About Us

null

Through the years many ideas have been utilized to prevent theft of and/or entry into a vehicle. There have been keyed ignition switches, keyed door locks, ignition by-pass switches, audible and visual alarms, steering wheel locks, brake locks, steering column locks, transmission locks, wheel locks, exploding smoke bombs, taser steering locks, tracking systems, etc.

So why are vehicles owners who buy and try these solutions still being targeted? Why are the same number of vehicles (with security systems) still being stolen every year even with all the advances in technology?

Convenience Factor

null
  • The Convenience Factor is probably the most crucial and most ignored aspect of vehicle security. How convenient is the security system or device to the owner of the vehicle? A vehicle owner will, at some point, simply stop using an inconvenient system or use it only sometimes.
  • The effect of the convenience factor can be seen all the time if one is looking for it. Have you ever noticed a massive, high-tech vault door in a bank that is left wide open all day? Why? Because it is inconvenient to open and close a massive vault door every time a customer wants to access their safe deposit box. Leaving the vault door open makes that vault completely ineffective in providing the security it was designed for.
  • Another example would be steering wheel locks. We have all seen them and if we are honest, most of the time we see them in the floor board of the vehicle rather than on the steering wheel. After a while it simply becomes too inconvenient to go through the lock and unlock procedure every time you get in and out of the vehicle. Eventually, the vehicle owner stops using the device altogether, rendering it useless in providing security.

Inconvenient = Not Used = No Security.

Installation Guide

null

The following video clip is a typical generic installation of the AutoBolt SS. IT shows the front doors on a 2013 GMC Suburban, in which we deliberately mount the bolts in two different locations (on the front doors). The AutoBolt SS is compact enough to allow installation in ALL doors and where you would like it, providing you follow some (obvious) basic rules.

We DO NOT include module wiring as we would not know what module you have, the wiring requirements, nor the wiring for your particle vehicle. Please see the appropriate wiring diagrams for your make and year. Also, there are videos on YouTube regarding alarm/keyless entry installation. BE CAUTIONED that cutting an air bag wire accidentally can have grave consequences, use an expert technician for the install.

When looking for a mounting location, look for enough room for the housing flange (hold the face of the bolt against the area you wish to install) and see if the flange fits entirely within that space. Keep the bolt towards to outside of the frame to allow the ramp latch room to fit on the door. You DON’T want to mount right next to the factory latch and drill or screw into the factory locking mechanism for obvious reasons.
Often times the B-pillar, C-Pillar or stationary door are idea locations for the bolt (makes wiring simpler). However, if you are using the factory power door locks for power to the AutoBolt ( only recommended if the unlock switch goes to sleep) then mounting the bolt on the door itself would be the ideal location.

The AutoBolt SS comes with the over ride wire rope attached and is best used on cargo area doors to prevent accidental entrapment should someone be locked inside that are without the transmitter and needs to exit under emergency basis, a ½ pull on the release wire and the bolt latches into the housing and does not impede or impair an emergency
exit. Instructions are included in the kit to facilitate the assembly of the warning tag and pull. IF the AutoBolt SS is used on front doors for full protection, you can exit the pull wire rope out of the back of the B/C pillar and crimp a ferrel on it to make the pull not obvious to the thief yet available to manually override the bolt.

In mounting on some van doors, a spacer (made of hard plastic) can be used to move the ramp latch in proximate range of the bolt. Each vehicle is different and each location on that vehicle is different. We are currently looking to put a list of spacer thickness on the this site help help facilitate a quick and easy install. IF you have done an installation, we would appreciate a picture and thickness of spacer if one is used. (usually rear door).

Difficulty Factor

null

The difficulty factor deals directly with the motivations of a vehicle thief. A thief’s motivation is always personal gain at someone else’s expense while expending the least amount of effort. Vehicle thieves embody the definition of lazy. The more difficult it is for the thief to steal your vehicle, the less likely it will be stolen.

The problem with difficulty is that once a security system has been on the market, the professional thief learns how to defeat that system rendering it less effective. This is one of the reasons why The Auto-Bolt™ was created to leverage the ‘The Layered Approach’.The layered approach, which is recommended by the National Insurance Crime Bureau.
