Green Bay, WI – October 16, 2017 - - - Pop & Lock LLC, released the 2017-2018 Honda Ridgeline power tailgate lock this past summer and is now ready to launch a compatible manual locking handle option.

In 2017, Honda released the new Ridgeline platform with only a small locking compartment featured in the truck bed. With no locking tailgate, consumer vehicles were left vulnerable to theft. Pop & Lock received numerous requests from the Ridgeline community looking for a locking solution to protect their tonneau covers and valued possessions stored inside the truck bed. Pop & Lock quickly released the PL8600 power tailgate lock which integrates into the factory automatic door locking system and utilizes the OE key fob for convenience. Consumers can now lock their tailgate at the push of a button.
Additionally, consumers expressed their preference for a manual locking option that is quick to install and requires no need for wiring. With much anticipation, Pop & Lock will be releasing the new PL6200 manual tailgate lock for the 2017/2018 Honda Ridgeline at SEMA this fall. The PL6200 is a full handle replacement option containing a manual key lock. This handle which will be offered only in black, is made of paintable plastic that end users can color match to his/her truck. The new tailgates locks for the Honda Ridgeline will be offered in 2 configurations – one as a standalone handle (PL6200) or two, as a combo pack with the power feature (PL8675). The manual and power tailgate locks will be available for demonstration at SEMA in the Pop & Lock booth #33149 in the Upper South Hall. Both models will also be featured in the New Product Showcase.
