    I’ve seen the hose clamp clip, good idea. What about locking the gate in the closed position...

    Pop and lock. They are hit or miss. Some guys love em, others think they are crap quality especially with the plastic internal parts.

    I'm one of the ones who think they are crap quality....cheap-a$$ plastic broke (internal) causing it to pull away from the gate every time I opened it. Went back to stock, since I now have a topper that locks.

    +1 for Pop & Lock. I've run their powered version (PL8521) for years (locked/unlocked multiple times/day) with zero problems.

    I just wish they made one that was of all metal construction. The plastic parts in the Pop n Lock don't seem to last some times. Like some said, It's hit or miss.
