It offers maximum protection against weather, theft, and damage. LEER one-piece covers are made from incredibly strong fiberglass with a custom-fit design and low-profiling. Plus, they provide unmatched security with a rear-mounted flip-lock handle with rotary latches.

Your LEER tonneau cover is a valuable investment that can protect your truck bed for years to come if properly cared for. With the right maintenance, you can ensure it lasts for the long haul. Let’s explore how to properly care for your LEER cover and keep it clean and functional. 

Routine Tonneau Cover Maintenance 

It’s important to get into the habit of regularly inspecting your tonneau cover for signs of wear, loose components, or potential problems. Tighten any loose bolts or fasteners to ensure everything remains secure, and make sure to address minor issues like ripped seams or tears promptly to prevent additional damage. 

How to Clean a Tonneau Cover 

How often you clean your cover depends on usage and environment. For frequent highway driving, a seasonal cleaning will likely suffice. After off-road adventures or exposure to harsh elements, a quick clean is recommended to keep your LEER cover looking great and working properly.

Here are some cleaning do’s and don’ts for your LEER tonneau cover:

  • Do use mild soap and warm water for regular cleaning. 
  • Do use a soft sponge or microfiber cloth to avoid scratching the cover. 
  • Don’t use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, since these can damage the finish.

Basic LEER cover cleaning steps:

  1. Rinse the cover with clean water to remove loose dirt and debris. 
  2. Wash the cover with a mild soap and water solution. Make sure to use a soft sponge or microfiber cloth that won’t damage the finish or material. 
  3. Rinse the cover thoroughly with clean water to remove soap residue. 
  4. Allow the cover to air-dry completely before folding or rolling it up. This avoids mold and mildew development.
