Automatic Tailgate Lock For Pickups
You can turn your pickup bed into a giant, power-locking trunk with this new tailgate lock kit.

The kit wires to the pickup's existing power door locks and automatically locks every time you lock your doors. A remote opener is available that lets you lock and unlock the tailgate independently.

The kit installs in less than one hour and is virtually invisible. To install it, the pickup's tailgate handle is first removed. Then, the PowerGate actuator is bolted to the handle. Together they are installed back in the tailgate and connected to the opening mechanism. The wiring runs out the bottom of the tailgate and under the bed to connect to the pickup's door locks. A receiver is also installed inside the tailgate.

The kit includes push-pull actuators for secure locking, a stainless steel backing plate and bolt, and a nylon guide block to prevent corrosion between metals.

"When used with a tonneau cover or topper it protects your cargo," says Mike Buca. "The solenoid in the kit is similar to the solenoids found inside the factory power door locks on cars."

Sells for $89.95 plus S&H.
