    Keep Your Boards Safe!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Picked these up because I bought some racks second hand and did not have the keys to lock them. These are super easy to install and literally pop right in. I have to take away a star because the first pair I got were defective. One of the pins in the lock mechanism was missing and prevented it from locking, but the new ones work great!

    So easy a caveman can do it

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

    Caption says it all, these locks are insanely easy to install on any Yakima rack system. After spending way too much time installing my Yakima Fork Lift Bike Rack, I stoked to literally pop these locks into the rack and be ready to roll. Pack I got comes with two locks (although I only need one per fork lift rack), two keys and one blank key for installation. While this system isn't bullet proof and I would for sure not leave my bike on my roof overnight or in any sketchy place, If you have any Yakima rack for sure get some locks to at least slow down those nasty bike thieves.

    Super easy installation (literally takes minutes) and your rack system and other accessories in my case: Yakima Frontloader Bike Mount x 2 and Yakima FatCat 6 will be safe! Keep your mind at peace and your outdoor toys safe!!!

    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.

      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:

      Safe and secure

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The locks serve their purpose well. Hold up under weather (had mine in Seattle for 4 years and they still open no problem) and keep things where they should be - on your car.

      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.

      So far, so good..

        Haven't had them long enough to comment on durability. Initially hesitated to purchase because of the added expense ($35), but now glad I did because the added deterrent provides peace of mind.

        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.

          Write your question here...How do you...

          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?

          do these work with yakima hully rollers?

          No they don't. You will need to get the Boat Locker to secure boats to the rack. Currently there isn't a way to use SKS locks to lock the Hully Rollers to the cross bars. Again, the Boat Locker can be used to secure them to the rack system.

          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.
