HELP!! Leer 700 Tonneau cover lock will not unlock
HELP!!! I'm trying to get into a Leer 700 Tonneau cover on a F150 .
The key turns but it wont unlock the handle . It seems to be as if the cam on the lock came off .
Is there a way to open it without damaging the cover. Can someone post a picture of the locking system so I can try to get this open without damage to the cover or tailgate. Any ideas would help.
Late reply here, but I think it will depend on the year the cap was made.
I can tell you that the one I had on my 2003 Silverado had latches inside that activated with a cable that pulled a lever on the latch. Mine had a button style lock - you pushed it with your thumb vs. a lever/T handle that you rotate. I believe I got the cap in 2004.
If the latches are the same style I had you can reach inside the side of the cap and attempt to pop the latch levers with a piece of coat hanger or something. It would not be easy to do, I can tell you that much.
