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 love the Bolt lock that keys to my truck key. However, the angled side of the hitch pin is wearing an angle into the truck's hitch. I need to stop using it so it doesn't ruin my OEM hitch.


Comments
Can you please provide some photos of what you are describing?
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 05/03/2022
Im 7 states away from my tow vehicle at present, so I cant send a picture. The angled end of the lock has worn away the edge of hole on the vehicles OEM hitch receiver. Instead of the hole in the receiver having a hole with a sharp 90 degree corner at the hole, it now has a 45 degree edge to the hole. I am attaching a sketch of a cross section of the hitch receiver that I hope will get the idea across. Im not much of an artist. Because of the wear on the hitch receiver, I am looking to replace the Bolt hitch with one doesnt have the angled section on it.
-- comment by: Glenn Z - 05/03/2022
I have spoken with an installer and they have confirmed with me that when it comes to OEM hitches, the manufacturers will tend to make the sidewalls of the receiver thicker than on aftermarket hitches. Because of this, with you having a 3 inch hitch, it makes sense why there would be some wear on the outside of the hitch. Unfortunately, we do not have any BOLT hitch locks that have a longer span than this lock you ordered [BL7023585]. So, any of the locks that we carry, will not have the same locking mechanism that fits to the ignition key. However, we do have a hitch lock that has a 4 inch span [just slightly bigger than your hitch lock] that is available for purchase.

Absolutely love this locking pin. Easy to set up and 1 less key to keep track of. Program my truck key to it and I’m not worried about my receiver walking away.




by:

Works well without any trouble on or off after a year in the rain, mud and grime! I keep meaning to put a little lockeze on it but its still working like new.




by:

Looks and feels strong. Quality rubber on lock end and the lock works great with my key. I did add a piece of rubber hose on the non lock end to prevent rattle while on the road and make the whole thing look more complete.
I recommend this hitch lock.


Comments
Still works. Just wish the red rubber part did not fade over time. But it works fine and that is what matters most.

I have three different locks - all with this locking mechanism. So, ant time I need to unlock any of my trailer locks, I just pull out my F150 ignition key. Very convenient.




by:

Bolt Trailer Hitch Lock works as mentioned. Great product, one less key to worry about. Thanks, Lucka




by:

Solidly built and easy to key to my truck’s sidecut key. Couldn’t be happier with the way this has paired with my new Bulletproof Hitches drop hitch.




by:

The receiver lock will not stay on the receiver pin. I can lock it on the pin and can grab it and do a twist and pull and get the lock off the pin. It can be on the truck or in my hands, I can lock it on, remove the key and twist and pull and get the lock off the pin. I will not use it, I do not trust it, I do not recommend it.




by:

This item was purchased to replace other locking pins that rusted and bent in the receiver. I have a three inch receiver with a two and a half inch reducer. This lock feels heavier and more solid than others I’ve tried, so I’m hoping it proves more durable. So far it is performing quite well. I really like having it keyed to my ignition. I am looking forward to switching a couple more locks on my truck over to this system.

Great item to have for your hitch receiver to prevent theft! Ford cut key made it easier to use on the F-350!

Arrived as advertised, set up was straight forward. Thank you!

I really like this hitch lock, it is so easy to use and I don’t have to carry extra keys when I want to install or remove my hitch!!!! Money well spent!!!! Also Paula was great help, helping me over the phone making sure I got what I was looking for!!! Thanks,
Art




by:

So nice to be able to use my truck ignition key with this lock




by:

Wow…no more looking for key to unlock hitch receiver lock. Had two stolen…not now, it’s with my truck key!

But with new key FOBs on newer vehicles don’t think this type of technology will work soo sad…but works for me!




by:

Could not get it to program using my key. I returned it and another was sent to me. Again, it would not program to my key. The two failures were not exactly the same, however it did not work. I sent it back for a credit. Disappointing as this seemed like a good idea.


Comments
I have gotten in contact with the manufacturer and it sounds like these could have came from a faulty batch. There isnt anything specific it sounds like that could be causing this problem. If you were having trouble coding the lock both times, it could have been a worn key, or something not catching properly, but it doesnt sound like its that kind of issue. I have sent your information over to our customer service department for them to get in touch with you.

I've ordered from etrailer several times over the past few years. This time, I ordered a BoltLock trailer hitch lock. I was a little surprised that it took 8 days to arrive, as every other order arrived within 2-3 days. That's life in 2021, though, I guess. No big deal.

I received my lock and went through the process to key it to my truck key. I inserted the hitch pin and locked it in place. Much to my chagrin, I could not get it to unlock. Fortunately, it wasn't locked on my hitch. I emailed etrailer customer support and got a reply within minutes, requesting additional information.

I sent a response and a few minutes later, I received a phone call from an etrailer representative. He was super friendly, and professional. He said he'd contact the manufacturer of the product to see if he could get this resolved and assured me that, at the least, they'd send a replacement.

Let me be clear... etrailer has the BEST customer support. They generally ship fast and are extremely responsive to the rare problem that comes up. That is hard to find these days. I will continue to support this business. While I haven't really compared their prices to other vendors, I doubt I will. Exceptional customer service is invaluable to me.




by:

Works as advertised. Very nice to have it keyed to my trk ignition key. Don't have to worry about losing a dedicated key!




by:

This really frightened me at first. I was able to unlock it with my key but then could not get it unlocked or remove it. After a bit of fidgeting, I was able to get it to work with my truck key. I've cycled it a few dozen times to be certain that it works before installing it on my hitch receiver.




by:

Excellent service from etrailer and excellent hitch lock.




by:
2022 Ford F-350 Super Duty

It is really nice to use your vehicle key to unlock your hitch lock.




by:

The lock was easy to set-up with our vehicle key and using it is just as simple. We use it to secure our hitch-mounted bike rack or travel trailer. It's a piece of mind knowing they can't be stolen.




by:

Opens with my truck key, no need for extra keys.




by:

Prompt service, no surprises




by:

Great quality. Have used it in all kinds of weather from hot to snowy/slushy to well below freezing. Always worked as designed.


Comments
Continues to work well in all kinds of weather. Love the convenience of using the vehicle key in it. Highly recommended.
