Video Transcript for Yakima Same Key System - SKS - Lock Cores Review

Jake: Hey guys, it's Jake here with etrailer. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Yakima Lock Cores. These are going to be made for your roof rack to be able to lock into your roof. When you buy them from the factory, they're just going to come with plastic lock cores, and it's not going to secure it to your roof while you're not with it. For the example, with our SkyLine Towers, they're very, very easily removable. Just pull back and lift up and your bars are going to be gone.

So by replacing these plastic lock cores with the locking cores, you're not going to have to worry about anyone stealing or tampering with your roof rack. In your kit, you're going to get two keys that are keyed to unlock and lock all of your lock cores, and you're going to get one installation key. This is the key dish we're going to use to push the lock cores into place.To start with, we need to take our flat key and pop our plastic lock cores out. And to get our lock cores into place, we just need to take it, you're going to line it up with this hole. So right here is where you're going to see that little indentation that you're going to stick your lock core into place, where that little knob is going to stick down inside there.

Just push it into place.Now we can take the tip of our finger and hold our lock core and pull our control key out. And we can take one of our two keys that has our notches in it and lock up our bars. And you'll repeat this process for all four of your foot packs. Now, as I said, your kit is going to come with two keys. If you we're to lose them, there are replacement keys available.

On the back there's going to be a letter followed by three numbers. It's a good idea when you first get your kit to write that series of numbers down, so that you know which key is yours, and you can order them here at etrailer.Now, one little helpful piece of advice I'd like to provide you all with is, if you plan on leaving your rack on your vehicle during the winter time or whatever you might be putting your lock cores in, it's a good idea that when winter time is approaching, you spray a little bit of lubricant on the inside of your lock, not only to help your lock work properly, but it's going to prevent any water from building up inside, potentially turning into ice. I had a situation one time where I needed to get into my toolbox for a side job and I couldn't get in because water had gotten into my lock and froze solid, and I couldn't get my key in. But with all that being said, that's going to do it for our look and installation of the Yakima Lock Cores..

Purchased Skyline Towers, 60” Jet Stream Crossbars and same key system from etrailer. Also got Landing Pad#28 at another place. I wanted to use this system for my Thule Hallavator kayak lift. As you can see it worked out great.

Just wanted to say the 4 locks fit and work perfectly. I also ordered a cover plate for the base tower of my Yakima rack, again perfect fit and the new locks will prevent any from popping off in the future. The shipping was fast and free. Also the customer service was amazing. E-Trailer will be my go to in the future. Thanks.

The locks are totally necessary to keep the rack secure from theft. Should be included with the basket , but it is what it is. The all system kind of expensive in my opinion but good quality

Everything about my etrailer order was fantastic. ordered a large amount of items at once, some of it oversized, and everything arrived at my door in less than 48 hours from the time I clicked purchase. I'm pleased with the quality of etrailer and the products they sell and will definitely purchase from them again and recommend them to friends and colleagues. I'm road trip ready thanks to etrailer!

I've owned these before, and never had them freeze up after years of living outside. They are also ridiculously easy to install. Yakima stuff is not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

Great roof rack!

This was my second large order from Etrailer.com and my wife I are VERY pleased! Our first order was a Curt 5th wheel hitch which performed as advertised - so easy to use. Now we haul our 5th wheel camper and that takes up my entire full sized F250 truck bed which in turn messed up hauling the kayaks back there. I was leaning toward rigging something up on the back of the camper, saw lots of posts on how to many looked very sketchy. Rather than risk dumping our two $$$ fishing kayaks onto the highway.... somewhere..... we bought this GREAT Yakima roof rack system for the TOP of my truck cab. You see, it made me uneasy that I wouldn't be able to keep an eye on our boats if strapped to the back AND we read about many horror stories not limited to the rear bumper falling off from fatigue. Yakima Install; I'm a General Contractor and fancy myself a pretty handy guy so mounting the towers, the rack bars, and all of the accessories onto those took a total three hours. [on-line] videos very useful and follow the easy to read instructions that come with each part and you'll have NO trouble. I have to add, etrailer said it would take one week but I received the complete order within four days. Thank you etrailer for making the ordering through delivery experience so very streamlined!

I'm extremely pleased with the Yakima FrontLoader bike rack and SameKeySystem locks I purchased for my 2012 Audi Q5. The resources at etrailer made it easy for me to find the right rack and verify it would fit the crossbars that came with my Q5. The installation was a breeze. Far easier than a Thule rack I had some years ago. I also appreciated there was ZERO assembly needed for the Yakima rack. I had to flip the rear wheel ratchet lock around one of the 2 racks and insert the 4 lock cores, hardly what I'd consider 'assembly'. It took me about 20 minutes to get both racks up on my Q5's crossbars for the first time. Now that I'm familiar with the process I'm sure it will take less than 10 minutes. I'm thrilled that it's so easy/quick to get these Yakima racks on/off. There's no need to leave the racks on the car when not in use. Ordering from etrailer was quick and easy, plus the free shipping and no sales tax made the purchase here a no brainer. The only thing I found somewhat 'cheezy' was the "Free shipping count down clock" on the website. Leads you to believe their free shipping is about to expire at midnight, but it always resets, so shipping is always free. Why not just say "always free shipping" or "Free shipping until xxxx" and give a specific date/time when the offer will end and not just keep resetting it at midnight.

A bit pricey, but worth it. Installation was instant & ready. Good quality. So much easier to mount my bars and have them locked.

Now I won’t have to worry (as much) about my SweetRoll kayak rack from being stolen while I’m out on the water.

Great product and Sales Support from etrailer. I bought this for my Son as a Grad/BDay gift for a Honda HR-V which has slightly odd roof/door shape He installed it himself said the install was straightforward but the instructions could use a little improvement. etrailer Sales Support was great, I was a little concerned about getting the right parts and the return policy. Olivia was great to work with, she offered recommendations and matched the parts to the type and vehicle it was to be installed on along with a kayak mount. All the parts arrived in mint condition with no missing pieces. I'll for sure return to etrailer on future purchases.

I purchased these locks along with a Yakima Q Tower Round Bar Roof Rack system for transporting kayaks. I have had no issues with any of the equipment. T locking system is easy to install and secure. I would and have recommended this equipment and etrailer to my friends.

Used these on my 2011 BMW 335. It took a little while to get the threads to catch on the roof attachment the first time I installed them. Otherwise they do what they are supposed to do and don't scratch the roof.

Works fine with no issues.

Ordered this SKS kit for a used set of Control towers I purchased. The directions are very easy to follow and they are a breeze to install. My control towers are secure and having one key for all four locks makes it simple to maintain.

  • How to Remove Locked Yakima SKS Lock Cores on Roof Rack Without the Key
    According to our friends at Yakima, the Control Key for the Yakima Same Key System, # Y07204 will only work on lock cores that are already unlocked. If you know the key number, you can order a replacement using the page I have provided a link to. If you do not know the original key number, having a locksmith pick the locks and then using the SKS control key to replace the cores will be your best option. Once the cores are removed, you can order replacements on the page I have provided...

  • Yakima SKS Lock Cylinders and Keys
    The Yakima Replacement Lock Housings for Q Towers, # Y8870069, do not include the lock cylinders or keys. For the added lock cylinders and keys, you will need the Yakima Same Key System Lock Cores, # Y07204, to add to the lock housing # Y8870069. These lock cores are keyed the same. Once installed, you will only need one key to lock or unlock each core. The cores will include 2 keys and a master key to allow you to remove and install the lock cores into the lock housings.

  • Can 2 Yakima HighRoad Bike Racks be Mounted on a 2014 Honda CR-V
    You can mount 2 of the Yakima HighRoad bike racks # Y02114 on your 2014 Honda CR-V. Depending on how much free crossbar space you have side to side and how wide each of the bikes are you may or may not have to have one of the racks and bikes facing backwards. It looks like the factory weight capacity of the roof rack is 165 pounds but check the rack/manual on yours just to be sure. The racks will work great on the highway or on regular surface roads. To add locks to 2 of these bike racks...

  • Replacement Locks and Keys for Yakima Rain Gutter Mounted Towers
    For your Yakima towers, there is not a replacement key available for your lock. You will need to use the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores (QTY 4) # Y07204 to replace the locks on your towers. For a secure Allen wrench with the hole in the middle, I recommend checking with your local home improvement store. Unfortunately we do not carry them.

  • Non-Roof Rack Towers for a 2016 Jeep Wrangler
    For your possible application, I recommend a set of Yakima A1 Raingutters, part # Y00101. These are a confirmed fit for your 2016 Jeep Wrangler, and have individual loops on the top that can be tightened to fit your application. Unfortunately, these only come in a four pack, but depending on what you plan on using them for, this can be useful as additional contact points. I recommend a kit of SKS locks, part # Y07204, as these use a simple screw-on assembly and the locks will secure...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier for 2013 Subaru Outback Factory Rack
    The Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - J-Style - Folding - Side Loading # Y04073 will fit your 2013 Subaru Outback factory bars and is an excellent choice for a carrier. If you use the 2016 Honda CRV, it will also fit as long as the bars are under 3-1/2 inches wide and 1-11/16 inches tall. The crossbars must also be 24 inches apart. For easiest loading and best support, two of these carriers will be ideal for either vehicle. I recommend the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock...

  • Replacement Lock Cores or Housings for Yakima Control Tower Roof Rack Feet
    The Yakima lock housings # Y8870069 are what the lock cores fit into. The lock cores are what the key fits into to actuate the lock. So if you have the lock cores but no housings you would use # Y8870069. But if you need lock cores use # Y07204 for a 4-pack, 2 matching keys, and the control key to install the locks.

The linked video illustrates their installation.

  • Can a Yakima Cargo Box and PowderHound Ski Carriers be Keyed Alike
    Yes, you can change the locks on your Yakima products if they are all SKS locks. It would say SKS on the key. What I would do is get a set of 4 locks # Y07204 (there are other quantities available). It comes with 4 locks, 2 keys, and the master change key to install them/remove the old locks.

  • Recommendation To Carry 2 Snowboards and 4 Pair Skis On Roof Rack
    My recommendation for you is the Yakima Big PowderHound Roof-Mounted, Locking Ski and Snowboard Carrier - 4 Skis/2 Boards, side by side as you mentioned. With your 64.5 inch crossbars, you will have enough room to mount two of them with a little room to spare. They each measure 30" long x 2-3/4" wide x 6-3/8" tall. The large, push button system makes loading and unloading your gear quick and easy even with gloves or mittens on. The change to 6 snowboards will be limited due to the size...

  • How Does the OffGrid Roof Basket Lock to a Roof Rack
    The Yakima OffGrid basket # Y07138 has the ability to be locked by adding lock set # Y07204. The locks will install in the basket mounting hardware and when locked the basket will not be able to be removed from the roof rack. I have included a link to the lock instructions that explain how to install the locks.

  • Weight Bearing Capacity of Yakima HardTop SL Track-Mount Roof Rack Y01618
    Yakima's HardTop SL Track-Mount Roof Rack # Y01618 has a rated weight capacity of 220-lbs for the entire rack, meaning both of the 60-inch cross bars together. Each bar would then be rated for half of that overall capacity. But in actual use the weight capacity of the surface/structure it is mounted on also affects the weight carrying limit. This adjustable roof rack is ideal for installation on fiberglass or aluminum truck caps, campers, or travel trailers to give you extra cargo-carrying...

  • Availability of Locks for Yakima Control Towers
    Yakima Control Towers, like the Replacement Control Tower for Factory-Installed Tracks # Y8890027 that you referenced, can be locked using Yakima's Same Key System (SKS) locks. These SKS lock cores are available in a number of different quantities, but in order to lock 4 Control Towers you will want 4 lock cores, # Y07204. The SKS Lock Cores # Y07204 come with 2 keys to lock and unlock the cores, as well as 1 control key that is used when installing the lock core. There is not a cap that...

    We certainly do. The LockUp Hitch Lock and Cable Lock, part # Y07238 includes the hitch lock that works with your existing hitch bolt and a cable lock. The lock cores are not included, and can be purchased separately. The lock cores are part # Y07204, and are keyed alike.

  • Are Universal MightyMounts the Correct Fit for a Yakima ButtonDown 6 Ski Carrier
    For your older Yakima ButtonDown Ski Carrier you will want to use the Universal MightyMounts # Y03590. Some of the more recent Yakima accessories have specific MightyMounts that they use but pretty much anything that hasn't been made in the past couple of years will use the universal parts. If you don't already have the SKS locks and you would like to add them to your setup then you also need part # Y07204.

  • How Many Lock Cores Should be Used With Yakima OffGrid Rooftop Cargo Basket
    It is recommended that the Yakima OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket # Y07138 use four of the Yakima Same Key System Lock Cores, which you can get with the (SKS) Lock Cores (QTY 4) # Y07204. These cores will install into each of the four mounts that secure the basket to your roof. I've added links to video reviews of the basket and cores for you to check out as well.

  • Does The Yakima OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket Y07138 Come With Locks To Secure It to The Crossbars?
    The Yakima OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket - Steel - 44" Long x 40" Wide - 165 lbs # Y07138 does not come with locks, but it does offer a slot to insert lock cores to keep this nice basket safe and secured on your roof. You will want to go with Yakima SKS Lock Cores # Y07204 which comes with all 4 locks and 2 matching keys. I attached a demonstration video for the Yakima Offgrid roof basket along with an installation video for the key system. The lock cores are very easy to install and use.
