Product Info
Features:
  • Protect your valuable cargo from the fast hands of parking lot bandits with Pace Edwards' PowerGate Tailgate Lock
  • Adds a tough dead bolt to your tailgate that locks and unlocks automatically with your power door locks
  • Engage or disengage your PowerGate with the push of a button—your keyless entry remote controls it
  • A toggle switch is available for trucks not equipped with power door locks
  • The PowerGate works seamlessly with any Pace Edwards tonneau cover or other covers
  • The backing plate and slide bolt on your PowerGate are wrought from stainless steel, and the guide block is crafted from sturdy nylon
  • Your PowerGate installs in an hour or less and requires no drilling
  • Comes with the necessary "plug-and-go" wiring harness to link your PowerGate tailgate lock to your pickup's electrical system
  • Built with pride in the USA
  • Pace Edwards covers your PowerGate Tailgate Lock with a 3-year warranty
Description:

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.

Notes:
  • If your vehicle does not have power door locks, you can still use the PowerGate. In place of the power door locks, the manual toggle switch kit gives you control over the locking mechanism.

Solid and works great.

I chose the Pace Edwards after looking at the competition. This was by far the best choice. It is solid and once activated it locks tight. Your not going to open the tailgate without a cutoff saw. Yet it's so simple it should last a lifetime. They call it plug and play and it basically is but you do have to run wiring from the rear to the front and that is probably the hardest part. Absolutely a great purchase and now the stuff under the tonneau is safe.

Pace Edwards LK350 Powergate Tailgate Lock

Great product. Installation was not difficult. The relays fit nicely in the fuse box located on driver side fender well. Splicing into power lock system was a challenge. The instructions identified the correct wires. I recommend taking the right door panel off, find the 2 wires, follow them into the cab, and make your splice inside the cab. The lock works great with my key fob.

Love my automatis tailgate lock!

Seriously, if your thinking about locking your tailgate, why would you want to carry around another key? This electronic lock is the bomb!

Lock solenoid does thejob!

Very easy to install, well built/Good quality, works perfectly. I installed this with the Diamondback bed cover to be able to lock up bed. Now I have a 6 ft waterproof, lockable trunk.

Not able to at this time.

I am in the middle of a complete restoration project of my truck. It will be a while before I can install this power tail gate lock. So all I can say now is i did receive it quickly, box does have some weight to it ( i am looking for a superior product built well ). Will let my opinion be known at a later date once installed.

Tailgate installation

I was a little apprehensive trying to install this item myself but I did and it wasn't as hard as I thought the only issue was the pin on the lock, only because I had to install it on the drivers side of the tailgate and the pin would not stay. It would lock but when I opened it the latch would stay on and it does not come with a opposite side latch so I had to make one. Also while installing the fuse blew , I replaced But besides that it's working like a charm now and I'm thrilled with it !

I was able to force open the tailgate when it was locked. By modifying the factory mechanism with notches where the tailgate lock contacted it the tailgate is now secure.

Don't follow the directions

The instructions are vague and nondescript. If you call for assistance, they are lost too. It has unnecessary parts. If you look up how to install on YouTube, P.E. doesn't have a video. BUT, if you follow other videos, it's fairly easy to install, and you'll ask yourself why every truck doesn't have it. It's awesome!

Wireing

The only problem encountered was the Wireing instruction indicated the wrong set of wires, we had to trace outtheproper connections. Other than that I found everything else was great.

Works as designed

Works good, rather simple install. The only issue would be that it uses an aftermarket style actuator which is fine but if it should fail in the locked position, it could be a rather difficult process to get the tailgate unlocked. Otherwise easy to install bracket and the wire harness is nicely designed.

Never again

Should have paid attention to reviews. Instructions are worthless. Support knows how to read their instructions. No more. I can only hope that product design and quality are better. Auto anything sent you tube video for easy install. Video was for another manufacturer. Should have bought theirs. No pace Edwards products for me

Works well - Fairly Difficult Install

Install instructions for this are not great. No pictures included. The text is not easy to follow step by step instructions. Independent youtube video combined with instructions made it work out though. It could have been much easier with a little effort from manufacturer. Going through firewall was a pain. After install, works really well though. No complaints regarding day to day function.

Sevy from ct.

All the installation was pretty easy . The thing I would change is the wire pickup would be much easier if you went under the driver side sill plate.i. Soldered the connections for a more solid pickup .

Bad Instructions

Great product just very poor instructions. The location and wire colors for the trigger leads in the instructions are wrong. I ended up at a Pace Edwards dealer to make this product function properly. Cost me money that I should not have had to pay out. The tech support is worthless, they only repeated what was on the instruction sheet.

2014 F250 w/ Camera Installation

At first inspection the lock appeared to be flimsy - fabricated from sheet metal with only 2 screws for attachment. The mechanical installation was relatively easy. During manual testing of the lock it seems it might flex during strong manipulation of the latch and allow the tailgate to open. The wiring instructions are terrible and after 1 hour of searching I gave up trying to find the correct wires until I have more time to investigate.

Terrible install, Instructions were innacurate and vague

The installation took the dealership 8 hours and it listed major components like the vehicle body control module to be in completely different locations and all of the wire colors that would have been useful for installation were different from the vehicle. The part was listed as compatible with a current model year vehicle but was obviously a carry over that was never checked from an older model. It works now but was a painful process to get it installed and I would not recommend to a friend.

Everything was easy except finding the power source.

The first two wire colors mentioned in the instructions were found but did not provide the required power. So, I'm probing every wire I can get to with no luck so far.

Works like factory...

Nice little addition. Came with plenty of wire, instructions could've been more detailed but all in all, wasn't hard. My only concern is possibly having to add a brace under the lock mechanism for stability. It rattles a bit when closing the tailgate.

good deal but bad instructions

It works real well after you figure the wiring out.My truck also has a tailgate step so I found it easier to remove the handle assembly to install unit.I found out through another review that its best to remove the E-brake unit because the wires are behind it. It sure beats having to lock tailgate with the key.

Great product..car manufacturer kills it

I would highly recommend calling pace Edwards support before beginning to try to tap into the lock and unlock wires. Installation would have been much easier knowing the correct wires to tap first. Other than that the only difficult part was running the wires through the firewall. As far the product.. It would work awesome if my truck didn't have a dinky plastic handle. The plastic allows you to work one side of the tailgate open. My only recommendation is that it locked both sides of the handle

Great product-lousy installation instructions

The power lock works great but the installation instructions are complete crap. It may be better for other makes or other years but for my 2013 Silverado, the wiring connection instructions were wrong. The wire colors in the instructions are not the same as on the truck. But after you figure out which wires you need to patch into, it isn't so bad. I posted a photo of the wires that I needed to patch into on my truck.
