All Current Model Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite Hard Folding Tonneau Covers no longer Require Drilling

Steffens Automotive has developed a new clamp-on mounting system for all of their G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover hard folding tonneau covers. It no long requires drilling or adhesive tape for most current model trucks.

Online PR News – 01-November-2012 – Caledonia, MI – Steffens Automotive has developed a new, simpler way to install it’s G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover on most current model pickup trucks. This new method requires no drilling into the truck bed making installation easier and faster, while allowing adjustments to be made after installation.

Steffens Automotive, manufacturer of Fold-a-Cover products, is always coming up with new and innovative ways to make their products more consumer friendly. Users of the products voiced concerns that they preferred not to drill into their truck bed rails, and that while the adhesive mount solved the main problem, it still did not allow for adjustments after the install. As a customer-focused company, Fold-a-Cover welcomed the feedback and support from their users.

The next step was to develop an improved system that is easily adjustable. As of June 2012 most of the current model year application G4 Elite Fold-a-Cover rail systems coming from the Fold-a-Cover Factory Store ( have been redesigned to be used with the clamp-on mounting system. This will allow for easy installation without drilling into the truck bed and will allow for large or small adjustments to be made any time after the entire installation has been completed.

The only applications that this does not apply to is covers for the Nissan Frontier, Chevrolet Colorado, and GMC Canyon. These covers will still require our adhesive mounting rail system.

Steffens Automotive introduced their flagship product, the Fold-a-Cover, in 1988 making it the auto industry’s first hard folding tonneau cover. They have continued to bring innovative and quality products to the market such as the LS series in 2000 and the G4 Elite Model in 2007 which pairs with the Personal Caddy. 2007 also marked a new product line, the Style Step, a luxury step tube which brought home the 2007 SEMA Best New Product Award in the Truck & SUV category.
