If you drive a car, a ute, a 4WD or if you pull a trailer, then the BOLT Series of locks is for you. The BOLT Series of locks lets you set all your car, ute, 4WD, truck, trailer and equipment locks to work with one key – your ignition key!

All BOLT locks feature:

  • 6 Plate Tumbler Sidebar prevents picking, bumping
  • Automotive grade, weather-resistant shutter
