New Hitch Pin - Bolt by Stattec

As I changed tugs i have decided its a good time to replace some old gear.
Looking for a locking hitch pin that doesn't require me to carry yet another key - was hoping to find a tumbler type (keyless) but haven't been able to find one - anyone know of a make of one?

I did find one called BOLT by Stattec - 5/8" Hitch Pin, that apparently can be set to use with your tugs main key.

Wondered if anyone had used one and could report on how well its worked.

I like this system, Thanks Carol. I seem to collect an ever increasing number of keys, it gets so confusing. They are a little expensive but something to consider.

Yup the price is up there - thus was kind of hoping someone had found a tumble programable one for less.

Already have way to many different keys - truck, trailer, bike racks, coupler, truck canopy....

My low-tech key reduction scheme includes this kit: keyed-alike coupler, ballmount, and security locks. I bought it some time ago at Cabela's, but it's available online, too.

Fits both 1-1/4 and 2 inch couplers, too, unlike many other such locks.

I have the BOLT hitch lock and am quite happy with it. My Ford ignition key fits it. You can also get BOLT padlocks.

How long have you had it and is it standing up to road grim etc?

I'm with Carol, I wanna know too! I've been following some threads on other forums... but want to know if the BOLT is working for all molded towable owners. Some of those other forums... gosh they have a bunch of hatches, tugs, etc. I'm simple... will it work for me?

Bolt hitch lock

I've had it for 3 or 4 years. The hitch lock has a rubber flapper arrangement that seals off the tumblers fairly well. Never had a problem with dirt or mud yet.
Also, the BOLT Co. offers a lock that fits one brand (I forget which one, maybe Dee Zee) of truck tool boxes. You just replace the paddle latches with theirs, and your ignition key fits it.
