The Gate Defender™ is a universal tailgate lock designed to fit most late model trucks to help prevent tailgate theft. Similar to design as a padlock, this theft deterrent fits around the tailgate hinge and locks the tailgate to the truck. Once locked into place, the tailgate can easily open and close. As tailgate thefts are on the rise, the Gate Defender™ is a terrific low cost option to help prevent your tailgate from being stolen. Installs easily with no special tools required other than the included key. See application chart and technical notes below for model specific information.
* While the Gate Defender™ is designed to be universal and fit most trucks, there may be certain truck platforms it may not fit due to the difference in tailgate design and mounting hardware.
** Optional included adapter may be needed on smaller truck models to provide a better fit.
