2018 Honda Ridgeline

I installed the etrailer Pop and Lock tailgate lock on my 2018 Honda Ridgeline. The item was delivered very quickly. The instructions were clear enough but there were several YouTube videos that made the installation easy.

Since I installed it I can't believe I went 3 years without it. Coupled with my trifold tonneau cover, I now have a secure place in the back of my truck.


I have used the lock for a year now and t still works fine. My wife had to talk me into installing it but she was right.


This product works ok and I appreciated the modest cost. My only concern, which prevented a 5 star rating, was the use of a spring in the solution. I had trouble with the spring after opening the box. Customer Service was great and sent me a new one. The experience leads me to wonder how long the spring will function properly after repeated use.


It's a lock that lets me lock the pickup gate. Easy to install and so far no issues.

Greg - 04/21/2022


My Honda has an after-market alarm that won't allow for the installation of the electronic version of the Pop&Lock. The manual locking version of Pop&Lock was my only option. Installation was straight forward once I found a YouTube video. Installation took about one hour; but, I wasn't in a hurry. Pictures in the instructions that came with the product were blurry and didn't provide enough detail to be useful; but, the YouTube video was more than adequate. Pop&Lock should solve my need for locking the tailgate; manually.


Product works great and easy install, directions are spot on


This product is great. Very easy to install with clear instructions provided. Provides security both locally and for trips. I highly recommend for anyone with a tonneau or topper. Additionally, very speedy handling and shipping by Etrailer.

2019 Honda Ridgeline

2017 Honda Ridgeline

The pop and lock for our 2017 Honda Ridgeline arrived promptly and was nicely packed. My husband and I had no problem installing it with the instructions provided. Thanks!

2019 Honda Ridgeline

Internet saved me on putting this on but it come out great good product!!! 3 I enjoyed shopping at the e-trailer and I'll go back when need!!! All the sales people were knowledgeable and polite thanks!!!


I like the manual one over the electric one. In the winter time the electric one does not work. It freezes up.


Had it for about a year. Easy to install! No problems at all

  • Does the Pop&Lock Still Allow Your Tailgate to Be Manually Unlocked
    The Pop&Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PL6200 comes with 2 keys included for the tailgate locking mechanism, so you'll never be locked out if for some reason the power lock failed. The Pop&Lock is a great solution to provide a secure storage space on your truck bed when paired with a tonneau cover or camper shell. I attached a photo that shows the lock that is built into the handle, which will be operated by the included keys.

  • Will Pop & Lock Tailgate Lock Work on 2019 Honda Ridgeline with Dual Action Tailgate
    As long as your Ridgeline wasn't manufactured after April 2019 (if you're unsure you can provide your VIN to a local Honda dealer and they can tell you really quickly) the Pop & Lock Tailgate Lock # PL6200 will work perfectly. Once installed, it will require a key to unlock and open the tailgate, whether pulling it down or swinging it out to the side. The kit includes all the necessary hardware to make this happen. I've attached the install instructions below that you can check out as well.

  • Can You Paint the Pop & Lock # PL6200 to Match the Paint Code on My 2017 Honda Ridgeline?
    I have an answer for you about the paint code on the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock with Handle - Manual Lock - Black # PL6200. Even though Pop & Lock does not offer paint code customization or different colored handles, it is possible to paint the handle yourself or through a local auto painter. Since the lock is made of ABS plastic, paint will stick to the surface. With that being said, I recommend reaching out to a local body shop to see if they use a special process or have specific...

  • Pop & Lock Locking Tailgate Handle for 2019 Honda Ridgeline
    The Pop & Lock # PL6200 locking tailgate handle replaces the OEM handle and will prevent your tailgate from being opened period, whether it be swinging to the side or tilting downward. If you wanted the lock to be powered along with your doors, you'd add the # PL8630 power upgrade kit. This will also work if you have the factory back up camera.

  • Electronic Lock Kit for 2019 Honda Ridgeline with OEM Tailgate Handle
    For your 2019 Honda Ridgeline I recommend the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PAL8600. It's customized to fit your Ridgeline's OEM tailgate handle, and fits inside the factory mechanism. It is compatible if your Ridgeline has a back up camera as well. Since you have the OEM manual locking tailgate, no replacement handle is needed, and keeping the factory painted one looks nicer in the end. It wires into your door locks so when you lock or unlock your doors, your tailgate will too. The...

  • Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock for 2006 Honda Ridgeline
    For a manual tailgate lock for the 2006 Honda Ridgeline, you'll want to use # PAL6100. There's also a powered version available as # PL8660. The # PL6200 you referenced is a fit for the 2017-2019 Ridgeline, and wouldn't fit on the 1st generation vehicle.

  • Pop and Lock Power Locking Tailgate Parts Needed for 2019 Honda Ridgeline
    Since your 2019 Honda Ridgeline does not have a locking tailgate handle currently you'd need the # PAL8600 you referenced plus the # PL6200 and you'd have a locking tailgate for your 2019 Honda Ridgeline that will lock and unlock with the power locks of the vehicle!

  • Pop & Lock Tailgate Lock Kits for 2019 Honda Ridgeline
    Pop & Lock Manual Tailgate Lock kit # PL6200 fits the 2017 and 2018 Ridgeline but not the 2019 model year. For the 2019 we do offer kits that you can see on the linked page. Part # PAL8600 is a black power tailgate lock and part # PL8675 is a black combination power/manual lock. Both wire into the truck's existing power door locks, so when you lock your truck, you lock your tailgate too. Switch kit # PAL9520, sold separately, is available for trucks without existing power locks. I linked...
