BOLT Locks for Convenience and Security

Are you tired of carrying a bulky ring of keys - for your hitch lock and coupler lock, your pickup cover or trailer door, and all the various padlocks securing your equipment? Tired of fumbling for the right key or having to replace a lost key?


BOLT (Breakthrough One-key Lock Technology) has solved that problem by designing a line of locks that can operate with a key you already have handy - your vehicle ignition key.


When you insert your own key into the cylinder, spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down until they are matched exactly to that key. The first time the key is rotated, the cylinder is uniquely coded to that key. When the key is removed, the cylinder moves into the locked position. When the key is turned again, it will rotate to the unlocked position.

BOLT for Commercial Applications

BOLT is particularly useful in commercial applications. Imagine being able to send a crew without having to sign out multiple keys for a work truck, trailer, hitch pins, and equipment locks. With BOLT, the vehicle key becomes a master key. It opens all those locks and you no longer have the hassle of getting to a work site only to find that you've brought the wrong keys.

Video Transcript for Bolt Truck Toolbox BL7022696 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Bolt Toolbox Latch Retro Fit kit. This one codes to the early model, GM Key. Now, this will work with most Chevrolet and GMC vehicles. What I would recommend is to go to the product page of this part number and at the bottom of the page, it'll have a list of vehicles it works with.Now, this helps you if you're tired of trying to find the correct key to open your truck tool box. This retro fit latch kit for your toolbox has a lock that uses bolt technology and it codes to your vehicle's ignition key. So, with bolt, the key becomes your master key and since this lock uses your vehicle's ignition key, you'll always have the right key with you.

And it's easy to code your key to the lock. All you have to do is insert he ignition key into the bolt cylinder, turn the key once, and the lock is permanently coded to your key.One note I do want to mention that bolt locks permanently code to only one vehicle. They cannot be recoded or re-keyed.the latch itself, this'll replace the factory latch on your truck bed toolbox and it is designed to work on most truck bod toolboxes like the UWS, the DZ, the Tractor Supply, and then many other brands.They do use a heavy-duty lock cylinder which has a security feature. Uses a plate tumbler side bar to prevent picking or bumping of the lock and it does have a stainless steel lock shutter that keeps out dirt and moisture. Also, it will lock automatically when the key is removed.the latch itself is a weatherproof automotive quality stainless steel construction.

You can see it is a paddle-style handle design. Lifts very easily.Now, this kit will includes everything laid out here on the table. The latch handle, the frame, and the lock cylinder. Comes also with a spacer, a lever, and the e clip. Four rivets for installing this into your toolbox and a nice set of detailed instructions on how it installs.But that should do it for the review on the Bolt Toolbox Latch Retro Fit Kit that codes to the early model GM Key..

  • Compatbilility of Bolt Retro-Fit Toolbox Lock with Kobalt Truck Bed Toolbox on 2000 Chevy Pickup
  • The folks at Bolt tell me if their # BL7023547 lock would be compatible with UWS and DeeZee toolboxes, but they were unable to specify fit for a Kobalt toolbox, but if the latches you currently have match the dimensions of the diagram I've provided, the Bolt Retro-Fit toolbox lock would work fine for you. The # BL7023547 is compatible with late model trucks, not your 2000 model. If your key looks like the one shown in the provided photo, you'd want to use # BL7022696 lock.
