    It is actually a great question, people buy two and return one as you only need one for the right hinge.

    No. One order = one lock.

    Tailgate theft on the rise in my area. Even made the news and a detective assigned to investigate. So I just purchased this heavy duty lock.

    And for that one time you forget to lock it, poof it's gone. Then you get to deal with insurance or out of pocket

    I asked the Toyota parts guy near my house, he parts them together at least once a week. It seems the more trucks sold the more tailgates get stolen. Last numbers I saw was around 145k trucks sold a year. Not sure of the stats on the 2016+ style.

    It looks like there has been some rubbing on mine. Just on the one corner. I don't have the truck here to see if it caused any damage, but I never felt it making contact while opening and closing the tailgate.

    Sent a few questions in a PM. The lock is aluminum and the hinge cast steel so the lock would take the ware but this is the first time I have had this show up, so I sent a few questions to see if I can narrow it down a bit to adjust my CNC program a little as needed.

    My neighbor has a 2018 TRD Sport (with a factory tailgate lock) came out of his house last week and his tailgate was gone... Watched the video from his garage camera and watched the crooks drill out the lock tumbler and snatch the gate in about 15 seconds flat... This kind of lock in this thread may have either stopped them from getting the gate all together or at least slowed them down enough they wouldn't spend the time necessary to get it off.

    I will for sure have some kind of secondary lock on my tailgate. Whether it is this lock or some other variant of the same style...

    Looks like a good option though OP thanks for sharing.
