    locked up

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    had an old ski rack laying around and the locks were not working so I bought a new set. Had a difficult time removing the old cores but one I did the new ones went in perfectly.

    Work Well With Yakima Racks

      Unfortunately these things are sold separate and they are nice to have for your average thief who may be running around looking for bike racks that are easy to steal. That being said they aren't going to stop someone who really wants to get after your bike. Not that Yakima can help that, no one can, but don't use these as a total fail safe. For the more part, they're great though. Easy to install, easy to use.

      Keeping it safe!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      It's always nice to know that you have the added assurance you bike will be safely secure for that after downhill beer you're wanting to enjoy. Here they are installed on:

      Sense of Security

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I have a Yakima Frontloader rack on my car. The ease of installation make me worry slightly about how easy it would be to steal. Purchasing and installing the SKS lock cores made me feel just that much more secure about my investment. To me they are totally worth the cost.

      good idea

        it is a good to have a core system where you are able to buy more cores that mach up with the key you already have. I have had durability issues with them though. 2 out of the six that i have for my ski/bike rack just wont turn and thats only after a couple years of hard use.

        Plain and Simple

          They are nothing special, until you consider that they keep your stuff from being stolen. They work like they should, and I haven't had any serious problems with my old ones either. sometimes the key won't turn, but take the key out and re-insert and it has been working for 5+ years now and just bought another set for my new Yakima boat rack. works well.

          Do the locks come with the 'control key'...

          Do the locks come with the 'control key' for installation and removal of the cores?

          Write your question here...How do you replace these cores in a Yakima cable lock for a car-top bike carrier?

          do these work with yakima hully rollers?

          I already have two lock cores. Can I buy...

          I already have two lock cores. Can I buy two more that are keyed the same as the two I already have?

          Yes, talk to a Yakima dealer (like your local bike shop) and they can order the lock cores for you. If you really only need two, it'd be far easier (and only ~$5 more expensive) to order the 4-pack of SKS lock cores.
