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.


Ford side cut keys compatible with BOLT locks

If your Ford side-cut 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.

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

- 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!

Very simple, one turn with the key and the lock is set with your car key. 781815

- BL7023585

This is my second Bolt hitch lock and I love the function and concept but this lock does not fit the 2020 Superduty hitch unless you take the red rubber section off. It needs to be about .125” longer so the shoulder can slide far enough into the rubber piece to allow the lock to engage. 771421

- BL7023585

Great price with speedy delivery! 746029

- 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

  • BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Compatible with 2019 Ford F-250
    The 2019 Ford F-250 key is the same as the 2018 models in terms of style, so the BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches - Codes to Ford Side-Cut Key # BL7023585 will be compatible.

  • Can the BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Locks Be Re-Coded To Multiple Keys
    The BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Locks like part # BL7023585 can only be coded to one ignition key. Therefore, you can't transfer it from vehicle to vehicle. This would allow anyone with the same truck to steal hitch pin lock and whatever you had attached to the trailer hitch if that were the case. Instead, you will want to use a standard hitch pin lock like the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # BWTS51235. I have attached a full list of options for you as well.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Can BOLT Locking Hitch Pin be Keyed Alike with Thule Key
    The BOLT locks, like part # BL7023585 you referenced, are only designed to be keyed alike to the ignition keys of various vehicles so unfortunately you won't be able to accomplish that. Since it looks like you're needing a locking hitch pin I recommend using the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98881 instead. This will fit both 2" and 2-1/2" receivers, it is double chrome plated for extra corrosion resistance, and it is made in the USA.

  • 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 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...

  • 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.
