BOLT (Breakthrough One-key Lock Technology) by STRATTEC Security Corporation is now offered as a standard feature on Dee Zee Inc.’s Flow-Through Tailgate. The new Flow- Through Tailgate has an aerodynamic design that utilizes aluminum extrusions and customizable accessory mounting features.
The addition of BOLT’s patented one-key lock technology enables the tailgate to be locked and unlocked with nothing more than the vehicle’s ignition key, streamlining daily use for truck owners.
In addition to BOLT technology, the Flow-Through Tailgate also comes standard with Tailgate Assist, which helps lower the tailgate in a slow, controlled motion.
“We designed our Flow-Through Tailgate as a factory replacement for today’s full-size light trucks, said Dee Zee’s Director of Marketing Dan Kruzic. “We know truck owners will appreciate the added security and convenience BOLT technology offers.”
Each BOLT lock features a six-plate tumbler sidebar, an automotive-grade weather-resistant shutter and a larger cylinder size to ensure security. When an ignition key is inserted into the BOLT lock cylinder, spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down until they are matched to that key. The first time the key is rotated, the cylinder is uniquely coded to that key. When the key is removed, the cylinder moves into the locked position. When the key is turned again, it rotates to the unlocked position.
