    Key Locks for Tailgate

    New to this forum and T5/6’s in general. I noticed a T6 (see pic) with a key lock barrel in the handle (with additional deadlocks). I thought T6’s only had remote locking or am I missing something? Is there an aftermarket in retrofitting locks in tailgates? Any help much appreciated.

    Tailgate bike rack & security/anti-theft bolts

    Recently bought a Thule Wanderway tailgate rack (which is fab!), but like other similar racks is only secured by 2 security torx screws, and I now realise that you can remove the rack without opening the tailgate if you're prepared to lose the two lower clamps, which I imagine are easily...
