Video Transcript for Pop and Lock Vehicle Locks - Tailgate Lock - PAL8535 Review

Today we're going to review part number PAL8535. This is the Pop & Lock Custom Power Type Tailgate Lock, black in color. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the Toyota Tundra starting in 2007. On a custom fit part, what I'd always recommend is to go to our website, use our fit guide and put in your year model vehicle, and it'll show you how it'll work for your application. Now this part includes everything shown here on the table: the power lock itself, the short wiring cable, the long wiring cable, some cable ties, 2 quick splice connectors, and a set of detailed instructions.

Now this power tailgate lock will discourage theft of your cargo and even of your tailgate, creates secure storage for your valuables when used with a tonneau cover or camper shell. Again, it's designed to work with your factory power lock system, so it locks and unlocks using your remote keyless entry. There's no extra keys to weigh down your keychain. This lock is made of a corrosion-resistant stainless steel. Again, it is customized to fit your vehicle and integrate into your OEM factory tailgate handle.

It will mount inside existing factory handle mechanism, so it resists tampering. It does fit with the backup camera that is in the tailgate handle on some vehicles. It does install very easily. It'll wire into your power lock system using these quick splice connectors. There's no drilling or welding necessary. It requires only basic tools to install it.

Again, I mentioned all the wiring, quick splices, and hardware is all included. As a separate product, we offer a switch kit, which is available for trucks without existing power locks. The switch kit, we sell separately on our website. It's part number PAL9520. It is also listed on this product page as a related product.

Basically, when you go to install this, and like I'd mentioned, your instructions are very detailed, so it tells you how to install this. What you'll do is go remove the factory tailgate handle. This will go in place of it. You have these 2 wires coming up, the green and the blue. You'll connect those into the short wiring and run that down the tailgate. What you'll do is plug this into the long wiring. This long wiring will run up to the front of your vehicle. Using those quick splice connectors we'll wire in to your vehicle's wiring harness. Again, it includes these cable ties to help take up any slack of this wiring to keep it from hanging down. That should do it for the review on part number PAL8535, the Pop & Lock Custom Power Tailgate Lock, and it's black in color.

Just what I needed! Took about 30min for install with no issues. I think it's something my truck should have come with from the factory. 359727

I haven't installed the lock actuator yet, but the level of service and customer support from these people is extraordinary . My order shipped immediately, they followed up on my survey comments and have gone far beyond what I expected from an internet vendor. I will definitely shop with them again. 306453

The product worked perfectly once installed. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was due to the fairly poor instructions that comes with the unit. In the end I watched 3 or 4 youtube videos but even then the closet one to my truck was a 2017 Access Cab--luckily it is wired exactly like my 2018 Crew Cab. Also, one of the wire connectors that came with the unit cut through the units blue wire so I had to make a trip to the local hardware store to get another connector. After that everything worked perfectly. 475837

I just got done installing the pop and lock on my 2017 Tacoma. Praise to e-trailer for their continued great product support and service. I'll be back! The install was fairly easy. Here are a few tips. First, discard the included instructions because they are worthless. As with almost any other product, YouTube has precise instillation instructions for any vehicle. Second, have on hand some additional zip ties, electrical tape, grease (for the mechanism) and basic tools. The Pop and Lock works well. I worry about the longevity of the mechanism in the Tacoma tailgate. The actuator is one-size-fits-all design. The only thing unique to the Tacoma is the bracket. There's a fair amount of play during both the lock and unlock movements and the Tacoma lock requires a bit of force to move. It works smoothly now but the actuator has to overcome some jerky movements within the lock. I hope it can survive many 1000's duty cycles for the life of the truck. Concerns about longevity aside, I'm very happy with the instillation and function of this accessory. 493949

This is a nice locking system but the instructions are terrible. No pictures to illustrate what to do and they tell you to disconnect both linkages to the latches in the tailgate BUT NEVER TELL YOU TO RECONNECT THEM. If you don't you will NEVER open your tailgate again. Plus only the passenger side need ever be disconnected to install the lock anyway. To connect up the electrical connections they tell you to connect the wires to the terminal block labeled MJ1 in the passenger side door well. But there IS NO terminal block, just unlabeled connectors. Then when I found the right connector the instructions told me to connect the wires for the lock in the reverse order to the correct wires. As a result the tailgate locked when I UNLOCKED the cab locks and UNLOCKED when I locked the cab locks. Evidently they reversed the wire connections inside the lock because I double checked everything was wired up like the instructions say to but the lock worked BACKWARDS!! 268190

Works fine. Loud when activated. Easy install, though the directions are incorrect. 1. Run the wires up the right side of the truck (as viewed from the driver's seat), not the left side as per the directions. 2. The directions have the wire color connections at the passenger kick panel incorrect, they are reversed. Tip: Run the wires from the tailgate to the truck via the backup camera wire loom, and not as per the directions. It will be a cleaner looking job. Drill a small hole next to the camera wire loom in each of the square plastic pugs for the backup camera wire loom. The Pop and Lock wire will pass through these and zip tie the Pop and Lock wire to the camera wires. Place the wire disconnect plug under the truck next to the camera disconnect plug. 477049

The lock arrived promptly. Unfortunately weather delayed the installation. After watching a few install videos since the instructions are vague and also for a Tundra I went to work. The installation took about a hour, as for the wiring connections a test light made it easy to determine the lock and unlock circuits. I would suggest having extra zip ties on hand for securing the harness, in my opinion not enough are included. 473819

Product arrived promptly. I followed some video instructions that I found with a simple google search and the installation was very straigtforward. I only have two caveats: 1) As others have noted, the splice connectors that are included for connecting to the existing wires are garbage and did not work. After fooling around with them for a while I gave up and used some proper in-line splice connectors (without the spades, they just crimp onto both the existing wire and the new wire). 2) The throw of the solenoid is just a little short, but fortunately in the right direction. What this means is that the tailgate gets locked reliably (the latch is thrown into the full lock direction), but when unlocking the mechanism doesn't *quite* make it all the way over. However it does go far enough that lifting the tailgate latch caused the locking mechanism to complete the travel, so from the outside you would never know it. Bottom line is that this was easy to install and now my tailgate latches properly with the rest of the door locks. I only wish I had installed this *before* getting a bunch of gear stolen out of the back of my truck! 116719


Comments

The only issue that I have had is that, as mentioned in my original review, the throw of the solonoid is too short. Over time this has become more and more of an issue and at this point it seems that I almost always have to use the key to unlock the tailgate as the solonoid doesnt do the job.This is mostly just an annoyance as the main reason that I purchased this in the first place was to make sure that the tailgate got locked any time the rest of the truck was locked. Since I always have the key with me its not a huge issue to simply unlock the tailgate when the solonoid doesnt work.

I received my remote tailgate lock yesterday at 2:00 PM and had it installed and working as advertised by 4:00 PM. I could have had it done sooner, but neighbors kept coming over to see what I was doing. The instructions in the box were pretty bad, but I had read everything I could before receiving it and watched several videos online. As a result, I really didn't need the printed instructions anyway. It turned out to be a nice, clean install. I am very happy with my purchase. 444669

Its been a year since I installed the Pop&Lock on my Tacoma. It is working flawlessly. One of the best investments I have made!

This is the second tailgate lock actuator I have purchased in the last year. Ironically, the same part that fits my Tundra also fits my father in law's Tacoma. They work perfectly as described and make accessing and securing the tailgate easy. Why Toyota does not incorporate this accessory available as standard or optional equipment is puzzling. Especially, since the Tacoma doesn't use a key as it keyless entry and start. Yet, one still needs to carry a key to secure/access tailgate. This accessory eliminates the requirement to carry both. Great product and easy to install. Highly recommend. 596056

Super easy install but if you have a 2016-2018 tacoma you will need to watch vids on assembly because the instructions in the box and the manufactures web page both are for a tundra and are different than what you'll need to do. 581605

Installed in 2018 Toyota Tacoma Off Road. Wiring instructions are not correct. That slows down the install some. (FYI is it the Red and Green wires) Other than that seems to work good. I am happy with it. 524502

Does the job. A bit tricky to install (make sure you really clamp down on those wire connectors). Not a big fan of the noise it makes when it locks and unlocks - I would have preferred a less clunky sound. But it does the job. 514304

Great item. Very very easy to install. Now I never have to worry if the rear door is lock. My items are safer and secured, once I hit the lock button. Will recommend to purchase and keep ya items yours. This takes the guesswork out to wether you locked the rear door by key. Just push your lock button, and the door is locked. 346911
