Custom Tailgate Locks

For Maximum Cargo Safety

One of the best things about truck tailgates is that they can be removed quite easily, and that allows for a certain flexibility in how you use them. Unfortunately, this also means that a thief can quite easily remove your tailgate and carry it away while your truck is parked somewhere. A tailgate lock is a smart investment that will help secure your tailgate and increase the security of your truck, and at CARiD you can find various tailgate locks for your truck.

When you install a tailgate lock, you'll be certain that the tailgate of your truck can't be removed unless you specifically unlock it. Different locks tend to work in different ways, but their purpose is always the same. Depending on the type of a lock, you may need a separate key or remote in order to lock and unlock it. There are some tailgate locks designed to use the same key or remote as the rest of the locks on your truck, which can be convenient.

One thing that is worth noting however, is that tailgate locks alone will not protect the contents of your truck bed. After all, while your tailgate may not be able to be opened or removed, there's nothing that is stopping a thief from just reaching into your truck bed and pulling out whatever it contains. That is why if you're looking to protect whatever you're carrying around, it is necessary to pair a tailgate lock with a good bed cover – preferably a hard one as opposed to a soft one that can be easily broken into. Some of the better tailgate locks will lock the bed cover in place too, but for others you may need a separate lock for that.

If you're looking at tailgate locks and are at least mildly appearance-conscious, then it might be a good idea to look for those that complement the trim of your truck and also fit in seamlessly at the handle. Some tailgate locks are designed specifically to fit certain trucks, and choosing from amongst those should ease the installation process somewhat. Other tailgate locks aren't installed at the handles but are located at the hinges instead and can stand out a fair bit. At the end of the day, it is up to you to decide which sort of lock you'd like to install.

When it comes to installation, tailgate locks aren't known for being too complicated. Most can be installed fairly quickly, and it should take well under an hour to do so. Generally, manual tailgate locks tend to be a lot easier to install than the powered variants as the latter may require a little bit of wiring and that can often be a bit of a hurdle – particularly if you've never done any wiring on a truck in the past. By following the provided instructions, you should be able to cope alone, but if you run into any issues, you may need to have a pro install it for you.

Had to modify lock to work better than the way it came. Also the plastic clips broke when installing the cover plate. Not sure how the product could be improved but it does work to lock the tailgate.
