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

Late model GM keys 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 review is for the (Tailgate Handle with Bolt Lock that keys to late model GM Keys. I reviewed the online etrailer video and it seemed very easy. As it turned out it is every bit as easy as the video looks. I spent a total of 10 minutes from removing the old handle to the installation of the the new handle. The quality of this handle is equal to or better than the OEM part that I removed. The easiest step was coding the ignition key to this lock. (Wow how simple) Now with my new ( Hard Trifold Top) I just purchased and this new lock my tools are locked and secured . You can't go wrong with this product just make sure you order the correct one for you vehicle . Which brings up my next point. I was a little confused on the website as to if this would fit my truck. I called the 800 number provided and spoke with Ray. Ray could not answer my question but immediately offered to call the manufacturer for the correct information. In less than 3 minutes he returned with my answer which I then placed my order with Ray. I have never had an experience with any company representative from any company that works, at the level Ray does for the customer. Thanks Ray and Thanks to (etrailer) I will be a returning customer 688798

  • Recommended Tailgate Handle and Lock for 2004 Chevy Silverado
    The Tailgate Handle with BOLT Lock # BL5922987 is more of a snug fit than you may realize. The plastic trim is a strong composite just like what comes from the factory. The front plate with the lock cylinder secures through the back of the tailgate to hold tight. The cam style cylinder has a metal hook that connects through the metal portion of the assembly that is secured with three bolts through the back of the tailgate. Although anyone wanting to break into your vehicle could...

  • Can Bolt Locking Tailgate Handle be Used on a 2013 Chevy Silverado with Factory Backup Camera
    I spoke with my contact at Bolt and you can use tailgate lock # BL5922987 on your 2013 Chevy Silverado with factory backup camera. What you will do is reuse the bezel that is on the truck already instead of using the one that comes with the locking handle. I have included a link to a video review featuring this lock for you.

  • Bolt Locking Tailgate # BL5922987 Compatibility with 2009 Chevy Work Truck
    The Tailgate Handle with BOLT Lock - Codes to Late Model GM Key # BL5922987 will work with your 2009 Chevy Work Truck key. The tailgate should be the same on your work truck because it is on the same chassis, but if it has been modified, then you would also need to modify the system, but the locking mechanism will absolutely work with your work truck.

  • Availability of BOLT Locking Tailgate Handle for 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic
    The best bet for a locking tailgate handle for your 2007 Silverado Classic would be to use the Pop & Lock Power Tailgate Lock, part # PAL8110. If your truck doesn't already have power locks, you'd also need the switch kit, part # PAL9520. According to my Bolt representative, the tailgate handle assembly of the 1999-2006 and 2007 Classic model Silverado is completely different that that of the 2007 New Body and 2008 to present locking tailgate handles. The tailgate handles of the older...

    The Tailgate Handle with BOLT Lock - Codes to Late Model GM Key # BL5922987 will automatically code to your ignition key of your 2011 Chevy Silverado. It will code to the first key used in the cylinder, so make sure you don't "test it " with another similar key. The lock cylinder will not reset once it is coded to a key, so it will be safe to use with your key only. This will work with 2007-2013 Silverado models and 2007-2014 Silverado HD models as well as other vehicles. You may...

  • Does BOLT Tailgate Lock # BL5922987 Fit 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500 Extended Cab
    For your 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500 extended cab the part # BL5922987 is a confirmed fit and will work well. The difference between Classic and New body Silverados is a generation change that happened mid-year a couple times but does not affect a 2011 so it wouldn't be something you'd have to worry about. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Will Bolt Locking Tailgate Handle Work with 2 Keys that are the Same for a 2012 Chevy Silverado
    If both keys are the same for your 2012 Chevy Silverado then both would work with Bolt locking tailgate handle # BL5922987. Most modern vehicles have one key for everything, doors, trunk, ignition so your two keys are likely identical. We are at the mercy of what vehicles are customers bring us for installations. We haven't had a customer come in yet wanting # BL5922987 installed so that is why there isn't an installation video.

  • Could Truck Tailgate Lock Get Pried Off from 2009 Chevy Silverado to be Stolen
    With the right tools and time a thief could maybe pry off the handle and then damage the internals of the lock handle enough that it could release but, if someone was really wanting to steal a tailgate they probably wouldn't have much use for a broken one. Which is why the tailgate lock # BL5922987 is very effective. Most tailgate thieves would come up to yours with a lock and not think it's worth the time it would take to steal as all of that time they'd need would be more time for them...

  • Locking Tailgate Handle for 2004 Chevy Avalanche
    Unfortunately, according to my contacts at Pilot, the Integrated OEM Tailgate Lock, part # LH-003 will not fit a 2004 Chevy Avalanche. However, we do have an available solution for you. BOLT offers the # BL5922987 that has a lock cylinder that you permanently 'code' to your ignition key. You'll install the locking handle, insert your ignition key, turn the key once and the lock will be keyed to match your ignition key. Pretty cool stuff!

  • Availability of Keyed Alike Coupler Lock, Hitch Lock and Padlock

BOLT offers hitch locks, coupler latch locks and padlocks that can be keyed alike to certain vehicle ignition keys. For instance, if you had a 2013 Chevy Silverado, you could use the BOLT # BL7018446 hitch lock, the # BL7018518 padlock or even the # BL5922987 locking tailgate handle. I don't have anything...
