Bolt Locks displayed two new locks at SEMA that feature the company’s popular single key technology.
The Fifth Wheel King Pin Locking System works in conjunction with BOLT’s 5/8-inch Receiver Lock, which is sold separately, to prevent fifth wheel trailer theft.
“The Fifth Wheel King Pin Locking System was developed to expand the uses for our very popular 5/8-inch Receiver Lock,” said Erika Garcia, BOLT’s National Sales Manager. “Adding our new King Pin Locking System to our 5/8-inch Receiver Lock enables users to secure anything that is being towed with a Fifth Wheel type receiver, ramping up security for either work-related or recreational towing applications.”
Bolt’s King Pin Locking System features a U-shaped black powder coated hardened steel collar that wraps around the Fifth Wheel King Pin and attaches to a Bolt 5/8-inch Receiver Lock to securely hold the fifth wheel in place in the bed of the pickup. Together, the system acts as a visible theft deterrent, allowing the trailer to be secured with the owner’s truck key.
Next up is Bolt’s highly visible Off-Vehicle Coupler Lock that secures a trailer when it’s not attached to a vehicle.
Made of hardened steel for extra security, the Off-Vehicle Coupler Lock works with 1 7/8-inch, 2-inch and 2 15/16-inch couplers to keep a variety of trailers secure while unattended.
“We have a hardened stainless strap that goes into a hardened plate on the bottom. It’s powder-coated red to ensure high visibility,” explained Steve Gilles, director of new business development at Strattec, Bolt’s parent company.
The innovative Bolt lock is a visible theft deterrent that is designed with a unique plate tumbler sidebar to prevent picking and bumping. A highly durable powder-coated finish is factory applied to the lock to keep dirt and moisture out while protecting the locking mechanism from harsh weather.
Both the Fifth Wheel King Pin Locking System and the Off-Vehicle Coupler Lock feature Bolt’s patented one-key lock technology that permanently programs locks to the vehicle’s ignition key for single-key use no matter how many Bolt locks are being used. The lock is easily programmed the first time the ignition key is inserted into the Bolt Lock cylinder through the use of spring-loaded plate tumblers that move up and down to uniquely code the cylinder to that specific key.
