Billet Tailgate Latch Kit for 59-66 Trucks


These billet latches allow you to eliminate your old clangy chains. No more scratching your paint job or beautiful patina.

These utilize the original chain mounting points both on the tailgate and on the bed end cap. You will need to re-tap the bed hole to 1/2-13 threads and drill the hole on the tailgate tab out to 1/2”. That’s it! Then bolt these bad boys on for a stylish look.

The kit comes with some trick stainless hardware which is what helps make this a clean install. The push-button pins are stainless as are the 1/2-13 receptacles. The billet aluminum latches swing out of the way on a 316 stainless steel shoulder bolt with a pre-installed threaded insert. Also included are two tailgate stops “Flippers” that can be installed on the bottom edge of your tailgate with minimal cutting and drilling. When installed correctly you won’t even be able to see them. The stops are laser cut from 1/2” thick steel and come pre-drilled and tapped and also come with the necessary stainless hardware and instructions.

Available in raw billet aluminum for now (no measurable machining marks) basically they are smooth but look really cool. Sold as a matching pair.
