Truck accessories: Pop & Lock LLC, a provider of tailgate security products, announced the release of their newest Power Tailgate Lock for the Chevrolet Silverado/ GMC Sierra 1500. This new product provides a secure remote locking option to the factory tailgate lock.

Designed to fit the current platform for the Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 1500 (2014), the new PL8140 is designed to work with the factory manual tailgate lock and uses your existing key fob to lock the tailgate when you lock your passenger doors.

“We are excited about this new product because it offers the convenience of using the factory remote or door switch to lock and unlock the tailgate. The power lock is designed to work in tandem with the OEM manual tailgate lock giving customers the luxury of using their truck key or keyless entry system”, says Jason Lindsley, Production Supervisor for 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.
