BOLT Lock now offers programmable locks that are compatible with the valet key contained inside key fobs.
BOLT locks gained popularity for their compatibility with ignition keys. The unique tumblers of the lock are quickly set after inserting and rotating a key. With key fobs becoming more popular Bolt has now enabled its locks to work with the valet key inside the fob.
“At BOLT Lock, we feel it’s very important to let our customers know that they can still use our locks to protect their valuables even if they have key fobs and keyless start vehicles,” said Jason Buckles, sales account manager for BOLT Lock.
“As automakers move forward into keyless vehicles, we are proud to already have a solution so that way we can still offer the same reliable one-key lock technology to these customers.”
