That same thing happened to my uncle a while back with a pallet of concrete, thats the one bad thing about plastic bedliners.

There are better liners but you can still secure your load either way.

The main reason I like plastics bedliners is becuase when I have barrels full of stuff its easy to slide them off. Its also easy to slide a truck load of branches off and stuff.

Your right! I personally don't like the grip type floor liners for offloading of material.

I did the same damage to my tailgate this past season. Of course i did it about a week after making fun of a guy who had a big dent in his tailgate. karma sucks. anyway, i hooked up the trailer, hooked up the chains and even the lights, but forgot to lower the latch on the hitch. Well, needless to say halfway up the ramps with a 8500lb skidder, the trailer comes up and lodges itself in the tailgate. you should have seen this little ding dong here trying to figure out if i should continue up the trailer, back off the trailer or try to move the truck. After a lot of deliberation at 7am in the morning, i finally decided to back down the ramps and hope for the best. luckily all i have now is a small dent about the size of a golf ball. I should be happy that it didn't cave the tailgate or punchture it.

Its been my experience that the longer you put yourself at risk(towing trailers and what not) you are at some point bound by the heavens above to have your trailer, bump,ding,scratch, nick or punture your pickup. Hopefully the one time it happened or (happens) is the last time. Or you have so much money it doesnt hurt that much!lol
