BOLT Cable Lock (Gate)

MILWAUKEE, Wis. – STRATTEC® Security Corporation offers a full line of BOLT® locks ideal for horse enthusiasts who need a convenient way to lock up their expensive equestrian gear.

Designed to provide convenience and security, BOLT locks feature a patented Breakthrough One-Key Lock Technology that allows users to permanently program the locks to work with a vehicle’s ignition key.  A variety of BOLT locks, such as Cable Locks, Receiver Locks, the Padlock 2.0, Toolbox Latch Retrofit Kits and Trailer Spare Tire Locks, can help prevent theft while eliminating the need for multiple keys.

To use the locks, drivers insert their ignition key into the BOLT lock cylinder, causing spring-loaded plate tumblers to 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 alone.  When the key is removed, the cylinder moves into the locked position.

“As many enthusiasts know, their trucks and trailers are their most important equipment when it comes to hauling valuable horses and gear,” said BOLT Sales Manager Erika Garcia.  “Our BOLT locks let you set all of your truck, trailer and equipment locks to work with a single key – your ignition key – so that once set, you can get rid of all those extra keys hanging from your keychain.  Once programmed, our locks will only open with your ignition key, providing added security when traveling.”

BOLT 6-foot Cable Locks are made from 1/4″ coiled cable with 1/16” black vinyl coating and are coil sprung for compact storage.  They feature a pin and loop design to provide flexible length options, making them ideal for locking stable, corral and pasture gates.

The Receiver Locks, which are available in 5/8” and 1/2” sizes, are plated with a cast zinc cylinder and case for superior corrosion resistance.  They also feature a durable, stainless steel pin and a rugged cover jacket.  The BOLT Padlock 2.0 has a spring-loaded, chrome-plated 5/16” diameter hardened steel shackle inside a crush-resistant body shell to lock trailer doors, toolboxes and more.

All BOLT locks feature an automotive-grade lock shutter to keep out weather and debris and a six-plate tumbler sidebar that prevents picking and bumping.  They are available for most General Motors, Ford and Chrysler vehicles on the road today.  For more information, visit
