OK, everyone.

I'm wanting to install a tailgate lock on my rig.
I'm researching the PL8110 Pop & Lock Power Tailgate Lock

However, as I look at my handle, I can plainly see the two "bars" that open either side of the tailgate.

I haven't pulled the handle assembly out yet to see how it functions. But just by looking at this, even with the lock assembly installed, anyone can just take a nice pair of long-nose pliers and pull either "bar" and open the tailgate. You can clearly see the mechanism from the outside of the tailgate.

Can anyone confirm?

If I order the following part, I will make a simple rectangular bracket that mounts on the front side so not allow a thief to access the tailgate with pliers or screwdriver.
