Bear Proof your cooler with BearBolts. BearBolts are adjustable and fit the most common IGBC-rated coolers on the market. With our keyless bear proof lock, you can easily access your food and drinks without worrying about bear intrusions. We have designed it with quick-release technology, making it easy to install or remove in seconds, compared to the hassle of using a padlock.

Enhance Your Cooler's Bear Resistance

Many coolers in the market boast of being bear-resistant, but it’s important to understand that this label often refers to the cooler's ability to accommodate locks rather than being inherently bear-proof. The essential distinction between ‘bear-resistant’ and ‘bear-proof’ lies in the actual use of locks. For a cooler to truly be bear-proof, it needs to be secured with not just one, but two bear-proof locks. This ensures that both ends of the cooler are securely fastened, leaving no leverage points for bears to pry it open. By investing in a pair of Bear Bolts for your bear-resistant cooler, you’re taking the necessary steps to not only safeguard your provisions but also stay in compliance with wildlife regulations and contribute to the protection of these magnificent creatures.

Hassle-Free Bear-Proofing

Bear Bolts provide a hassle-free way to bear-proof your cooler with a keyless lock system. Simply adjust the Bear Bolt to fit your cooler and secure it with ease. The quick-release technology enables effortless installation and removal within seconds, as compared to the cumbersome padlocks. Be it a camping trip or a picnic in bear country, have peace of mind that your food and drinks are safely stowed away from prying paws.

Precision Design for Perfect Fit

With a distinctive flat-sided design, Bear Bolts have been meticulously tested and engineered to fit even the tightest cooler geometry. The oblong side ensures that the receiver cannot be pulled through bottle openers commonly found on coolers. Crafted from corrosion-resistant stainless steel, Bear Bolts are ideal for any weather conditions and are built to last a lifetime.

Easy Spotting and Secure Attachment

Never lose track of your Bear Bolts, thanks to the bright red-orange color that makes them instantly visible, allowing you to quickly ascertain the lock condition of your cooler. Additionally, each Bear Bolt comes with a lanyard to securely fasten the lock to cooler handles or elsewhere, so you don’t misplace them.

Superior Material and Quality

Constructed from precision-machined 17-4 stainless steel, with hardened stainless ball bearings, Bear Bolts are synonymous with strength and reliability. The receiver is machined from corrosion-resistant 304 stainless steel, guaranteeing the highest quality and fortitude required for safeguarding your coolers.

Contributing to Wildlife Preservation

By using Bear Bolts, not only are you protecting your food but also contributing to the well-being of wild bears. When bears access human food, they become food-conditioned, abandoning their natural foraging behaviors and becoming a threat to human safety. Proper food storage using Bear Bolts is essential in preventing this issue, ensuring a thriving bear population and fostering a harmonious coexistence with humans.
