Do you know where your tailgate is? If you think it's on your truck, you may want to think again. Tailgate theft is big business on the chop-shop black market, and in the time it takes to read this sentence, some sticky-fingered tailgate grifter could have slipped away with your goods. But there's one way to foil the fraud—the McGard Tailgate Anti-Theft Lock.

If you regularly use—and want to keep—your tailgate, the McGard Tailgate Anti-Theft Lock is for you. The ingenious design not only locks your gate to your truck, but it never gets in the way of regular use.

Installing directly to the right hinge cup of your tailgate, the McGard Tailgate Anti-Theft Lock goes on quick and easy, with no truck or tailgate modifications needed. It's made from strong, lightweight stainless steel and polycarbonate construction, so it's tougher than the crooks.

I like the lock, it does what I expected. I wish the directions were a little clearer. On my truck I don't get to us the plastic to keep the band from scratching the paint. Not happy about that..

It was simple to install and took about 5 minutes. Since I installed it, the tailgate has been stolen. So far it is working.

A touch pricey for what you get, but it will inconvenience the quick theft and therefore likely is effective.

I use my truck for everyday activities and I have had an attempted tail gate robbery. Now I have piece of mind knowing I'm well protected when leaving my truck unattended. I've have bought one of these for every truck I've owned and will continue to install one every time I change trucks. Thank you mcgard.
