Is Drilling Required to Install the Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Lock on a 2012 Honda Ridgeline


Does installation of the above tailgate lock require drillig a hole in the tailgate?


Expert Reply:

The Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Lock, # PAL6100, does require drilling for installation, but you will not have to drill into the tailgate of your 2012 Honda Ridgeline. The installation instructions call for two 3/16 inch diameter holes (5 mm) and one 1/2 inch (12 mm) hole to be drilled into the back of the handle bezel.

The handle bezel will be exposed once you remove the trim piece on the inside of the tail gate. I have attached a photo showing how you will drill into the handle bezel.
