Product Info
Features:
  • Lock up your rig’s rear end with the Bolt Tailgate Lock
  • Equipped with a smart tumbler that learns and responds to your factory key
  • The perfect companion to tonneau covers, camper shells and other truck bed covers
  • Custom designed to directly replace your non-locking tailgate handle
  • Constructed from rugged ABS that matches your factory trim
  • Your Bolt Tailgate Lock is backed by a limited Lifetime Warranty
Description:

A tonneau cover can keep bandits from seeing your valuables, but it can't stop them from opening your tailgate and peeking inside. If you have anything interesting under your bed cover, don't count on it being there when you get back to your pickup. For serious security, you need the might of the Bolt Tailgate Lock.

Not every pickup comes with a locking tailgate, and most aftermarket locks fit clumsily around the handle. Not so with the Bolt Tailgate Lock. It's fully custom crafted to directly replace your non-locking factory tailgate handle. Mounted directly to your truck, it delivers the ultimate defense without ruining your stock appearance. It's even constructed from matching ABS for true chameleon-esque blending.

Best of all, you don't have to weigh down your pockets with extra keys when you upgrade with the Bolt Tailgate Lock. It's equipped with a smart tumbler that learns the shape of your factory key. Simply slide it in once, and it memorizes its unique pattern. From then on, your Bolt Tailgate Lock responds just to your normal key. And, your new handle is backed by a limited Lifetime Warranty.

Awesome Product

Couldn't be happier. It was easy to install, and the key just went in and programmed itself. Awesome product and it looks like it came from the factory.

Smart key not so smart.

I own 3 different Chevy/ GMC trucks and I used the key for the truck I put this Bolt tailgate lock on and did just like the instructions said to do and I thought I'm going to try my other gym keys and they all work the lock. Other than that it look factory and works good

Easy tailgate lock replacement

This product is awesome! My 2013 GMC Sierra was afflicted with the common tailgate latch failure problem due to corrosion of the lock mechanism. It also did not come with a locking tailgate feature. This product solved both issues for me. Only took 15 minutes to swap out after watching a You Tube video on how to remove and replace the latch & trim. Best way to do it is to remove the tailgate and lay it on a table or work bench to change. You don't have to worry about the latch rods falling down.

Installation of Tailgate Lock

Overall a very good product. The original tailgate lock was not reliable. This fit right into place. The lock function is excellent. One note however. Pay close attention when aligning the lock arm with the rectangular frame that should be positioned so that the lock arm is inside the frame. I though I had done that but that was not the case. Could not open the tailgate...opps, I had to disassemble the lock from the door and reassemble making sure the arm was inside the rectangular frame.

Recent purchaser

Can't beat this deal. Price is best, quality is best, fast shipping. Tired of carrying around all those keys? This unit automatically learns your existing truck key; just put key in and turn until it clicks! The whole installation and key learning takes only 15 minutes. Unit seems to be an OEM, or equivalent part.

Practical

This tailgate lock is essential for pickup truck owners. When used with a quality bed cover, this area becomes the most secure location in the pickup.

Exactly what I wanted

Needed a locking tailgate latch to pair with my BAK cover for security. Install was fast & easy. Appearance is the same as the OEM non-locking latch. I have way too many keys on my keyring, so the ignition key memory is perfect and works as advertised. No hiccups whatsoever. I'm happy

Bolt Tailgate Lock Just Works

The Bolt Tailgate Lock arrived faster than expected. My truck key easily keyed to the lock using the instructions. It then took all of 10 minutes to remove the old latch snd install the new locking tailgate latch. Yay! I have a tailgate that locks and looks just like a factory installed latch. Take time to read the instructions. Highly recommend.

Unbelievably Easy and Miraculous

It was very easy to install though the instructional images were subpar. What was miraculous was the way that the apparatus adapts to set your ignition key as the access key. Buy it, you will not be disappointed.
