Video Transcript for Review of Pace Edwards Vehicle Locks - Tailgate Lock - 311-LK170

Today, we'll be taking a quick look at the Pace Edwards PowerGate Electric Tailgate Lock. This is going to upgrade the existing handle on your tailgate to make it a locking tailgate. So that way, whenever you use a hard tonneau cover, you can actually protect the items inside your truck and keep them out of the hands of any would-be thieves.It's just going to mount up to some preexisting holes behind your tailgate handle there. So you will have to get access to that handle. It's usually just a couple of screws that you need to back out and then take the panel off and then mount this up. And then we'll have some wiring to run up to our dash and then up to the firewall as well, or up to our engine compartment.

The instructions do a pretty good job of lining out exactly how to do that. Most of the connections are just plug and play. So it's really not too bad. The only actual hard splicing that we'll have to do is underneath the dash. And it does provide two quick splice connectors to make those connections.Usually quick splice connectors are a really easy way to get that electrical connection made without having to worry about any extra tools.

But I will say that in my experience with anything that we've installed here at, usually those quick splice connectors are the first point of failure for any electrical connection. So if you find that it was working great for a while, but then a month or two later, it's just not working right, it might be because those quick splice connectors have become loose or just gotten disconnected somehow.You can upgrade to just using some butt connectors, which provide a little tighter clamp around those wiring connections. We do have butt connectors here at if you want to upgrade those right off the bat. But if you get a good hold with those quick splices, they can do a pretty good job as well. Just something from my experience that I have noticed.The other components, we'll have our two relays to make sure that everything stays protected.

And then also an inline fuse with the provided five amp fuse. So we'll know that we'll have some protection there for our vehicle and our locking mechanism. But the nice thing about this is that it's going to be integrated into our truck's wiring systems. Whenever you hit the button on your key fob to unlock or lock your truck, it's also going to lock that tailgate as well. Again, keeping everything inside your tailgate protected, especially for using that tonneau cover.This is going to be a custom fit for the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500.

Pretty easy install. As I mentioned, most of that wiring is going to be plug and play, and then you're good to go. And that's going to do it for our look at the Pace Edwards PowerGate Electric Tailgate Lock..

Review from a similar PowerGate in Vehicle Locks

Now I can feel safe that my tonneau cover will be locked. There's no key whole, so nothing to Jimmy. Very protected. Also, the lock actuator feels and sounds very sturdy and capable. Very on time. Perfect fit. I feel like there could of been an install video. Would have made the process easier to grasp. P.S. follow the instructions step by step; they are very insightful into the car model and all its intricacies.

Its been a year now and Im very happy about this lock. At first I thought that the actuator was too small for the old school Chevy heavy ass lock that requires power to slam it shut. Boy was I wrong!! And Im glad that I picked this one. I lock and unlock my truck way too many times a day for this type of mechanism to withstand. But this lock is a BEAST!! LOVE IT!!

Review from a similar PowerGate in Vehicle Locks

This item worked on my truck. Had a little problem with the installing of the lock. Had to ajust the lock rod on the passenger side of the tailgate, for clearance for lock to fit, and work smoothly. Works Great now.

Ask the Experts about this Pace Edwards Vehicle Locks

  • Correct Power Tailgate Lock for a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic
    The Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PAL8350 doesn't come with a relay kit and it also doesn't fit your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic. Instead you would need the Pace Edwards PowerGate Electric Tailgate Lock # 311-LK170 which is a completely different wiring kit so you would need to completely swap out one for the other.
