Video Transcript for Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Handle with Lock Installation - 2011 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2011 Toyota Tacoma, we'll be installing the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Handle with Lock and Key Alike Lock Cylinder, part number PAl5400. The Pop & Lock tailgate handle is great, because it looks just like the factory tailgate handle, with the exception of having the lock added. We still retain the use of our factory backup camera in its original position, and we don't have to worry about having a second key. We can use our factory key, that starts our truck and opens our doors, without a problem, to gain access to our tailgate. This lock and tailgate handle works perfectly in conjunction with a tonneau cover, such as we have here today. This will help protect any of our valuables that we have in our truck bed. All right, here's what our tailgate handle comes with.

Basically just the tailgate handle. See, we got our handle here to open our tailgate, we have a cover here, and this cover is for if your Tacoma is not equipped with a rear view camera. If you have a rear view camera, all you do is pop this cover out, and the camera goes in this position here. We have our lock cylinder here. Note the sticker over it that says, "Do not remove sticker until you're ready to insert the key you intend to use with it." Our case today, we're going to be using the ignition key, which happens unlock all of our doors.

The vehicle only has one key for it, so the one key will open the doors, the tailgate, and start the truck. Now, the cool thing about this lock cylinder being the code Alike key is that you can insert whichever key for any vehicle that you have into it to unlock it; so you don't have to worry about somebody having the same duplicate key as you for a normal tailgate handle and be able to get into your tailgate: Only that your key to your vehicle will open it. It's a really simple installation, there's only 4 screws that hold it in place. Now, before we start anything, we'll take our cover off here. Take the key that we want to use, in this case, it's our ignition key, which happens to unlock our doors, we'll insert it, and we'll turn it. As you can see, once we turn it all the way, it now moves the lock mechanism, and it's been coded for our truck. Here's our factory tailgate handle that's on the truck.

As you can see, it looks very similar, we have our backup camera right here. I'll hold the 2 up side-by-side. You can see how the handle is just slightly smaller: It's because we have the lock mechanism for it now. We'll just go ahead and we'll pop this cover out here so we can install our backup camera. There's 2 tabs here on the cover.

Let's push in on them, like so, and the cover falls out. That will open our tailgate to be in our installation. Now, there's several T30 Torx bolts routing 00:03:01 down the side of our tailgate, and along the upper section of it. We need to go ahead and remove all of these. Now we can grab our bed liner cover here and slide it forward, set it aside. Now you see both of our tailgate latch rods right here. We need to remove the rods from our handle assembly. To do that, just push forward, and then lift up. Now we'll unbolt our backup camera. There's just 2 10mm bolts there. We'll lift it out, we'll set it to the side, now we can unbolt the factory tailgate handle. There's 2 more 10mm bolts. Okay, then grab the handle, tilt it down and out. Take our new handle, tilt it in, make 00:04:34 sure our rods are not interfering with us; put it in the proper position, and reinstall the 10mm bolts. Okay, it looks like it's sitting there nice and straight, sitting in just like the factory one was, so we can continue on with our installation. We'll take our latch rods, insert them in the proper location, swing the cover back over to clip it in place. Okay, and we'll put our backup camera back in position, secure the 2 bolts to hold that in. Now, when reinstalling the backup camera bolts, it's best to snug them up by hand, just so you don't stress the plastic. You don't have to worry about that on the handle itself, just the backup camera. Now we're going to test our operation of our tailgate handle before we put the cover back on. As you see, when I'm pulling down the handle, our latch rods are not moving. That means the tailgate's in the locked position. If I reinsert our key and turn it, see how this moves and pulls this down It's now in the unlocked position, so when I pull the handle, you can see our lock rods move and we can open our tailgate. Now that we know it's functioning properly, we can reinstall the cover. Slide it in position, lift up a little bit. You see the difference between 2 of the screws, that one has a bigger washer on it than the other The big washer ones go towards this top edge here, so make sure you put them back in the proper position. Now that we have all of our screws reinstalled, we can close our tailgate, we'll lock our tailgate. With it locked, we can't open our tailgate anymore. That completes our installation of the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Handle with Lock and Key Alike Lock Cylinder, part number PAL5400, on our 2011 Toyota Tacoma.

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.

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

I just installed this on my Tacoma and it works just as advertised. The key matching feature is so simple to set up. The handle took literally 10 minutes to install. All you need is a 10mm socket and a T30 torx bit. 655777

The product is not as durable as the original. You have to remind yourself to be gentle when you’re pulling up on the handle. For some reason their camera option is backwards for the 2012 Tacoma Prerunner. We had to flip our camera. Unfortunately, the components have come apart on the inside which left our tailgate completely locked up. We’ve had to remove our tailgate twice and fix the issue. We vowed that if it happens one more time, we’ll be putting the old one back on until we find something better. 632062

I ordered the PAL5400. Shipping was fast and it arrived as advertised. I viewed the installation videos on the website and within 30 minutes of receiving the Pop A Lock, I had a locking tailgate on my truck. In addition, my ignition key locks the tailgate. I had to move the lock mechanism around a few times in order to make it fit. A little tricky but keep at it and it fits perfectly. My truck is not Ft. Knox but this lock will deter the opportunist criminal and it is exactly the lock I was looking for. 621884

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

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

The lock set has been great haven’t had any issues with it. I have pass the product to a couple friends and they both purchased one. The quality is great.

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

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
