When Putting The Top Up Remember To...

Make sure you remove the tonneau cover FIRST.

Don't ask, just check to make sure you have removed it.

That's exactly why the 2011's had the thin plastic clips on them! The engineers all think, or know, we're inept (nothing towards you Pnyklr, I did it too...). They intentionally designed the clips to pop off the posts under pressure, unfortunately too little pressure! The clips I designed will not come off the post, even under full load from the top raising, so I've been very careful to ensure the cover is removed first.
I assume you have (had) the bungee cord loops? Any damage to the cover or car?

My love is in league with the freeway. Its passion will ride, as the cities fly by, and the tail-lights dissolve in the coming of night. And the questions in thousands take flight ~Robert Plant - Big Log~
