I just installed my Sentry CT (canvas material as opposed to leather-grain vinyl) this weekend. No, you can't really close the tailgate with the tonneau down. Have to leave it up at the back edge of the cover, shut the tailgate, then push the cover down to latch. Kinda sucks; a certain downside for sure.Do you like it? I have one I am waiting to install. Are you able to close the tailgate with the cover latched down?
Like ICT said, nope, you have to lift up the very end, close the tailgate and then close the cover. It is taking some getting used to, but I liked the ease of removal compared to the Retrax, so went this route. I have read that you can slide the seal out, flip it over and slide it back in so that it goes down/back into the bed, but haven't looked at that option yet - I haven't put the front seal on yet because the weather is not warm enough for me to want to try and get it to stick, but so far it has been fairly water tight in the wind, rain, snow and car washes - both brushless and the larger brush one I found near me.Do you like it?

Here is what I have ... love it .. it is from Neo Garage on this site .... it is clean, no leaks and folds up against back of cab ... FYI .. I replaced the FORD stock cover which sucked ...I've seen a bunch of tonneau covers on here. What's the best? Looking for something low profile but also operates well. Ideally easy to take on and off. Pictures appreciated if you have em!
