CARiD’s new range of tailgate locks safeguards truck tailgates from theft and vandalism, while the showcased tailgate steps make loading, off-loading, and climbing up and down the truck simple.

Starting October, CARiD unveiled a new range of truck bed accessories which include safety tailgate steps and locks from trusted names like Westin, Carr, Pop & Lock, Bully, Pilot and Street Scene. Climbing atop a pickup truck is a struggle for many people, and the presence of a tailgate step or ladder makes the process quick and easy.

The new line up of load-bearing tailgate steps and ladders at CARiD is designed both for climbing up onto and down the truck, and for taking loads on and off the truck. The steps are specifically built to eliminate risk of injury as one climbs on and out of the pickup truck. They also provide the support needed to carry loads onto and off the truck and are heavy enough to support cargo weighing up to 500 lbs. They come in different designs. Some like the Universal Mega Step Flat Mount by Carr® feature a single step, while others like the Westin® Truck-Pal Tailgate Ladder have a set of steps that can reach a tailgate height of up to 38 inches.

Both the tailgate steps and ladders are easy to mount onto the truck’s hinges. Some designs, specifically the hitch step, attach at a corner near the bumper and only need to swivel outwards to be used as a step. They fold easily for storage on the inside of the truck, without taking up too much space.

To ensure that truck owners do not lose their tailgates to thieves, CARiD now has a selection of ultra-modern Custom Tailgate Locks from Pop & Lock, Street Scene, Pilot and Bully. They come in a choice of manual and electric, with the latter requiring some amount of wiring to sync with the rest of the vehicle systems. The locks can be installed either at the tailgate hinges or handles, depending on design. For truck owners who want to extend their style statement right to the back of the truck, CARiD offers a variety of custom locks that are designed for specific trucks, down to the trim.
