BOLT® Offers Comprehensive Lock Series

vendor.2014.bolt.strattec.product-line.jpgMILWAUKEE, Wis. – STRATTEC® Security Corporation’s growing BOLT® line of locks features patented “breakthrough one-key lock technology,” which not only helps deter theft, it also reduces the key clutter that tends to build up over time.

With BOLT technology a single ignition key can be programmed to open any number of BOLT locks, making them convenient for users with multiple security needs. BOLT locks are essential for securing tools, gear, trailers and other valuable equipment around the home and while on the road camping, bicycling, canoeing and enjoying other outdoor activities that require valued gear.

The BOLT series is continually expanding to offer tough, weatherproof locks designed specifically for many of the most common and important security applications for homeowners, travelers and anyone seeking added security and convenience for tools, trailers and equipment,” said BOLT National Sales Manager Erika Garcia.

BOLT locks are easily programmed the first time the ignition key is inserted into the BOLT Lock cylinder. Once the key is inserted, spring-loaded plate tumblers move, immediately coding the cylinder to that unique key. From then on, only the driver’s ignition key is needed to unlock a padlocked toolbox, unhitch a trailer or remove a spare tire.

Rugged, weather-proof BOLT locks are manufactured with an electroless nickel-plated carbon steel pin or shaft assembly/shield for strength and durability, and feature an automotive-grade stainless steel lock shutter, a crush-resistant body shell and a six-plate tumbler sidebar that prevents picking and bumping. The BOLT series includes:

  • The weather-proof BOLT Coupler Pin Lock, fits couplers from 1/2-inch to 3 3/8-inch and is adjustable in increments of 1/8-inch allowing for a snug fit in any size.

  • BOLT’s 1/2” Receiver Lock fits Class I and Class II hitches, while the 5/8-inch Receiver Lock is designed for vehicles with a Class III, Class IV or Class V hitch.

  • BOLT Cable Locks, which are made from six-foot by 1/4-inch coiled cable, feature an automotive-grade lock shutter that keeps out weather and debris while securing recreational toys, cabinets, storage compartments and more.

  • The BOLT Toolbox Latch Retro-Fit Kit, which enables a toolbox cylinder retrofit, helps protect and secure any tools needed on the road.

  • The rugged BOLT Padlock is designed to keep anything that can accept a padlock secured in any type of weather, and features a hardened steel shackle inside a crush-resistant body shell.

BOLT locks are available for many General Motors, Ford, Chrysler/Jeep, Toyota and Nissan applications, and come with a limited lifetime warranty.
