I'm thinking of buying a used hard tonneau cover for about $200. It doesn't come with the 4 latches that mount on bed rail, that the cover lock mechanisms engage into. Anyone know how much they cost from Ford? I'd look for them from a junk yard first, but just in case, I'd like to know new price. Thanks!

locking mechanisms

Did you ever find the locking mechanisms, I just bought an 08 Sport Trac and contacted Ford and they said I have to buy the whole cover.

I answered your question over in the newbie section but I'll paste the answer here as well.

Sounds like you guys all have stretched out cables that just need to be adjusted, had the same problem with three different factory covers over the years. Also spray the latching mechanism on each corner with some PB Blaster. Another thing that you'll want to check is the lock body to make sure that the clip is sill holding it in place and not allowing it to turn when you turn the key, this will make it seem like the cable is stretched but just isn't keeping any tension on the cables to be pulled.
