Roll up tonneaus fasten to your truck bed rails with a heavy duty velcro like material. When rolled up all the way they are stored at the front of your truck bed.  

Retractable Tonneau Covers
Retractable covers, like Pace Edwards and Roll-N-Lock, operate very much like a garage door. They can be made of an aluminum support structure sandwiched between vinyl or other materials. A canister mounted at the front of you truck bed rails will contain the cover itself as it is rolled up. Typically retractable covers can be key locked to your truck tailgate. Some are electric and can open or close automatically with the touch of a remote button.
