Prevent Tailgate Thefts

Over the past few weeks, there have been a number of thefts occurring. Tailgates are difficult to secure but there are a few things you can do to make it harder for a criminal to steal this expensive truck part. Below are some tips on how you can help prevent these different types of crimes:

• Always lock and secure tailgates
• Utilize anti-theft tailgate locking devices, which lock the hinge mechanism manually or electronically
• Park with the tailgate as close as possible to an object or structure to prevent the tailgate from opening easily
