Video Transcript for Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Lock Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna be taking a look at Pop and Lock's line of power tailgate locks.You wanna refer to our fit guide to find the appropriate part number that will fit your vehicle. This power locking system's gonna keep all the cargo stored in the bed of your truck, whether it's behind a Tonneau cover or camper shell, no one can access it because it's locked safe.And since this power locking system connects directly to your vehicle's factory wiring, it's gonna work with your remotes and everything else, just as if it was part of the vehicle right from the factory.In addition to protecting the cargo that may be in the bed of your truck, it's also gonna protect your tailgate from theft.This locking mechanism is gonna interrupt your factory tailgate release handle, preventing it from opening the tailgate. It has a power actuator that will move a lever that will either engage or disengage your manual lever, allowing it to either open or not open.This is a permanently mounted option that's gonna be completely hidden with inside your tailgate. And since it's wired directly into your factory lock and unlock switch, you don't need any extra keys or anything.And while they're other locking systems out there that require you to use a key, back here at the back, this power system is gonna be much easier in the dark. You don't have to worry about fumbling with that key, finding the right one on your key chain. With just quick hit of a button, you can lock and unlock your tailgate and you're on your way.So not only does it work with your remote, but when you lock it up here in your vehicle, it also locks your tailgate.

Additionally, when you unlock it here in vehicle, it unlocks your tailgate. So what's great about that is that you don't even know that it's there, but it's there doing its job all the time.And the locking mechanism is made of a corrosion resistant durable steel, so you don't have to worry about anybody forcing your lock open, because they won't be able to.And that completes our look at Pop and Lock's line of power tailgate locks.

2016 Chevrolet Colorado

Great product. Easy install. Works great. Now, when I lock/unlock the doors with the remote, the tailgate also locks/unlocks. Took about 2 hours to install. Took the longest to run the wire from the rear of the vehicle into the cab. Highly recommended. [ ] I took no photos. 692729

subject; power tailgate lock. the lock arrived one day earlier than expected. (excellent). the lock was everything that I expected it should be. (excellent). the installation went as well as could be ,I,am almost 70 years old .(excellent). the only problem I had was the instructions called for a connection to a tan wire with a yellow stripe and a grey wire. (not so on my new 2014 truck) IT WAS A BROWN WIRE WITH YELLOW STRIPE and a grey wire. all in all I do like the power lock. (excellent) would I recommend this to others. (I ALL READY HAVE) also the best price around. Thanks. 162126

2017 Chevrolet Colorado

I installed it on a 2017 Chevy Colorado extended cab one year ago and it has worked perfectly well since. It was quite easy to install, only thing was the wiring instructions are incorrect (for ext cab), maybe on the crew cab is correct. I went to a local stereo and alarm shop and they printed out the power door locks wiring diagram for me and told me where the wires were. Once i knew where, I connected the wires and it has been working with my door locks ever since. I lock and unlock the doors at least 10 time a day. 661559

Have not yet installed tailgate locking system from Pop and Lock but service and ordering from etrailer.com could not be easier or quicker. Everything arrived as ordered and right on their scheduled time. 584720

Works great and online videos made for easy installation! 564050

- PAL8140

Product was easy to install wit a little help from YouTube videos. Cable was not long enough to run through firewall but fortunately the parking brake penetration on drivers side floor made connection easy. Had to bend the supplied cam lever slightly to get lock assemble to fully unlock. Thus only 4 stars 480021

Ask the Experts about this Pop and Lock Vehicle Locks

  • Powered Tailgate Lock for a 2015 Chevy Siverado 1500
    I checked with Pop & Lock and the correct power tailgate lock for your 2015 Chevy Silverado is # PAL8140. I have included a link to a video review of this lock for you.

  • Door Locks on 2019 Chevrolet Colorado Do Not Work After Pop & Lock Install
    I spoke to my contact at Pop & Lock about the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock part # PAL8140 for your 2019 Chevrolet Colorado and they seem to think you have the device tied into the wrong circuits. The correct circuits that you will need to use will be located at the back of the 27 pin plug coming from the PCM, under the driver dash. On this 27 pin plug there is a brown/yellow wire on the 4th pin that is used for the lock signal and then a gray wire on the 1st pin that is used for...

  • Is it Normal for Pop & Lock to Only Lock Tailgate on 2017 Chevy Colorado When Pressed Twice
    That may just be the standard operation for your 2017 Chevy Colorado Z71. I currently own a 2010 Chevy Equinox and you click the fob once for the driver side door to unlock but then twice if you want the passenger doors and/or rear hatch to open up. If your passenger door(s) don't lock until you press the button twice then it would make sense that the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PAL8140 would operate in the same manner. I reached out to my contact at Pop & Lock and he said that...

  • 2015 Silverado LTZ Z71 Crew Cab Installing Cap With Brake Light And Power Tailgate Lock
    According to the installation details on the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock - Power - Black # PAL8140, the wires you are looking for are found at the door sill and are tan with a yellow stripe for one wire and grey for the other wire. It is recommended to connect the wires in whatever order and test and then switch if necessary to match locking function. The CHSML wire for your cap is like you noted not easy to find. I recommend either tapping into the cold side of your brake switch...

  • Does Pop & Lock Custom Power Tailgate Lock PAL8140 Fit 2017 Chevrolet Colorado Z71
    Pop & Lock Custom Power Tailgate Lock # PAL8140 is a confirmed fit on the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado Z71. I checked directly with Pop & Lock to make certain. This lock installs without drilling, using basic hand tools, and it is compatible with a back-up camera. If your truck does not already have power locks then you can still use this lock kit by adding Switch kit # PAL9520. For reference I also linked our main page for all truck accessory items for your Colorado.

    Yes, the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PAL8140 referenced in your question will fit and work great on your 2017 GMC Canyon that features the backup camera in the tailgate handle. There will not be any interference between the 2 components. I verified this with Pop & Lock. If you don't happen to have existing power locks then you will just need to add the Switch Kit # PAL9520. If you have a Crew Cab model you will likely also need to add the Extension Harness # PL9510 to reach the...
