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..

Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores (QTY 2) - Y07202

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (377 Customer Reviews)

Life is complicated enough. Make locking up your gear simple with a set of SKS Lock Cores. Sold in pairs, these locks are keyed alike, so only a single key is needed to open everything. Now isn't that easy?


Works as promised


Easy to switch out locks on my Yakima bike rack.


Looks good, fit good and good instructi ons



Working out just fine


I ordered lock cores for a Yakima bike rack that I had previously purchased from eTrailer. In both cases, the products arrived promptly, in good condition and I installed them with no problem. I very much like doing business with this company.

Byron S.


Still use it. Still like it. No problems to report.


I received the key and Yakima racking system and am very happy with both Give yourself 5 stars for delivery and product.


Worked perfect, took a long time to get.


I had lost my key to my roofrack. I gave the guys at a called and we're extremely helpful. Pointed me in the right direction and had us on our way again. Thank you for the awesome service


They still work fine for what they are. I think it is still a design flaw to have to lock the units before being able to take the keys out. But that's a manufacture problem not a problem with the cylinders themselves.
Still may be priced a bit high for what the generics sell for, the quality may be worth it. I haven't bought the generics.


Work just right in my Yakima racks.



Still right!


Great service, walked me through on the phone and got what I needed in 10 days.


Work as intended. Don't like these locks not being included with the racks. The prices you pay for a rack it should include the security side as well. That's why I am only leaving 3 stars.


The keys were delivered very quickly and i was able to replace the lock on my cargo unit. The instructions in were very clear and it only took a few minutes to switch out the locks.


Quick shipping, product on point! Easy instructions, took like 30 seconds to replace two locks! Super quick and easy!


A must have for roof rack operations. I have the Jaylow Kayak Carrier and being able to lock it down is essential.


Great purchase. Much better connection than the original and no hassle on threading a connection.


I had a problem with the lock set that comes in two. Out of stock. So we where able to use two single locks. And two single keys plus the master insertion key. Great customer service. Fast delivery.


It fit my Yakima Skybox 16.


Installation was quick and easy after I figured out black plastic plug was on the rack and not the lock core!


Product works. Came in a timely manner. I have done business with e trailer several times now and am very satisfied


Just a simple way to lock the forks down to inhibit an opportunistic crook who wants a bicycle. A determined crook with tools could always figure a way. Also, it provides a way of preventing an accidental release of the skewer pressure.


Accurate, precise and just as described. Installation was easier than expected and quick.


The replacement locks for my Yakama SpaceCase work great. Easy to replace. I'm very happy with the results of this transaction.


a must have,unless you want to remove bike carrier from car every time you use it to prevent theft.


Product was delivered and received as promised. This is my third purchase from without incident.


My order showed up quicker than expected. The directions for replacing the key cores was 100% spot on and took about two minutes to complete.
Thank you etrailer folks!!

  • Locking Mechanism for the Yakima Space Cadet Cargo Box
    Unfortunately there is no lock housing upgrade available for the Yakima SpaceCadet. However, if you have an open locking mechanism (Which would look like a metal cylinder with a plastic plug or just nothing in it) and no lock cylinder, you can purchase a kit to add locks to this housing with part # Y07202 to get two keyed alike cylinders and keys for the box, plus the change key to add them to the box.

  • Yakima Buttondown 6 Lock Kit Recommendation
    What you sent in a picture of is a Yakima SKS lock core housing. What you need is just a set of locks like the # Y07202 which comes with a set of two and you'll be able to replace those black plugs with lock cores. This kit comes with everything you'd need. I attached a picture of the install instructions for this kit for you to check out as well. Basically to get the black plug out you'll need to use a key to pry it out like in the instructions picture.

  • 2007 Skybox Pro 16 Key and Lock Core Replacement
    My contact at Yakima confirmed that since your locks are unlocked, you can use lock kit # Y07202 to change out the lock cores in your older Yakima Skybox. This kit includes the control key you'll use to remove the old unlocked cores; it also includes two new cores and two new keys.

  • Can Drilled Out Yakima Lock Core be Replaced
    It's hard to see in the picture if the lock assembly is damaged, but if the housing is okay you could install a new core with the part # Y07202. Seeing the core drilled out like that does warrant some questions was the box stolen? Did he lose the key? You might ask a few questions.

  • Replacement Lock Cores and Housing for a Yakima RocketBox
    You'll need a SKS 2 pack, part # Y07202, which will include two keys and a control key to remove the existing lock cores. Unfortunately, there are not replacement parts available for the lock housing, so you'll need to contact Yakima directly in order to replace that part of the box. If there is part of the original key stuck in the lock, it will need to be drilled out.

  • Availability of Replacement Lock Cylinders and Key for a Yakima RocketBox Cargo Carrier
    I found a solution for your needing a replacement lock and key for your Yakima RocketBox cargo carrier. If you there is no number on the lock core face, you will be able to use the SKS style lock and keys like # Y07202. This lock set will include 2 lock cores, 2 keys, and 1 control key that will remove the old lock cylinder and install the new one. Yakima has been using the SKS locks and keys since 1993. They told me that there were only two years of RocketBox carriers that did not use...

  • Replacement Locks and Keys for Older Yakima Space Case Cargo Carrier
    For your used Yakima Space Case, I recommend the Yakima Same Key System # Y07202. This kit consists of a control key, two lock cylinders and two keys. This kit will allow you to remove the old locks and replace them in one step as long as the locks are unlocked. If you case is locked, then you will need to drill out the cylinder first and then use this kit to replace the locks.

  • Locking Mechanism for the Yakima Space Cadet Cargo Box
    I have a solution for you, however there is no locking mechanism for the feet themselves. The feet are designed to only be able to be unscrewed from the inside, and a proper installation goes a long way to securing the feet against removal from the outside. If you're looking to replace the locks on the physical box themselves, they are SKS style locks. A new set of 2 locks is available as part # Y07202

  • Are Replacement Latches Available for an Older Yakima Rocket Box
    I do have an option for you but the latches are not available for the older Yakima Rocket Boxes. Therefore, you will need to remove the old lock core. The issue however is that the lock core can only be removed if the lock core is unlocked assuming you don't have the key. If it is locked you will need to drill out the lock core or if you know the key number you can get a key for it based on this. Assuming nothing was damaged after drilling you should be able to replace this with a new lock...

    The Yakima SKS lock cores, # Y07202, includes the two lock cores, 2 regular keys that match the locks, and a change key to remove/install lock cores. I have included a link to a video that, in part, shows how it all works. The video is on a bike rack but the same process for installing the locks will apply to the cargo box.

  • Lock Cores and Keys for Yakima Promo Ski Mount Carrier

She said that as long as your carrier was manufactured after 1993, you can use the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores # Y07202. This kit will include two lock cores and three keyed-alike keys. If your carrier was made prior to 1993 please let me know and I will look into this further to provide you with compatible lock cores.

  • How To Remove Broken Piece of Key From Lock Cylinder of Yakima Skybox Roof Mounted Cargo Box
    I've had this happen to me before. Removing the broken portion of the key isn't the easiest thing in the world, but it can be done if you're patient. First, flood the lock with spray lubricant so all the tumblers and springs will be as pliable as possible. Some folks have luck using a straightened out paper clip, but I find they're usually not rigid enough. I'd recommend using a dental pick (available at a hardware store) to gently pull the key out by grabbing the serrated part of the...
