Why No locking tailgate?

Why does Honda not offer a locking tailgate option? Han a hard tonneau cover for My 2012 Ridgeline & Self installed lock from Pop And Lock. The combination makes my bed a secured storage space. If Honda does not want to offer a locking tailgate they should at least work with outside vendors to create it as a dealer installed option.

Would to get a 2017 Ridgeline but not without a locking tailgate. Honda hope your listening!!

Since the truck will have a toneau cover from the factory or a full cap available aftermarket, it is surprising that it does not lock.

Re: Why No locking tailgate?

We've been asking Honda to listen on that one since day one. And by the looks of it, the Gen 2 doesn't have it either.

Something so obvious and so careless of Honda.

There's other trucks with locking tailgate. Buy one of them.

Honda deems it a useless accessory.

I asked HondaPro Jason after watching one of his RL2 videos in YouTube, and he said the gate does have a lock.. Obviously I have no way to confirm this.

I doubt it does and it would need to be something with remote. We have not herd any mention of tailgate lock.
Now the trunk locks as it always has but 1 video I think with Lauren Fix says it does something new for this year not sure. But locking tailgate would be wonderful.

Perhaps it's actuated via the power locking system but there is no key lock.

Honda Canada Specs list a tailgate lock on the lowest trim level of the cumulative specs sheet.

Re: Why No locking tailgate?

Joe said the tailgate is essentially a carry over from Gen 1, the US spec sheet lists the same thing Power door and Tailgate Locks, I posted that in another thread and Joe said it does not lock.
