Q: Is the cover easy to operate?

The Revolver X2 is possibly the world’s simplest cover to operate. Simply unlock and lower the tailgate, and pull the cable release from either side of the truck bed. There is no heavy lifting and the cover easily rolls with one hand up the bed rails. Closing the cover is even easier with universal tailgate function that lets the user close the tailgate with the cover open or closed.

Q: Is Revolver X2 waterproof?

Revolver X2 performs outstanding to help keep your bed dry. While the OE marine-grade vinyl roll top is seamless and sheds water away easily, OE manufacturers do leave gaps in the sheet metal to allow water to get out, and sometimes these locations allow water in. You can add a tailgate seal to improve the water tight fit.

Q: Can Revolver X2 operate in freezing conditions?

Yes. Just like all products, a little common sense goes a long way. Clear away any snow or ice, using care not to damage the product before you attempt to operate the cover. Don’t force it.

Q: Can I stand on the Revolver X2?

The Revolver X2 can carry up to 400lbs of evenly distributed weight on the top. And yes, it has been stood on for testing purposes simply because customers want to know. This said, we do not recommend standing on the cover for many reasons including safety and possible scuffs.

Q: Does Revolver X2 work with OE track system/tie downs?

Yes. The most popular trucks that commonly have track systems with tie downs are Tundra, Tacoma, Frontier and Titan. The trucks allow the continued use of the track system for tie downs, bed extender mounts and other OE and aftermarket accessories.

Q: Does Revolver X2 require drilling?

No. Revolver X2 installs on most trucks by using a simple C clamp, and the others offer a custom OE installation to pre-existing mounting locations in the bed.

Q: Does Revolver X2 require drain tubes?

No. The watertight OEM marine-grade vinyl and the EPDM seals are superior at shedding the water over the side of the truck, and at keeping water from getting into the bed.

Q: What tools will I need to install the Revolver X2?

- 9/16 wrench
- ½ inch wrench
- *Tacoma and Tundra with OR track systems also require a T30 wrench

Q: What level of skill is needed to install Revolver X2?

Basic mechanical skills will get the Revolver X2 installed. A watertight installation depends on attention to simple details. BAK has over 3,500 dealers in North America who are there to help with both sales and installation if needed.

Q: Will the vinyl hold up?

Yes, depending on normal use and care. BAK uses OEM Marine-grade vinyl to ensure a premium quality that will last. Soap and water wash, shammy dry. Use an approved vinyl cleaner/protectant such as 303 Aerospace Protectant to clean hard water spots and keep the vinyl and seals optimal.

Q: Will the Velcro fail?

Revolver X2 does not use any Velcro. BAK uses a revolutionary patented mechanical locking rail that secures the 50lb roll top the entire length of the truck bed.

Q: Does Revolver X2 use magnets?

No. The Revolver X2 uses rotational locking rails that rotate ¾ inch locking teeth into the roll top locking blocks the entire length of the truck bed. We did all the difficult work in the engineering department so the cover is simple to operate properly.

Q: How do I lock the Revolver X2 if my truck does not have a tailgate lock?

Almost all new trucks now come with tailgate locks standard. If your truck does not have a locking tailgate, then most dealers can help you add one.

Q: Does Revolver X2 rattle?

No, Revolver X2 does not rattle. Pre-applied shims and a 2x larger locking rail ensures the Revolver X2 is locked to the rails and cannot lift or rattle. In addition, the buckles on Revolver X2 are bolted to the top allowing the Revolver X2 to be whisper quiet.

Q: Does Revolver X2 fit flush?

Yes (+/- ¼ inch). The patented Revolver X2 rails drop the cover down inside the rail opening so the cover fits flush with the truck side rails. This means that you will not lose any rear visibility while driving or backing up when the cover is closed.

Q: How big is the roll top when rolled open?

When rolled up, the Revolver X2 diameter is approximately:

6.5” diameter - Short beds 5’ 6”
7” diameter - Standard beds 6’ 6”
7.5” diameter - Long beds 8’

You should be able to see over the roll top to the edge of the tailgate out the back window. The roll top will allow better visibility than an average toolbox, and when rolled open, the Revolver X2 will be shorter than the rear headrests found in most new truck back seats.

Q: Will I be able to see out the back window with Revolver X2 strapped open?

Yes. The Revolver X2 will only block the bottom 1/3rd of the rear window on your average full size truck.

Q: Will the side seals crack over time?

No, in fact the seals used by the Revolver X2 are not rubber. They are EPDM, which is an aero space compound used to manufacture O-rings that go into the engine block. This amazing compound will not crack or degrade over time, and will not expand in severe heat or shrink in sub-zero cold. These qualities ensure the product lasts the life of the average truck.

Q: If my Revolver X2 has a warranty issue, will I get a new replacement top?

That depends on the issue at hand. Often times service parts are provided to address warranty concerns.

Q: Is labor covered under warranty?

No, if you bought the cover online and installed the cover yourself, then you take on the responsibility of the installation being correct, and for any warranty service parts that may need to be installed over the life of the product. Although, if you purchase the cover from local BAK Authorized Dealer and have it installed there, most dealers will typically include follow-up service at no charge. Check with your local BAK Authorized Dealer for more details.

Q: Will Revolver X2 work with overhead racks or headache racks?

That depends on the rack manufacturer. See your local BAK Authorized Dealer for more information on what products work best. 90 degree angle iron base mounts do not work. Mounts that go to the stake pocket hole and sit flat on the top of the bed rail can typically be adjusted to work very well in combination with Revolver X2.

Q: Will Revolver X2 work with a toolbox?

Revolver X2 turns your entire truck bed into a locked toolbox, and the BAKBox2 is offered to provide the organization you need for small parts. You may also find a tool chest that can fit below the rail and under the Revolver X2. At this time Revolver X2 does not work with a cross box style toolbox that goes across the bed on top of the rails.

Q: Will Revolver X2 work with OE accessories?

In most cases yes. Revolver X2 works with OE bed cap protectors, plastic drop-in bed liners and spray-in liners, it also works with tie down/track systems, bed lighting systems, tailgate steps and bed extenders. There are some OE racks and toolboxes that may interfere. Check with your local BAK Authorized Dealer for more details.

Q: Will Revolver X2 work with my 5th wheel hitch, gooseneck hitch or receiver hitch?

Yes.

Q: Can I remove the Revolver X2 easily?

Yes, the Revolver X2 can be removed by unbolting two ½ inch nuts on either side. However, the beauty of the Revolver X2 design is the way it gives access to 100% of the bed without having to remove the cover.
