One more thing on the back flip. I live in Texas, so it gets pretty hot in the summer. Does the heat affect the backflip?
[Please note that I have the BakFlip HD, which is the heavy-duty all-metal version.]
As far as security goes, you have to lower the tailgate to pull the cord that releases the latch to open the BakFlip, so the tailgate lock is mainly what secures it, and with the way it sits, the top surface flush with the bed rails, I don't think you can fish a coathanger or anything in there to pop it open. (I'm not about to scratch things up trying it out though.)
I've only had it for several months, and the hottest it's gotten here is 90 and sunny, but I don't see where heat would affect it, other than making it darned hot to handle.
