The BOLT Lock Line
What vehicles does BOLT Locks work with?
BOLT Locks work with a majority of the vehicles on the road today. Currently we have lines for Ford, Chevy, GMC, Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, Jeep, Toyota and Nissan vehicles going back to about the mid-90’s.
Want to make sure that we have a lock for you? Check out our vehicle match!
Will the locks work with my house key?
At this time BOLT Locks only work with a double sided vehicle ignition key.
You don’t list my vehicle on the vehicle match! Do you still have a lock that works with my key?
The simple answer, maybe.
GM, Ford, and Chrysler owners –
We do not always list out every trim level for these vehicles. If you go through the vehicle match and you don’t see your vehicle, try again but this time use just the base model or “none”. Our vehicle match is based on the lock and key packages and many times these overlap. If you want to double check that you have the right lock click on the part number and there is an image of the compatible keys on the product page.
Toyota and Nissan owners –
For these vehicles we are dependent on waiting for the key information to be published before we can verify that they work with our locks. Does this mean that your vehicle key won’t work with our locks? Not necessarily. Use the last model year available in our vehicle match, click on the part number of the lock you would like and check that your key looks like the ones we show on the product page.
Other manufacturers (Honda, Kia, etc.) –
Out engineers are always looking at new manufacturers that we can make locks for! Send us an e-mail at email@example.com and let us know which vehicle you have so we can make sure that they know that people want them!
Still not sure if your key will work? Send us a picture of your key, along with what vehicle you have, to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to look at it and let you know!
My Nissan key doesn’t fit! What should I do?
First, stop! Don’t try forcing your key into the lock as you can damage both your key and the lock.
Nissan vehicles come with both a standard key and a valet key which is slightly thicker. As an extra security measure BOLT Locks do not work with Nissan valet keys and only work with your original factory key. If you are not sure which key you have we recommend you try your key in your glove box. The lock on your glove box only works with your original factory key so if it does not fit please try and locate your original key before coding your BOLT Locks.
I have a Chevy Colorado / GMC Canyon from before 2014; do you have a lock for me?
Unfortunately this is one of the few GM vehicles we do not support. The Colorado/Canyon uses a different type of key besides the standard GM key, a type of key that we do not support. However with its reintroduction with the 2015 model year the Colorado/Canyon will be switching to use the new GM Center cut keys.
What is the maximum weight that the BOLT Receiver Lock can pull?
The BOLT Receiver Locks are rated to tow the maximum weight for their class. For our 1/2" Receiver Locks this means a gross trailer weight of 3,500 lbs and a tongue weight of 300 lbs. For our 5/8” Receiver Locks this is a gross trailer weight of 16,000 lbs and a tongue weight of 1,600 lbs.
For more information please see our towing guide.
The pin on my hitch lock is to short! What should I do?
We offer two different sizes of receiver pins, our 1/2” and 5/8” pins, and both pins have different lengths. Our 1/2” pins are for Class I and II receivers and our 5/8” pins are for Class III, IV and V receivers. If you are unsure of what class your receiver is measure the inside width of your receiver. A Class I or II receiver is 1-1.5” and a Class III, IV or V receiver is 2-2.5”. If you ordered the wrong pin for your lock contact us at email@example.com and we can exchange the pin for the correct side.
If you are looking for a pin that has a useable length longer than 3.5”, unfortunately that is the longest pin we have at this time.
Does the BOLT Jeep Spare Tire Lock fit my Jeep?
The Jeep Spare Tire Lock fits most OEM and aftermarket alloy wheels for Jeep TJ’s and JK’s 1997 to date. Each spare tire lock comes with a 1/2” -20 threaded lug nut with 2/4” stud, and is designed to fit in a lug nut well between 1” to 1 1/8”. See the diagram below for more detailed information on which tires the Jeep Spare Tire Lock fits.
Will the toolbox latch fit my toolbox?
Maybe. Does your box have a paddle latch? We have checked most DeeZee and UWS boxes, however there are a variety of boxes out there that use a paddle latch that we haven’t been able to check yet. The BOLT toolbox latch uses an industry standard paddle latch and will work with most toolboxes that have a paddle latch; if you want to verify that it will work the dimensions of the paddle latch can be found here (http://www.boltlock.com/product-specifications/toolbox-latch-retro-fit-kit-specifications/).
Please be aware that the BOLT Toolbox Latch is slightly deeper than the stock latch and requires there to be a pin or another feature to come down and engage the latch from the top.
My toolbox doesn’t have a paddle latch; do you have a lock that will work with mine?
We are always working on designing new locks and coming up with new ideas. Feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what type of latch your toolbox has, you never know what we might come out with next!
I sold my truck but I kept my toolbox, can I rekey the lock?
Unfortunately you cannot rekey the lock on your toolbox; however we do sell replacement cylinders for just this sort of reason! You can order a replacement cylinder directly from us or through one of our trusted retailers.

Your replacement tailgate handle says it only works for Silverado/Sierra’s from 2007-2013. I have a Silverado/Sierra Classic; will it work with my truck?
Unfortunately our tailgate handle only works with the new body style of the Silverado and Sierra’s introduced in 2007 and not with the Classic Edition. If you are unsure whether you have a Classic Edition or not we recommend you compare your key to that on the back of the packaging for the tailgate handle as the key also changed with the introduction of the new body style.
Your replacement tailgate handle says it only works for Silverado/Sierra’s from 2007-2013. What about my truck?
