. Meaning with the cover closed and tailgate power locked (from the remote), it's entirely secure from the outside. A simple click of the remote to unlock the tailgate, open it and the Dee Zee lowers the gate effortlessly, and exposes the cover release if you want to open it up.
I thought that too, until I looked at video on you tube pitching another brand of folding cover. The guy takes a 12'' piece of coat hangar, bends the tip and pops open Bak flip cover in about 5 seconds
. I really can not decide which cover to buy. I mean each of different types has it's merits(other than snap covers, which make great landfill-nothing else). Nothing is secure, and to me, it's coming down to how much I want to spend. I have had a Bak flip G2 in the past, and it was an absolutely fantastic cover- but I found it used(barley) on CL, for $250(it was on a Ridgeline). At that price nothing would beat it! I need to find a deal like that for my new F150, but there are too many Ford guys out there looking for a deal like I am. Seriously, I am most likely to go with a Access Lorado, bought thru this form marketplace. I was quoted a REALLY good price, and I don't have to worry about coons in my neighborhood(yet)
