Today on this Ford F150 we are going to be installing the Power Tailgate Lock from Pop & Lock, part number pal8250. To start our installation off we are going to go ahead and lower down the tailgate, and on the back side here we got the access panels that is covering the innards of our locking mechanism. You want to go ahead and remove that first, and there are 8 tork head screws that we have to remove to get it off the tailgate. We will next go ahead and release the rod ends from the scissor links, and to do that these little green clips here actually just flip up. Take a screw driver and then next we will take and remove the two 10 mm nuts that are holding the scissor bracket to the handle, and then we will go ahead and take it out. Okay what we are going to do is go ahead and do a quick test fit of the components here and make sure everything is working before we actually install it on the vehicle.
Today we are going to review part number 8287DAT from Master Lock, the truck bed security you lock and also accompanying part number 78DPF this is their Master Lock 10 millimeter braided security cable. First thing we will go over is the components of the lock itself. You can see it has the mount that goes to the truck bed itself, the actual lock, and the U bolt part and then also it comes with an Allen key and also a set of keys. This unit we will mount to the truck bed in two different ways. First off as shown here that the hardware is used to install it to the stake pocket on the top of the bed itself. This lock can also replace one of the tie down points on the bed of the vehicle. To begin our install what we are going to have to do is actually take apart the lock and that is a good way to show you how it works. 00:41
