This is a easy and good way to prevent this. my dad had his stolen off his dodge and now he did this and showed me so i did it to mine. Not everyone carries a flathead or phillips on them.

Very cool idea and definitely cheaper than a new tailgate!

Had my taillights and tailgate stolen when I was working once... came back from a nightshift and man was I pissed! I went out and bought an actual tailgate lock, it was a McGard and while the band clamp is a cheap alternative, I wanted something to protect against the guy who DOES carry a flathead, such as the one that nabbed my taillights too.

I have a lock on mine, but nothing wrong with a little extra security. Thanks for the tip.

i would do anything to keep my tailgate closed, not because of losing the tailgate
i worried more about the tail lights
it seems some people with light fingers don't unplug the connectors, they cut the wires in front of the connectors, so they have everything that they need for Mods
