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.

BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches - Codes to Ford Key - BL7018447

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (125 Customer Reviews)

This 5/8" diameter receiver lock codes to your vehicle's ignition key. Made of automotive-grade materials and nearly impossible to pick or bump, this corrosion-resistant lock helps keep your ball mount safe and secure.

It's great to not add yet another key to the RV keyring! This is a great idea, BUT the locking portion is large. Depending on how your RV's hitch and safety cable attachment points are configured, this may not allow enough space for your safety cable hook to attach to the RV, unless you're using fairly lightweight cables that attach with S hooks.

Still a happy buyer a year later! If you need a locking hitch pin, get one of these. You wont be disappointed.

I have multiples of these for locking various cables and hitches to my vehicle. It is the best thing since sliced bread. It keeps my key bring down to just a couple of keys instead of 7 or 8 different lock keys for various locks. You can also pick them up in a shackle style lock as well.

ordered 2 sets of hitch receiver locks and spare tire cable locks for my Expedition and Raptor. great products and quality. no more extra keys to use and easy to use the ignition key to unlock them

- BL7018447

These are excellent locks, vehicle keyed specific to yours. I highly recommend these. I give as gifts, but also have one for my truck. Strong, sturdy, looks good and no extra keys on my key ring.

Awesome!!! Highly recommend

One key for every lock, from boat, utility trailer, locker room to the tool shed! Amazing product, thank you.

- BL7018447

Convenient having my tow hitch securely locked to my truck and keyed to the vehicle key.

I love these locks. They make securing the trailer so much easier and convenient.

- BL7018447

This locking pin looks even better in person, heavy duty, and also like that I can lock it then push it onto the pin. Highly recommend!

The organization that I work for has used the bolt for over 10 years and we have never had a failure. We have 11 vehicles that we use them on. It is so handy not to have carry any extra keys. I just bought one for myself on my truck. These locks are also easy to operate unlike others I have used. Buy one you wont go wrong. E-trailer also had very helpful customer service when I had need to use them.

- BL7018447

Doesn't work with the new Ford keys so that was disappointing but it did work with my 2006 ford keys

- BL7018447

This lock is perfect! It uses the ignition key, so one less key to worry about. It also fits the 2-1/2 inch receiver which not all do. I purchased the same coupler lock as well.

Very heavy duty product, extremely satisfied. Easy to code the key. Super fast delivery. Fantastic experience.

- BL7018447

Great service and producr

- BL7018447

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.

- BL7018447

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!

- BL7018447

the lock came to me as shown on the website. I rekeyed the lock to my truck key. works great. glad I found you. thanks

Works great, glad I bought it

I love the Bolt Lock hitch lock. Simple to use and always operates easily as the cover keep the crud out of the lockset. I have one for each vehicle and won't use any other hitch lock.

- BL7018447

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

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.
