Video Transcript for Master Lock Vehicle Locks - Tailgate Lock - 8253DAT Review

Today were going to review part number 8253DAT. This is the Master Lock Tailgate Lock for pickup trucks. This Master Lock Tailgate lock is an affordable and efficient way to prevent the theft of your trucks tailgate. Its easy to install, does not effect the normal tailgate operation. The locking jaws will fully enclose one of the tailgates mounting posts on the truck. You lock the unit and walk away knowing that nobodys really going to take your tailgate off your truck.

This heavy duty lock is a stainless steal construction, which is durable and resist corrosion. Does have a nice key way cover right here on the back, which you can flip open and have access to the lock. This key way cover will shield your lock from moisture and dirt. Its a simple installation, basically what this will do is right here, this will attach around the tailgates mounting post on the truck, and once you lock it down you can use the tailgate as you normally would this will just keep anybody from pulling the tailgate off the truck. Does come with two keys, and it does include a few Velcro pads which can be used as shims to prevent the lock from rattling.

Does come with a limited life time warranty. Just show you real quick if you put the key right in there, there we go, just turn it a little bit, that will allow you to push the jaws completely out to let it go around there. Then if you just push it back in to around, to the spot you need it, pull the key out, that will keep that jaw locked in place. Put your cover over the lock, and that will lock the jaw into place around the tailgate mounting post. That should do it for review on part number 8253DAT..

Seems to work well. No instructions, but it only fits one way. It would be nice to have directions just to make things clear like where to put the Velcro and what the little rubber pad is for. Pretty easy install. 593610

Your Master Lock Tailgate lock was easy to install and it allows me to open and close my tailgate as if the lock wasn't there. I tested to see if I could remove the tailgate and could not. The fit is very good. I would recommend this lock to anyone looking to secure their tailgate, but I must see it time tested before I can give it an excellent rating. 183582

I thought it was a tailgate lock. One that would not let the tailgate open at all. But hey maybe I didn't understand your video 673041

Actually, the lock isnt intended to prevent the tailgate from opening, its intended to prevent the tailgate from being removed and stolen.

My new F-150 already has an electric tailgate lock, but I have lost a tailgate before and figured I would stay one step ahead of the thief! (or try anyway) This second lock was inexpensive and much cheaper than a new tailgate! 634611

Product does as advertised. This is my third one, havent lost a gate yet. 625407



- 8253DAT

The lock was easy to install. Gives myself some piece of mind from getting my tailgate stolen. Had some stolen in the town I live in. Well worth the cost verses the replacement value of a tailgate. 620441

I received this product the other day and it literally took me longer to get it out of the package than it took to put on my truck. I have used the hose clap in the past, but I always new if they wanted to get my tailgate this would be not too difficult to remove. The lock seems to be seamless into the truck tailgate and I don't think they could get it off with basic tools. I do feel that my tailgate will always be there when I come back. 602592

The tailgate lock fit my Toyota Tundra perfectly, and was easy to put on. Etrailer.com couldn't be more efficient if they tried. Minutes after submitting my order online, I received and email stating it had shipped. That is fast. Great product, great website, and extremely fast service. I couldn't ask for more from them. 593549

Great lock as I actually decided to buy two--one for my son's '02 Ranger and the other for my own '99 Ranger. It feels solid and is very simple to attach and remove. A very good deal for the price and now I have the security knowing that a thief is not going to "lift" my tailgate! 588894

The master Lock does it's job and gives the look that the hinge is locked in. I just don't feel like the plastic arm is durable and I think it could be forced out with a good pry bar?? I don't want to test it, and loose my money spent! It just did not give me a good solid fit on my Ram 2500 where I feel comfortable leaving the tailgate unlocked or if I forget to lock it. The Customer Service was fantastic with Karen! and she was very helpful!! Keep up the great service. 575140

the tailgates with the camera and step are very expensive and are a target for theft, this lock makes it almost impossible to take without the key. 569543

Just like everyone else I have a lockable tailgate handle, I found to lock the tailgate handle was not fitting into my daily things I do. I never used the tail gate lock on the handle after I tried it once. This Master Lock is locked at all time and does not interfere with daily use of my tail gate. I am sure if someone really wanted my tail gate they could cut or pry this lock off with tools. But I can see if someone is looking for a fast payday, they would move over to the next truck that does not have a lock like this one. Another great lock by Master Lock … Bought two, one for our 2015 GMC SLE Z71 4x4 and one for our 2014 GMC SLE two wheel drive, (both crew cabs). Part # 8253DAT fits both. 503021

  • Installing Master Lock Tailgate Lock # 8253DAT on 2006 Chevy Silverado
  • I spoke with my contact at Master Lock and he said the Master Lock TailgateLock, part # 8253DAT, is a fit for your 2004 Chevrolet Silverado. This lock is made of stainless steel and includes Velcro pads which will prevent rattling. The dimensions for this lock are 3-3/4 inches x 2 inches, and the thickness is 5/8 inches. I have linked you to a product review video for this lock. I have taken measurements of this lock and have attached a photo showing its dimensions.

  • One of the Velcro pads that come with the Master Lock Tailgate Lock # 8253DAT attaches to the side of the lock itself while the other goes on the tailgate. You'll want to attach the Velcro to the lock first so you can see exactly where on the tailgate you should attach the other piece of Velcro.

  • Installing Master Lock Tailgate Lock # 8253DAT on 2006 Chevy Silverado
  • We have not had the opportunity to do a product demonstration video of the Master Lock product. The Master Lock # 8253DAT lock would install just like the Bully # LH-090 tailgate lock. If you look at the video I have linked to, you should have a good idea of how the Master Lock product installs. I personally prefer the Master Lock product, due to Master Locks long history of manufacturing locks, but in this instance, either lock would serve you equally as well.

  • Tailgate Locks for a 2008 Ford Ranger
  • I think that you are going to have the most secure tailgate in the country by using both a tailgate lock like # 8253DAT in addition to a lock at the handle, # PAL2310C. And if you have a tonneau cover on the bed you can lock things in the truck bed just by locking the handle (as long as the cover is the type that can only be opened if the tailgate is down). This set up will work great for you.

  • Will Master Lock Tailgate Lock Fit a 2014 Ram 1500
  • There isn't a specific vehicle fit list for tailgate lock # 8253DAT. Because of this you will have to go by the measurements. It is 3-11/16 inches long, 1-15/16 inches across, and 5/8 inches wide. Then in the fully locking position the opening is at most 1-1/2 inches across.

  • Bully Tailgate Lock Compared to MasterLock Tailgate Lock
  • The Master Lock TailgateLock # 8253DAT would work well on your C1500 truck. The LH-090 is discontinued at this time. Personally I like the way the # 8253DAT releases a little better and the fact that it would seem much harder to cut through if a thief was so inclined, plus it has a higher rating with our customers so I would recommend it for you. I attached review videos for both products for you to check out.

  • Tailgate Lock For 1989 Ford F-250
  • I spoke with my contact at Master Lock about your 1989 Ford F-250 and the tailgate lock, part # 8253DAT. Unfortunately, this is not a fit for your truck tailgate.

You can use the drop down box near the top of the page and choose the vehicle style of your truck tailgate.
