Video Transcript for Bully Integrated Tailgate Lock for 1999-2007 GM Pickups Review

Today we are going to review part number LH-003, the tailgate lock from Bully. This particular lock is specific for GMC Sierras and Chevy Silverados, for model years 1999 to 2007. Our replacement tailgate locking system consists of three pieces. We have our black plastic replacement bezel, the inner locking mechanism and then two keys. This system works great in combination with your trucks camper shell or tonneau cover to provide maximum security for your trucks bed. 0:30

Let us go ahead and take a look to see how easy it is to install one of these on our truck. The first thing that we need to do is go ahead and remove the original bezel that is on the vehicle. To do that, we need to release four clips. There are two here at the top and two here at the bottom. We are going to start by releasing the top clips and to do that we just want to take a flat head screwdriver and go ahead and pry in there until you hear them release. And then for the bottom clips, they are actually facing down. So we need to actually lift up on the bezel to get those to release. Next, we want to go ahead and open the tailgate. We need to remove the bottom retaining bolt. And then we can go ahead and close the tailgate again and we are going to go ahead and start installing our locking mechanism. 1:25

What we are going to do is feed it into the opening here. And what we are going to attempt to do is align this hole in the top of the mechanism with the hole from the screw that we had just removed. So what we want to do is go ahead and the key into the locking mechanism and go ahead and rotate it down. Go ahead and align the two holes. And then, with the provided screw and washer, go ahead and it from the inside of the tailgate and thread it into the locking mechanism. And with the locking mechanism installed, you can see that now in the open position the inner workings of the tailgate are allowed to work freely. 2:04

When we rotate it into the lock position, the arm of the locking mechanism comes up into position and prevents the handle from opening. And install our new bezel And again we want to make sure that we place the clips in properly. We want to go ahead and put the bottom clips in first into the holes. We will rotate it up and go ahead and set the other ones into position. You can see we have perfect alignment with the locking mechanism below. And that is all there is to it. In just a couple of minutes we have our new locking handle into position and it has a great OEM look to it. And that will conclude the review and installation of part number LH-003 from Bully.

This lock is still working flawlessly at keeping my tailgate locked and bed secured with my tonneau cover. I would definitely recommend getting this item if you want to lock your tailgate. 362576

I love this product and think anyone who has a topper or tonneau cover should really look into getting one for added security.

Funny story now but not at the time / watched video on installing but it was on a different year truck than mine and it looked very simple to do and it would have been had I looked at the enclosed instructions that noted tailgate must be closed to install but no I couldn't be that smart / end result installed lock with tailgate down and tonneau cover attached closed the tailgate only to find out that the lock worked very well I couldn't open the tailgate because by having the tailgate down while installing didn't allow the latch arms to open and a 15 minute job turned into over an hour project trying to get the tailgate open / but I would recommend the Bully Tailgate Lock and most definitely would recommend reading the instructions something I will always do before doing anything from now on 490490


Comments

I am completely satisfied with the Bully Tailgate Lock as I stated in my previous review read the instructions before installing and it will be easy to install and take about 15 mins would definitely recommend this lock

... I ordered & received the etrailer tail gate lock very promptly and with instructions, had it installed within twenty minutes with ease. The lock works excellent on my 2004 Chevy Silverado , no jamming or sticking. I would but another without hesitation and highly recommend this product to anyone that wants to keep their tailgate from being stolen, I give it a five star rating . Ken Nowlin 278224

Easy enough to install. Instructions a bit vague- "With the key in the lock- carefully align the hole..." OK, key is in lock, but should it be in "locked" or "unlocked" position? Anyway, got it installed. Opened tailgate. Yep, works fine. Turned key and removed. Opened tailgate. Yep, works both ways. Uninstalled. Re-read instructions. Watched video. Reinstalled. Tailgate opens unlocked. Good. Tailgate opens locked. Unlocked it and watched mechanism in action. Works good. Locked it and watched mechanism. As pressure build from lifting handle, there was enough give that tailgate opens right up. Made sure everything was super tight. Nope. Not gonna keep this puppy shut. Waste of time and money. Unless the keyhole discourages thief, my tailgate is just as accessible with as with out. Time to find a different product. 520186

This lock was entirely UN-satisfactory! After several attempts to install in my 2004 GMC 2500 HD, I finally managed to get it on. The supplied screws were too short, and only grabbed one or two threads on the lock. I viewed the install video (twice), read the supplied instructions (twice), and, by the hardest, got the lock installed. After replacing the supplied bezel and shutting the tailgate with it UN-locked, I pulled on the handle to open the gate, and IT broke! I'm now out the price of the lock, plus the cost of a new gate latch plus labor. Wish I had never ordered it!!!!!! 156767

Item arrived a day earlier than projected. Installed in less than 5 minutes. It's not Fort Knox - but it's 100% improvement over the locked camper shell by itself. Super product, well made, well designed. 100% + satisfied! Thank you 467768

Simplest of installs. Took less than 5 minutes. Fits perfectly and works great. My 2004 pickup is secure just like the new models. Great product!!! 502317

Device is easy to install, but be careful when doing it. Try not to break original plastic handle cover(you might want to use it again). When installing DON'T TIGHTEN the screw holding the lock in place, especially if you use the security screw. If you do, the lock won't work and tailgate won't close...ask me how I know. Adjust screw with tailgate closed. Lastly, get some 3m double sided adhesive and place on new replacement plastic to keep it attached. My cover didn't snap in place and fell off on the first bump I hit. Thanks to great customer service, etrailer.com got manufacturer to send me a replacement. With better fit and instructions I would have rated this item higher as locking unit and replacement cover were well made...just a little tricky to install easily. 25819

Recently bought a hard bed cover for my 06 Silverado and wanted to lock the tailgate. I purchased the Tailgate Lock through etrailer. The product arrived on time and complete. The instructions were easy and the installation was a breeze. The only thing I would change is the mounting bolt. It would be nice if it matched the existing bolts. However for the price and ease I highly recommend this product. 79725

I installed my lock last night it was very easy install everything fit perfect and only took 5 minutes to install. Thank you for a great product looks factory also like the heavy duty keys that came with it. 410379


Comments

Lock is still working fine, occasionally if you try and open tail gate with lock in the locked position and realize its locked when you try to unlock it, it seems to be jammed and wont unlock have to remove bezel and assist the locking assembly with a screw driver to get it un jammed. Otherwise works great, Also the key could be smaller.

The product is ok but i had a few issues with it, all cosmetic however. The first being that the hole left for the lock on the replacement bevel did not line up exactly so the top part is actually on top of the locking mechanism instead of being on the bevelled edge of the mechanism. Secondly, the tabs on the top of the bevel piece would barely latch onto the sheet metal of the tailgate. So little in fact that i needed to modify it a bit by taking a dremel to the tabs to open the space to get them to actually "pop" into place. Before I modified it all I had to do was apply pressure with one finger and the bevel would pop out abot a quarter inch on the top. The last issue is the sides of the bevel don't seem to conform to the tailgate. They stick out about 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch on both sides instead of being flush. The lock works great, it is the bevel replacement piece that I had the problems with. 79394

Purchased the LH-003 for my '04 Silverado, only regret is I should have bought it sooner. Product has OEM fit/function and installation was easier than "oatmeal", in fact, it literally took me seven minutes from start to finish and two minutes of that was unpacking the item. Similar to other locking devices this will not preclude a determined thief from getting to the contents behind the lock but it will "keep honest folks honest". The keys are heavy duty, I liken them to the OEM Chevy ignition key and not likely to bend/break under normal use. The locking mechanism is of solid form and function, just keep in mind it is a simple locking mechanism and only contacts one side of the tailgate latch when locked...not a big deal and it does preclude both latches from opening when the lock is engaged but the user will notice that the tailgate handle will have more "pull" on the left than on the right but this is a normal function of this type of locking device. Business with e-Trailer is absolutely the best, secure ordering, fast shipping (did I say fast?) and outstanding customer follow-up...cannot think of anything else e-Trailer could do to improve my experience. 106109

Ordered the Integrated OEM Tailgate Lock - 1999-2007 GM Full Size Pickups - LH-003 for my 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD Duramax. The ordering process was extremely smooth and the product was shipped the afternoon of the order. Even though it was on a Friday over a long holiday weekend (Labor Day) I received it in record time. Watched the installation video beforehand and couldn't believe how easy it was to install. Took less than 5 minutes. Product was as advertised and everything fit perfectly. Looks just like it came from the factory. Extremely pleased and will definitely order more products from etrailer in the future. 5 stars + for sure! 430575

The tailgate lock that I purchased from E Trailer one year ago has performed flawlessly. It was easy to install using the well written installation instructions. The lock comes with 2 keys. My local locksmith did not have the key blanks to make another key. A call to E trailer helped me find the manufacturer of the lock who then sent me the correct key blanks to get extra keys made. I was very happy with E trailer and Bully locks for their extra help to assure my satisfaction. 651594

Very easy to install, had installed for a year now and no problems. If you have a bed cover and want more security for your things install this lock. 2005 2500hd lly is my truck. 617341

Pretty decent price for something that can make your tailgate secure from someone who only takes a little mild discouraging to move on. The fit is quick and easy just not exactly confidence boosting to stop someone even halfway determined to get inside your tailgate. It would be nice if the design was revised slightly to eliminate the twist which occurs when tightening the screw. When locked there is still enough play in the handle to allow the left side latch to click as though it is opening. Overall, for day to day applications I will use the keyed lock but I will still use the strap attached to the tailgate when I really want the gate to be secure. 616864

Pros: easy to install. Looks great. Keeps my stuff secure. Cons: loose fit. Fell off and broke. New bolt head does not match factory bolt heads. 594527



- LH-003
by:

Very easy to install. Great solution to deter tailgate thieves. For additional security I ordered a left side tailgate hinge (the side without the gap for tailgate removal) and installed it on the right side. Now there is no way a thief can remove the tail gate unless they go through the trouble of removing the bolts of the hinge which are not very easy to get to. I have had a tailgate stolen in the past. NOT Fun! 588239

This lock works well and is easy to install. I had taken my truck out of town for training and had some things in the bed. I had the topper locked but one morning when I left for class I found that someone had tried to open the tailgate. It arrived ahead of schedule and was installed in less than 10 minutes. The video was very helpful. The first couple times you open the tailgate it is a little stiff but after that, it’s fine. The lock works great and I can sleep a little more soundly. 580122

Very easy to install..it gives a great peace of mind that I don't have to worry about loosing the tailgate in a parking lot ( removal taking a brief 15 seconds) I did loose the bezel running on rough surface with tailgate down and ordered new product and then drilled a couple of holes and secured with screws. Overall I am very happy with the product. 579816

Lock is easy to install. Make sure that latch mechanism is not worn, otherwise lock will not work. My latch mechanism was loose and did not work with lock. After making adjustments to the latch mechanism (tightened everything up) lock works perfectly. If latch mechanism is loose, tailgate will open in both lock and unlocked positions. 578677

First off; The lock operates very well when installed properly. It is stiff to operate initially, and I suggest application of WD-40 or machine oil on the moving parts before installation. Be aware you may have to go thru an install/remove/install, repeat cycle to ensure proper operation before you install the bezel. That said, wait to add "Lock-Tite" to the Phillips head screw until final adjust/tighten action. Finally. Throw that damn "non-removal screw" as far as you can as soon as you open the package. The lock is a nice security addition to the cab cover lock on my Chevy 2500. 552217
