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. .

I am extremely well satisfied with every aspect (product, price, quality, and delivery) of my order from etrailer.com. I would highly recommend them to a friend and would not hesitate to order from them again. The towing mirrors fit like a glove and the Bolt locks are extremely well built and open with my truck key. Awesome! 311472

- BL7023585

This receiver lock is just what the doctor ordered. Fits perfectly on my 2019 Ford F350. It's super easy to set up with your ignition key, just insert and turn until it stops: DONE! Sturdy and secure! I bought an expensive adjustable ball mount, but I know it's safe with this receiver lock. Thanks etrailer for stocking great products, with lots of information, and lightning fast shipping. 612177

This will fit the new Ford 3” receiver hitch. The Bolt locks do not corrode and seize up like their counterparts. I strongly recommend this product!! 710785

- BL7023585

I received the product as advertised and checked the setting and function of the key. Setting the key combination worked very easily and it makes a good secure lock to the hitch pin. I have not tried it yet on my vehicle but I don't perceive a problem. The case looks like it has a good sealing case to protect the inner working from moisture. So far I am pleased with the product. 472328

- BL7023585

I really and pleased with this lock. It couldn't be easier to key. I'm not worried about having my $300 weigh safe hitch disappear now. The lock portion is quite large and is in the area where the safety chain hook connects to my hitch. It could be an issues with large hooks. Overall, I am happy with this lock. 241098

Have had no issues with this lock. Love not having to add an additional key on the keychain for a hitch lock!

So far, excellent. They keyed as indicated. I ordered 2; one for their fifth wheel lock and one for a rear tow hitch on an F250. They both fit as expected. I got them to manage keys and the truck key feature has met my expectations. I will circle back after more use to see how the locks hold up. I tried one on my companion hitch to see if it would fit. It does not. 590346

The only reason not to give 5 stars is that the head is a bit bulky, but not so big that it cannot work. Just trying to give the manufacturer incentive to design a smaller locking head. The other problem is my new truck has push-button start and the key is inside the fob where it's a bit of work to get out. That makes this lock less attractive. But that's an issue with me and the new truck, not the lock. The lock works great and it is very nice not to have another key on the ring just for the hitch lock. On the old truck and my Jeep, I used these all the time. If you have an actual key for your truck then this is the cat's meow. 459891

- BL7023585

This keyed locking pin is excellent. Easy to use and no need for an additional key to care make this a wonderful choice for locking my B&W hitch. 738351

- BL7023585

Incredible product! My second one to own. Uses your factory truck key(even with a fob, uses the metal key part). So great to own, makes swapping your hitch easier than ever! No more fumbling multiple keys or losing the hitch lock key. 736557

The Bolt Hitch Lock is perfect for your truck, it uses the same key as your truck. After one year of use in PA with snow / salt it’s held up great and is very East to take on an off. This is a must have for your truck 729191

- BL7023585

I was tired of having multiple keys on my key ring to unlock my cross bed tool box, to change the receiver hitch, to unlock the mounted gerry cans. I use BOLT products on all of these items so now my truck ignition key unlocks EVERYTHING on the truck. This is the second truck I've set up this way. Huge fan of the BOLT products. 726429

Ask the Experts about this Bolt Hitch Locks

  • Trailer Hitch Lock that Fits a 3 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The pin length on BOLT lock # BL7023585 won't be long enough for a 3 inch trailer hitch. Right now they do not make one that will be long enough but who knows what the future holds. If the 3 inch hitches take off in popularity then we might see some accessories like BOLT locks made for them.

  • What is Usable Span of BOLT Hitch Pin Lock for 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    The usable span of the Bolt Hitch Lock part # BL7023585 that you referenced is a little over 3-1/2 inches. If you check out the picture I attached you'll see all of the dimensions of the lock. This lock is intended for use with 2-1/2 inch hitches like you have so it should work well for you.

  • Does the BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Part # BL7023585 Have a Weight Capacity
    The BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # BL7023585 is rated for use on Class III, IV, and V trailer hitch receivers. There is not a specific weight capacity listed for this hitch lock but I can assure you that it will be more than capable for your truck/trailer.

  • BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Compatible with 2019 Ford F-250

  • BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2019 Toyota Tacoma
    While there may be a BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock that works for your 2019 Toyota Tacoma, the BOLT # BL7023585 is only a fit for Fords. Instead, the BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches - Codes to Toyota Key # BL7023584 would potentially be what you need. It is a fit for SR/SR5 models and yours key would need to look like one of the keys in the accompanying photo.

  • Does BOLT Trailer Hitch Lock for 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches # BL7023585 Have Capacity for 10k Trailer
    Yes, the BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches # BL7023585 that you referenced would be strong enough for towing a 10,000 lb travel trailer like you have. Hitch pins like this don't normally have stated weight capacities as they typically do not carry the weight of the trailer like it might appear. The tongue weight of the trailer typically pushes so hard down in the hitch tube that the friction alone holds the ball mount in place and not the hitch pin.

  • Recommended B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount for Ford F-250 Trucks
    For your standard height trucks and trailers, the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop, 5-1/2" Rise - 10K - Black # BWTS10048B will work very well for both of your trucks. This will not only work well with all 5 of your trailers but will also give you great ground clearance. If you had a lift on your truck, then I'd recommend the 7 inch drop # BWTS10049B, but it won't be needed on a non-lifted truck and will give you less ground clearance. The 2 inch shank on the # BWTS10048B...

  • Hitch Reducer and Heavy Duty Hitch Lock for 2019 F250
    The Brophy Hitch Reducer # HR26 is a fine choice to fit to your Thule T2 Pro XTB # TH9034XT. The Thule should have come with a locking hitch pin for the 2" end of the reducer so a great choice for securely locking 2 1/2 inch hitch pin would be the BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Item # BL7023585. At 5/8 inch diameter it's great for Class 3-5 hitches and I contacted Bolt who confirmed this key is compatible through 2019 Ford F-250 models with side cut key patterns. This means one less...

  • Recommended 3-Ball Tow and Stow Compatible with Custom Bumper
    We do have the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop, 5.5" Rise - 10K - Browning # BWTS10048BB which has a pin hole farthest from mounting block dimension of 5-5/8 inches. Another option with the same depth measurement is the # BWTS10047BB which has a 3 inch drop. These are the only B&W hitches that have the 3-Ball option that will fit your bumper. I recommend the hitch lock # BWTS51234 to secure your investment.
