You’ve probably seen it on the news: tailgate theft is on the rise. From casual thieves who just want a tailgate better than the one on their own truck, to organized stolen parts crime rings, unscrupulous people are on the lookout for nice tailgates. The demand is high – tailgates are routinely damaged as trucks are used, and acquisition is easy – most tailgates don’t have locks and it takes only seconds to remove them.

But take a few minutes to browse the quality products on this page and you’ll see that it’s very easy to prevent becoming a victim of tailgate theft. From simple, inexpensive locks that will keep your tailgate attached to your truck, to integrated locks that will protect your tailgate and the contents of your truck bed, we have the devices that will foil the opportunistic thief as well as professional stolen tailgate providers.
The main reason tailgate theft is so prevalent is that tailgate removal is so simple: just unclip the cables and lift the tailgate from the pivot. But as soon as a potential thief sees one of our hinge-mounted locks on your tailgate, he’s going to abandon his pursuit in favor of easier prey. The hinge-mount lock completely encircles the tailgate pivot, preventing tailgate removal. These keyed lock are easy to install, and once in place won’t interfere with tailgate operation. But if you’re looking for security that will protect your cargo as well as your tailgate, consider a tailgate handle lock.
A tailgate handle mounted lock won’t just prevent the theft of your tailgate, it will keep the tailgate from being opened without a key. Couple your locking tailgate with a bed cap or hard-shell tonneau cover, and you’ve got complete cargo security. We offer complete keyed replacement handles, including models with locks that can be encoded to use your ignition key, and locks that can be attached to your existing tailgate handle. Choose manual or power operation. We offer harnesses that will integrate the lock to work with your truck’s power lock system, and separate switch kits for a standalone power tailgate lock.
In addition to tailgate security, we also offer related products to ease truck cap and tonneau cover operation, and give your truck a custom appearance. Our truck cap power lock kit comes with and without handle and enables you to lock/unlock your cap using your factory key fob. The power tonneau lock enables you to “pop” open your hard-shell tonneau cover with the included key fob, just like the trunk of a car. And if you have a hard-shell tonneau, why not relocate your tailgate handle to the inside of the panel using one of our relocator kits, for a smooth, custom look and complete cargo safety.
