This four-pack of SKS cores comes with two master keys, just in case you happen to misplace or lose one. It also includes a control key that removes existing unlocked cores, so you can swap in new locking cores.

    Keeping your gear secure

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are great for keeping your gear secure. The ability to save space within our car when we do longer travels in our car is awesome.

    Peace of Mind

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These little locks are a must if you have any roof racks, as it is fairly easy to detention the towers/bars and slide everything off. With the locks you are not able to access the system to adjust the tension, putting your worries at ease. The installation on these is super simple and takes less than ten minutes.

    Keeps Your Stuff Safe!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I locked my racks to my vehicle, my rack to my bars and my bike to my rack! They're super easy to install as well. If you have a roof rack, these are an absolute must.

    Old Reliable

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

    Used in conjunction with Yakima Control Tower and Yakima 58 Inch Round Bar.
    I gave this as a gift to my Dad and he fit it on a Leer topper for his Chevrolet truck.
    He strictly buys Yakima products and has been buying them for years, truly swearing by their reliability and great value.
    The rack system is rock solid at top speed with bikes and he also uses a rocketbox along with it.

    Cheaper than a New Rack

      I got these for my Yakima Control Towers, because they're far cheaper than having to replace towers, bars, a roof box, etc. if and when you head out to your car to find it all missing. They're cheap insurance for your rack system parts, and incredibly easy to install. Absolutely a necessity in urban areas and at trailheads!

      Keep your mind at peace!!!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      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!!!

      Easy peasy

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Super easy to install, offers peace of mind that your rack will still be there when you get back. Well, at least it makes it harder for for someone to take your pride and joy.

      Bought locks for rail grab bars

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

      really easy to use, no problems at all, well worth the extra safety although it would be a pain for someone to try to steal them unless you are way far away from the car, but really they are a no brainer. I only bought 4 of them.

      A locked rack stays put

        The ease of installing my rack system made it pretty clear how easy it would be for some hooligan to detach and run away with it if they were so inclined. These locks are a simple way to make sure everything stays happily attached, and were super easy to install.


          I bought this set of four core locks to go along with two Frontloader roof racks. Each rack uses two lock cores; one to secure the rack to the roof rails, and the other to secure a cable around the bike frame. The best part is that by buying this set they all use the same key! Brilliant!

          Worth it

            Definitely worth the expense. Believe me, $55 for some locks is quite a bit cheaper than getting 3 new snowboards stolen while you're getting a beer at a 7-11.

            These are very easy to install, just slip in the 'install key' and press into place.

            Don't let ur stuff get ganked.

              Got these to convert to a 1 key system. Swapped out the two cores on my SkyBox and added two matching cores to some accessory locks. They were easy to change out once I read the instructions, derrr.

              I have a yakima rack system that I got in...

              I have a yakima rack system that I got in 1994, I think, can I use the lock cores from that equipment on the rail grab towers? AND will the rail grab toweres fit on a 2004 Vibe?

              I already have a few SKS locks and I would...

              I already have a few SKS locks and I would like to know if you have the A150 so I can just have one key instead of having several.

              We probably do have that specific one in stock, however...these items are chosen entirely you have a 1/32 chance of getting that one (if we even have it) if you want to go that route your best bet is to contact Yakima directly and they can get you pointed in the right direction.
