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.

The first set I ordered was stolen from my mailbox by a low life scum. So I contacted e-trailer and informed them of what happened and they were very helpful in shipping a new replacement as soon as they received the police report I sent them. This pop and lock product is a great upgrade to my tacoma. I do recomend this company to anybody who are looking to buy upgrades for your trucks. I just used the open and close button on theremote to open the tail gate now, instead of using the key. GREAT PRODUCT. 678300

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

Love my 2019 Tundra, its great for towing and I like to leave the bed set up with all our gear. The Limited Edition does not have a tailgate that locks with the doors and I'm afraid I'll forget to lock it sometime... this is the perfect solution. Took my time on install and it took about an hour and a half. I've seen some posts and instruction videos that state the wire color noted on the instructions is not correct, however the wires stated (red and white with silver dash) for the 2019 were spot on. It seems to be well made and its refreshing these days to find a quality product that works as advertised. 656449

After about a full year of everyday use. The lock system still works as designed! I lock this unit over s dozen times per day minimum. I installed this unit in my 2017 Tundra in about 30 minutes. Very pleased with this product. I can hear the lock engage which I like, because I know it without a doubt it’s locked and my tools are secure. 629759

I was on the fence about ordering this and just getting a regular key for the tailgate. Then, after a call to the dealership, I realized that this was only $20 more than buying a key. I ordered it and installed it in less than 30 minutes. It was even easier to install than I was expecting. I should have bought this LONG ago. Now to convince my friend to buy one too!! 683035

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

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!

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

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

I have purchased three of these devices. One was for a 2nd generation Tacoma and two for my 3rd generation Tacoma. The lock for the 2nd gen never had a problem. On the 3rd gen, the actuator stopped functioning properly after 3 years (out of warranty). I contacted Pop and Lock directly for recommendations, not to get a free replacement. It took over two weeks of back-and-forth communication, which did not help solve the problem. In the end, they asked me what parts I wanted to purchase...even though I contacted them for their recommendation. Having had a tailgate stolen previously, I installed a secondary anti-theft device while this was being resolved. I ended up purchasing a second unit and swapped out the actuator, which resolved the problem (a ten-minute task). The Representative at Etrailer was very helpful at providing previous purchase info to verify I had originally ordered the correct unit, as well as talking through the feedback provided by Pop and Lock. Pop and Lock looked at my video and thought I had the incorrect part or had already replaced it with the wrong part. I have always had great service with Etrailer. However, my interactions with Pop and Lock were less than stellar. 667612

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

Pop n lock works great. Install easy. Brought wire up through grommet under passenger seat instead of fire wall. Clean install. 732731

Excellent product. Shipped same day I ordered, and was easy to install. Be sure to follow a video or the instructions and allow yourself a few hours to put everything in correctly. I own a 2019 TRD Sport 2WD, and I spliced the green to green wire and the blue to the red wire on the power lock at the passenger side. The instructions say to do green to black, and blue to green, which didn't apply for my truck. After that, my tailgate locks and unlocks with the car! 732489
