How does a bolt lock work?

The BOLT Series of locks lets you set all your truck, trailer and equipment locks to work with one key – your ignition key! Simply insert the truck's ignition key into the BOLT lock, turn it once and the lock mechanically and permanently learns the key code. But convenience isn't their only benefit.

Accordingly, what is a bolt lock?

By definition, a deadbolt lock is “a lock bolt that is moved by turning a knob or key without the action of a spring.” In simple words, it is a lock that can be opened only through a key or knob and cannot be easily battered or bored.

Also, how does the inside of a lock work? Basic pin-and-tumbler locks have several spring-loaded pins inside a series of small cylinders. When the right key slides into a pin-and-tumbler lock, the pointed teeth and notches on the blade of the key allow the spring-loaded pins to move up and down until they line up with a track called the shear line.

One may also ask, can you rekey a bolt 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.

Can a deadbolt unlock itself?

No, a deadbolt doesn't just unlock itself. Ever. You could also install some hidden cameras pointed towards the door. You can even use a laptop or phone to do that.
