I had trouble with it locking, but it unlocked just fine. I first tried white lithium grease on the mechanism and when that didn't work, I cleaned it all up and tried an all-purpose grease. The actuator just didn't have enough throw to lock my tailgate. I ended up putting two small zip ties around the protrusion that pushes the locking mechanism, and the extra ~1/8" of bulk on the protrusion has been enough to make it work.
It's been working like a champ for a couple weeks, but I am considering checking in with Pop & Lock to see if they would send me another actuator. The benefit of the Pop & Lock is that they crafted the bracket for a nice install. I think I found the exact actuator they put in their bracket some obscure place online for about $12, but I haven't checked back on it since mine is working well for now. If it quits working and I can't get Pop & Lock to send me a new actuator, I can go the old-school route with the generic actuator and the universal mount that older threads showed for about $10-15.
Mine stopped locking and after a quick call to pop lock yesterday they are sending me a new one free of charge!
