Well, it does what it's supposed to do...thats about it. It's actually a very cheaply made product...seems all it consists of is a band clamp covered in plastic that uses a special bit instead of a flathead screwdriver to tighten. If I would have known this before I would have just spend the $1.50 on a band clamp, doubt someone who is wanting to steal my tailgate is carrying a screwdriver on them.

Installation took all of 5 minutes after a quick read of the instructions. I did not need to trim the strap on my truck.
