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.

Ordered for 2014 F250 on Sunday, Received on Thursday, Installed on Saturday. Took me and my son about 1.5 hours to install. Instructions were spot on for color of wires. The video of the f-150 installation was very helpful. Very happy now that I have a Tailgate that can be locked and unlocked with the remote. 139866

I was looking for trailer parts and came across this site. Looked at what they carry and came across this tailgate lock. The main reason my wife bought this was to be a Xmas present, becuz i kept leaving the key in the tailgate lock after opening and closing the gate. Then go do something and then find I don't have my keys. I needed this bad enough she gave it to me early. Not bad to install after watching the video, fairly easy. Much easier to push a button in your pocket to unlock and lock than to fumble with keys. During the day, my job requires I carry tools and parts to jobs. Constantly opening and closing tailgate. This will make for an easy day. Just bought a 2013 Ford F150 FX4 a year ago. This is the only option it didn't have. 456884

Kit was exactly as described and installed easily. I had some trouble finding the correct wires under the door so I went to the connector for the driver side rear door and connected there. It was much easier than trying to find the wire in the huge bundle. Installation into the tailgate was super easy and routing the wires was not trouble. I love knowing that the tailgate is locked whenever the truck is locked. 170448

1. Watch the video before installing! 2. My 2012 F150 Supercrew has the reverse camera and assist step in the tailgate. Installation of the lock assembly was simple and easy. I did use, and recommend a set of mechanical fingers to make wire harness routing through the tailgate much easier. I ran the the finger through the tailgate and out of the hole in the bottom of the gate. Also, if you have the camera harness like I did, routing is much easier if you remove the tailgate from the right hinge only, and move it away from the bed slightly to allow better access to the hole in the bed. I also routed the wire from underneath the bed and then through the tailgate due to the camera wire harness. I installed spiral wrap around the harness in the area of the tailgate to provide additional chaffing protection. I purchased the split sleeve to protect the wire harness routed from this area to the front of the cab. 3. Instead of drilling a hole in the rocker panel box, I found a hole with a rubber plug installed, at the rear of the passenger door rocker panel. I used a 1/4" gasket punch to cut out the center of the plug, routed the wire through the hole, and sealed it with black silicone. The wire went right into the wire tunnel. I routed the wire harness up to the driver door rocker area, and connected into the truck harness there. I did wire my gate lock to unlock with the passenger door, so the wire colors were Grey with a tan stripe for locking, and Purple with a grey stripe for unlock. I secured the harness in the rocker tunnel with nylon cable ties. I have several friends who own F150's with locking tailgates, and they all indicated they would be looking into getting one for their trucks! 178079

good product and works well. Just be aware that the factory nuts may not work with the pop and lock bracket. Mine have a captive washer behind the nut and there is neither enough room side to side nor up and down to use the factory nut. I tried to simply trim the edge of the captive washer to make room, which worked out OK, but then I realized that the threads inside the factory nut do not start until about 2mm into the nut/washer assembly. Luckily I had a spare 6mm nut lying around and was able to complete without another trip to the hardware store. Be sure you have a 6mm nut or you may be stymied. 140497

Still working great! I put this on as I did not have the key to the tailgate lock cylinder and was worried that some joker would swipe my tailgate. It has been about a year and it is still working great, no worries about losing the tailgate.

Great product so far. Installed a year ago on a 2013 F150. Locate your wires that you are going to connect to prior to routing your lock wiring under the bed. I made that mistake and routed to the drivers side and then ended up wanting to connect to the passenger lock/unlock wire which does not exist on the drivers side on my truck. It was only on the passenger side. So I had already routed my wiring to the drivers side thus I went ahead and connected to the Drivers door lock/unlock wire. I also put some closed cell foam around the locking mechanism to help with vibration noise that occurs when you slam the tailgate closed. Put on some plastic spiral wire wrap in specific areas that may have additional wear due to vibration or gate closure movement. I hope this helps! 554434

Product works well, and is actually simple to install, ONCE you give up on the instructions provided. One of the color code suggested was correct and the other was not light blue and green it was blue and green. Steps should include Recommending finding the right wires using a 12vdc Circuit Tester before going to far in the install. Design of mounting bracket looks and is different then the instructions and most videos including the one online from ETrailer and Pop & Lock. Additionally the design to install is way to close to be able to easily tighten up the provided nut. 539648

Pop & Lock works very well. A bit of a hassle to run the wires securely down to the passenger front door but worth it. With the tonneau cover in place anything in the truck bed is reasonably secured. It also help prevents tailgate theft (for the camera), an expensive item to replace. Note: some of the color wires in the bundle are of similar shades and hues. Try to pick out the wires in direct sunlight to get the right ones (I marked them with tape and later connected them in the garage). Get a second opinion in case you have a color perception problem, even a minor one. 429058

Bob, thanks for the info! We recommend using a circuit tester like 3808 to match pins by function. Because wire colors can vary, they are not as reliable for determining functions.

I bought this product because I installed a Snug Top shell on my 2014 F-250 and had a power lock installed on the shell's flip up rear door. They quoted me around $350 to install a power lock on my tailgate, claiming they would have to "fabricate" some parts. I did a search and found this on eTrailer, and after watching the video I installed it myself. Lucky for me, the correct wires were already located since they were the same as for the shell. That would have been the more difficult part of the install for me. The power lock has worked flawlessly for me for the past year and the install was relatively simple (watch the video). Everything locks on my truck with one push on my remote. The only thing I can think of that is a slight issue is that the bracket vibrates slightly when I close the tailgate. It makes a sound like there is something loose in the tailgate, which I guess there is, but it's attached securely. Dealing with eTrailer was fast and easy and delivery was very quick. Very satisfied! 375686
