2005 - 2015 Toyota Tacoma PL8521 Support Bracket - Price $17.00 USD Free S&H
Pop & Lock makes the PL8521, which is a great power tail-gate lock, but it mounts with only a single bolt, which puts extra strain on that single bolt every time you open and close the tailgate.
TacomaTruckParts came up with a simple bracket that attaches to the PL8521, distributing the weight of the power lock onto two bolts. This reinforcement bracket adds rigidity and strength to the PL8521 power lock assembly; This reduces noise, vibration, and metal-fatigue when operating the power lock or when opening & closing the tailgate. It is a simple bolt-on bracket which takes about 15 minutes for installation.
These are made of laser-cut 16 gauge CR steel and weigh just 6.4 oz. ( 182 g.). These are Powder Coated black matte.
Designed to fit all PL8521 power tailgate locks on all Toyota Tacoma models 2005 - 2015, with and without the back-up camera.
Included: One support bracket for the Pop & Lock PL8521 and an installation guide.
*The bracket in the photos was painted "CAT" yellow for clarity - These brackets are powder coated Black.
The PL8521 power tailgate lock is not included, and is shown for reference only. Made in the USA
