This was one of the easiest installs I have done. The directions and Video made it easy. Sure beats the stuffing out of pulling the key out of the fob every night to lock up the tailgate. Just don't understand why Toyota has not included the wiring in the harness.

Old version at new price. New version includes plug and play t-harness, this version requires you to splice into the working harness of the truck. Had I known they were selling old stock at top dollar prices I would have purchased elsewhere. Buyer beware.

I did reach out to Pop N Lock and we did not have the tailgate lock that included the harness on our site. It has been added as part # PL34FR

Took about a hour for a 78 year old to install. Works great. Great way to get rid of keys.

Working great. Protects my items in the bed. Took me approximately 2 hrs. to install. Not bad for a 78 year old.

All the parts are there, and the quality looks excellent. Unfortunately, due to recent surgery, it will take two weeks before my install.

Installed on my tundra in about 1.5hrs- instructions were very clear, no issues and a great addition to the truck.

Easy install and a year later still working perfectly. I would recommend this added option for security and convenience.

Nice product and easy to install with minimal tools and good instructions, You Tube is your friend.

2013 Toyota Tundra

The issue i had was on my 2013 Tundra, once you tighten the 1 bolt the whole actuator tilts and misses the lock mechanism. I had to shim the other side to make it work.



by:

Amazing product, easy install and a year later still works perfectly.

I gave it four stars because the product itself is outstanding. The instructions, however, are garbage. I considered making a video and sending for free, in order to help people who want to purchase this excellent product but won't be able to install it.

Specifically, the electrical instructions are the problem. The pictures aren't clear and don't describe how to splice the product into the mix. I recommend far better pictures and even a video that details the install procedure.

Bottom line: The product itself is excellent. The instructions are absolute garbage.



by:

Easy to install. Fits and works just like OEM.



by:

Instructions on t tap needs improvement but other than that very good

  • Is Tonno TPHF-562 Pro Hard Folding Tonneau Cover for 2019 Toyota Tacoma Lockable
    The # TPHF-562 tonneau cover does not have a lock on it, but since it opens from the underside it will be secure if your tailgate is lockable. In other words, the cover can't be opened until you gain access by opening the tailgate. If the tailgate doesn't have the OEM lock on it, you can install one on your 2019 Toyota Tacoma using the # PL54FR from Pop&Lock. I've linked you to a video showing how the tailgate lock is installed.
