Why steal tailgates?
Thieves learned long ago that tailgates are easy to sell. A trucks tailgate is often the first thing to be damaged either in an accident or through everyday use. When this happens, it is easy to find a matching gate, without damage, on someone else's truck. To buy a new tailgate through a dealer, the cost can easily add up to $1000 or more after painting, so if someone finds they can buy a nice used one for $200, the incentive is there to not ask many questions. Remember, even if you have a locking handle on your gate, it must be locked to prevent someone from stealing your tailgate. If your not sure if your handle will always be locked, install a Gate Keeper™ as an added level of security to ensure you won't be a victim of this expensive crime.
The most common place to lose a tailgate? Shopping malls, grocery stores and home improvement store parking lots!
The Gate Keeper™ bolts onto your truck and covers the pivot point so the tailgate cannot be removed without proper tools.
Notice: The Gate Keeper™ is NOT a lock and will not protect valuables left in the bed of the truck. The Gate Keeper™ is strictly a theft deterrent to help protect your tailgate from theft. We makes no warranties, written or implied, that the Gate Keeper™ will protect your vehicle or your personal property from theft or vandalism.
