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.


Compatibility

Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep keys compatible with BOLT locks

If your Chrysler, Dodge, or Jeep key looks like one of the keys above, it is compatible with BOLT locks.

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 Product Line Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the BOLT family of locks. Now, the BOLT is a very unique lock. It's designed to use your vehicle's ignition key and it can be coded to Toyotas, Nissans, Fords, GM, Chevys. A lot of different vehicles. The BOLT lock, the BOLT, BOLT, stands for Breakthrough One Key Lock Technology. As you can see here, we've got a padlock on. Our padlock.

It uses our factory Ford key. No extra keys that we have to keep up with. As you can see, it opens it nicely, locks without a problem. The special part is that now we can take this same key right over to our six-foot-long self-coiling cable lock. Operates it just like it did the padlock. If you'll come here to the hitch with me, take a look.

We've got our trailer coupler lock right here. Same key. Operates that without issue and even down here to our hitch pin lock. We're looking at the same thing. Key is going to go right in.

Functions just as it should, all using that exact same key. Now, they even have pickup truck bed mountain toolboxes. They've got the latch style levers on them. They've got the BOLT One Key accessories to fit that and even spare tire carriers. I've got that installed on my Jeep, so let's take a look at that one. As you can see here, on our Jeep, the same technology applies. All of them have the nice rubber hardened protection that's going to go around the lock.

They've got a stainless steel lock shutter that's going to protect our zinc cast core from any kind of corrosion, giving us some really superior corrosion resistance. Got that and it's going to go right over the top and cover that up as well. They use a six plate tumbler style. It is an automotive quality lock. That's going to prevent any kind of picking or anything like that. Now that we've gone over our full line of the BOLT locks, that will complete today's look. .

Works great on the new 2-1/2" hitch that came on my 2016 Ram 2500 4x4. Super easy to key lock to my Ram key. Trying to eliminate as many keys as I can. Was a little bigger than I thought, but still clears the two chain hooks. Solid and beautifully finished. As you can see in the picture, I also got the matching BOLT coupler lock. 312098

Wow, this is a neat product! The lock "pinned" to my vehicle's ignition key quickly and easily. It is great to not have to carry an additional key in order to lock and unlock the hitch! 584556

With this and other BOLT products, I am able to use only one key for all locks. By not having multiple keys for all of the locks, I don’t have to remember to carry any extra keys, and the key that I need is always at hand. 513147

Excellent products. The one thing you dont lose when hunting is your car keys. Even then most guys have another set stashed away somewhere. I used these through two full hunting seasons now and cant be more satisfied by their functionality. In fact 3 of the guys I hunt with have inquired about the locks. I directed them to your website.

Do you have a question about this Hitch Lock?


  • Do BOLT Coupler Lock and Hitch Locks # BL7018448 and # BL7025286 Fit 2007 Dodge Ram 2500
  • Yes, both Bolt locks you referenced of # BL7018448 and # BL7025286 will work with the key of your 2007 Dodge Ram 2500. I attached review videos for both locks for you to check out as well.

  • We have keyed-alike hitch locks for the 2-1/2-inch hitch on your Ram 2500 that are displayed on the linked page. All of the items shown can be ordered in multiples that are keyed alike. You will just want to confirm the necessary length and diameter to match your hitch accessories. We have standard pin locks like # RH5-XL and pin lock sets like # FA86-00-3685 and we also have special vehicle-specific BOLT locks that can be coded to use your truck's key.

  • Are BOLT Locks Available to Code with Nissan Vehicle Key
  • Our assortment of BOLT code-able locks includes one for Nissan vehicles. We offer BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # BL7023583 which works with two types of keys from a range of Nissan vehicles. You can refer to the linked photo that shows the two compatible key types and the listing of vehicles that can code this lock. We do not have one for Honda at this time.

  • Do Hitch Pins and Locks have Weight Capacities
  • Hitch pins and locks don't actually bear any of the weight of a trailer or accessory so they don't have weight ratings. The only weight capacities you need to consider are for the tow vehicle, the hitch, ball mount, and hitch ball. The tongue weight of a trailer puts so much downward force on the ball mount that it binds it up so well in the hitch that the hitch pin doesn't actually have any force put on it. The hitch or ball mount would fail before the hitch pin would.

  • Bolt Codeable Trailer Locks for 2015 Dodge Durango
  • BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # BL7018448 will permanently code to your 2015 Dodge Durango vehicle key so long as the key is one of the types shown in the linked image. Any of the four key types pictured will code the lock after just one turn of the key. Please note that this coding is a one-time process and it cannot be undone; you cannot re-code a lock for a new vehicle/key. If your key does not match any of those shown in the photo please provide a photo of the entire key.

  • Bolt Custom Hitch Lock Will Not Unlock Using Key for 2015 Ram 2500
  • According to Bolt if you are using the emergency key from the FOB for your 2015 Ram it could be hard to get enough leverage to turn the key and unlock the hitch lock. Jiggling while turning may help to unlock the lock with the emergency key. They lock codes itself to the key when you insert the key, turn it once, and then remove the key. If you inserted the pin before removing the key that could have affected the tumblers inside and permanently coded it wrong. Since they cannot be re-coded...

  • Recommended Locking Hitch Pin for 2018 Ram 2500 with 2-1/2 Inch OEM Hitch Receiver
  • For your factory Ram 2500 trailer hitch with 2-1/2 inch receiver, I recommend the BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # BL7018448 because it will use your factory ignition key and save you the hassle of a separate key. If you prefer the separate key and want the anti-rattle built in, then I recommend the XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2-1/2" Hitches - 3-1/2" Span # SHP2040-XL. This will work great with ball mounts and many accessories that don't have a specific threading....

  • Solution for Angled End of Hitch Pin Wallowing Out Hitch Pin Hole
  • I may have a solution for you, however we do not have a straight hitch pin available that is compatible with the BOLT Receiver Locks like the part # BL7018448 you were looking at. If the angled end of the pin is wallowing out the hitch pin hole then most likely the accessory is moving around quite a bit inside the receiver during travel. To keep this from happening I recommend adding an anti-rattle device like the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061. This will slide over the shank of your...
