Burbird- Welcome to the Forum. My boot aka tonneau cover was also initially difficult to snap on. It took a good ten minutes of messing with it before we got it fully attached. You will find that after a few times the fabric will loosen and it will get progressively easier. If you absolutely cannot get it to fasten properly, I'd let the dealer do it, leave it on for a few days, and maybe that would do the trick and stretch it enough that you could do it yourself. Also, it goes on easier if you start from the outside snap and move toward the center on both sides.

Make sure the outside edges are tucked under the body. Also, many people did not notice that the figure 8 plastic straps on the boot snaps are there so you can move the snaps back & forth in the slots for alignment purposes. Once snapped then can rotate plastic straps out of view under boot.

Good advice. It took me awhile to figure out just what you are suggesting. HAVE TO HAVE THE ENDS OF TOP TUCKED

burbird,
Try a "very small" amount of Vaseline to
help the snaps move more easily.
