2016 Nissan Titan XD pick-up owners can choose from an array of rugged, weatherproof BOLT Locks designed specifically for this new model. BOLT Lock products enable Nissan Titan XD owners to enjoy the added security and convenience the BOLT product line offers across several applications, the firm says.

BOLT’s “Breakthrough One-Key Lock Technology” permanently programs the lock to the pickup’s ignition key the first time the ignition key is inserted into the BOLT Lock cylinder. Spring-loaded plate tumblers uniquely code the cylinder to the specific ignition key, reducing the number of keys needed. This patented technology is designed to deter theft, while offering one-key convenience for the vehicle owner. Designed with an electroless nickel-plated carbon steel pin or shaft assembly for strength and durability, BOLT locks feature an automotive-grade stainless steel lock shutter; a durable, protective rubber shell; and a six-plate tumbler sidebar that prevents picking and bumping.


Termidor HP high-precision termiticide from BASF has been approved for use in California. Termidor HP termiticide is designed to work exclusively with the Termidor HP High Precision Injection System.

This injection system provides control of termites with a completely different application method that places Termidor HP termiticide in precise, measured doses around a structure, BASF reports. The Termidor HP injection system uses less water, minimizes landscape disruption, reduces labor-intensive trenching and rodding, and creates a more uniform treatment zone as compared to conventional liquid termiticides, the manufacturer adds.

To ensure accuracy and consistency, the Termidor HP High Precision Injection System is equipped with a digital onboard computer and inline mixing system. A computer-generated report provides pest management professionals a detailed record of the treatment for greater homeowner confidence, the firm says.
