    I've only ever used the trial & error method……
    Back the retaining screws off just enough so they hold the tailgate shut.
    Close the tailgate & see if it's sitting correctly - seals tight.
    If not take a hammer & GENTLY, with the aid of a wooden block, tap the keeper in just a touch.
    Close the tailgate again & see if there's any improvement…..
    Once you're happy with it tighten it up…..
    Cheers,
    Mark
