Video Transcript for Pop and Lock Vehicle Locks - Tailgate Lock - PAL9900 Review

Today we're going to review part number PAL9900. This is the Pop and Lock Gate Defender Universal Tailgate Lock for removable tailgates. This is designed to fit most late model trucks with removable tailgates. This is a universal fit lock, helps prevent the theft of your truck's removable tailgate. It's a very easy tool for installation around your passenger side tailgate hinge. Does include also the 2 keys, and it also has this adapter ring, which is included for trucks that have a smaller tailgate hinge.

This is a corrosion resistant stainless steel hasp and lock cylinder. Has a high strength plastic housing. When this is installed, it does not interfere with tailgate operation. This part is made in the USA. Basically, when you go to install this, what you'll do is open your tailgate, then you take your cap off your lock, put your key in there, unlock it, pull out the hasp. So when you open your tailgate, you'll slip this metal hasp around the hinge on the passenger side of your truck, and then all you have to do is take the lock part of it, line it up into the holes, and just push it on and that'll lock it.

That way they cannot remove the tailgate from your vehicle. Also, with it installed, you can close the tailgate with the lock installed. It will not interfere with the tailgate operation. Again, they mention this adapter ring. On some vehicles, it might have a smaller tailgate hinge. What you'll want to do, is when you go to install it, if you need to use this adapter ring, you slide this over the hinge first, then put your hasp on, and then go ahead and lock it.

Then go ahead and put your cap over the lock to protect it. That should do it for the review on part number PAL9900, a Pop and Lock Gate Defender Universal Tailgate Lock for removable tailgates.

Product is as expected. Fit my 2012 Tacoma with included adapter ring. Hoping it will keep the honest people honest. Wait time was a bit longer than hoped (1 month) as they were awaiting shipment from their supplier but they did reply after order to notify me of the wait. 480972

Easy to install...and for the most part it will ward off the "fast and furious" tail gate thieves...they'll get frustrated and go to other easier targets. Good value for the money. 220249

I purchased this item to help secure my sons new tailgate. His original tailgate was stolen off the back of his truck. This lock will make it difficult to steal. I will be purchasing 2 more for my other two boys trucks. 304037

We recently purchased 2 tailgate locks for my removable tailgate. They were easy to put on. I tried removing the tailgate off with the locks in place & it looks like the next thief will have trouble stealing this one. Since my first tailgate was stolen I might purchase an extra lock since stealing tailgates is becoming popular here in AZ. These locks are great and it's cheaper to invest in these locks than to buy a new tailgate. I would recommend this product. Phoenix, AZ 373613

Works pretty good. Easy to install and does not get in the way. Nice to not have to worry about my tailgate and it did not cost much at all 466604

I love how easy the installation went ! The easy down feature is something I wish the manufacturer would have had as a feature but thankfully this product is out and works absolutely perfect. I also bought the tailgate lock and that was super easy to install as well and provides peace of mind . Even though the tailgate locks when truck is locked up it is nice to know that if I forget to lock the truck up my gate is still safe from thieves . Great products all the way around ! Thanks ! 475066

Easy to place on. Lock comes with additional spacer if needed. I used the spacer on 2017 Nissan Frontier. Keep in mind, any lock can be broken with proper tools & time. But I feel this lock would definitely stop the "stalker thieves" that hang out at parking lots waiting for unsuspecting driver who plans on parking then going into a store. Such thieves look for the quick "snatch N go". This lock would have them look else where for a easier/quicker target. 323150

2015 Ford F150. Pop & Lock, The Gate Defender is a great product. A little tough getting hasp out of lock at first, but loosened up after a few times. Attached to tailgate with ease and should be the deterrent needed to keep tailgate from being stolen. 499177

Great product, keeps the tailgate secure, easy to install, difficult to take off unless you have the key. Never have to worry about my tailgate coming up missing with this on. 270869



- PAL9900
by:
2006 Toyota Tacoma

After looking at the basic tailgate locks that required replacing the handle, I decided that I did not want another key jangling around in my pocket. I couldn't tell for sure whether keyed alike locks would require additional time and effort (trip to the dealer) after the sale. I simply wanted a basic deterrent that would work. This seems to fit the bill. 428000


Comments

Tailgate is still on both trucks. I even put one of these locks on a truck with a lockable tailgate. I tend to forget to lock the tailgate every time but with the Pop and Lock, no need to remember. A little extra peace of mind.

How do you know if a lock prevents theft unless you catch the thief in the act? I don't know either but I suspect that this lock will do exactly that..prevent theft of my very expensive tailgate. Incredibly easy to install..literally about 2 minutes. Inexpensive and easy to install peace of mind...especially when I've already chased off a thief trying to get a tailgate off a previous truck with a more complex to install lock...buy this and rest easier at night or when your truck is parked with nobody around but creeps... 621916

I have had my tailgate lock on my 2015 Tacoma for 1 year,and I am so happy with my purchase. I have not had any problems, it's still like brand new. Great product, easily installed, affordable protection. Best of all is the peace of mind it gives me. I recommend it to any truck owner. 614712

This product fits perfectly on my 2014 Tacoma. Fits snuggly, yet fairly easy to remove when the tailgate needs to be taken out. Only small thing about that is that it was a bit tricky to install. The tailgate has to be partially taken off the hinge but once you work around that, it fits nicely. This is a good product. 609854

It came in on the day it was promised, so I was very happy about that! The only thing that I had a problem with was that it took us 30 mins to install, but other than that, I was happy I placed the order.. hope it is strong enough for someone not to steal my tailgate! 597028

Bryan W was very helpful when I wrote to advise the lock would not unlock. He gave me some hints and offered to replace it but I was able to get it working with the use of WD40. I then installed the lock on my 2010 Tacoma with no problem. My City has been plagued by a series of tailgate thefts and this lock gives me piece of mind. I appreciated the immediate customer service response. 584213

I would give this zero stars if able. This item sent to me is obviously defective. It will not open with the provided key. Therefore it's USELESS.

Ask the Experts about this Pop and Lock Vehicle Locks


  • Tailgate Lock for 2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The Conversion Kit # PAL8525 you referenced would only be used to add power to an existing Pop & Lock. To add a tailgate lock to your 2015 Ford F-250 it will need to have an 8' bed, and to add a powered lock you need to have the factory power locks on your truck. If your '15 F-250 is a Crew Cab with factory power locks you need the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PAL8250-PL9510. Should you have factory power locks but do NOT have a Crew Cab you need the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate...

  • Tailgate Lock Recommendation for 2017 Toyota Tacoma
  • We have a tailgate lock that is confirmed as a fit for your 2017 Toyota Tacoma made by Pop and Lock but it is not the lock you mentioned. Instead you would want the part # PAL8535.

  • Does Tailgate Lock # PAL9900 Fit 2010 Ford F-150
  • I checked and the tailgate lock part # PAL9900 is a confirmed fit for your 2010 Ford F-150. With these you have to install the lock on the side of the tailgate that is designed to pivot out when lowered to remove it. Normally this is the passenger side.

  • Tailgate Lock Recommendation for a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500
  • For your 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 we have two option styles for a tailgate lock. We have the electric power lock style part # PAL8350 that will lock the handle of the manual style part # PAL9900 that locks the tailgate to the truck. If the goal is to lock the tailgate handle the only option is the electric part # PAL8350 which I attached an install video for since the other options all lock the tailgate to the truck.

  • How Many Pop and Lock Gate Defenders Is Needed for 2006 Toyota Tacoma Tailgate

  • Tailgate Lock Recommendation for a 2005 Dodge Dakota Crew Cab
  • I have a solution for you, but the part # PAL1700 that you referenced will not fit a 2005 Dodge Dakota. For a similar tailgate lock you would want the part # PAL9900 which has been confirmed as a fit for your truck and would work well. Or if you wanted something that wires to your vehicle power locks you would want the part # PAL8100. This will unlock and lock with the power locks of your truck.

These types of locks prevent theft of the tailgate itself. If you want to prevent the tailgate from opening you could use # PAL8250 but it is only compatible if the truck has power door locks.
