Shadow Guard Gladiator To Feature BOLT Locks At SEMA

BOLT Locks will spotlight the “Shadow Guard” Jeep Gladiator show vehicle in its SEMA Show booth #60177 located in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from November 2-5, 2021 as part of the automotive aftermarket’s biggest annual event. Created by Dave Doetsch of Doetsch Off-Road in Chandler, Arizona, the one-of-a-kind project truck is designed to be a dynamic mix of rock crawler and overlander that features BOLT’s “One-Key Lock Technology” for securing gear on and in the Jeep.

BOLT locks are used throughout the vehicle to keep gear and valuables safe with the company’s exclusive one-key convenience. All BOLT locks are quickly programmed the first time the ignition key is inserted into the BOLT lock cylinder. Once the key is inserted, spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down, uniquely coding the cylinder to that specific key. Special security features on the tricked-out Jeep Gladiator include a BOLT JL/JT hood lock, BOLT padlocks, and cable locks, as well as Locking Recovery Hooks, featuring BOLT’s integrated locking cylinders.

High-impact vinyl graphics wrap the Gladiator in satin black and are the inspiration for the vehicle’s name. The custom 3M vinyl finish mimics “Shadow,” while the “Guard” conveys BOLT’s ability to secure your possessions with superior lock technology.

“Doetsch’s Shadow Guard project truck brings BOLT One-Key Lock Technology together with custom design to demonstrate the possibilities for taking any Jeep to the next level in looks and secure storage,” said BOLT’s Sales Account Manager Jason Buckles.

  • BOLT Cable Locks are made from six-foot by 1/4-inch coiled cable. They feature an automotive-grade lock shutter to keep out weather and debris and a six-plate tumbler sidebar that prevents picking and bumping.
