    I picked up the Pop N Lock a few months ago, and contrary to some of the post on TW, I haven't had any issues with it (yet). From what I have experienced from it so far, I think it's a good investment; if you can find one, as they ran into a manufacturing shortage for a short time.

    The pl5300, which was for use with the backup camera, had major quality issues initially, and that is what folks are referencing.

    I have heard that folks have gotten replacements and were happy, but I can't speak from 1st hand experience.

    I just ordered one of these. I wanted a manual lock and the visual deterrent of a key cylinder. I hope it works out. Eventually I would like to put power locks on both the tailgate and the camper top, but for now I'm fine with keys.
