Video Transcript for Pop and Lock Tailgate Lock Installation - 2011 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to be installing the Pop & Lock Tailgate Lock part number PAL1300. Before we begin, we'll actually show you the components of this item. We have the lock mechanism itself and a set of keys. We have a 6 mm hex bolt and flat washer, 6/30 seconds screw and a horseshoe shaped mounting insert. And with that, we'll go ahead and begin installing it on the vehicle. We'll begin by opening the tailgate.

We're going to remove this 8-mm bolt and we're going to loosen these two 8-mm bolts. Now, you want to get these pretty loose. It will help with the fitting of the lock mechanism. With that loose, we'll go ahead and shut the tailgate and we'll actually be able to remove this bezel. It is held in by three clips.

With the bezel removed, we're going to go ahead and flip it over and remove this clip, this bolt clip, and set it off to the side. We'll then take the horseshoe shaped insert and slide it down into the bezel itself underneath where the previous clip was. With that done, we'll go ahead and flip it back over, taking our lock mechanism and insert it into the bezel here, making sure that it lines up. We'll then take our small 6/30 seconds bolt, insert it into the small hole here, and go ahead and tighten that down. And with the small bolt tight, we're ready to go ahead and install it on the vehicle.

We'll need to bring the 6 mm bolt and flat washer with us back over to the truck in order to install it. With our handle loose, we can go ahead and re-install our bezel. I recommend holding up the handle a little bit at the top part of the bezel head and then just ease it down back into place and the secure it using the three clips, and then we can open our tailgate back up and we can go ahead and tighten down our two bolts here. And with our two bolts tight here, we'll now use the 6-mm hex bolt and flat washer to insert into the third hole which will grab a hold of the lock mechanism and we can go ahead and tighten that down. With the three bolts tight, our installation is complete.

And that completes our Pop & Lock Tailgate, part number PAL1300.

Thanks for a great product. I appreciated the order process, it was very easy and fast. Delivery was timely. I had, already, viewed the installation video prior to receiving the lock. As promised, I was able to install the lock within 8 to 10 minutes. Very nice look and very effective in locking my tailgate. My truck with the camper shell is nicely secured, now.

The video was quite helpful. Took 20 minutes to install including putting my tools away. Works great. I had the old style Pop N Lock on my 1998 GMC Sierra So I expected the same quality which is what I got. This was my 1st E-Trailer order and the service was top notch also.

Like the old model I had on my 1998 GMC Sierra. This one on my 2013 Silverado is flawless. It is starting all ready to show signs of weathering on the plating of the lock cylinder.

The installation instruction sheet could have been a little clearer on a couple of the drawings they contained, but on a positive, (and much more important), note, the product arrived within 4 days of ordering, was quite easy to install, & works like a dream! Thanks for a great internet shopping experience that went very well from start to finish. As for pictures, .. . . .'sorry but I don't have any digital shots just yet. Trust me though, the finished installation looks GREAT!!

2007 Chevrolet Silverado New Body

Easy to install. Some difficulty lining up to latching mechanism. Hard to lock and unlock but hopefully after more use will become easier. Well worth the money.

Mine was also hard to unlocklock. After one winter of salt and snow it became almost impossible to turn because the flap that covers the key slot would stick back. The key slot filled with road grime. After cleaning the lock out, the key was still hard to turn. By the end of the second winter the lock wouldnt turn at all and the paint had peeled from its surface.Trying a different option this time.
