Excellent product! I just installed it today in about 30 minutes. I am just your average DIYer and this installation was as easy as it appeared in the install video, with no surprises whatsoever. It looks like a factory installed product, works great, and gives me the piece of mind I was looking for. I installed the Pop N Lock on a 2015 Toyota Tacoma with a back up camera. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking to lock their tailgate. Thanks to the manufacturer for providing a solution to an issue for which Toyota has not.

I like the product....except this is my second one. I bought one a few years ago to secure the contents of my truck bed, (I have a cover) and to protect the tailgate from being stolen. Actually this was the only tailgate lock that I could find. The plastic handle broke and so I could open my tailgate or cover. It took a while to figure out how to open the tailgate and cover. Perhaps the quality of the plastic could be better. Otherwise it works well.

Hint, to reverse the driver side rod end for end, you also have to reverse the locking clip so that the rod is now able to slide in from the bottom and then locking the clip. Also a borrowed hint, while opening the tail gate push in on the tail gate to relieve some of the pressure on the releasing lock arm. It may extend the life of the locking mechanism. My first one lasted about ten years, so overall I’m very pleased with the lock.

Product quality appears excellent. Installation was a breeze. “How to” vid from mfr was very helpful. I sprayed WD40 on the plastic clips to make removal and reinstallation of the rods a bit easier. Don’t use tools to remove clips from rod, they may break and snap off. Use fingers and combo of force and finesse!

It has held up well and works great. I still recommend it!

Product works fine and looks like it came from the factory. It was easy to install with the video directions. Definitely a good product experience.

I've had this tailgate lock for nearly a year. The tailgate lock was easy to install, and appeared to be of acceptable quality manufacture. I'm treating the lock and lever assembly carefully as it appears and feels like it wouldn't take hard lifting without failing. Although nothing has failed to this point, I don't think it would take hard use.


Comments
After the 2nd year of having the device installed, the item has not held up in the SW climate. The black finish has long since turned a dull grey, even with routine application of restoration product. The renewed black only lasts several days. The locking mechanism has a nice rollover when locking the device, but when unlocking, the key simply rolls to the unlock position with no resistance. That has me concerned that it could unlock on its own. That hasnt occurred yet, however. It would be beneficial to see higher quality material used.

My tail gate lock has worked perfectly over the past year. I can now store tools and parts with with reasonable expectation of security. My only regret is not knowing that the tail gate lock was available with a backup camera.

I ordered the tailgate lock, with a knock for the backup camera which I already had, for my 2012 Tacoma in the late evening and could hardly believe when I received a call mid morning the next day saying that the lock was shipped and I would receive it before the end of tomorrow. Well, it arrived mid afternoon the next day! I did pay for next day service because I was traveling on the road and needed it before I moved on with scheduled reservations. But I have to say that etrailer.com did their part very well in getting the part out extremely fast. They also sent an email out to confirm the shipping After reading the very clear and precise instructions, rounding up a couple of tools, the installation took only about 15 minutes, max 20 minutes. The lock assembly looks and works just great. It looks like it came like that from the factory. I would not hesitate to use etrailer.com for any product in the future. Walt-D2 from Maine

Its still working great and I do use it quite often. I did add add a little more lubricant to the pivot points which made it even smoother in its operation. Walt-D2 from Maine

eTrailer Customer Service was outstanding. I had a minor problem with my original order and they stepped up and corrected it immediately. The product was exactly as advertised and was super easy to install!

Product was very easy to install by the provided written instructions, and the installation video provided on the order confirmation e-mail. The lock and latch mechanism work perfectly. My tailgate had a camera, but no lock. I was excited to find a product with a lock, that still accepted my camera. Looks like a factory installation. One suggestion: The pictures on the paper installation instructions are a little dark, making it difficult to pick out some of the reference points. Clearer pictures would help.

Pop & Lock Locking tailgate Handle works "just ok" after a year. Sometimes it does not unlock, especially in dusty conditions. The lock seems to jam and I have had to dismantle part of the tailgate to open it. The materials for this product are just ok. The handle is plastic (but it has held up for a year) the linkage internally seems to be an issue with the opening and locking mechanism. In general I would say it's a poorly made average product. It looks nice and should function well as long as you don't have to use it regularly and keep it clean.

Shipping of the tailgate handle was excellent & the install was a breeze. Very good instructions & detailed. My only complaint is that the tailgate doesn’t open immediately when I pull up on the handle. Possibly an adjustment on the rods or latch mechanisms would correct this. Nice to be able to lock it though with the cover installed

The lock was easy to install...although the directions were a bit more confusing than they needed to be. But, it took only 20 minutes to install....fit perfectly....and looks like a stock piece. For the low price, it was exactly what I needed for peace of mind. I do wish it could be keyed to my ignition key, and I do wonder why Toyota doesn't put a lock on their Tacoma tailgates from the factory, being truck tailgates (especially with a back-up camera) are a prime theft target.
