I was a little concern to do the electrical wiring myself, but it worked out good. The hardest part was putting the gate back together , but that worked out with a little patience! 590795

The Pop and Lock unit I installed on my 2019 Honda Ridgeline quickly solved all of my security and safety concerns. Due to the extreme weather in December in the Northwest I had Rainier RV install the unit for me. It took less than an hour and was a breeze. Everything needed for installation was provided and the result is outstanding. From delivery on time , product as described and promised to ease of installation, I couldn’t be more pleased. 590970

Once all the issues were resolved the product works as expected. Had to modify one of the metal arms (bend) to get the swing door part of the tailgate to unlock. On a positive note, customer service at Pop and Lock was fantastic. Also, there is a better way to connect to the door locks than shown in the video - I connected mine to the driver side rear door using the connection behind the driver seat belt panel. Remove the rear door jam panel along the floor, then remove the front door jam panel along the floor, then the seat belt panel pops off easily. Under the vehicle near the front of the rear door, remove the rubber plug, on the inside of the rear door is a rubber plug exposed where the panel was removed. Route the wire from under the car through these openings and follow the wiring harness into the frame between the front and the rear doors. Pressing the tab release the connector from the door wiring. remove the clip holding the wiring into the door. This will make connecting the wires easier. Tap into the small red wire and yellow wires - green to red - purple to yellow. You can Google the installation to see a video. 608713

I feel like my Ridgeline is now secure. Great add on for the Ridgeline onece you install a Toneau cover. Works great. The only difficulty with installation is taking the time to install and properly run the wiring to fuse panel. 595951

Pop-lock installed perfectly on my 2019 Honda Ridgeline Black Edition. I routed wire up through left side rear door seal area and then to door piller wiring bundle, instead of through fire wall to fuse box. Took extra care and time in routing and tying wire under vehicle. Used nylon ties provided plus 10 or so more. Rented a lift for 1 hour for ease of wire routing. When hooking up wires in door piller, Install purple wire to small red wire, and green wire to the smaller yellow wire. It was a very easy, and smooth transaction from etrailer. Product was as described in web site, and received lock within 3 or 4 days. Great product. Great seller! 547007

The product is working fine, no problems so far. Wires were routed to divers side door seal then up to the dash wires door lock, attached to red and yellow wires with parts that came with the wiring. I am very pleased with how the tail gate locks and unlocks, creates a very safe place to store my tools and valuables.

I installed this on my 2018 Ridgeline. The install was easy to do. The directions that came with the lock kit were ok,not great. I found an install video on line that was much better. Also, etrailer has an install video on the wiring process. This is a great video. Thank you etrailer for that. Total time for the install, stat to finish was about 2.5 hours. After the parts were installed, the tailgate developed a rattle from inside the tailgate. I took it apart again and found that the new linkage was a bit loose and hitting the original rods. I insulated the parts that were causing the noise and that solved the issue. I would recommend this be done at the original time of installing the kit. Great kit, works like it came from the factory. 512827

4 stars because it’s been installed couple of days however it’s working as advertised. The mechanical aspect is straight forward and has good fit but added hard foam to support actuator. I didn’t like gap between skin and actuator body. The electrical aspect is different and one has to have more than common sense to route wires into cab through fender. Several items need partial removal to have good access. Video doesn’t show all it entails to properly install this device. One has to check ‘lock’ wire with door closed otherwise no signal from tester. It’s in the lofic of car system. I used wire blocks (Wago) instead crimping. Space is ‘very’ limited. Be patient and smart. Looking fwd to find reliability of this product. 538310

All is working as advertised. I’m glad I purchased this product. I did a bit more by rust treating the area and weather proof connections. I recommend 100.

After getting over the shock that Honda does not put locks in their Ridgelines I found this lock on etrailer and ordered mine. I did my own installation using their video as a guide. My only regret was not having to wire stripper used in the video. There is not much room to work with under the dash but I managed to finish with no problems. Everything works as promised. Definately a must for every Ridgeline. 552804


Comments
One of the bolts holding the locking mechanism became loose and I had to install a lock washer and resolved the problem. Recently the lower door release seems to stick in the locked position when I unlock the doors. I may have to take the cover off to see what the issue is.

I've had the pop & lock installed on my 2019 Ridgeline for nearly a year. So far I've had no issues with the lock. I did the alternate routing for the power which comes in behind the rear seat and goes below the left hand door trim up to the connection in the B-pillar. This made for an easier and cleaner install in my opinion. 837088

YouTube video was more helpful than the written instructions it came with. Installing the lock mechanically was very simple. Running the control wires under the vehicle is best left for a young man (I'm 66 and felt it afterwards :) ). Be careful with the wires on the vehicle itself - they are very thin gauge. 804149

Honda Ridgeline tailgate lock working really well after approximately a year and a half. It was easy to install and works with the truck remote. It's really nice to be able to secure my truck bed as I also installed a locking bed cover. Etrailer provided good instructions. I definitely recommend this product and etrailer as well. They are helpful and sell quality products at a reasonable price. 794029

The Pop n Lock has worked flawlessly over the past year. It’s convenient to be able to lock/unlock the tailgate simultaneously with the doors. 783167

The instructions for the installation of the power lock on my 2019 Honda Ridgeline were easy to follow making for quick installation. I did experience problems with consistent unlocking due to a broken hair spring on the return mechanism not drawing the locking arm to the rest position. After contacting the help line and not being able to wait for a new unit I decided to make the repairs myself. The locking mechanism has performed consistently now for the last year. It is a good compliment to the truck tonneau providing security with easy unlocking with the normal truck keyless entry. 782593

2017 Honda Ridgeline

I have a 2017 Honda Ridgeline on which I installed a sturdy truck bed cover. Unfortunately the Ridgeline did not have any locking mechanism for the tailgate. I was moving out of state and wanted to secure items I would leave in the bed: I then found the "Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock." The price was right and an on line video was available to help with installation. My on line order arrived quickly. The written instructions were clear and the parts fit perfectly. The hardest part of the installation was guiding and securing the electrical wire under the truck from the tailgate up through the engine compartment back to the fuse box under the dash board (I am almost 70 so it probably took longer than if a younger person did the work!). Result: The unit works perfectly with the key fob in conjunction with the door locks on the truck. I can lock/unlock the tailgate from inside the cabin using the door lock button or remotely lock/unlock the tailgate using the key fob. Gives great peace of mind knowing the tailgate is securely locked and items in the bed are safe. Excellent product! 778200

Very good locking device. Electrical provided a challenge. Getting the wiring into the cab was relatively easy, but connecting the wiring to the Honda wiring harness was difficult. The wiring harness wiring is very thin and it is located in a difficult area to maneuver in. I ultimately had to pay to have the final connection done professionally. Money well spent. If you are good at electrical installation, you probably won't have a problem. 775410

I’ve had mine installed now for a year. Works great. No issues with rattles either. Installation took all of an hour with the hardest part getting the wire up in to the cab. If you have a hard cover on the back you need this to help secure your stuff 775220
