    That is pretty nice. I almost feel bad using a water pump clamp. I guess it is handy if you don't keep your tailgate locked. Keeps the honest people, honest.

    How does this work, I just lock my tailgate....

    EDIT: Just watched a video on it, cool concept but for $25 I can just lock my tailgate or buy a hose clamp.

    It clamps around the hinge stopping it from being able to be pulled off. Locking makes sense if you hardly ever need to open/close the tailgate, other wise you’d have to unlock it every time. Something like this is a “set it and forget it” solution. It’s not meant to keep people out of the bed, just from having your tailgate stolen.

    That is pretty slick. Also set it and forget it:
