Retractable Tonneau Covers with PowerGate: Is it Worth the Extra Dollars?

Whether you already own a retractable tonneau cover by Pace Edwards or are thinking of buying one in the near future, consider adding the amazing feature of PowerGate. PowerGate was created by Pace Edwards to improve security and enhance versatility for retractable tonneau covers. It can be used with Pace Edwards retractable tonneaus, including the BedLocker, Jackrabbit and Full Metal Jackrabbit. For less than $100 extra, PowerGate enables you to lock and unlock your tonneau cover in sync with your main truck door locks.

This device was invented with security in mind. Imagine being able to immediately lock your tonneau every time you lock your truck doors. Many truck bed covers have to be locked in place manually, or come with a remote control that locks only the tonneau cover. Unfortunately, you can easily lock your doors and forget to secure your tonneau cover. This can happen due to distractions or busyness when you're out and about running errands.

If you forget to lock your tonneau cover, this could leave your valuable cargo exposed to thieves. A malicious person can easily open the tonneau and get to your items even if your cab area is locked. This can happen in just a moment of time...while paying for your fuel, taking a restroom stop, dining out, visiting friends, working on the job, or even in your own driveway while you sleep! Expensive items such as work tools, boots, fishing or hunting gear, luggage, etc. can be taken without your knowledge if your tonneau cover is left unsecured.

Like most truck owners, you're probably already in the habit of locking the doors to your truck cab area. So with PowerGate you won't have to "remember" anything. You'll just simply lock your doors as usual, and have peace of mind that your tonneau cover will lock every time. PowerGate simplifies the process by providing one remote for all-around security.

Features of PowerGate

PowerGate has a stainless steel backing plate and slide bolt with a nylon guide block, which helps prevent corrosion between metals. It comes with a plug-and-go wiring harness. If your truck does not already have power door locks, PowerGate has an optional switch kit to make the transition easy. Recent models have an upgraded push-pull actuator for better gearing, which provides longer life for the product.

An application guide and detailed installation instructions for various truck makes and models are available at the Pace Edwards manufacturer website. PowerGate can be applied to certain models of Chevrolet/GMC, Ford, Dodge and Toyota. Not all models are included, so be sure to check the application guide before ordering. Most trucks can have PowerGate installed without drilling, but you should read over the instructions for your particular model so you will know what to expect. Minor wiring is required, and some installations are easier than others. Most applications are quick, do-it-yourself projects so you can rest easy and order your PowerGate with confidence.

PowerGate accessories include a crew cab extension, a switch kit, PowerGate wire harnesses "A" and "B," and a PowerGate Actuator. A wiring harness (LK1033-1) is included with all kits.

Considering how busy our lives can become on a daily basis, PowerGate seems to be a wise addition to your Pace Edwards retractable tonneau cover. It provides security for your valuable cargo while also making it easy to lock all areas of your truck with one push of the button. Most truck owners would answer YES to the question, "Is it worth the added dollars?" With PowerGate, your truck will have added value that you can depend on for many years to come!
