if you slam your tailgate shut, it shouldn't open unless you pull on the handle...right?

My tailgate handle snapped off, so now, i have to use a flat head screwdriver to open the tailgate. the handle was plastic and one side snapped off.

yeah thats right ^ but i think he means lock it, like your door where it can't be opened to allow access to the bed if you have a shell or tonneau cover

I've been looking into this one
http://www.pace-edwards.com/Tailgate-Locks

I found another cheaper option that worked like the door locks disconnecting the latch but can't find the link now

Pace Edwards makes awesome stuff, they also are made in my hometown, so I am definately saying they are worth the money, even if they are spendy. They make a damn good product
