Installed the latch in less than 10 minutes. It looks great on my 2015 Tacoma. Very happy with my purchase. The best feature is that I can use my truck key and not carry around one extra key just for the lock.

I just bought a TopperEZLift Weekender for my 2005 Toyota short bed I wanted to be able to lock up the back tail gate. My son found this locking handle on line for me. It's just what I was looking for simple to install and best of all I could key it with my truck key. Great product will pass on the web site to those looking for an locking tail gate handle. I also pickup your tail gate seal that was on your web site. Thanks, Greg V.


Comments

Installed on my 2015 Tacoma TRD Off-Road. Replaces original fine using the original gasket. Has a few less pins to hold the gasket in place, but its sufficient. Handle is a bit smaller than the original due to the lock, so you have a little less leverage. This install (per instructions) requires you reverse the "wire" on the drivers side so that it does not rub against the locking mechanism, and in this specified alignment, it cannot use the middle support clamp and it rubs on the internal support structure of the tailgate. As a result, it's hard to open the tailgate. As a modification, I left the rod/wire in its original alignment, but placed a small bend in it about two inches or so away from the connection point to the lock (see pictures). This makes the latch work much better as the wire/rod can still be strapped into the middle support!

Easy to install and the best I can code the lock to the truck key that was one of the main reasons I bought it from etrailer, and the pop and lock defender secures my gate and it doesn’t interfere with the gate, the videos are very helpful and easy to follow ; I recommend to buy it from here you won’t be disappointed.

Very satisfied with the tailgate lock. Delivery was fast and the video instructions on the website were well done that even a novice was able to understand. The product was installed in under 20 minutes and is working great!

This item was a perfect match for my 2013 Tacoma tailgate. It was an easy install, as it was pretty much a simple in and out replacement. The instructions are detailed, and pointed out that the driver side bellcrank arm should be flipped, to avoid conflict with the lock cylinder. The most work involved, is removing the 16 or so screws, holding the tailgate inner liner in place. Another great feature, is the Key Alike lock cylinder, which allowed me to set the cylinder to work with the ignition key, avoiding carrying yet another key. Now, I can lock the tailgate, which should greatly reduce the chances that it can be stolen, and when I install a tonneau cover, will make the bed a secure compartment. Money well spent (since Toyota abandoned tailgate locks).

Easy install took 45 minutes outside in 32° weather. Good instructions. Good quality too, looks like OEM. Lock works great! Secures my tonneau covered 2014 Tacoma Base Reg Cab 2WD

Secure, sturdy and reliable even at 0 deg F. Locks with the same key as the truck. I dont have a tailgate camera so I cant comment on that.

Works as intended....very impressed, 15 minutes and presto, I have a locking tail gate, with my back-up camera still intact. I really should have done this earlier, but better late than never I guess. Product seems to be better than the rest I've looked at.

Easy to install! Looks exactly like the Toyota installed handle except with a lock! Make sure you use power tools makes the job easy and quick. The key to like is simple to do and is a must feature to purchase. Camera knock out and all the bolts line up perfectly. Read the instructions and look closely at the pictures if done correctly should take no longer the 30 minutes or less to install. Take your time.

I want to make special mention of the sales lady, Cathy T., for her congeniality and knowledge. She made the purchase enjoyable instead of making me feel as if I were dealing with a robot. She is an asset to your company. I received the part promptly and followed the plain-to-understand directions. The installation was completed in less than 30 minutes and the hardware seems to work fine. I really won't know until it has been used a while. I am impressed with your product and service.

Recently purchased a tri fold bed cover so I needed a lock for my tailgate. It’s freaking awesome that I can use my truck key for this lock. That is the main reason I didn’t buy a cheaper one. Easy to install, although I did have to use a flat top screwdriver to pop it in place at the end. I’m happy with it and shipping arrives way sooner that expected.

Just got it installed. Took me about 20 minutes. Easy install. The only concern is the handle itself. Its not as sturdy and thick as the OEM handle. It's pretty flimsy and feels like it'll break after a few years of tough use. It actually hurts a bit to open the gate and support it with your fingers unlike the oem handle. otherwide, easy install and easy coding.

I have bought two of these products. They both have preformed very well. The first one the plastic pin on handle that operated the unlocking mechanism snapped off(my load shifted putting excessive pressure on latches). The second one the manufacture had changed this to metal. It is a wonderful feeling knowing my belongs in my truck and my tonneau cover are safe from sticky fingers. The product shipped with everything needed with very easy and accurate instructions. I will continue to to purchase from etrailer.

Product is just as described. It is extremely easy to install (took less than 30 minutes total). Instructions are simple and easy to follow. Some have commented that it feels cheap. To me it feels the same as the OEM handle. Customer service with etrailer was awesome. I needed the product quickly and the worked with me without charging a ton f extra shipping. Very satisfied and will be back for future products!


Comments
I did have one issue with the locking device. It became stuck. I contacted etrailer and had a replacement within a week. Awesome customer service. Replacement has been fine for 10 months now. I believe the first one was damaged internally somehow and not the norm.
