With one pull, the Rapid Latch allows both sides to be released simultaneously. The Rapid Latch can also be locked with a single padlock (not included) for added security. The Rapid Latch works in conjunction with the Gorilla Lift but it is not required for use.
The tailgate can be locked by installing a padlock (not included) through the striker plate and side bracket on either side.
Note: Item is shown on a trailer, the trailer is NOT included.
Note about removable tailgates: Some tailgates are designed to be easily removable by sliding them off the hinge. If your tailgate is removable, it may be necessary to install a bolt through the trailer frame to prevent tailgate from sliding side to side. If tailgate slides from side to side, it may prevent the Rapid Latch from working properly.
