Admittedly, this is a stretch...
Has anybody heard of crash tests where a folding bed cover like
BakFlip's HD was evaluated as a sort of dynamic headache rack/cab
In the BakFlip spiel, they tout the HD as a cab protector when it is
fully folded up against the back window.
But that begs the question of what happens in a frontal crash when, for
instance, there's maybe a Skil saw, a few hammers, and a small generator
in the bed with the bed cover in it's normal flat position.
One would hope that the foremost panel of the cover would break
upwards, giving some energy absorption at the back window...
But, short of an actual crash test, who knows?
