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.

I had my reservations about buying this for my Craftsman toolbox but it worked out to be the best thing ever. Everything is now keyed the same. Toolbox, ice chest, hitch, and hitch pin. 738848

Tired of carrying a bunch of different keys to unlock the various locks on your truck? Me too. That's why I ordered these latch replacements that are keyed to my ignition key. I also use the BOLT receiver hitch lock. Now, my ignition key unlocks everything on the truck. This is the second pickup of setup this way. Clean and simple. 726427

The hitch is great, and the feedback and information from etrailer is even better!! The only reason it didn’t get 5 stars was due to installation. The video did not accurately represent my vehicle. (2019 F350 SRW 4x4) If you have a 48 gallon fuel tank and the FX4 package, the hitch is an incredibly tight fight. Half of the bolts are impossible to torque, so I recommend using a good impact and thread locker. 714911


Ask the Experts about this Bolt Accessories and Parts

  • Will BOLT Toolbox Latch Fit a Delta Champion Toolbox
    A lot of toolboxes use the same type of equipment so it is possible that BOLT toolbox latch # BL7023550 will work. If your existing Delta Champion toolbox latches are of the same design (look over the pictures on our site to compare) then it will work. If they are different email me some pictures of the front and back of the latches and I can determine if we have something that will work.
