    I'm thinking of installing a power tailgate lock in my 2017 Tundra.

    Whenever I google that, the main thing that comes back is the Pop & Lock for like $80-90.
    In the reviews, people indicate that it works well but also that it makes a fairly loud clunk when it operates.

    The other thing that comes up is the 00016-34092 for $150. Sparks Toyota sells that one, I have also seen it on eBay and so on.

    Two things about that one: 1) In all the ads I've seen for that one they only ever show a picture of a key (not the power lock), and 2) I never see any discussion or reviews by anyone who has bought one.

    (it's kind of weird)

    I actually don't mind buying the second one for $150 vs the Pop & Lock, if it is quieter.

    So what's the deal, does anyone know the difference? Is one quieter than the other? Is the second one a Toyota part? Are they both the same lock, just being sold by different vendors?

    Here are the instructions for the Toyota power lock. I just installed a P&L and the Toyota lock looks identical but is twice the price.

    I don't think it is really loud but I followed the advice of others and greased the heck out of all the moving parts.

    I installed the pop n lock as well. I don’t get all the fuss about how“loud” it is. Some act like it’s a constant noise while driving. Either way, I’m very happy with it and if I can install it, anyone can!

    I kinda like the clunk when locking all of the doors as an acknowledgement that everything is locked...yes, my truck's lights flash, but the clunk doesn't bother me. It only does this while it locks or unlocks, not consistently as you drive. I also used Dynamat sound deadening mat around it to reduce the sound somewhat. The unit in the Toyota document does look just like the Pop-n-Lock unit that I installed.

    Awesome, that’s what I wanted to hear, so the two are likely to be essentially the same. So I’ll just go ahead and order the pop & lock then, should be just what the doctor ordered.

    As far as limiting the sound goes, I wonder if anyone has experimented with using a resistor, or maybe a resistor and a capacitor to limit the speed at which the solenoid pulls? I feel like with the right network on it one could slow that down just a wee bit, which would make it quieter. I might play around with that.

    Or maybe it’s possible to rig a bumper stop or a viscous coupling to it? I’m wondering if someone has already experimented with these things (so I don’t go reinventing the wheel :))

    I put dynamat inside the tailgate and it helps a lot.

    It’s really not that loud. You know its working. I don’t think you want to dampen it. It may cause it to not always engage properly.

    This is exactly what I did. Some on the back of the access panel and some on the mounting surface. Also my tailgate is line-Xed im sure that helps. I think I sounds solid.

    Don't overthink a simple device with a simple installation, it is not loud at all, just grease everything really good so things move easily. After you install it try it out and if you feel it is to loud start making changes.

    The second one is not a Toyota part. I'm actually not sure who manufacturers that one. Any time you see a part number beginning with 00016 it means that it is a SET or GST part. It's aftermarket stuff that those regions have created a part number for.

    I installed the Pop & Lock. It works great. I decided to try some sound deadening. Dynamat seemed like overkill (price-wise). Googling around pointed me to this stuff which turns out works great. You buy it at Home Depot, it costs about $17 for a 25’ roll x 6” (weirdly it seems to cost more online than at Home Depot)

    It’s easy to install because it doesn’t really grab until you press it on (but then it REALLY grabs, i.e you are not getting it off!). It’s rubbery and it sticks well, so that keeps the tailgate from resonating. It just has a solid thunk instead.
