It's like a toilet paper holder. Push to the right and lift the left side up and out.

i think i lost mine as i can't think of where it could be. I hate that trunk cover as it just gets in the way of loading big stuff so you have to get into the trunk and remove it then takes up more space. I guess there's a purpose to it but i'm happy without it.

I like to use it when I go wine tasting. My purchases have to fit under the cover. Saved me a bit of money. ;-)

First thing I did to my '14 was take it out. As nyrhockey23 says, it gets in the way.

Also my thought is if someone walks by the Jeep and sees the trunk is covered, then there must be something worth hiding, so lets break in and see!

It does fight me sometime, but yeah, grab one end and pull it toward the other end, and up.

I keep mine in, only for the fact that if you're in an accident, it will at least slow down whatever items may be unsecured in the cargo area. But I agree, it can be a pain in the arse when you're trying load certain things, and have to remove it. As far as people walking by and looking in, they pretty much have to take an obvious look through the glass. The tint makes it a bit hard to see just walking by.

I use it to protect cargo from heat or sunlight. It deadens rear end noise and cargo rattles and also has a nice style to it. It does get in the way for bulkier items.

Thieves don't break in to see whats there, only bother if there is something obvious like a iPhone in the front cup holder. Vandals could care less.

I agree with you on this more....in most cases thieves will break in if/when they know something worth stealing is inside the vehicle.

I use it to cover cargo and probably will leave on but wanted to know how to take it off. Mine is stuck or too hard so will ask the dealer to look at it when I am in next.

I have subwoofers and I keep my golf clubs in the back. That cover is always on. Out of sight, out of mind for thieves.
