Keeping Your Valuables Safe and Secure

BOLT Lock in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has become one of the largest producers of automotive locks and keys in the world. What makes BOLT stand out from other lock manufacturers is its breakthrough one-key lock technology. Simply select a Ford-, Ram-, Chevy-, Jeep-, Nissan– or Toyota-compatible lock, and on its first use, the BOLT Lock permanently sets to your key. To go along with this convenience, BOLT Locks uses the latest automotive-grade technology in each product it builds to not only enhance security, but also to offer a limited lifetime warranty.

After seeing this type of technology in each of BOLT’s lock designs, it makes perfect sense to use the locks for all my applications. I have a ’15 Ford F-150 as my daily driver, and it has a unique, side-cut key setup that is not like other keys. After visiting BOLT’s website, I was more than excited to see just how many products they offer.
