Bully Integrated Tailgate Lock for 1999-2007 GM Pickups Review

Video Transcript for Bully Integrated Tailgate Lock for 1999-2007 GM Pickups Review

Today we are going to review part number LH-003, the tailgate lock from Bully. This particular lock is specific for GMC Sierras and Chevy Silverados, for model years 1999 to 2007. Our replacement tailgate locking system consists of three pieces. We have our black plastic replacement bezel, the inner locking mechanism and then two keys. This system works great in combination with your trucks camper shell or tonneau cover to provide maximum security for your trucks bed. 0:30

Let us go ahead and take a look to see how easy it is to install one of these on our truck. The first thing that we need to do is go ahead and remove the original bezel that is on the vehicle. To do that, we need to release four clips. There are two here at the top and two here at the bottom. We are going to start by releasing the top clips and to do that we just want to take a flat head screwdriver and go ahead and pry in there until you hear them release. And then for the bottom clips, they are actually facing down. So we need to actually lift up on the bezel to get those to release. Next, we want to go ahead and open the tailgate. We need to remove the bottom retaining bolt. And then we can go ahead and close the tailgate again and we are going to go ahead and start installing our locking mechanism. 1:25

What we are going to do is feed it into the opening here. And what we are going to attempt to do is align this hole in the top of the mechanism with the hole from the screw that we had just removed. So what we want to do is go ahead and the key into the locking mechanism and go ahead and rotate it down. Go ahead and align the two holes. And then, with the provided screw and washer, go ahead and it from the inside of the tailgate and thread it into the locking mechanism. And with the locking mechanism installed, you can see that now in the open position the inner workings of the tailgate are allowed to work freely. 2:04

When we rotate it into the lock position, the arm of the locking mechanism comes up into position and prevents the handle from opening. And install our new bezel And again we want to make sure that we place the clips in properly. We want to go ahead and put the bottom clips in first into the holes. We will rotate it up and go ahead and set the other ones into position. You can see we have perfect alignment with the locking mechanism below. And that is all there is to it. In just a couple of minutes we have our new locking handle into position and it has a great OEM look to it. And that will conclude the review and installation of part number LH-003 from Bully.

Purchased the LH-003 for my '04 Silverado, only regret is I should have bought it sooner. Product has OEM fit/function and installation was easier than "oatmeal", in fact, it literally took me seven minutes from start to finish and two minutes of that was unpacking the item. Similar to other locking devices this will not preclude a determined thief from getting to the contents behind the lock but it will "keep honest folks honest". The keys are heavy duty, I liken them to the OEM Chevy ignition key and not likely to bend/break under normal use. The locking mechanism is of solid form and function, just keep in mind it is a simple locking mechanism and only contacts one side of the tailgate latch when locked...not a big deal and it does preclude both latches from opening when the lock is engaged but the user will notice that the tailgate handle will have more "pull" on the left than on the right but this is a normal function of this type of locking device. Business with e-Trailer is absolutely the best, secure ordering, fast shipping (did I say fast?) and outstanding customer follow-up...cannot think of anything else e-Trailer could do to improve my experience. 106109

Recently bought a hard bed cover for my 06 Silverado and wanted to lock the tailgate. I purchased the Tailgate Lock through etrailer. The product arrived on time and complete. The instructions were easy and the installation was a breeze. The only thing I would change is the mounting bolt. It would be nice if it matched the existing bolts. However for the price and ease I highly recommend this product. 79725

The product is ok but i had a few issues with it, all cosmetic however. The first being that the hole left for the lock on the replacement bevel did not line up exactly so the top part is actually on top of the locking mechanism instead of being on the bevelled edge of the mechanism. Secondly, the tabs on the top of the bevel piece would barely latch onto the sheet metal of the tailgate. So little in fact that i needed to modify it a bit by taking a dremel to the tabs to open the space to get them to actually "pop" into place. Before I modified it all I had to do was apply pressure with one finger and the bevel would pop out abot a quarter inch on the top. The last issue is the sides of the bevel don't seem to conform to the tailgate. They stick out about 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch on both sides instead of being flush. The lock works great, it is the bevel replacement piece that I had the problems with. 79394

I recently purchased one of these for my 04 Silverado. I watched the video on instalation and let me tell you, It really is that easy.But like the instructions say "if it's too cold warm the new one before installing. I wound up breaking the two upper tabs on the old one trying to remove it. It was very cold. Today I installed the lock in just 2 minutes.Earlier today it was only 16 degrees so I warmed up the new one by wrapping it in a towel and sticking it by a heat vent in the house for about half an hour. Went outside and popped it right on. A little tip for you. Put a piece of duct tape on the tailgate right at the edge of the old plastic. I then used a small plastic putty knife to slide under the cover and another to find the exact location of the tabs. A great product & I highly recommend it. The service from etrailer is unbeatable. Bob. 29803

Device is easy to install, but be careful when doing it. Try not to break original plastic handle cover(you might want to use it again). When installing DON'T TIGHTEN the screw holding the lock in place, especially if you use the security screw. If you do, the lock won't work and tailgate won't close...ask me how I know. Adjust screw with tailgate closed. Lastly, get some 3m double sided adhesive and place on new replacement plastic to keep it attached. My cover didn't snap in place and fell off on the first bump I hit. Thanks to great customer service, etrailer.com got manufacturer to send me a replacement. With better fit and instructions I would have rated this item higher as locking unit and replacement cover were well made...just a little tricky to install easily. 25819

Easy to install, most of the time was removing the tail gate cover to get to the screws I needed to remove. If you do not have a tail gate cover, maximum time to install is at the most 10-15 minutes tops. I highly recommend this lock to secure the tail gate. It looks like a factory item. Highly recommend installing one. 104431

This is one of the best investments I've made and it works perfectly! The door on the LEER shell I just put on my truck (06 Silverado) locks but my tailgate didn't so it was a huge worry for me that someone would just open it and get in there, either at home, the store or out camping. Shipping was fast, the item and all the parts associated were a perfect fit and SUPER easy to install! This seems like a real nice, quality part that wont break, bend or just wear out anytime soon. Watch the video and it'll take you like 5 minutes to install this lock. Don't be skeptical like I was, if you need this, buy it and install it, you wont regret it! 73538

I had also bought a new OEM handle to go along with this lock product. The instruction video made the installation seem extremely simple. However, the handle bars that open the tailgate and make the lock work had to be adjusted, and anyone can access the parts to bend them to gain access with the lock in position. I would appreciate a call to see what else can be done to assist with this issue. My phone # is on file. I had planned on purchasing more items from you, however I need them to be more dependable. 64013

This was really easy to install, just as the video shows. The photo shows two bolts/screws with no description. One is a standard phillips and the other has a security head. I used the security head since I don't currently use a bed cover. The fit was great, just like stock, and the lock mechanism lined up nicely with the hole in the bezel. The only downside is the handle now looks totally faded with the new bezel so I'll have to break out the supplies and shine it back up! 80672

I bought the first one in 2011 for my 2007 Chevy Silverado and it's worked flawlessly ever since. Easy to install. Bought the second one just for the bezel because the latch handle on the Chevy sheared and unfortunately, the bezel will also break when being removed. At least the Chevy's always do. So bought the kit to get the bezel in case this one breaks also. Have bought other items from etrailer and have always been treated great. Will buy again! Thanks. 77787

Looks as good if not better than the OEM bezel . I installed it in about fifteen minutes with the lock . Price is less than the OEM and the OEM bezel does not include a lock for the tail gate . I am 73 years old and if I can install this anyone can . 104242

The tailgate lock took 3 days to arrive, using the "free" freight. The instructions were concise and detailed, with pictures, which made installation easy . Because the bed of my truck is lined, it took more time just to remove the lining on the inside of the tailgate, just so I could get to the bolt holding in the old mechanism.Once installed, the unit looks origonal and works very well. I'm very satisfied with this tailgate lock. 114840

Very easy to install. No problems with the supplied hardware. I only wish you could reuse the same bolt that you take out as it is larger and retains factory look and matches if you've got a sprayed in bedliner. The keys supplied are huge, bigger than the factory ignition key. They don't need to be that big. The plastic overmold barely fits on the keyring. The supplied bezel matches the factory look 100%. 18146

I installed the lock as per the instructions. It worked great for a while then it started to jam and I thought i would not be able to open my tailgate. I took another look at the installation and it was installed correctly. It works sometimes and other times I have to play with it to make it work. I have sence stopped locking my tail gate. 13383

Product looks and works great. Installation was a breeze, but I did have to trim some excess flash that was in the cutout for the lock. I painted mine white at the dealership to match the body, and the fit and look is excellent. Customer service was excellent, and delivery was very quick. That is partially attributable to living in MO. 125321

Install is quite easy. If you have access to a machine shop, you can machine the original screw from the tailgate down to an M6-1.0 then use that for the install. This will leave everything looking factory and the three screws will match. If you want to preserve the old bezel, be very careful taking it off, the clips snap very easily. 48386

This is about as quick and simple a way there is to secure your tailgate. Took less than 10 minutes and works great. Now I don't have to worry about someone stealing stuff out of my truck bed. With my solid fold cover on and this lock my stuff is as secure in the bed as it is in the cab. Great product at a good price. 122729

Product installed very easily and worked great for almost 3 months. Then for no apparent reason, I could just open the tail gate regardless if it was locked or unlocked. Tried 'Reinstalling' it in case it came loose, but nothing helped. I am marking this as a learning experience and am going with the 'Pop Lock' brand. 84474
