Ford Pinning Kits

During the past couple of model-years, Ford has introduced different high-security keyways for its vehicles. STRATTEC has provided unique pinning kits for these vehicles, as well as webinars and in-person training on pinning for these locks. It also has videos and links on its website.

There are primarily two new Ford keyways. The first was introduced on the 2020 Escape and also covers the Bronco Sport and the new Maverick compact pickup, among other vehicles. The keyway is an internal two-track and has five depths. Many locks are associated with these vehicles, including a unique tailgate lock used only on the Maverick.

The pinning kit that’s unique to this keyway is model number 7038551, and it covers the following vehicles:

  • Ford Bronco Sport 2021-2022
  • Ford Escape 2020, 2022
  • Ford Focus 2019-2022
  • Ford Maverick 2022
  • Lincoln Corsair 2020-2022

The other new keyway is for the high-selling F-150 pickup. This keyway is an internal two-track but with only four depths. The unique pinning kit that services the many mechanical locks on these vehicles for model-years 2021 and 2022 is model number 7041339.

STRATTEC recently released a number of products that are associated with the last couple of model-years by manufacturers. Two guides that identify the latest releases can be found at STRATTEC’s aftermarket website
