Video Transcript for Pilot Automotive Vehicle Locks - Tailgate Lock - LH-007 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at Part Number LH-007. This is the Pilot Automotive Integrated OEM Tailgate Lock for the Dodge Ram pick-ups. These tailgate locks have been designed to give your truck an OEM look while securing the tailgate to help prevent theft. These patented tailgate locks are going to be the perfect addition for pick-ups with truck caps and tonneau covers. Now this product is designed to fit a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500, 2003 to 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 to 2500 and 3500 and the 2009 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 series. It's going to come with 2 keys, keep in mind that these cannot be keyed alike to match your vehicle keys.

You're going to get 2 keys with this lock mechanism. The mechanism itself is going to be made of a zinc coated steel, very strong, very durable. It's also going to be protected from rust and corrosion. Then the handle portion and the housing is going to be made from the same durable plastic construction that vehicle manufacturers use. Really simple operation; you've got the key slot right here underneath the handle. All you have to do is slide that in, give it a quarter of a turn, and now the handle is locked, you aren't going to be able to open it.

Push it back in, rotate the other way and then you have full access to unlock the tailgate as needed. It's also a simple installation. Bully and Pilot Automotive do a really good job of making this a very quick and easy installation. All you have to do is gain access to the tailgate handle by removing the access panel on the inner well of your tailgate. Detach the original handle from the tailgate and that should just require removing 2 retention nuts inside the panel. Then all you have to do is install the new bully tailgate lock handle, insert it, line up the 2 bolt holes with the holes on the mounting bracket, and then reinstall those nuts and tighten them down.

You just need to make sure that the hook and everything is facing the right way. But again, really simple installation. Right on their packaging they say they can be installed in just a few minutes, so it's a really great addition to have when you need them to secure the things in the bed of your truck, especially if you have a bed cab, camper shell, tonneau cover. Just really great addition when you need to secure the tailgate and move it to the lock position. That's going to do it for our review of part number LH-007. This is the integrated OEM tailgate lock for Dodge Ram Pick-ups from Pilot Automotive.

Assembly was great. Completed less than 1/2 hour. The previous unit that broke i lost the nut to use on the new unit. Had to dig thru many nuts to find a suitable one. Thanks 601826

Goods arrived on time, and well packaged. The installation instructions were easy to follow, and I had the handle installed on my Dodge Ram 2500 in under 10 minutes. Looks exactly like the original (except that it now has a lock). I would recommend this product and etrailer to anyone. 219511

The first one lasted so long before I broke it (I probably pulled too hard), I decided to replace it with the same exact model. 546757

Been a year and my lock still works great! And I’ve been a lot more careful when I open my tailgate.

This is a horrible product. After having the handle professionally installed, the interior components broke and the handle fell off seven months after installation. 457298

Just installed this weekend. Great combo with topper on 2008 Ram 1500. Looks OEM and works great. It's plastic but so is the OEM so I guess it's good. The actual catch is metal. Only took about 5 minutes or less to install. You will need a Torx bit to take the access cover off the inside of the tailgate. I like it much better than a lock that pops out. Very happy with the product! Shipped fast and etrailer sent me all the acknowledgments ASAP. Sorry for the dirty picture. Thanks. 82163

Just got my locking handle in the mail. It came a day early which was cool. still looking at it in the box seems like more plastic then metal but looks like it has it where it counts. Got this so my fabric taneau cover can provide a little more security and my snowboard stays mine so how secure is fabrtic haha. this should do fine. Note if you have a bed liner it will probably take longer to install because u need to access the panel behind the handle. I did not think of this until the instructions arrived. overall thumbs up. 62459

To do the installation of the LH-007 Integrated OEM Tailgate Lock in record speed, use a cordless drill. Use the cordless drill ONLY To REMOVE THE SCREWS. DO NOT use the drill to re-install the screws. Only re-install the screws by hand with a ratchet. From beginning to end this task can be completed in less than ten minutes. ** Note to prevent the screws on the tailgate handle access cover from vibrating out over time. Use a little bit of Loctite threadlocker about half way up the screw. You'll never have to worry about any of the access cover screws from vibrating lose. This product is a great theft deterrent for all tailgates that don't have a locking tailgate latch . 459852

The lock was easy to install. Quick delivery. Easy instructions. 5 minutes to install. Finally have some peace of mind with my tonneau cover now locked. Before, you could just open my tailgate and the locked tonneau cover would just open up. Not anymore. 730607

Great product now i dont have to worry about my tools being stolen from the back of my truck. It really took me no more then 5 minutes to replace my old one with the new one. It looks like my OEM handle on my 03 Ram 1500... but better! 697799

The ordering, delivery and install was really easy. The product itself does not hold up and the plastic starts to break after 1 year. This is the third one I had to replace over the past 4 years. I would prefer to have one made out of metal but have not found one with a locking device. 653087

The installation of the new tailgate handle with lock was extremely fast and easy to do. From the time it took me to get the tools needed (screwdriver and pliers) to putting them back in my shop was under 15 minutes. It is a real peace of mind when my wife and I travel, we can now leave our luggage under the tonneau cover when we stop for the night. The product is very well made and the shipping time extremely fast. 651083

I bought this item to provide additional security for my Ram 2500. It took me about 30 minutes to install with a T25 Torx screwdriver. It was a piece of cake and works flawlessly. I only wish the lock could be opened by my truck key. I have to many keys already. 643288

Do you have a question about this Vehicle Lock?


  • The Best Tailgate Lock for a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 with Tonneau Cover
  • What you need for your 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 is a tail gate lock so that it cannot be opened when you have the tonneau cover closed and locked. We have a few different options that will fit your truck. For a black manual lock you can use # PAL3400. For chrome use # PAL3400C. And for a replacement handle (black) with a lock use # LH-007. There is also an option for a power lock, # PAL8340. If your truck does not have power door locks you can install switch kit # PAL9520.

  • Tailgate Lock and BAK G2 Tonneau Cover for a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The 2009 Ram 1500 and the 2500 and 3500 models where not all updated at the same time so 1500 tailgate is not the same so # LH-007 will not fit. For a 2009 1500 that is not a Quad Cab with an 8 foot bed you can use # PAL8350. For a model that is a Quad Cab with 8 foot bed you can use # PAL8350-PL9510. If your truck has a 5-1/2 foot bed and the RamBox feature then the BAK G2 Tonneau cover you need is # BAK26207RB. If it has the 5-1/2 foot bed without the RamBox feature then use # BAK26207. If...

  • Recommended Tailgate Lock and Backup Camera for 2006 Dodge Ram 3500
  • I do have a couple options for you, however there is not a tailgate lock available for your 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 that features a built-in backup camera. For just a tailgate lock that is confirmed to fit your truck, I recommend looking at the Pilot Integrated OEM Tailgate Lock # LH-007. This lock is custom-fit for your truck and features an OEM design that will secure your cargo and help prevent theft. 2 keys are included. If you would rather have a power lock for your tailgate, I recommend...

  • Integrated OEM Tailgate Lock LH-007 Installation Requirements and Durability
  • To install tailgate lock # LH-007, you will need a 30mm torque bit or ratchet, and a 8mm socket to remove and re-install retention nuts and screws. Though the design of the lock places the locking strength on one side of the handle, the zinc-coated steel locking mechanism and OEM style plastic make this lock very durable, and, as my contact at Pilot confirmed, tampering should not be an issue. The tailgate lock would be the best option we offer for locking your vehicle while using...

  • Recommended Power Lock System For 2009 Dodge Ram Tailgate Lock
  • For your 2009 Dodge Ram, the Integrated OEM Tailgate Lock # LH-007 is a fit for only 2500 and 3500 series quad cab trucks. For a 1500 series option, I recommend the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock - Power - Black, # PAL8350. This system works with your factory power lock system, so it locks and unlocks using remote keyless entry. If you have a 1500 series with a crew cab, you will need the extention harness # PL9510 for this kit. If you have a 2500 or 3500 series without the crew...

  • Recommended Tailgate Lock for 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Quad Cab with 8 Foot Bed
  • For your 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Quad Cab with 8 foot bed, I recommend the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PAL8340-PL9510 for a lock that integrates with your power locks. This will keep your factory look and will give you locking that is integrated with your power lock system so when you lock the doors, it will also lock your tailgate. If you are looking for a manual lock option, I recommend the Pilot Integrated OEM Tailgate Lock for Dodge Ram # LH-007. This will keep your factory look...

  • Cost Effective Tonneau Cover Option for a 2007 Dodge Ram with Short Bed
  • For a cost effective tonneau cover that will fit your short bed 2007 Dodge Ram I recommend the TruXedo TruXport Soft, Roll-Up Tonneau Cover # TX246601. This cover will help improve your gas mileage and provide some security when utilized with a locking tailgate, like part # LH-007, due to the dual latching mechanism.

  • Tailgate Lock Recommendation for a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500
  • I have a solution for you, but the Tailgate Lock part # LH-007 that you referenced will only fit the 2009 2500 and 3500 trucks. For your 1500 you would instead need the part # PAL8350. The reason for this is that the 1500 trucks had a generation change in 2009 and the 2500 and 3500 were a year behind in the change.

  • Is the Pilot Integrated OEM Tailgate Lock LH-007 the Same as the Bully LH-007

As for the handle, it looks to be the same plastic that the car manufacturers use.
