Today, we're going to be taking a look at part number PAL5400. This is the Pop and Lock custom tailgate handle with lock and Kia-like 00:11 lock cylinder. This product fits the Toyota Tacomas beginning in year 2005. Now to double check to see if this is going to fit your particular year, make, and model, you can do that by using the vehicle fit guard, located right here on our website. The locking tailgate handle is going to discourage theft of your cargo in your tailgate, creates a nice secure storage for your valuables when used with a Tano 00:32 cover or with a camper shell. The lock cylinder is going to feature both codeable technology, so it can be keyed to match your OEM truck key. That's a great advantage to have, because now you don't have to carry around multiple keys for multiple locks.

You can actually code this lock with your ignition key. That's awesome. The lock can only be coded one time, so keep that in mind. You're only going to insert the key intent for everyday use. This is going to feature a tough armored steel lock mechanism, so it's designed to resist tampering. Again, it's going to be coded to one key, so nobody else is going to be able to gain access to this. It's going to use a pick-resistant design as well.

This is going to be customized for your vehicle. The actual handle in the housing is going to be made from the ABS plastic construction. It's designed to replace your OEM tailgate handle. It will work on trucks with or without a backup camera. It's got the little slot right here that can be removed to allow that backup camera to come through and to still function as intended. It's black in color, so it's going to complement any other black trim on your truck.

The key area right here is a nice raised lock, so it's going to be very easy to gain quick and easy access to. Very simple installation; you don't have to worry about drilling or welding. It's only going to require basic tools. This is going to include the tailgate handle, the lock mechanism, the necessary hardware for your installation, as well as detailed instructions that are going to take you step-by-step through the entire installation process. To code that key, your ignition key, you just stick it in here. Fully insert it into the lock.

Rotate it clockwise until it comes to a stop position. Rotate it back, pull the key out, and now your key is coded. It's a really simple process. That's going to do it for today's review for part number PAL5400. This is the Pop and Lock custom tailgate handle with a lock and Kia-like lock cylinder. .

I read the installation instructions, and managed to get this installed in less than ten minutes, in the rain. I used a Torx bit in my drill to get the screws out of the tailgate, then a 10 mm to remove the bolts from the old handle. I agree with some other reviewers who noted that this feels "cheap". It does. There are some clips missing in the replacement plastic mold that are in the original handle. The plastic of the original feels sturdier as well. That being said, the interior mechanism that unlatches the tailgate is pretty much identical. I wish they made a mold without the backup camera insert, since I don't need it for my 2006 Tacoma. The real selling point for me was the keyable Bolt lock. It took about ten seconds to permanently key this handle to my truck key. Well worth the extra money, since I can now loan the truck out with just one key instead of several. Looks stock when installed on the truck. 115878

Product is just as described. It is extremely easy to install (took less than 30 minutes total). Instructions are simple and easy to follow. Some have commented that it feels cheap. To me it feels the same as the OEM handle. Customer service with etrailer was awesome. I needed the product quickly and the worked with me without charging a ton f extra shipping. Very satisfied and will be back for future products! 123028


Comments

I did have one issue with the locking device. It became stuck. I contacted etrailer and had a replacement within a week. Awesome customer service. Replacement has been fine for 10 months now. I believe the first one was damaged internally somehow and not the norm.

The tailgate latch was super easy to install and having my tailgate locked is great. Only complaint is this handle feels nothing like the OEM handle from Toyota. Every time I open the tailgate I am afraid the handle is going to snap right off. Keep your old tailgate latch in case it does break. The manufacturer should read these reviews and improve the product to address our concerns with this product. 163743


Comments

I think the lock overall feels weak and I am afraid of breaking it every time I open the tailgate. But having a locking tailgate is very nice. Regardless of the fragile feeling construction I would recommend to someone for the protection it offers.

I just bought a TopperEZLift Weekender for my 2005 Toyota short bed I wanted to be able to lock up the back tail gate. My son found this locking handle on line for me. It's just what I was looking for simple to install and best of all I could key it with my truck key. Great product will pass on the web site to those looking for an locking tail gate handle. I also pickup your tail gate seal that was on your web site. Thanks, Greg V. 504282

Installed on my 2015 Tacoma TRD Off-Road. Replaces original fine using the original gasket. Has a few less pins to hold the gasket in place, but its sufficient. Handle is a bit smaller than the original due to the lock, so you have a little less leverage. This install (per instructions) requires you reverse the "wire" on the drivers side so that it does not rub against the locking mechanism, and in this specified alignment, it cannot use the middle support clamp and it rubs on the internal support structure of the tailgate. As a result, it's hard to open the tailgate. As a modification, I left the rod/wire in its original alignment, but placed a small bend in it about two inches or so away from the connection point to the lock (see pictures). This makes the latch work much better as the wire/rod can still be strapped into the middle support! 209353

Easy install took 45 minutes outside in 32° weather. Good instructions. Good quality too, looks like OEM. Lock works great! Secures my tonneau covered 2014 Tacoma Base Reg Cab 2WD 115213


Comments

Secure, sturdy and reliable even at 0 deg F. Locks with the same key as the truck. I dont have a tailgate camera so I cant comment on that.

Just got it installed. Took me about 20 minutes. Easy install. The only concern is the handle itself. Its not as sturdy and thick as the OEM handle. It's pretty flimsy and feels like it'll break after a few years of tough use. It actually hurts a bit to open the gate and support it with your fingers unlike the oem handle. otherwide, easy install and easy coding. 112335

I want to make special mention of the sales lady, Cathy T., for her congeniality and knowledge. She made the purchase enjoyable instead of making me feel as if I were dealing with a robot. She is an asset to your company. I received the part promptly and followed the plain-to-understand directions. The installation was completed in less than 30 minutes and the hardware seems to work fine. I really won't know until it has been used a while. I am impressed with your product and service. 588106

Overall just meh! Per other people’s reviews this product does have one bad fault. It can become frozen to where you are unable to open the handle and thus your tailgate is permanently closed. When you have a hard cover on the bed this can be even more of a problem since you’re basically unable to use your bed at all. Just be aware of this issue! 484808

One year later and its still working as designed. Handle does get light usage and doesn't feel very sturdy. I'm always paranoid that it will break internally and I'll be locked out of my tailgate like I've read happened to others. I'm hoping this never happens, but so far it's been doing its job. 477848

Comments

A little disappointed. Handle has turned ash black and can’t get it back to the black color. Nut internal that holds lock has come loose twice, so have had to take apart tailgate to fix it.

Just installed my new pop and lock on my 2013 Tacoma. Pretty simple done it during my lunch hour. I did watch a installation video which is beneficial. The tailgate bolts are supposed to be T35 torx but I used a T30 and it worked just fine. I like the locking mechanism that you can use your factory ignition key. Good product guys. 450414

Pop & Lock was easy to install and certainly is more secure if using truck cap or shell. On new Tacomas year 2016 and newer Toyota finally made a locking gate standard. I find it helpful and less straining on the opening plastic handle if I put slight pressure on at top of tailgate (push it towards cab) as it takes pressure off latch and the opens easily. Having it keyed the same as ignition is great as already have too many keys to lug around. 360082


Comments

Still working fine. Very nice having it keyed the same at vehicle. Best to take pressure off lock when unlocking by applying slight pressure forward with hand on tailgate push toward cab as turn lock and then easy to unlock.

I have bought two of these products. They both have preformed very well. The first one the plastic pin on handle that operated the unlocking mechanism snapped off(my load shifted putting excessive pressure on latches). The second one the manufacture had changed this to metal. It is a wonderful feeling knowing my belongs in my truck and my tonneau cover are safe from sticky fingers. The product shipped with everything needed with very easy and accurate instructions. I will continue to to purchase from etrailer. 348744

The unit is good NOT Great and here is why . the product is a lot of plastic and that makes it good but where it needs to be steel is in the actual interior handle unit where the exterior handle lifts the metal piece. It is PLASTIC and is going to break sure as time will tell , change that small plastic lever piece and you have a GREAT unit not just a better than average replacement, 314393

Easy to install! Looks exactly like the Toyota installed handle except with a lock! Make sure you use power tools makes the job easy and quick. The key to like is simple to do and is a must feature to purchase. Camera knock out and all the bolts line up perfectly. Read the instructions and look closely at the pictures if done correctly should take no longer the 30 minutes or less to install. Take your time. 311165

For my 2015 base Tacoma: -a great fit, very easy to install, it works well and most importantly the coding of my original Tacoma Key worked perfectly. A minor product concern is that the latch used to pull up and open the tailgate is pretty flimsy. It looks like it could break if one is too rough trying to open gate. 297092

Order arrived on time. I was surprised how easily this product installed. I had read reviews that suggested the instructions were confusing. This product installed in a matter of 15 minutes. I simply followed the written instructions step by step and when I had a question, I referred to the photos on the right side of the page. The back up camera also installed and works perfectly. This latch system works just like the OE latch. Pay attention to the part where one must flip the connection lever end for end (listed and shown in the instructions). Don't worry....just do what the instructions say to do and this will work. I wonder why Toyota doesn't just install this latch on the tailgate to begin with. 200499

A must have for Toyota Tacoma. Easy install, around 20 min. If you have a 2015 Tacoma, remove tailgate rubber bumpers if tailgate is difficult to open once tailgate panel is reinstalled. I've read in other reviews tailgate handles seem flimsy....the one I installed seems to have the exact integrity as the original. I would suggest some silicone caulking around camera housing and other spaces prone to dust entry, using blk silicone caulking makes the application unnoticeable. 200157

The product works as intended on my 2014 Tacoma however it feels a lot cheaper than the factory one it replaced, time will tell if it holds up, feels like it could break when opening. The plastic parts seem cheap and there is a lot of them, the factory handle also has a lot of plastic parts but feels substantial. Using the truck key is a plus with the bolt lock. Installation is easy follow video on YouTube. 198182
