by:

We had a key break off in one of the locks, swapping out the locks was very easy to do. Although the product was back-ordered for several months e-trailer staff kept me up to date and offered some alternative options. I will be ordering other products through e-trailer.



by:

These Yakima replacement handles were just what I needed after one on my Skybox failed. etrailer had them in stock at a great price and shipped them out quickly. I feel like I have a new cargo box.



by:

Part worked exactly as expected. I can’t believe the quality of service this company offers. I had to wait almost a year for this due to availabilty issues with Yakima. The folks at etrailor offered a similar part to speed up the process. I declined and said waiting was fine. They regularly checked in with me to give updates over the months I waited. Truly exceptional customer service.



by:

Bought a used Skybox 12 that opened from only one side. Bought these new latches and it works like new now. Etrailer customer service and status updates are the best in the industry.



by:

Simple, simple, simple. Worked perfect, much better than trying to get the broken key out of the old handle. Thanks



by:

Replacement parts worked perfectly...saved me from having to buy a new catrrier.



by:

Very happy, i had bought the yakima cargo roof rack from a car dealer friend knowing on of the locks was missing. The other had a key but it doesn't go with that lock. I bought a set of new barrel locks for the latches. But installed them snd the latches still didn't work, so i told my wife i didn't trust those latches. So bought yours and all is good. Now i can pit it up to the ceiling in my garage. We'll probably it will stay till i die thank you. Leon



by:

A little tricky to get in considering the lock was broken in my old lock but with some force and patience I was able to get it in. Works great now.



by:

It took a very long time to get these handles (5 months?) but this wasn't e-trailer's fault. Yakima was very slow in processing the order. What I liked was Greg would follow up with me every so often and shoot me an email letting me know that they hadn't forgotten about me and that as soon as the product was available they would ship it. I appreciated the communication updates.

The replacement handles are working fine. I want to again that the staff at etrailer for helping me obtain them. Great Customer Service.



by:

Thank you for the fast shipping. The replacement locks fit perfectly.



by:

Perfect fit, fixed my broken lock.



by:

It was the exact Item I needed



by:

Fit like a glove worked awesome



by:

Perfect fit. Great part.



by:

Staff is great! Shipping was fast



by:

The handles fit good a little tough to install and that could just be me.



by:

The order came quickly and was exactly as it was described!



by:

Was a perfect fix for my Yakima skybox 18. Easy to replace.



by:

Great supplier very professional and very competitive prices



by:

My key broke off in the lock core, I wish I started with these first, it would have saved a ton of time. These are super easy to install and I love having new latches.



by:

It fit the product like it should and works good



by:

Switched cars on a camping trip and forgot my key to the roof pod. Ruined the lock while trying to pick it (yes I succeeded!).
Searched the web and found these replacement handles. They arrived promptly and the switch out was a breeze. Basically two screws per side, and the handles mount into the existing latch mechanisms.

Still working!



by:

Easy replacement!



by:

Works well, install was slightly challenging at the the first side. Worked out fine.



by:

I used these to replace worn out handles on my Yakima Skybox. The instructions are included and it was very easy to replace. Box is like new again. Due to the manufacturing of using plastic parts, the handles will eventually wear out and will need replacement. If you plan to keep the skybox for a few years, it would be good to keep an extra pair on hand for repairs. Yakima sometimes doesnt have them in stock and backordered.

  • Troubleshooting Stuck Lock Cylinder of Yakima Skybox Cargo Box 16
    You've tried what we normally recommend by spraying a penetrating oil into the lock cylinder but what you can in addition to that try is to spray the oil into the lock and then work the key in an out several times as that sometimes can free up the tumblers of the lock. Sometimes a few rounds of this with several minutes between them can eventually get it to free up.

  • Yakima Skybox Replacement Locks for a Locked Box
    Yakima's control key is not compatible with the locks on the SkyBox SuperLatch. You'll need to order new latches, available as part # Y8880348, which will include new locks and keys, and have a locksmith drill out the old locks, as they are not able to be removed when locked. This will enable you to remove the existing latch and replace with a new latch pair.

  • Gaining Access to Yakima SkyBox with Broken Key Stuck Inside Lock Core
    Your best option for replacing the SuperLatch Handle Assemblies # Y8880348 on your Yakima SkyBox will be to try and remove that broken key. What I recommend doing is purchasing a key extractor from a local hardware store. These small and inexpensive metal tools/hooks can be used to fish out the metal key piece that's stuck inside the core. Once you have the key removed it's just a matter of obtaining a replacement so you can unlock the box and replace the latches if needed. If you can...

  • Replacement Locking Handle Latch For Yakima Skybox
    I reached out to my contact at Yakima and they were able to cross-reference the serial number. The Replacement SuperLatch Handle Assemblies for Yakima SkyBox Rooftop Cargo Boxes - Qty 2 # Y8880348, will be the correct replacement for your Skybox. You have one of the first production runs with that latch, so it most likely was manufactured in 2009.

  • Replacement Lock for a Yakima Skybox Roof Cargo Box
    Usually this break is related to a pin inside the locking mechanism breaking. You can switch sides by removing the locking mechanism and just switching the parts individually. However, this does mean that the box is overall less secure. You may want to purchase a lock replacement as part # Y8880348 which will replace both sides.

  • Replacement Handle For 2009 Yakima Skybox
    Right around the time you bought your Yakima Skybox, Yakima changed the style of the handle. The newer style that looks like a wing or a toilet flush handle, does have a replacement part. It is the Replacement SuperLatch Handle Assemblies for Yakima SkyBox Rooftop Cargo Boxes - Qty 2, # Y8880348. If you have the older style that doesn't look like the wing, unfortunately they discontinued it and it is not available as a replacement part. It is not interchangeable with the new style handle...

  • Troubleshooting Yakima Lock Core that Won't Accept Key
    If the lock core is not accepting the key the problem lies with it and not the latch like part # Y8880348. If you can get the flap of the core to slide up you would want to use a spray lubricant like WD-40 and use the straw of it to direct the lubricant into the lock core. Let the core sit for a few minutes and try again. After doing this a couple time it should free up the lock core and allow the key to slide in. If it still doesn't want to turn you would want to insert the key several...

  • Replacement SuperClamps for a Yakima SkyBox

  • Opening Handle On Yakima SkyBox 16 With The Key Cylinder Removed and The Handle Wont Open
    With the lock cylinder removed you will be able to see the hole that the lock protrudes into. This piece should move inside the handle to allow that locking mechanism to either lock the handle or release the handle. If it will not move you may try some WD40 on the mechanism to see if it will break free and allow you to open the handle. If the mechanism spins freely with no resistance it is likely that it is damaged and not engaging the lock properly. If this is the case you will have...
