Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

I have a new 2019 Ridgeline RTL-E with a tonneau cover that I want to get a lock for so that I can lock it to the tailgate. Am requesting recommendations please

    I have a Bak Flip on my 17 Ridgeline and I have the same issue. My experience it that there is no way to lock the tailgate without redoing the latch.

    With the Honda-supplied tonneau cover, how hard is it to get into the bed with the cover closed and the tailgate locked? It seems that you need to open the tailgate to release the tonneau cover latches from inside the bed. I'm sure that it could be gotten into fairly easily with a crowbar, I'm assuming...

    I just want to understand how secure the bed would be without the addition of a 3rd party locking mechanism.

    EDIT: Oops...I just realized that the tailgate itself doesn't lock! Well that changes things... I guess I will look into the Pop & Lock power lock...
