BOLT Lock Now Available on SNUGTOP Outback Truck Topper

Bolt SnugTopMILWAUKEE, Wis. – SNUGTOP and BOLT(r) are benefitting pickup truck owners, contractors and fleet managers alike by pairing high-quality truck caps with codeable locks to boost security and convenience while reducing key clutter.


SNUGTOP, headquartered in Long Beach, Calif., offers several styles of truck caps and tonneau covers for recreational and commercial applications. The newest addition to the SNUGTOP line, the increasingly popular “Outback,” combines rugged durability through advanced composite construction with contemporary styling. It accommodates up to 500 pounds of weight making it ideal for a variety of recreational activities, and features two Suburban-style, full-length rear doors for easy access and loading-a first in the truck cap industry. The Outback also features STRATTEC(r) Security Corporation’s BOLT advanced lock technology as a standard feature.


“We chose to offer BOLT because we’re known as innovators in this industry and BOLT is an innovative, codeable lock. We wanted to include the latest technology in the new Outback top,” said Hartmut Schroeder, president, SNUGTOP. “The Outback is not designed as a mainstream topper, and the addition of BOLT makes it even more unique. BOLT was an excellent fit for this line.”


With BOLT technology, drivers insert their ignition key into the lock cylinder, and rotate the key once, which activates the spring-loaded plate tumblers to immediately code the lock to that unique key. When the key is removed, the cylinder moves into the locked position and will rotate to the unlocked position only when that key is inserted. BOLT technology, which offers durability and corrosion resistance in any climate, enables multiple locks to be configured to a single key.


“Incorporating our rugged, weather resistant BOLT technology into the Outback line will help SNUGTOP’s customers minimize incidences of theft and eliminate the hassles caused by lost and broken keys while on the road,” said Erika Garcia, BOLT’s national sales manager. “In a commercial environment, BOLT can help increase efficiency by virtually eliminating the wasted time spent searching for the right key.”


SNUGTOP offers BOLT locks as an option for its commercial line of truck caps as well as its premier line of caps, which includes the Super Sport, XTRA VISION, AERO SPORT and XTR. SNUGTOP also offers BOLT for its SNUGLID SL and SNUGLID F2 tonneau covers.


“The BOLT lock is a very popular option so we offer it as a retrofit to consumers as well as to our dealers to enable their customers to upgrade select tops and tonneaus to include BOLT locks,” Schroeder said. SNUGTOP showcased the availability of the BOLT line paired with its new Outback top at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas in November.
