2011 Ford Ranger

Easy to install on my 2011 Ford Ranger

2007 Ford Ranger

Very good product, easy to install, no problems so far with rust or wear. The only issue would be that when you grab the handle to lift the latch when locked, one side seems to be much more solid than the other. That being said, I would buy this product again if needed.

Ed S.


Working out great, as long as you maintain it with a small amount of lubricants to keep it moving properly, no problems at all.

2005 Ford Ranger

Quality product. Everything that the manufacture and your site said it would be. Easy to install.

Does the job locking the "right side of tailgate handle". Would be a better and more secure locking device if it locked "both sides" of tailgate handle. The specs do not specify that.

Works really well with my locking "UnderCover" Tonneau Cover. Would recommend product to others.

2003 Ford Ranger

I had been considering a lock for the tailgate on my '03 Ranger for some time. The price from was the best I could find on the web. The installation was pretty straightforward (I recommend looking at a video on Youtube for some great advice if you need assistance). It's working great and with my topper, I'm able to completely lock up the bed. Thanks!


I received the Pop Lock and the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Receiver. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to install both items. I was under the truck installing the hitch and thought "This is so damn easy, I'm going to have to get the Tonneau cover just to be sure!"
Thank you very much
Dean Small


Installation was simple enough but you can still open the tailgate if you pull hard enough on the non lock side of the handle. The sight of the lock itself may be enough to deter some thieves but if someone really wants it, they’ll figure it out. Better than nothing.


great security add-on / solid quality / I changed the weak plastic handler for the metal and with a little modification to the handler, lock fits perfectly and works better; locking is more solid, the plastic handler tends to twist at the opposite side of the lock (left) / very satisfied with the purchase

2011 Ford Ranger

Product shipped and arrived when it was scheduled to. It was a little tricky to put in but after a while it was in and working. I would like to see this lock somehow lock both sides of the handle instead of just having one cam that locks the right side of the tailgate release. Other then that it works and looks great.


If I was a theif and knew you were using this product. I could take whatever I wanted. The lock comes loose if you pull hard enough on the handle while it is locked. Product doesn't work. I suggest trying something else.



So Steven wasnt very impressed with the lock so should I be concerned? And being somewhat pragmatic about security devices, I know they can all be defeated by the most determined thief, I want a device which will deter the casual thief.Will it do the job?

If a thief is walking down a row of cars and trucks in a parking lot, looking for one to be unlocked, the Pop & Lock will be enough. If a thief has decided he wants the tail gate down, he will get it down. It will keep a passer-by out of the bed. If you are looking to secure the tailgate itself, check out Master Lock 8253DAT.

2010 Ford Ranger

I installed the pop lock as soon as I received it . it was installed in about 15 minutes and has worked without any problems even in cold weather


The product arrived early. It fit like advertised. The best part.....the "Super Rep" Montrel, took great care of us! Great customer service, buddy and thanks again for helping my son out.

  • Can Pop & Lock Power Tailgate Lock for 2006 Ford Ranger be Unlocked With a Key
    Good question, but the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock - Power # PAL8200 will only fit if your 2006 Ford Ranger does not have a manual lock on the tailgate, which means there isn't an option to use this lock with a key. Since you have the plastic handle on your '06 Ranger, you can use the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock for Plastic Tailgate Handle - Manual # PAL2310 (Black) to add a lock which you can unlock with a key. I have added links to a couple video reviews for you to check out as well.

  • What Can I Do to Fit the L-Bracket into the Housing of My Pop & Lock Handle on My 1998 Mazda B2500?
    I am sorry to hear about your tailgate lock! If the L-bracket is not sliding into the passenger-side of the housing, filing down the handle, even if it solves the fitment issue, can make the handle frustratingly off-balance. For this reason, I recommend replacing the lock/handle. For your 1998 Mazda B2500, I recommend either the # PAL2300 (steel handle) or # PAL2310 (plastic handle).

  • Tailgate Lock Options for a 2004 Ford Ranger
    I have tailgate locks that were designed to work with the OEM tailgate handle on your 2004 Ford Ranger, but I do not have a complete replacement locking tailgate handle. For a tailgate lock, we have three options for your truck. For a manual lock, you can use the Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Lock, # PAL2310 (Black) or # PAL2310C (Chrome). There is no drilling required to install this lock and it provides a factory appearance. We also offer the Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Lock, # PAL8200....

  • Tailgate Lock for a 1999 Ford F-150
    We do have tailgate lock options for the 1999 Ford F-150 but none from Bully that fit. I have included a link to the locks that will fit your truck. There are different locks for differently equipped trucks. If the truck has factory power locks you can use # PAL8250 if you want to be able to lock the tailgate with the power door locks. For a manual lock independent of the factory power locks or if the truck does not have power locks use # PAL2500. If your truck has a plastic tailgate...

  • Tailgate Locks for a 2008 Ford Ranger
    I think that you are going to have the most secure tailgate in the country by using both a tailgate lock like # PAL9900 in addition to a lock at the handle, # PAL2310. And if you have a tonneau cover on the bed you can lock things in the truck bed just by locking the handle (as long as the cover is the type that can only be opened if the tailgate is down). This set up will work great for you.

  • Manual and Powered Tailgate Locks for 1993 Ford F-150
    We offer several tailgate locks for your 1993 Ford F-150 that are shown on the linked page. These different locks are made for either a steel handle or a plastic handle tailgate. For example, for a steel handle you can use Pop & Lock manual lock # PAL2300 or for a plastic handle part # PAL2310. For a powered lock you can use # PAL8200 on both plastic and steel handles. Pop & Lock Tailgate Lock # PAL9900 does fit some F-150s but not your model year.

  • Tailgate Lock for 2004 Ford Ranger without Power Door Locks
    We have tailgate locks that will work great on your 2004 Ford Ranger that does not have power locks like the Pop and Lock part # PAL2310 but since you do not have power door locks you wouldn't be able to install the Pace Edwards PowerGate Electric Tailgate Lock # 311-LK350 and use it with a key fob. It requires wiring to power door lock circuits for activation and since your vehicle does not have that feature it wouldn't be possible.
