    My 2015 DCLB Taco tailgate handle has a backup cam but not a lock. I plan to get a tonneau cover but without a locking tailgate my bed will not be secure.

    Does anyone know if they sell replacement locking handles with a cam?? … or is it not that simple?

    Thanks for your input!!

    The same shit everyone else has.
    The power Pop and Lock is another great option.

    Be careful with the pop n lock...it's delicate. Cheap plastic that breaks internally over time, if you're not careful. Mine lasted 2 years, then broke.

    I've been looking at this option, but haven't found any installation videos for it on a Taco. How tough was it to install? Consider that I am an idiot when it comes to wiring anything.

    That LK 410 looks pretty good.
    I’ll look it up when I’m getting ready to make a purchase. Without a key option it seems that any issues would result in being locked out.

    Pretty easy. The instructions were great they even tell you what wires to tap into on passenger side. The two connectors are the power lock wires . Ialso added a fail safe feature just in case the motor for some reason quites on me I tied a nylon string to the arm that unlocks the handle and laid it in the tailgate and left the end near the drain hole so I could take a fish wire and grab it and release it manually 4B50E587-5668-4079-B704-F8D943C0CE29.jpg

    Look up the "paracord mod" as it relates to the tailgate lock. It's on here somewhere. Basically it's a bypass so if you're locked out, you fish the cord out and give it a yank and it unlocks the gate
