2004 Toyota Tacoma

Katherine is just the sweetest person to deal with over the phone. She went above and beyond the call of duty yo make sure I received my part before my 2 month long trip out west. She came up with a solution to speedily get me the out-of-stock part without breaking the bank on shipping. Part was incredibly easy and fast to install. No hidden problems or missing parts. Thank you again.

My tailgate lock continues to function without issue and has done a good job discouraging folks with light fingers. Good value for this item. I highly recommend this product and this Company.
Charles V - 10/17/2020


The lock works really well. It was easy to install myself and is an effective deterrent to jeep my tailgate and the items in the back of my truck safer. Glad I bought it!

2003 Toyota Tacoma

I received my order and was very surprised to see just how durable the product feels and how easy it was to install. The longest part of the install was gathering my tools and unscrewing the screws that hold the access panel in place ... I like it ...

2001 Toyota Tacoma

As we know, older Tacoma don't have tailgate locks.
The Pop lock solves that problem.
It's well engineered and fits very well with the factory handle. It's made of plastic, so if some one really wants to open the tailgate this might not stop them. But for the grab and go type, it should do the trick.
Thanks etrailer and Pop lock!

2004 Toyota Tacoma

I had bought a camper shell for my 2004 Tacoma, and I needed a way to lock the tail gate. Pop & lock was an excellent and affordable product that was very easy to install and did exactly what it was supposed to


Easy t install and works great!

2013 Toyota Tacoma

I ordered the wrong item. Extremely easy to return. Called and talked to very helpful employee. the correct part will be sent as soon as it comes in. Thanks should have called first

2001 Toyota Tacoma

It was very easy to install,I did it in 15 minutes and it looks great,thank you guys.


It works but you could easily rip the whole thing out with one hand. I wouldn’t recommend for use in cities or neighborhoods where theft is an issue.


This item was super easy to install. Must have been designed by a mechanic. Fit was outstanding and the color match to my 15 year old tailgate handle was right on.

2003 Toyota Tacoma

I purchased the Pop & Lock for my trucks tailgate since I have to leave valuable equipment in it quite often. It works GREAT! A friend of mine tried to open my tailgate to put an item in the bed of my truck (I forgot to tell him it was locked), he struggled with it thinking there was something wrong with the handle, until he realized it was locked. Needless to say he will be a new customer as soon as he gets his truck. GREAT PRODUCT, at a Great price.

2004 Toyota Tacoma

Simple installation, locks easily, but would appreciate it feeling more secure. However, I suspect that has more to do with the construction of my tailgate internal mechanism than the pop lock. Nice product.

2003 Toyota Tacoma

The pop and lock tail gate lock was super easy to install and took like 10 minutes put on and I now have the peace of mind that my vehicle is secure as well as the contents.


The item I ordered was delivered on time and accurately. I recommend etrailer to my family and friends. Thank you.

Ask the Experts about this Pop and Lock Vehicle Locks

  • Is Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock for 1998 Toyota Tacoma Keyed Alike
    The manual Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PAL5100 is only available with unique keys and from what I'm seeing there aren't any options that come with keyed-alike keys. Some of the keys you get may match but there isn't a guarantee on that.

  • Recommended Tailgate Lock for 2002 Toyota Tacoma
    I do have a solution for you, however the Pop & Lock Custom Locking Tailgate Handle # PAL5500 referenced in your question is designed for the 2005-2015 Tacoma and is not compatible with your 2002 model. For your 2002 Toyota Tacoma, you will instead want the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PAL5100. This is confirmed to fit your truck and will install under the OEM tailgate handle. This system features a simple installation without drilling and includes 2 keys, the lock mechanism and all...

  • Availability of Locking Tailgate Handle for 2014 Toyota Tacoma

The lock can be keyed alike with your ignition key, simply by inserting your ignition key and turning the key in the cylinder. The PAL5100 you referred to isn't compatible with your Tacoma.

  • Lockable Tonneau Cover Recommendation for a 1998 Toyota Tacoma with a 6 foot bed
    Check out the Access Tonneau Cover # 834532000432. This cover uses a single latch with a slide lock that will prevent the cover from being opened without the tailgate first being opened. So if you got a locking tailgate handle like the Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PAL5100 as well as the # 834532000432 you would be able to lock the tailgate and prevent access to the truck bed of your vehicle.

  • Can the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock for a 1999 Toyota Tacoma Be Re-Keyed to Ignition
    The Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock part # PAL5100 will not use the same key as the door locks or ignition but it does come with its own set to use. I am also not aware of a tailgate lock for a 1999 Toyota Tacoma that has this feature so you are best off just using the above. If you have electric door locks, you can use the Pace Edwards PowerGate Electric Tailgate Lock part # 311-LK400 and operate the tailgate lock with your door lock. The above are the only two options we have for a tailgate...

  • Can the BAKFlip FiberMax Hard Tonneau Cover Be Locked On a 1999 Toyota Tacoma
    The BAKFlip FiberMax Hard Tonneau Cover part # BAK126403 which is a fit for a 1999 Toyota Tacoma requires access inside the truck bed in order use. Therefore, if you have a lock on your tail gate you won't have to worry about theft. If you don't have a lock on your tail gate then you can add one with the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock part # PAL5100 for manual or the Pace Edwards PowerGate Electric Tailgate Lock part # 311-LK400 for electric. The majority of tonneau covers will work...
