Historical Info on Herculoc Bed Covers

Herculoc Bed Covers are made by Thacker Mfg Inc of Tucson AZ for contractors, police, emergency services or the ultra serious tailgater. These hard truck bed covers are made of 18-gauge galvanized steel with a white hammer powder coat paint finish(you can also get black or red) and come standard with a dome light. The manually operated “M Series” is designed for contractors and others who need a hard tonneau cover that more closely resembles Fort Knox than a pretty fiberglass tonno. Thacker guarantees the cover cannot be jimmied open! You can add ladder racks and put up to 1000 lbs on top of this cover without affecting its operation. The electrically operated “E Series” is a fav with emergency services and law enforcement. It’s kinda like the pickup truck version of the Batmobile. The lid opens electrically, even with a load on top and is ready when you arrive at the scene because you can drive at up to 75 mph with the lid up.

Herculoc Bed Covers weigh upwards of 200 pounds and require professional installation. Drilling, caulking, denting, etching, clamping and a lot of other mechanical knowledge is required to properly install this security bed cover. Don’t even try to do it yourself unless you’ve got a couple of really handy friends who can easily lift 100 pounds at a time over their head.

Keep Truck Bed Clean & Dry

OK, you've got a Herculoc Bed Cover that's built like a tank. It certainly keeps unwanted individuals out of your truck bed's interior. It also slows the rate at which moisture can escape the truck bed. Maybe a universal absorbent truck mat protector; to suck up coffee or gas spills, and reduce dirt and odors may just be a good idea. Hmmm... just a thought I had. I use them in my truck for just that purpose and to keep my cab mats dry.
