Sometimes we need a little extra security when it comes to our vehicles – especially if we have added upgrades or modifications to them. After listening to feedback from Jeep JK owners, the team at BOLT learned that one area of particularly high vulnerability was protecting valuable engine components under the hood. BOLT’s answer was the Jeep JK Hood Lock. While nothing can give you complete security, the JK Hood Lock is a giant step in the right direction towards helping to deter theft and prevent tampering.
The new lock from BOLT utilizes their advanced technology which permanently programs the lock to the owner’s vehicle ignition key and eliminates the need for extra keys. Once the ignition key is inserted into the lock for the first time, spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down until they are matched up exactly. Rotate the key and then the cylinder will be uniquely coded to match that key.
The new BOLT JK Hood Lock is currently available for all JK models (Wrangler, Wrangler Unlimited, Rubicon, and Rubicon X) from 2007 to current. Made from automotive grade stainless steel, the low-profile JK Hood Lock uses a tight-fitting rivet system so it can be mounted using existing factory holes. No drilling is required and installation is easy. Check out the installation video :
BOLT’s Jeep JK Hood Lock is part of a complete lineup of locks specifically designed for Jeep owners, including the Spare Tire Lock and Hi-Lift mount. The JK Hood Lock retails for $59.99. For more information, or to order one for yourself, check out the BOLT website.
