Video Transcript for Pace Edwards PowerGate Electric Tailgate Lock Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Pace Edwards PowerGate Electric Tailgate Lock. This system is only designed to work with vehicles with factory automatic locks. If you have a manual locking system, you'll need to purchase a switch kit, such as part number PAL9520. Even though you have a tonneau cover on your vehicle, if you don't have a locking tailgate, it doesn't offer any protection from theft. Anybody can just walk up, open your tailgate, and steal your precious cargo. But with this automatic locking tailgate latch, you can now protect your cargo with the click of a button, just like you we're locking your vehicle.

While it works great with the tonneau cover we've got here, it'll also work fantastically with a camper shell. If you've got more stuff you need to haul, you can keep everything in your camp shell nice and secure with this lock.This locking mechanism installs right onto your factory latch. It'll keep it from opening, so nobody can get inside. It also works with your existing key fob or the interior lock and unlock buttons. Here, you get to the automatic lock functioning.

There is unlocked, and your rods compress together to release your tailgate. But here, it goes up and it prevents your rods from moving so the tailgate can't be opened. This system works best with a tonneau cover that unlatches from the inside. If your tonneau cover unlatches and opens from the outside, then regardless if your tailgate's locked, somebody could roll your cover back and get in. But with one that opens from the inside, while your tailgate's shut and locked, nobody can open your tonneau cover or tailgate, and your cargo's secure in your trucked.If your truck is primarily a work truck and you have a lot of expensive equipment and tools in the back, this way, you can keep it locked and secure while on the job site.

You can go to lunch, walk away from your truck, and you don't have to worry. This is also great for the added campers. You go to your site and you've got some equipment in the back that you don't necessarily want to unload at your campsite, you can keep it locked and secure in your truck while you're out on the lake.When comparing this to similar locks on our site, such as Pop & Lock's automatic lock, they do operate fairly similar. Some of the differences are this lock has a sliding bar that will prevent your handle from being pulled upward, whereas the Pace Edwards has two brackets that go up that prevent your rods from moving. Keeping the rods from moving inwards is actually more secure because the rods are what releases your tailgate to allow it to open.

If you just have a bar going across, you're just stopping the handle from going down, which does keep it from moving the rods inward. However, somebody could stick a screwdriver in there and still finagle the locks inward to release your tailgate.Looking at the design of the Pop & Lock in comparison, there's more sliding mechanisms that could potentially bind up and cause an issue. This just rotates a small beam into place, keeping your latches from opening. Less moving parts correlates to less possible failures.Another benefit of the Pace Edwards system over the Pop & Lock is its dual relay system. The Pop & Lock hooks directly into your driver's door lock actuator, drawing power and signal from your driver's side door lock actuator. This can cause excessive current draw in that circuit, which may potentially open the fuse on your vehicle, preventing all of your door locks from functioning, whereas the Pace Edwards system just senses a signal at your door lock actuator and has a separate power and ground and relays to control the lock on its own fuse circuit. This'll protect your vehicle's circuit from overload from the additional components. Since it has its own relay and fuse circuit, if a short we're to occur in your tailgate's lock circuit, it would open the fuse for your tailgate lock rather than the fuse for all of your door locks.Both the Pop & Lock and the Pace Edwards automatic locks are going to work with 1999 to 2007 GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado trucks, whereas the Pace Edwards will work with any size trucked. Now, both the Pace Edwards and the Pop & Lock's going to come with everything you need to get it installed. However, the Pace Edwards auto lock is going to be a little more difficult because of the relays, but it's definitely an added benefit to protect your vehicle's circuits. So it may take a little longer, but I would go for that. There's no drilling or welding required. Let's show you how to get it installed now. That completes our look at the Pace Edwards PowerGate Electric Tailgate Lock.

Pace Edwards PowerGate Electric Tailgate Lock - 311-LK270

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (5 Customer Reviews)

- 311-LK270

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!!

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.
