Found this item via google and decide to order it. After ordering I also looked [online] and seen it was some what cheaper. But went ahead and kept this order just to keep it for more of a local business. Opened the package and thought wow this is nothing but a piece of plastic. Well I installed it and while taking out the old one it too was all plastic. The only thing the clips that hold to the rods are a little more flimsy than the original. Got it installed and it wouldn’t lock unless I kinda flipped the handle while turning the key. I thought oh no this isn’t going to be good. I got out the old faithful WD-40 and sprayed the moving parts and it works like it should. So far I am pleased with the item. It is just chrome covers plastic but with normal care should last a good long time.
Looks good also on my vehicle. ( picture below).
I would recommend this item, pay a little more here but it keeps them in business. Deleobert was very fast and packaged well.



Working good after a year. have had no problem with the product would recommend it for anyone.

2011 GMC Canyon

The installation went very easy. The instructions were clear and almost perfect. The only thing I found wrong was it said to use a 6mm driver to unscrew to bolts mounting the handle. It is actually a 10mm. The final look is great.



I think perhaps the bolts threaded size is 6mm not the required tool size

2010 GMC Canyon

My truck did not have a locking tailgate handle and I put on a tri fold cover and wanted to be able to keep things safe. So I shopped around and this is really the only one I can find. I was able to install it in under 15 min. It does what it's suppose to but it just seems very cheap. Not as durable as the stock one. But it works and looks good!

2012 Chevrolet Colorado

The locking tailgate handle installed very easy with very detailed directions. Works great and feels about the same quality as factory. Looks great and matches perfect from original.


When I first received and installed this lock I was very impressed with the quality, fit and finish! Also with the ease of installation! I notice now that, for some reason, you can't remove the key when it's in the unlocked position, which means it must be locked at all times the key is out of the lock. This makes it a bit inconvenient when you are loading and unloading several items in a short time frame and you really don't need to have it locked. The good point is thought, there's no chance of forgetting to lock it!

Everything is fine! Whatever the problem was with removing the key has resolved itself and everything is good now! Looks and works well!


Item arrived on time and the quality met my expectations. It took about 30 minutes to install with no issues. My only disappointment was finding out after installation that the key cannot be removed unless in the locked position. Why? This poses a great inconvenience when opening and closing frequently where security is not an issue.

I will reach out to the manufacturer to see if there is a reason it was designed like this.

2012 GMC Canyon

I have a tonno cover. opened gate and removed tailgate protection and then the access panel. removed standard gate handle,installed new handle. all good so far,operation with panel off seemed ok. still had not closed the gate. went to take off tonno roll up and my son closes gate!!!! this prevents taking off tonno roll up!! and guess what the new chrome plated expensive handle will not pull the rods out far enough to release the latches. worse the plastic handle is flexing and breaks off!! had to destroy the rest of the latch assembly to get at the rods and manually pull them to open the gate.
overall the whole plastic and metal assembly is to flimsy and flexible to work except as a chrome dress up kit !!!! cant recommend this to anyone!!Resp gq phillips


this tail gate lock is made of plastic Frame. this is the same one I ordered from you guys years ago, its was Avery good gate lock until frame broke where bolts attaches to the lock frame. this new one has a spacer on the bolt mount to the end gate bolt hole may be this is going to be better, won't be lifting directly on the bolt that hold the gate lock in place. I STILL GIVE THIS A PRETTY GOOD RATEING.

2012 Chevrolet Colorado

The new tailgate lock assembly works great but then so did the old one for a couple of years. After about two years the old assembly would not retract the tailgate latches sufficiently and thus it was very difficult to open the tailgate. I hope the new assembly lasts much longer.

2011 GMC Canyon

Very nice replacement for the non locking handle,6 screws to change out assembly.Fit is perfect for 2011 Canyon/Colorado,chrome is nice finish.I had a factory unit handle break on my 07 Canyon ,wish these were made then,much better quality/price than what I bought at local parts store


Latch broke after 1 month! Replaced with OEM


This product looks great on my new truck. Plus the locking handle secures everything in the bed of my truck....Great product...Thanks

2011 Chevrolet Colorado

This is a complete replacement tailgate handle, even comes with the gasket. Just take the factory handle out and install this one. Takes all of 5 minutes to install.

  • Tailgate Locks for a 2004 GMC Canyon
    We do have some tailgate lock options for your 2004 GMC Canyon. But Replacement BOLT Lock Cylinder # BL709231 will not work with the 2004 GMC Canyon. It isn't necessarily because of the lock or truck but because it does not accept the 2004 Canyon key. We do have Pop & Lock tailgate locks # PAL1700 and # PAL1700C which are manual locks. Or you could use lock # PAL8160 which will work with power door locks to lock and unlock the tailgate.

  • Can Pop & Lock Tailgate Handle, Part # PAL1700C, Be Keyed to Match Truck Key?
    The Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Handle and Lock for the 2012 Chevrolet Colorado, part # PAL1700C, cannot accept a replacement lock cylinder of the type and size used for typical automotive keys. I spoke to my contact at Pop & Lock to confirm that this part is not compatible with standard auto lock components. You might instead want to consider a power lock, since this will avoid the need to keep track of the additional keys. Pop & Lock offers a power custom tailgate lock that connects into...
