Pace Edwards PowerGate Customer Reviews
73 Customer Reviews
While tonneau covers prevent thieves from peeking into your truck bed, nothing's stopping them from opening your tailgate and swiping your stuff. Without a dead bolt on your tailgate, your valuables are always vulnerable to sticky fingers. Batten down the hatches of your tonneau-equipped truck with Pace Edwards' PowerGate to safeguard your cargo from bandits.
You never have to remember to lock your PowerGate. It automatically activates when you lock and unlock your power doors. Simply hit the button on your keyless remote, and your entire vehicle is locked down tighter than a Sing Sing cell block. If your rig doesn't have the power package, you can still use the PowerGate with the optional toggle switch.
Your PowerGate is built tough using a stainless steel backing plate and slide bolt with a nylon guide block. It mounts nearly invisible inside your tailgate in an hour or less without any drilling. Backed by a 3-year warranty.

Install took some time, but wasn't difficult. Vague instructions for the lock itself, but easy to figure out. The longest part was running the wire, but the instructions were clear about positive/negative under the hood and color wires under the dash. Hardware great, sturdy lock and wires plenty long. Worked perfect first try. I was concerned about a power lock and install vs simple keyed, but it was way easier than expected and works awesome!

Looks well made and includes plenty of wire for the length of my 4 door 2012 F-150 short box. Works very well but the installation instructions need improving. The instructions left out the need to remove the parking brake assembly to access the necessary wire harness as I was told by a helpful rep at the company. But NOT on 4 doors causing extra labor hours when the simple solution is tapping 2 wires in the drivers rocker panel. This may only work in 4 doors with power locks.

NOTE: The instructions don't mention it but the wires you are looking for are behind the left kick panel near the parking brake pedal. After the install of the unit in the tailgate I had to remove the panel again to put some Velcro between the unit and the tailgate metal as I had a vibration noise when closing the tailgate but it only took 10 more minutes. It is nice knowing that my tailgate is always locked with the doors now without having to double checking it.

Instructions are terrible had to install complete different way to work but worked perfectly. Did not list truck i bought it for. After all is said and done works but i am still a little worried about the way it locked.

Pros: Nice product. Prevents tailgate theft or break-ins to covered bed. Cons: The wire tapping instructions didn't specify which bundle of wires to work with, AND there were THREE blue wires with green stripe and only one actually works! An online guide with color photos would be nice. Tip: cut the quick connects off the wires that need to pass through the firewall, so you can get them through a small hole easier. Then put new ones on inside the cab.

If you buy this product you may as well forget the instructions in the manual and go straight to costumer service because the wiring recomendations are wrong and they can give you and easier instalation method. the first one I bought didn't work but I got another one that works fine even with the AMI chrome tailgate handle, it just needed a little bit of filing in a discrete place. I am happy with the way it functions and the security it gives me but it was a pain in the neck to install

Powergate is awesome! In conjunction with my tonneau cover, it finally gives me a secure cargo bed for my truck. Install was relatively easy to follow with the almost too simple of instructions. The toughest parts of the install were running the wires under the truck and then through the rubber gasket through the firewall. Overall, I am extremely pleased with this!

I have an '09 Tacoma wit a backup camera on the tailgate handle would this product still work ?
Answered by Matthew G — Mar 15, 2012 10:16 AM
I have one installed on a 2008 Ram, so the only information I can offer you is that it installs inside the actual tailgate, behind the access panel. My backup camera is mounted to my license plate, but I don't see how it would interfere unless you have wiring in the tailgate itself. Hope this helps a little.flag Accept Answer
