BOLT Lock Partners with Monster Hook to Introduce an Exclusive Swivel Hook
BOLT Lock has teamed up with Monster Hook to provide its unique one-key-lock technology on a new swivel hook produced in conjunction with Monster Hook. Monster swivel hooks are designed to be 99-percent faster than other ¾-inch pin shackle hooks that use a standard method of unscrewing the top in order to loop the tow strap. The addition of the BOLT lock located on the hook prevents the pin used to attach the hook to the vehicle from moving freely when locked. www.boltlock.com.
The new swivel hook, produced jointly by BOLT Lock and Monster Hook, features BOLT’s one-key-lock technology that memorizes the vehicle’s ignition key upon the first insertion and rotation. By programming each lock to the vehicle’s ignition key, BOLT eliminates the hassle of extra keys and makes the lock more secure.

Color-Changing Body Filler Wins Top Award at SEMA Show
ITW Evercoat’s OPTEX™ Color Changing Body Filler received the Best New Product award in the collision repair/refinish product category at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The OPTEX body filler changes color from pink to green as it dries, giving the body shop tech a visual indication that the filler is properly catalyzed and ready to sand.
The visual cue takes the guesswork out of the repair process as the body tech doesn’t need to rely on time or feel to know the repair is dry, thus increasing shop productivity. ITW Evercoat offers a collection of professional-grade body shop and detailing products. www.evercoat.com.
The unique characteristics of the OPTEX Color Changing Body Filler allow a body shop tech to know when the filler is properly catalyzed and ready to sand.
