    It took about 25 mins to install...Most of that was time spent removing and replacing all the Torx screws in the taligate.
    It was straight forward and easy to install. It has a metal body and feels fairly secure. I'd say anything that makes your truck a harder target for random scumbags with no respect is a good call.

    If they REALLY want your stuff...they'll get in there. If they just want to take something...They'll pick an easier car.

    Use a quality dry lube at every oil change, work it in and you'll have no problems.

    Do a search on TW, you will find a lot on it. Take advantage of the group buy and don't wait, this is a good deal. I paid $20 more.

    ^^^For sure, I think I paid $60 CDN at the stealership for mine. The rest of the town was sold out though and I was going on Vacation.

    I'm hoping my second pop n lock works better than my first because its a great mod. The GB is an excellent price :thumbsup: DGerm worked it :woot:

    Now mine stopped working after its first winter even using graphite in the lock cylinder pretty often. Vermont uses a ton of road salt though. It wasn't so much the inside of the lock as the backside mechanism. The new lock has white lith grease as you can see in the pic. My old one had none but to grease means taking off the panel which I now will make sure to check. Here are pics 2 yr old lock vs brand new mechansim.

    I've only had mine for about two months and it's getting seedy already.Last week I hand washed my truck for the first time this season and I noticed that the powdercoat was bubbling and the lock mechanism was white and powdery.I went back to where I got it and they will replace it no questions asked but I'd sure like to find a way of preventing the same problem.....Like xedge,we use a ton of salt in the winter and it sure makes aluminum unhappy.:(

    Thanks for the photos and info. I just put mine in a couple of weeks ago. I live in NJ. We don't get as much snow as you do but when we do they salt like crazy. I always worried I'm going to get chips in my paint when I pass a spreader. Well now I know to lube the lock with white lith. Hope a couple of times a year will be good. It shouldn't take more then 15 or 20 mins with a drill and torx bit. Thanks again. Alway learn something when I hit TW.

    Heres mine after a couple of months of Atlantic Canadian winter.The place where I bought it says they have never seen one go like it......We'll see how the replacement holds up.
