Video Transcript for Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Handle Review

Ryan: How's it going, Ryan here at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Handle with both a power lock, as well as the manual lock. Many people decide to put a cover on their truck to help keep the items inside more secure, only to find out even when the truck itself is locked, that the tailgate will still open regardless. And that defeats the purpose of the cover itself, and that's where the pop and lock is going to come into play. It's going to allow you to keep your tailgate locked up, keeping your items inside of your bed secure, and it's going to be really easy to do that. Not only are you going to be able to lock it from inside of your cab, using your factory lock switch, you're going to be able to unlock and lock it using your key fob.

And since we have a manual key, you're also going to be able to do it using the included keys, which is one of the things that sets us apart.Many of the other ones are just electronically controlled, but I, however, like having that peace of mind, knowing if something we're to happen to those electronics, you can still easily open and lock your tailgate. And in our case, we have a ridge-line that also has a lever down here and swings the tailgate open from the side. So if your vehicle is like that as well, pop and lock is also going to lock that handle. Many of the questions we get is if the backup camera is going to work. And the answer is yes, it's going to fit perfectly into the handle, just like it would from the factory.

So ultimately, this is going to give you a little bit more peace of mind, knowing everything is secure regardless of the situation.Everything is going to be located within the tailgate, so it's nice and convenient and everything's in one spot. Now, the way it's going to work is our actuator is going to be driven from our lock and unlock switch inside of the cab, and that way, whenever this locks, it'll stop the tailgate from opening. So for example, if I grab the handle down here, it's an unlocked position, you can see this mechanism going completely down, pulling the rods in, letting our tailgate open. But if we hit lock it from the inside, this actuator will pull back and there will be a piece here that won't allow our handle to open all the way, and so that's how it's going to lock our tailgate. Once we unlock it, it'll come forward and give us the full sweep, allowing our tailgate to come open.

And that'll finish up our look at of the Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Handle with both a power and manual lock.

Purchased for 2012 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab to make easier to lock/unlock the tailgate without having to use keys. Works great to be able to use your key fob or door cluster to lock/unlock the tailgate when you lock/unlock your doors. Ran wiring through existing clip for backup camera so no need to drill through tailgate. Purchased PAL9772 also and ran together with wire hose and wire hose tee where they meet under the drivers side taillight. Be sure to leave tailgate open to check the lock button works to lock the tailgate, if not reverse the two wires at the lock mechanism. Also applied white lithium grease to all moving parts before putting tailgate panel back on. Great product and customer service at etrailer.com. Thank You!

Product was easy to install, But you can hear the power lock rattle in the tailgate when you close it. You are able to stop the rattle with a little work with foam. Overall I am very happy with the product

I have attached a photo showing where the backup camera installs in the Pop and Lock Locking Tailgate Handle, # PAL85403 (white) and # PAL8540 (black). You will notice a slot in the back of the tailgate handle housing, and a small knock-out on the underside of the housing that would need to be removed.

  • Difference Between PAL8540 and PAL8550 For a 2007 Toyota Tacoma
    Both of the Pop and Lock Tailgate locks you mentioned part # PAL8540 and # PAL8550 are a fit for your 2007 Toyota Tacoma and both come with the ability to manually lock and power lock the handle. The difference is that the part # PAL8540 comes with a lock cylinder that can be programmed to your truck key so you would only need one key to operate the setup. The part # PAL8550 comes with a separate key.

A nice thing about this system is that it also features a manual lock and key in case your truck battery were to ever fail. For just a powered system only, you can use the Pop & Lock # PAL8521.

    There are powered tailgate locks available for your 2013 Toyota Tacoma. We have # PAL85403 for white and # PAL8550 for black. In order for the power tailgate locks to work the truck has to have power door locks. If it doesn't then you would need to add switch kit # PAL9520.
