New Padlock, Receiver, Other Locks Open with
Vehicle Key


VEGAS (Nov. 2, 2010) — SEMA 2010 will mark the launch of an expanded BOLT
â„¢ Series of locks, all of which
can be set to open with a vehicle key. The BOLT (Breakthrough One-Key Lock
Technology) technology debuted by STRATTEC Security Corp. at the 2009 SEMA
show, winning the Light Truck Accessory Alliance "Best Engineered New Product"
award as well as two Global Media Awards. Now BOLT technology will be available in a complete line of products,
including two receiver lock models, a cable lock, a spare tire lock and a
motorcycle wheel lock.

locks have a patented, automotive-style cylinder that allows a user to
insert their car or truck key, turn once, and set the lock to their key. Any
number of locks in the series can be set to one key. Thus, a BOLT lock
owner can use one key ““ their car key ““ to lock their toolbox, trailer hitch,
storage shed, gate, rod or gun locker”¦and so on.  Convenience isn’t the
BOLT locks’ only benefit, however. All BOLT Series locks feature an
automotive-grade shutter and rugged jacket which make them corrosion resistant
and six plate tumblers to prevent picking and bumping.

Series locks fit over 70 percent of all Ford, GM and Chrysler vehicles, making
them compatible with over 100 million vehicles, including nearly 90 percent of
all light trucks on the road. BOLT receiver locks are designed for use with
trailers carrying boats, autos, ATVs as well as other hitch-mounted accessories. They come in 5/8-inch and ½ -inch diameters,
for Class I-IV truck hitches.

BOLT locks are
currently available online at and at select retailers.

STRATTEC Security Corp. is the world’s largest
manufacturer of automotive locks and keys, and supplies ignition locks and keys
to all three U.S. automakers. For more information about the BOLT Series of
