Designed to fit the current platform for the Toyota Tacoma (2005 – 2014), these new manual and power tailgate products will provide a secure locking option to the factory tailgate. The new PL5400 and PL8540 are designed with BOLT® codeable lock technology, which allows the tailgate lock to be coded to the factory ignition key. The Smart Lock Combo kits (PL8450/PL8550) contain both a manual and power lock that work in tandem to provide security and convenience. The full handle replacements (PL5400/PL5500) can also be painted to an OEM standard color. “The Smart Lock Combo Kits give our customers the security of a key, but peace of mind knowing their tailgate is locked along with their passenger doors when using the vehicle’s key remote”, says Jeff Pierquet, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for VSI, LLC, the parent company of Pop & Lock.
Pop & Lock was purchased in 2011 by VSI, LLC and relocated to Green Bay, WI. VSI is the largest producer of automotive grade locksets for the North American Heavy Truck Market.
