    So I thought that this was a great idea and a good product but a short amount of time has proven one of those assumptions to be wrong. Ever since I put this lock on I have noticed that it doesn't operate as smoothly as the stock one. I have had it on my truck for less then two months and it has gotten progressiy more tough to operate. Half the time the handle doesn't work and I can't get into my truck bed. If you wiggle or try the handle a few time sometimes it locks and unlocks itself. I'm pretty disappointed with this product and am taking it off tonight tried callin them to bitch and see if there is a fix but they r closed today. Anyone else have issues with this piece of crap I thought I heard one or two of you complain a bit about it.

    Seems like a faulty lock. I had mine on now for quite sometime and it works flawlessly. Love the lock and would buy another one in a second

    Installed mine in November and it doesn't work as smoothly as the stock one. It feels like it might not work in the future. Considering removing it before it breaks.

    So this is a mod I want to add to my truck. The problem is I see three "works fine" and two (I'm not happy). Anybody else have experience with the Pop-n-Lock?

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    Mine has been on for a while, and I take mine off-road all time so you'd think something in there wouldn't work right. But, no issues here.
