Autobolt SS

Iíve been trying now for a few weeks to contact the Autobolt SS people via phone and emails. Iíve left multiple messages and sent numerous emails to everyone listed on their website. No answers at all. I have a few question but am now leary of purchasing them as I donít even know if they are still in business. Can anyone shed light on that company and product?

This is what I have from 2018 (see below).
Received the bolts and had them installed.
Installation was way more than the company estimated, but there was no experienced installer in our area.
The bolts work well though, we are happy with the reduced risk of break-in.

Sent emails to both those. I feel like they are either out of stock, or out of business.

I have called that number and 8621 multiple times. It is too bad, seems like a good product. Anyone have experience with an alternative?

That is disappointing news about The Auto Bolt products---I emailed Greg a few weeks ago after reading they had introduced a newer version than ones I'd bought back in 2008. I did quickly receive a reply so not sure what's happened since.

The Auto Bolt is a unique design and to my knowledge there's no one else offering anything similar. I did install deadbolt locks but of a very different design, try this site: https://www.a1electric.com/catalog/cat_dead.htm. They accomplish the same protection and if they're more readily available might be one of a few choices.

Those locks are probably a bit more challenging to install for most people but its not an insurmountable process. I've done it three times now and each time gets relatively "easier" I guess. The only really important thing is aligning the lock bolt with the receiver point in the opposing door.

Should you go that route I could better detail the installation perhaps.

HTH

I did get an auto reply one time to an email, other than that nothing. I have looked at the a1electric, but was hoping something would come of the autobolt as it does look like a finished product.Thanks JWA, might take you up on those instructions.
