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 Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the BOLT Locks Receiver Hitch Pin Locks. These are designed to replace your standard hitch pin and clip and could be keyed right to your vehicle's ignition key. They're available in 2 styles. We've got an inch and a quarter here, it's going to be for your class 1 and class 2, and we've got our 2 or 2-1/2 inch pin here, which will work great for the class 3, 4, or 5. They use an automotive quality lock, uses a 6-plate tumbler to help prevent any picking, it's got a stainless steel shutter. If you can see there on the front.

That's going to keep dirt out of the cast zinc cylinder to give us a superior corrosion protection. The outside uses a hard rubber, easy grip casing that's going to protect the lock. It attaches to the pin using a double ball bearing system. The pin itself is stainless steel and rustproof. When the key is removed, it is going to lock automatically. They make it right here in the United States and they offer a limited lifetime warranty.

Now, it couldn't be easier to get our lock setup. When you get it, there's going to be a sticker over that and a small, black, you could see here, small, black rubber cover. Once you've got that pulled off, we'll just slide our key in, turn it, turn it back, and that's all it takes. Our lock is now coated to our ignition key. We're ready to use our bolt hitch pin lock. We'll just remove our standard hitch pin and clip.

With that out of the way, we'll take our pin, we'll slide that through, and simply press the lock on the other end. As you can see there, we're nice and secure. We're not going to have to worry about anybody removing our ball mount and taking our trailer. Now, when the job's done, we're going to remove the black cover that's there on the end, place our key in there if I can see it. There we go, now with the key in, we'll just turn in and pull to remove it. Very easy system and setup so we can run our entire vehicle and cargo management systems all in our vehicle's ignition key.

That will complete today's look at the BOLT Series of Locking Hitch Pins. .

We're traveling full time and I use the lock on the front hitch of the truck to s haul our generator 665438

I LOVE that I can use my truck key to unlock this and it seems very sturdy too. I feel like the rubber key hole cover might break off some day though and when it's installed, the locking mechanism is so wide that it interferes with the safety chain hook. But I highly recommend! 660584

I really like that it's a very high quality receiver lock that accepts my existing ignition key. What a concept! 460555

The BL7018447 bolt works great the Blylock jam nut lock for my 5th wheel sundowner trailer did not fit. had to modify the washer to fit the jam bolt. Hole in washer was too small. overall very happy with products. Had to return one part and got gouged on the refund. Thanks 627805

I have these on all my pickups except the King Ranch, doesn’t have a key. Cuts back on keys on the ring. Works great on the RV with the Ford V-10. If multiple people have keys to the trucks they also have a key for the hitch pin. Perfect. 461479

Have had this for a year now. I live on a dirt road so it has been exposed to a ton of sand and water yet still effortlessly opens. No rust either. Great product. 409564

Works great on a pickup but lock cylinder is quite large. It is 3 1/8" long and 1 5/8" wide so if you have a Ford SUV like an Escape you might want to measure available space before ordering. You would need about 6 3/4" of available space to be able to insert the key into the lock. Nice to have only one key for my F-350 that has an lockable auxiliary tank/toolbox combo and is double pulling a fifth wheel with a dog trailer behind it. 211899

Very happy with the Bolt locks and having all the locks keyed alike.

Another great product from "Made in China". The hitch extension is made with heavy gauge metal, the powder-coated paint job is heavy duty and resists scratches. The additional hitch receiver serves not just to receive another hitch such as a bike rake, but also as a step for me to step onto the towing truck bed. Overall it is a very well designed and well made product, definitely worth the price. 156444

Easy to key and use. Clear instructions. High quality. I keyed the lock in seconds and was sure to use my spare key which is not worn out. I then tried my key I use every day which is slightly worn from use and the it would not unlock. This means that the key cylinder is precise and will provide great security. I will buy more bolt products 231120

Having recently purchased a chrome led step from etrailer I needed something to make sure it didn't walk away. Have always been interested in Bolt lock products so the hitch lock was a logical choice and no extra key to add to the key ring. Lock keyed easily and immediately put it to work. Thanks to etrailer for their usual fast processing/shipping. 431663
