Pop Lock Tailgate Security

I installed one of these Pop & Lock units last night and promptly removed it.
Horrible fit, key jambs, tumbler contacts parts of handle and the mechanism just plain sucks.

Returning it for refund today.

I read others reviews of this thing and even though most said it was kinda crappy, I tried it anyway.
Live and learn.

I have the power electric one, it's great. Never has given me any problems and works off the factory keyless so I don't have to deal with another key. You should have bought that one.

The power lock is good, had one on my ranger. It is loud, but it works well.

I've had no problems whatsoever with my electric Pop N Lock PL8200. It's been in use for about 4 years.

I got a Pace and Edwards powergate tailgate lock from autoanything.com and I gotta say it really sucks. It cost me about 100 bucks and it was the biggest waste of money. When I went to install it, it did not fit right I had to bend and cut it to make it fit. It has barely any power and does not work half the time. Then on top of that i tried to return it and autoanything would not return it because I had it for over a month........ B.S.

It should assuming that your A/M lock solenoids shift from lock to unlock by simply reversing polarity. Most do.
