After almost a year of waiting for somebody to come up with the tailgate lock with disconnect, I finally realized it, most likely won't happen. I guess the mechanism of the lock is too complicated for that. Anyway, I still wanted to have a tailgate lock, preferably electric. As far as I know, after death of Basic Koncepts there are only 2 choices left: Dynolock and ChrisM's DIY lock described in this thread. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to gather enough information about Dynolock to be totally confident in its construction, while Chris provided detailed explanations with pictures, containing enough information to feel confident. Plus, you can't argue with the price advantage. So, I decided to go ahead with Chris's lock. I am very pleased with the results and don't understand why more people don't go the same route. In order to make it a bit more understandable, I took some more pictures to supplement the ones above. I tried to emulate Chris's device as close as I could, but, possibly, due to some misunderstanding of his description and/or pictures, there may be some differences. The first 3 pictures show just the lock mechanism without the actuator installed. First picture shows it in unlock position; Second in locked. Third is in locked position while I am pulling on the tailgate handle to demonstrate how it works. The last two are the final assembly in locked and than unlocked positions.
