Review of the Pop and Lock The Gate Defender Truck Tailgate Lock

Today we'll be taking a look at the Pop and Lock truck tailgate lock, part number PAL9900. As you can see, with the Pop and Lock tailgate lock installed, it's going to give you some piece of mind, ensuring that your tailgate doesn't get stolen. The Universal Tailgate lock is going to fit a wide variety of trucks with removable tailgates. It includes two keys, and it's a tool-free installation. Without the lock installed, you can see how easy it is to remove our tailgate. The Pop and Lock tailgate lock is the perfect solution for adding additional security to your tailgate.

It's a pretty simple installation. Let's go over some of the features, real quick.The Lock cylinder is made of a high strength plastic, with a cap covering our lock, there, so the elements can't get to it. The hasp is made out of a corrosion-risistent stainless steel, so we can ensure that it's going to hold up to the elements. It also includes an adapter for your smaller or mid-size trucks. It's going to help hold a better locking fit.for your tailgate.

Let's go ahead and get it installed. We'll unlock it, and we'll remove the hasp. The easiest way to do this . We need to be on the passenger side here, only. We're going to slide it in, and then we'll turn it around. We'll grab our locking cylinder, and we're going to line it up with these two grooves, here, and then push that in place.

We'll take our dust cap with that, and even with it installed, we can close our tailgate. As you can see, with that being done, it's not as easy to remove. That's going to complete our look at the Pop and Lock truck tailgate lock, part number PAL9900.
