2011 Chevrolet Colorado

I installed the tailgate lock within 5 minutes, you provided very good and easy to follow instructions. Great product and supper fast shipment.


It looks excelent but I have not installed it yet since my truck is on the paint shop. I'm replacing the one without key for this one

2008 GMC Canyon

Very happy with my purchase. Received multiple emails notifying me that my purchase was received and also shipped which also provided tracking info. Received my replacement locking tailgate handle in two days and it only took five minutes to install. Looks factory and looks and works great. Will definitely order from etrailer again!


The product was so easy to install that after I finished; I thought about installing them for a living...Hahahaha. No, but it was very easy, and works great!

I’ve since sold said vehicle, but the lock worked out well!
Nathaniel - 09/23/2020


Easy to install. Seems to be a secure lock for my tailgate.

Works fine after using it for a year
L.O. - 01/13/2022


Thank you for the opportunity to let you know how pleased I am with my purchase. The website was easy to negotiate and the ordering was easy. The delivery time was great for the times we are going thru. A great match for my truck easy to install. I scoured the web for this part and you were the only place I found it available. The replacement cylinder alone from GMC was $58.00, and you had to configure your ignition key to fit it. I ain't no locksmith.

Im still as pleased as I was when i first installed it. No problems so far, and im really not expecting any.
Leonard - 04/26/2021


Great staff to work with, my order was here very quick. I highly recommend Etrailer.

2007 Chevrolet Colorado

Part fit perfectly, however, mechanism had a LOT more play in it than the original part. I may just mount the lock cylinder that came on the new part on the old part so there is less play in the system. First time I locked the tail gate with the hard cover closed, I had to break into it to get the tail gate down.

I have had to remove the lock assembly and reinforce it with nylon wire ties to keep it working. It is DEFINITELY NOT as good as the OEM !

i understand that the postal service delivered package,but it is not there i am trying to get answer from anyone where it is

Customer Service will reach out to you.

Customer service is above excellent! Product was shipped on the same day I placed the order. Received the tailgate lock and installed it just a few days after ordering. Easy installation; quality product.

2005 Chevrolet Colorado

Installation was a breeze. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. I would highly recommend this product as a replacement for the original tailgate lock with handle at a fraction of the cost quoted by the dealership.

2011 Chevrolet Colorado

I always approach items such as this latch replacement with a bit of concern but this was as advertised. Easy to install and it works perfectly. Anyone wanting to add a locking latch, this item is perfect.

I have no automotive skills at all and I installed this in about 10 minutes, and it works!


As advertised, this was a direct bolt in replacement. It took me a total of 10 mins to replace the broken handle/lock. The dealer fix this once before (about 2 years ago and it cost me $110. I would say you handle was a better value.

2007 Chevrolet Colorado

Product shipped in a very timely fashion, met expectations, good communication. Easy installation in less that 15 minutes, good instructions. Very happy all around with this purchase!

2012 Chevrolet Colorado

Product installed exactly as advertised no problems at all. If your truck does not have a locking tail gate latch this is the product for you!!


Tail Gate lock is working good after 1 year.

Still working perfectly.
Mike S - 06/04/2020


Excellent product and fast shipping much better than the OEM handle...

2006 Chevrolet Colorado

the pop and lock tailgate was easy to install. thanks for great product.

2011 GMC Canyon

I read other reviews that said things were loose and they had problems. So I took the time to tighten some rivets and took the stock rod holders off and put them on this. Haven’t had a problem yet.

2012 GMC Canyon

The Pop & Lock arrived when promised, and was easy to install. Now I can use my tailgate again.

2012 Chevy Colorado

Installed in about 20 minutes . It replaced a non locking handle of a 2012 Chevy Colorado

2006 Chevrolet Colorado

Best service and fastest delivery I've ever had for an online purchase! Someone at etrailer deserves a raise and promotion!!!


Works as intended, has held up great so far. Quality construction and easy installation.

2010 Chevrolet Colorado

It works for what it is, only issue I have is the keys are cheap and instantly broke testing the lock prior to installing it. Other then that it is a good product.

2008 Chevrolet Colorado

Had some initial trouble installing but once I got it seated properly it went in and locked

  • Can a Non-Locking Tailgate Handle Be Installed on a 2007 Chevy Colorado with Locking Handle
    Any tailgate handle and lock that is designed to fit a stock 2007 Chevy Colorado can be used provided that nothing prevents it from being installed. If the tailgate latching mechanism operated by the handle was damaged or modifications to the tailgate were made then a lock and handle such as # PAL1700 may not fit. I have included a link to the tailgate locks we carry for the 2007.

  • tail gate lock
    For your 2011 Chevrolet Colorado, I recommend the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock with Handle # PAL1700. This is a manual tailgate lock that will replace your OEM handle. I have attached a review video of this product for you.

  • Does the Pop and Lock Tailgate Lock # PAL1700 Replace the Whole Lock Assembly
    The Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PAL1700 that you referenced replaces the entire tailgate latch and lock. What you see in the pictures is what you will install into the tailgate of your vehicle.

  • Can Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock with Handle # PAL1700 Be Painted to Match Color of Truck
    The Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock with Handle, # PAL1700, has a handle which is made of ABS plastic. ABS plastic can be painted so I don't see any reason that you couldn't paint the handle to match the color of your 2012 Chevrolet Colorado. Since we have not personally tested it, I do recommend contacting your local body shop to see if they use a special process or have specific instructions to follow to ensure that you are satisfied with the final product.

  • What Do I Do If My Pop & Lock Tailgate Lock # PAL1700 Wont Unlock?
    I have an answer for you. Unfortunately, if the locking mechanism in the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock with Handle - Manual - Black # PAL1700 will not open, the only way is to break into the tailgate in order to remove the lock. We have had issues like this in the past, and Pop and Lock informed us that most local locksmiths can assist you with this particular issue. I recommend reaching out to a local locksmith near you in order to break out the lock.

  • Replacement Pop and Lock Tailgate Lock for a 2004 GMC Sierra
    All the Pop and Lock assemblies we sell for your 2004 GMC Sierra utilize the factory tail gate handle, that may be why the ones you see do not look like what you have. Since the latch handle and everything appears factory like the # PAL1700 I am going to assume you need the power model available for your vehicle. For that you would want the part # PAL8110. You will still need a factory handle since yours is damaged and this does not come with one. You might try a junk yard or an online...

  • Tailgate Locks for a 2004 GMC Canyon
    We do have some tailgate lock options for your 2004 GMC Canyon. But Replacement BOLT Lock Cylinder # BL709231 will not work with the 2004 GMC Canyon. It isn't necessarily because of the lock or truck but because it does not accept the 2004 Canyon key. We do have Pop & Lock tailgate locks # PAL1700 and # PAL1700C which are manual locks. Or you could use lock # PAL8160 which will work with power door locks to lock and unlock the tailgate.

  • Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Lock For a 2011 GMC Canyon SLE
    I verified with Pop and Lock and the tail gate lock # PAL1700C is a fit for a 2011 GMC Canyon. We have not yet had the opportunity to install the lock on a vehicle so I do not have an installation video I can link you to. Installation is not difficult. There are only a few steps from beginning to end as you can see in the image I have linked.

  • Tailgate Lock Recommendation for a 2005 Dodge Dakota Crew Cab
    I have a solution for you, but the part # PAL1700 that you referenced will not fit a 2005 Dodge Dakota. For a similar tailgate lock you would want the part # PAL9900 which has been confirmed as a fit for your truck and would work well. Or if you wanted something that wires to your vehicle power locks you would want the part # PAL8100. This will unlock and lock with the power locks of your truck.
