into a receiver to latch the door. Yes, plastic. You can of course imagine how easy it would be to lift your bathroom door open by jamming a pry bar into the door frame. Well, these plastic plunger latches are just as vulnerable to even the simplest break-in efforts – if not more so.

Another popular aftermarket approach that will suffer a similar fate is the handle and lever concept, where a handle is used to rotate a finger paddle into a receiver. Good luck with that cover.

One other simplistic aftermarket design used in one-piece and some folding covers is a push-pull rod system, which relies on a small-diameter rod extending out and under the truck bedrail to hold the cover closed. All the pry bar has to do here is simply bend the rod to release the cover.

The point is, the whole history of tonneau covers is basically making passable, penny-skimping efforts, and then reissuing a patched-up, “new and improved” version when the complaints get too loud. Frankly, that’s the approach of an aftermarket add-on, not an OEM built-in. And it’s why we started Stowe Cargo – to reinvent the whole tonneau-cover industry, and bring you ingenious, groundbreaking, next-gen solutions that incorporate only the smartest designs, the most innovative engineering, and the highest-quality materials.

That’s why our covers don’t leak. Why they literally stand up to sledgehammers. And why our revolutionary 2-in-1 tonneau comes with a built-in toolbox: To give you more organization, more protection, more satisfaction. Just compare them detail by detail, and you’ll understand: You deserve more. And at Stowe, you get it!
