The Pop & Lock is made of sturdy, armored steel to resist tampering. It mounts in the recess under your tailgate handle, so thieving varmints can't pop it out. The lock is raised slightly for convenient key access and to help prevent pinching. And it installs easily using basic tools - no welding or drilling is necessary. The black ABS plastic trim matches your vehicle's trim and gives you a straight-from-the-factory look.

A new tailgate can cost you hundreds - the Pop & Lock saves you the cost and aggravation of replacing a stolen tailgate.

Fit and looks good. Fairly light steel, 14 ga or so, so it could be pried out, but it is intended to deter the grab and go tailgate thieves, so it does a good job. 328365

2004 Ford F-150 Heritage Series

A little disappointed with this purchase. I didn't care for the loot, nor was I convinced it was all that secure. Having said that. Removed it and for less than half of the expensive I found it easier to convert my tailgate to a locking tailgate with a $5 junk yard handle mechanism and a $25 lock cylinder. 287564

Madison H at etrailer was quickly able to help me identify the tailgate lock I needed and provided friendly service while I placed the order The lock was shipped the same day I ordered it. I received it yesterday and installed it today. The install time was about 30 minutes including removing and installing the panel on the inside of the tailgate. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The person I installed it for was pleased with the lock and the way it works. 193026

  • 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 Lock for a 2015 Ford F-150 without a Factory Tailgate Lock
    Pop&Lock tailgate lock # PAL8250 only works if your 2015 Ford F-150 tailgate has a lock so it will not work for your truck. You would need to use # PAL2500 which is a manual lock and key style lock. I have included a link to a video review of this lock for you.

  • Does BAKFlip G2 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK26329 Lock to Truck Bed
    The BAKFlip G2 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK26329 that you referenced has a passive lock system. If your tailgate is locked there would be no way to get to the tonneau cover to open it. If the tailgate on your 2015 Ford F-150 does not have a lock on it currently you could use the part # PAL2500 to install a lock.

  • Tailgate Lock Options for 2010 Ford F250
    We do have some options for your 2010 Ford F250. If you have power door locks, use the Pop&Lock # PAL8250. If you don't have power door locks, use part # PAL2500. We also offer a universal tailgate lock by Master Lock, part # 8253DAT. This lock won't prevent the tailgate from being opened, but it will prevent it from being removed from the vehicle. This would be a good option if you don't have a camper shell or a tonneau cover. I'll link you to some product demonstration videos...

    Yes, the BAKFlip FiberMax Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK126304 that you referenced is a guaranteed fit for your 1999 Ford F-350 long bed so we can promise it will fit and work great.
