Do you want to shield your truck bed cargo from the snooping eyes of thieves? We have the most reliable power tailgate locks by Pop & Lock. They're crafted from heavy-duty armored steel and designed to provide many years of reliable service life. First and foremost, the lock works with your power door locks and is activated with your keyless entry remote lock button. Yes, it is that easy and convenient: when you lock the doors of your pickup truck, the tailgate locks automatically with them! And that means that you won't need to double-check whether you've locked the door.

Moreover, the Pop & Lock power tailgate lock includes all necessary wiring harness and connectors for a fairly easy installation. Forget about drilling holes, instead, mount the lock inside your tailgate's handle and enjoy the convenience of one-button activation. In case your pickup truck doesn't have power door locks, Pop & Lock offers an optional switch kit to help you accommodate the lock. You can find one on our website. And for your unwavering confidence in Pop & Lock, the quality of its items is backed by a one-year warranty.

The Pop & Lock® company has been leading the automotive aftermarket industry for over 18 years. Initially, Pop & Lock pursued production of manual and power tailgate locks only. After some time, they started expanding their product line, offering special applications for emerging trucks with tailgates. Today, along with the tailgate locks, Pop & Lock provides various locks for tonneau covers and truck caps, replacement handles to accommodate the locks, LED light kits for truck bed illumination, etc. All Pop & Lock products are manufactured to the highest quality standards in the industry in order to provide exceptional service life without compromising the overall design.

Installed on a 2013 Tacoma TRD
Pop & Lock® PL8521 - Power Tailgate Lock
Overall the Pop and Lock does what it says it will do. It seems to work with authority and while it may be a little loud it doesn't sound flimsy. I wired mine to the passenger side so keep the cycle count down, as others have suggested. I routed it through the A/C drain tube hole. When you close your tailgate you will hear a vibrating sound like flicking a spring door stop. Could probably use 2 sided tape and some foam between the locking mechanism and the tailgate wall to prevent this. Very satisfied so far and very impressed with CARiD customer service and shipping speed.
