I installed my Pop n Lock tailgate lock yesterday, without much trouble. I wasn't impressed with the build quality of the lock though, as one of the two pin/bolts came off as I was putting the nut on it. Luckily, I was able to get it on securely, and to my satisfaction. Makes me wonder just how long this lock will stay on before I see it bouncing down the road behind me.

They are cheap pieces of crap. I had one on my 01 Taco and wasn't impressed. I am looking elsewhere for my 06 tailgate lock.

Some company should make a locking latch that replaces the whole stock latch, but attaches to the linkage.

I have only used my lock a few times and already the key hardly works. Recently the key will not even go into the lock. Anyone else have this problem? At least it is a dealer installed accessory so they can warranty it.

WOW!! I've been actually thinking of getting a Pop & Lock. I think ya'll just made up my mind for me. Shit, for $35.00, you would think you would get some type of quality out of it.

I got a Pod&Lock for my last truck and I never fully installed it.

I didn't like the looks of it when it came (internet order) but after having it mostly installed I took it out and threw it away.

It was a great idea but a poor execution.

So the pop n lock sucks? That is too bad. Well I guess for now I will do the hose clamp method and wait until I get my shell to secure the tailgate.

I wouldn't say it sucks. It works fine for me, and I actually don't mind the way it looks. I wasn't expecting a component to fall off of it so easily, that's all. I might check it in the future to make sure it isn't working loose.
