ford tailgate latch handle

I searched F150 tailgate latches and your how to video came up. Very informative and a link to the exact part I needed for my truck. I bought the latch and it went on just as your video showed it. works great, I'm very pleased.
Great Product

Dang that was rasy
February 17, 2019
My tailgate latch broke and without it I was at a loss , not having the use of the tailgate was worst . But to my rescue came 1 A auto and the great selection of parts and accessories and don’t forget the helpful videos , it made the repair a breeze. Thanks for all you folks do .
Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
Does it come with the plastic clips to attach the metal opening rods?
February 20, 2018
Anthony, No it does not come with rod end clips--they are no part of the handle. The quality of the handle is very good, though--I think better than the original--made of steel plate, not cast white-metal. Tom
February 20, 2018
No, the handle is just that, you need to order the attaching part to connect with the rods. I do not know if you can purchase them as a bundled set. I also cannot recall the part name. Search under tailgate parts, at least that is what I did when I searched for my '96' Ranger tailgate repair. Sorry I can't help very much. Note, check your vehicle make/ model, it might use a different or combined part. Check with your local dealer to I identify the part you need,. Have a good day....Joe
