Bolt Lock for Monster Hook

BOLT LOCK PARTNERS WITH MONSTER HOOK TO
RELEASE A SWIVEL HOOK WITH BOLT TECHNOLOGY

 

MILWAUKEE – BOLT Lock has joined with Monster Hook to provide their “Breakthrough One-Key Lock Technology” on a new swivel hook produced in conjunction with Monster Hook. Swivel hooks produced by Monster Hook are already sturdy due to being crafted from aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum, but the BOLT Lock technology will bring added security by supplying a lock specifically programmed to the vehicle’s ignition key.
 
Recovery hooks are an important accessory for pickup trucks, SUVs and Jeeps(r). Monster Hooks swivel hooks are designed to be 99-percent faster than other 3/4-inch pin shackle hooks due to the latching mechanism rather than the standard method of unscrewing the top in order to loop the tow strap. The addition of the BOLT lock located on the hook itself prevents the pin used to attach the hook to the vehicle from moving freely when locked. Using BOLT lock technology, the new Locking Recovery Hook will be the first locking hook on the market.
 
Using specially crafted tumblers, BOLT locks memorize the vehicle’s ignition key upon the first insertion and rotation. Each lock produced by BOLT is make/model/year specific due to the differences of the keys produced by each vehicle manufacturer. By programming each lock to the vehicle’s ignition key, BOLT removes the hassle of key clutter and makes the locks harder to tamper with, providing a more secure, yet highly convenient, option.
 
“All of us at BOLT Lock are really excited to work with Monster Hook to create this new Recovery Hook incorporating BOLT technology,” said Jason Buckles, Sales Account Manager for BOLT Lock. “We’re always proud to be able to work with other companies to be able to bring the convenience of BOLT innovation to their products.”
 
The new Locking Recovery Hook made in partnership with Monster Hook is just one more application where BOLT has incorporated their unique technology into products offered by other companies. BOLT engineers can incorporate the company’s proprietary locking mechanisms into virtually any product to solve a variety of locking challenges.

New BOLT Mounting System Wins SEMA 2015 New Product Award

BOLT J-MOUNT JEEP HI-LIFT JACK MOUNT WINS SEMA
2015 NEW PRODUCT AWARD

MILWAUKEE – The new BOLT (Breakthrough One-Key Lock Technology) J-Mount(tm) Jeep hi-lift jack bracket mounting system was named a 2015 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association) New Product Award winner in the Van/Pickup/Sport Utility category. With 16 different award categories, this popular annual competition recognizes outstanding achievements in the development of products being introduced to the specialty automotive aftermarket at the SEMA Show.

BOLT’s uniquely-designed Jeep accessory, the J-Mount, allows Jeep TJ and JK off-road enthusiasts to securely attach their hi-lift jack to the side of their vehicle for easy, vertical access, and features the one-key convenience of BOLT lock technology. This patented innovation permanently programs the lock to the Jeep owner’s vehicle ignition key, eliminating the need for extra keys.  Once the ignition key is inserted into the lock cylinder, spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down and the first time the key is rotated, the cylinder is uniquely coded to that key.  An auto-return spring locks automatically when the key is removed.

SEMA used a number of important product aspects as judging criteria for the award, including potential, innovativeness, consumer appeal, quality and workmanship, and availability (cost). “We designed the J-Mount and our other Jeep products to offer the simplified, convenient security of BOLT’s one-key lock technology to Jeep owners, on-the-go consumers that really benefit from easy access to protect their vehicle’s accessories, spare tire, under-hood contents, trailers and equipment,” said Erika Garcia, BOLT national sales manager. SEMA attendees can learn more about the J-Mount and all of BOLT’s products at Booth #35133 Upper South Hall. For more information on the complete selection of Jeep lock products, visit BOLTLock.com.

BOLT and other SEMA New Product Award winners will be recognized at the annual SEMA Industry Awards Banquet on the evening of Thursday, November 5.

Lansing, Mich. – New load support solutions from towing safety experts Air Lift Company are available for the suspension system on 2009-2015 RAM 1500 half-ton pickup trucks. The LoadLifter 5000 and LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE are industry-leading air spring kits designed to improve ride quality, handling and safety when towing and hauling heavy loads.

To provide additional support for the new five-link-coil rear suspension system of the two-wheel and four-wheel drive RAM 1500 models, Air Lift engineered two heavy-duty towing options featuring application-specific brackets and air springs.

Virtually maintenance-free, LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE is adjustable for a safe, comfortable ride, loaded or unloaded. Both kits, which are currently available for pre-order, are easy to install and are backed by Air Lift’s exclusive lifetime warranty.

“Our company is dedicated to providing towing safety, comfort and convenience for a wide variety of trucks, and these kits will provide those important benefits to 2009-2015 RAM 1500 owners,” said Kevin Mehigh, president, Air Lift.

BOLT Locks now Available for Popular Toyota Models

BOLT LOCKS NOW AVAILABLE FOR POPULAR TOYOTA MODELS
One-Key Lock Technology Offers Security and Convenience

MILWAUKEE, Wis. – STRATTEC Security Corporation, a leading automotive lock and key manufacturer, has expanded its BOLT product line to encompass a wide range of Toyota’s most popular automobiles and trucks, including the Tundra, Tacoma, FJ Cruiser, Rav-4, Highlander, Landcruiser and 4-Runner.
BOLT locks are designed to boost convenience and security through the company’s patented Breakthrough One-Key Lock Technology, which permanently programs the lock to the owner’s vehicle ignition key and eliminates the need for extra keys.
Once the ignition key is inserted into the lock cylinder, spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down until they are matched exactly to that key. The first time the key is rotated, the cylinder is uniquely coded to that key.
“Now Toyota owners can enjoy single-key convenience, using their ignition key to unlock toolboxes, bike racks, trailers, gates, storage areas and other applications in which a lock is used in proximity to an ignition key,” said Sales Manager Erika Garcia. “Our patented technology not only helps streamline security for recreational equipment, hobbies and outdoor events, it also reduces the key clutter that tends to build up over time because numerous locks can be used with one ignition key.”
The BOLT product line for Toyota includes the Padlock 2.0, Toolbox Latch Retrofit Kit, Cable Lock, Trailer Spare Tire Lock, Lock Cylinder and the 5/8-inch and 1/2-inch Receiver Lock.
• BOLT Cable Locks are made from six-foot by 1/4-inch coiled cable and feature an automotive-grade lock shutter to keep out weather and debris, as well as a six-plate tumbler sidebar that prevents picking and bumping.
• BOLT Padlock 2.0 features a spring-loaded, chrome-plated 5/16” diameter hardened steel shackle inside a crush-resistant body shell.
• BOLT Receiver Locks feature a durable, stainless steel pin and an automotive-grade stainless steel lock shutter, with an auto-return spring that automatically locks when the key is removed.
• BOLT Trailer Spare Tire Locks, which are manufactured with an electroless nickel-plated carbon steel pin or shaft assembly/shield for strength and durability, feature an automotive-grade stainless steel lock shutter and a six-plate tumbler sidebar that prevents picking and bumping.
• BOLT Toolbox Latch Retrofit Kit features a solid zinc core and an automotive-grade cylinder with patented six-plate tumbler sidebar to prevent picking and bumping. A stainless steel lock shutter keeps out dirt and moisture.
