MILWAUKEE – BOLT Lock has joined with Monster Hook to provide their “Breakthrough One-Key Lock Technology” on a new swivel hook produced in conjunction with Monster Hook. Swivel hooks produced by Monster Hook are already sturdy due to being crafted from aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum, but the BOLT Lock technology will bring added security by supplying a lock specifically programmed to the vehicle’s ignition key.

Recovery hooks are an important accessory for pickup trucks, SUVs and Jeeps®. Monster Hooks swivel hooks are designed to be 99-percent faster than other ¾-inch pin shackle hooks due to the latching mechanism rather than the standard method of unscrewing the top in order to loop the tow strap. The addition of the BOLT lock located on the hook itself prevents the pin used to attach the hook to the vehicle from moving freely when locked. Using BOLT lock technology, the new Locking Recovery Hook will be the first locking hook on the market.
