Horrible product. Gate does not close properly once installed. Gate does not open all the way to fall flat once installed. Gate is loose as the bolts do not tighten enough to pich the arms so it binds, rubs and is completely garbage of a product. And of course, you have to pay to ship it back (not light so costly shipping for the return). Was really bummed as this would be a great thing to have, but trust me, you do not want to buy this as it is a complete waste of money, time and energy. 2016 Toyota Tundra

After installing and trying it out it would not release so I could lower my tailgate. I had to remove the tailgate bolts so I could lower my tailgate. As long as the lever is locked into place I can use my tailgate, but if I want to use the ratchet capability I know I will have to remove the bolts to lower my tailgate. The very flimsy lever that is suppose to release the latch to lower does not always lock into place...so I have to remove the bolts. The little tool they provide does absolutely nothing to try and lock the lever into place, trying to force it only bends the lever and it never releases the ratcheting to lower the tailgate.

5.0Tundra tailgate upgrade
This is the best upgrade from OEM cables. This has help me with so many different loads on the truck and securing it with the tailgate just adds another layer of securing your cargo with straps.
