Video Transcript for Pop and Lock Manual Tailgate Lock Installation - 2012 Honda Ridgeline

Today on our 2012 Honda RidgeLine, we're going to review and install the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock, part number PAL6100. Here's what our Pop & Lock looks like once it's installed. Now let's go ahead and review the features. As we can see, the lock cylinder fits nicely inside the handle bezel and integrates well with the manufacturer's tailgate and handle. The lock assembly is going to come with two keys and it has both the unlock and lock so it'll provide security and not allow our tailgate to come down when it's locked up. Therefore, we can safely store equipment in the back of our RidgeLine. Now, on the inside we have our cover removed so we can see the Pop & Lock mechanism.

Here we have the back of our key cylinder with a lock bar. The main functioning rod here will rotate, not allowing the handle to operate, keeping our tailgate locked. Here's our unlocked and here's the locked. Now you know what the Pop & Lock system is going to look like installed. Let's go ahead and show you how to install it. Now, to begin our install, we'll first go ahead and open up our tailgate.

First remove the four screws that go across the top of the tailgate and the four torx bit fasteners here across the body of the tailgate. To remove our torx bit fasteners, we're going to use the T40 torx bit. Now the cover here across the top of the tailgate needs to slide off towards the passenger side. Using a soft mallet, we're going to start tapping it that way. Here, underneath the cover are plastic fasteners that we're holding it.

They just clip and lock into place. Now that we've got the cover removed, we'll go ahead and turn these and remove them from the sheet metal. We can then reinstall them into the cover. Note we have fasteners for both the top and bottom row. Now, they can be a little sticky so we can use a flat blade screwdriver or a trim panel tool to help pop them out.

Now with that piece removed and reassembled, we're going to go ahead and set it aside for re-installation later. Next, well remove three more of the torx bit fasteners so that we can free up the top cover. Once we have it off, we'll set it aside. Now that we've exposed the handle mechanism here inside the tailgate, we need to free up the handle rod itself. By pulling on the handle, we can find the handle rod and the green clip that secures it. The clip will simply snap off the rod. Rotate it out of the way and then remove the rod out of the clip and swing it out of the way. Next, we'll remove the two screws that hold the handle assembly. We'll hold the handle assembly from underneath while I remove them. This way we don't have to worry about it falling out. Now, with the screws out of the way, we'll bring in the Pop & Lock bracket lock, set it into position, and reinstall the manufacturer's screws. Now the manufacturer's screw or bolt here has a large flat washer. The flat washer won't clear the bracket so we're going to need to file down an edge of the flat washer. You can either use a hand file or we're going to go ahead and take it to our grinder. Now with the flat washer ground down, we'll go ahead and thread it back into the handle. Now with our bracket mounted and secured, we're going to use it as a template to drill out the three holes. We'll have the two smaller outside ones as part of the instructions on our size and then the larger on in the middle. Next, we're going to install the lock mechanism. The lock mechanism will get fed from the outside in where the two smaller holes line up here and the larger one there. Once we have it lined up we'll install the two machine screws provided with the install kit to secure the lock mechanism in place. Next, we're going to raise the tailgate up but do not close it all the way as the handle's been released so we won't be able to open it back up. We got it up. We'll take the lock mechanism, line it up with the holes, and set it into place. We'll hold it in position as we swing the tailgate back down and install the hardware. Next, before we go any further, we're going to go ahead and test the lock mechanism. We'll swing our tailgate back up, again, not closing it all the way but just so we can access the lock. Put our key in and make sure it turns freely. Now we can go ahead and put the handle assembly rod back on. This goes back into our clip and snaps it into place holding it in position. Next, we need to install the Pop & Lock lock mechanism. To do that, we're going to remove the two manufacturer's screws. We'll bring in the lock mechanism, we'll line up the two bolts we just removed, and set it into position. Note that we will be going underneath the rod and cable. We'll line it up and reinstall the two screws. Next we'll install the lock bar. The lock bar will get connected to the locking bracket and the key cylinder. We'll put it onto the bracket first, then line it up with the cylinder. Keep in mind when installing it to make sure that the fitting that goes around the cylinder is on the bottom and the bar sits on top. Then, to secure it, we're going to use a star washer and machine bolt. We'll install it and tighten it down. Now, with everything installed let's go ahead and test the new Pop & Lock lock with our Honda Ridgeline. Here's operation of our handle in the unlock position. We'll rotate the key cylinder locking our Pop & Lock which will not allow our handle to actuate and open the tailgate. Unlock, we rotate toward the driver's side and actuate the handle. Then to lock our tailgate, rotate the key cylinder towards the passenger's side and it locks out the handle so we cannot actuate it and open the tailgate. With our tailgate cover removed, we can also identify the difference when the actuator is locked and unlocked. Here, we're in the locked position. We go to actuate the handle and you can see the Pop & Lock rod blocks it from being able to open. In the unlock position, our Pop & Lock rod is rotated out of the way and we can fully actuate the handle. Now with everything installed and secured we can re-install the tailgate. Our tailgate cover will go back pretty simply just setting it back in place and re-installing the fasteners. Our top cap will snap back into position. We'll line up the white fasteners from the holes that we removed them from and just pop it back into place. Then, reinstall the four screws. Now with everything installed, we're ready to hit the road. That'll do it for our review and install of the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock, part number PAL 6100, on our 2012 Honda Ridgeline. .

I installed the tailgate lock about a month ago and have waited a while to see that everything worked OK and it works great on my Honda Ridgeline. It took about 2 hours to install and it fit well except for two mounting screws that had washers on them that needed to be smaller so I removed them and replace them with correct size. The photos that came with the unit were so small and hard to see I couldn't really use them but the written instructions got me thru in good shape. After I was finished I went back to web site and there was a really good presentation on installation that one could easily follow. Thanks 332892

The lock worked well on my '13 Ridgeline and secures the dual-opening hinged gate in both planes, locking both handles at once. Note that for a Ridgeline you will need a T50 star driver to remove the tailgate liner. Installation was easier than expected after I got oriented to the supplied instruction pictures which are adequate but change orientation for some reason as you go. This lock did not require me to move my backup camera at all. One thing to note is that the factory bolts that are re-used to install the lock mechanism have non-removeable washers crimped on them which will not fit over the lock mechanism as described, but I simply swapped these out for the two adjacent non-crimped factory bolts without any problems (you will see these while working, they are obvious). The key-hole mechanism is sufficient but stiff, but I will get out the WD40 which I am sure will remedy. I recommend this product and would purchase from this seller again. 93599


Comments
The lock continues to work well without any issues a year later. The fact that I had not thought about it until I was asked to follow-up speaks for itself, no thoughts or problems encountered. Very happy with both the product and the vendor who clearly puts customer satsfaction at the top of the list. Highly recommend doing business with this company as they obviously continue seeking feedback far beyond any others Ive used for various hardware accessories.

I was questioning this product since Honda ridgeline tailgate door open in two ways, I call the manufacture and they confirm how it works. This item is on two to three weeks back order every where so I soon as I find it on this site I did not waste any time to order it, I receive it on time and it took me about 35 minutes to install it. For Ridge line owner I think this is a good item and do n't hesitate to buy it, It is easy to install, I will say DIY. SLY I ordered this it open 29487

I just installed the pop n lock on my 06 Ridgeline. Wish I did it sooner. Looks great and very functional. This solved a problem that Honda neglected to address in its Gen 1 model, which was locking the tailgate. The video made the install very simple and straightforward. I did not have the issue that many others had with reinstalling the top tailgate cover. I would recommend this product without hesitation. 522718

I don't know why Honda didn't include a lock for the 2012 Ridgeline tailgate, especially since this solution from etrailer is so simple and cost effective. I have a hard aftermarket bed cover from Bak-Flip so this lock makes the whole bed pretty secure for carrying equipment, luggage, etc. Installation was made quite easy by the excellent video provided by etrailer. I have the backup camera and the kit fits right around the wiring and the lock sets up in the corner of the handle opposite the camera for a nice balance look. The lock works for both handles as this tailgate opens two ways. Overall great product. 724929

I installed the Pop & Lock on my 2014 Honda Ridgeline. Purchasing the item was easy on line and it actually arrived two days before the initial notified arrival date. The instructions were very easy to follow and reviewing the available video of an install also helped. The Pop & Lock looks to be made of a good quality material and I anticipate no difficulties in its sue. 698807

I installed the lock according to directions supplied and it works as intended! The directions supplied worked fine, the only thing I found that could be improved would be if the photos included could be much larger it would make the process easier! 561496

Estimated delivery was on-time. installation did not affect back-up camera and took me about an hour. Thank You for your PAL6100 installation video which was a big help over the printed instructions. Having installed my BakFlip G2 bed cover last year, the Manual Tailgate Lock adds a welcomed security feature. All hardware worked 'as advertised'. 513059

Overall, the installation was fairly easy. The video provided by Etrailer was excellent. The lock works but seemed a little tight. I loosened last screw on post and is working better. Delivery was quick. Pleased with purchase. 502055

Overall it appears to be a very well thought out product. Instruction sheet packed with lock system is close to being worthless. Very dark, murky graphics. Use the etrailer install video which is very good. For the price I would expect a better quality lock cylinder, at least all metal vs plastic. Instead of grinding down the handle mounting washers I simply dug around in my junk box and came up with stainless steel bolts, lock and flat washers that were a perfect fit. I also added a dab of white lithium grease on several points to try and make a smoother lock/unlock transition. I chose the manual version because I couldn't see the need for the tailgate to lock and unlock every time I enter and leave the truck. I will leave it unlocked unless I have something to secure. This goes quite well with my Peragon tonneau cover. I would recommend it. 501487

The factory tailgate "lock" on the Ridgeline is terrible. This is a REAL solution! It's perfect! Instructions are printed badly, but no matter- go online and look at large color photographs. The hardest part (hands down) was getting the top trim piece off of the tailgate in the first place. Everything else was a breeze! 378841

I had to contact Pop & Lock cause the unit I bought didn't work. I followed the instructions to the T and when you go to lock the tailgate, when you turn the key back so you can remove the key, it kept moving the arm to the point where it wasn't locking the tailgate anymore. So they sent me a new one and I'll be replacing it here soon. Then I'll send them the defective unit. 314888

My original cover lock failed within the first year, then I found this lock. It has worked flawlessly for over a year. It matched the paint color and did not bother the backup camera. Will be looking for the same type of lock for my wife's new '17 RidgeLine. 305902

I saw this lock set on You Tube while scrolling thru things that have been done to Honda Ridgeline trucks. The videos from several previous purchasers made the install go well as I knew what to expect and where to trouble shoot. 299491

I've owned two Honda Ridgelines and always felt that lack of a tailgate lock was a serious issue especially if you have a bed cover that locks. That really doesn't help if the bed can be accessed by simply dropping the tailgate, This lock is an excellent idea and an excellent product. The video made installation a breeze. It looks and fits perfectly. I received the lock only a couple of days after ordering which was another plus. 295417

Rear gate lock went in like it was an original part for this truck, I was very pleased with the parts and the ease of the install. The only issue was the 8 days for shipping. 261738
