New Toolbox Latch Retrofit Kit Eliminates Need for Extra Keys

MILWAUKEE, Wis. – The team at STRATTEC(r) Security Corporation was honored with the Light-Truck Accessories Alliance (LTAA) Best Product Under $500 Award at the 2011 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show.

STRATTEC earned the award for their new BOLT Toolbox Latch Retrofit Kit, which is designed to prevent problems with lost keys and costly lockouts on truck-mounted toolboxes.  The LTAA Awards have been established to recognize outstanding achievements in the light truck industry.

Featuring the company’s Breakthrough One-Key Lock Technology, the Toolbox Latch Retrofit Kit eliminates the need to carry extra keys for truck-mounted toolboxes by permanently programing the toolbox lock to the specific vehicle’s ignition key.  Here’s how the technology works: When drivers insert their ignition key into the lock cylinder, spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down until they are matched exactly to that key.  Simply insert the truck’s ignition key into the toolbox lock, turn it once and the lock learns the key.

The BOLT Toolbox Latch Retrofit Kit works with DeeZee(r), UWS Truck Accessories and other toolbox brands featuring a paddle-style handle.  It can be purchased and installed through your local truck accessory store.  Visit to locate a store near you.  The product also comes with detailed instructions that are easy for knowledgeable do-it-yourselfers to follow.  To see a video of the BOLT Toolbox Latch Retrofit Kit in use, visit
