Unhappy Tailgate Handle Sizes

My Ranger has the plastic 6 inch handle, but did the Ranger ever come with the smaller 5 1/8 plastic handle as well or were they just metal? The reason I ask is because the Pop & Lock PL2310 I ordered will not fit the plastic handle. As you can see from this photo the cam block interferes with the handle's movement:



I've sent this picture to their tech support and he said there is something definitely not right. Has anybody else run into this?

I appreciate the offer Clinton , but I may end up ordering the smaller metal handle from evilbay and hope that works.

Anyhow, I sent a few more pictures to Pop & Lock and will wait to hear what else they have to say. He did mention he would talk to their engineer about this apparent SNAFU.

Thanks RangerJustin. I saw an earlier post you had for that site, but 25 bucks to ship to Canada is just too cost prohibitive. Anyhow, I have a replacement on the way from evilbay. I'll keep you guys posted.
