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..

Quick Install!



by:

Exactly what I needed to eliminate having 3 different Yakima keys. Very easy to install assuming your existing cores are "unlocked" or you don't have locks. I would have gave 5 stars however, I called in and was told that the flat key would remove a locked core - well, it doesn't.. You must go to a locksmith and have them unlocked.. Other than that debacle the SKS worked perfectly and now I have only 1 key!!



by:

again very easy to install and now i dont have to worry about it getting stollen



by:

Product was good once it arrived. However, the site showed all items in stock. I received an email about a month after I ordered, stating they were on back order. I responded stating that it showed in stock and that I would have purchased through another site had I known this. I got a seemingly automated email back that I took as a "sorry not sorry". I received the order over two months later. Terrible customer service. First time I have shopped with etrailer, and obviously my last.



by:

etrailer has the best brands and good prices. Web site and shipping are the absolute best in the business. Videos are great too.



by:

Great product, seems really solid. Love the flexibility of different attachments for different types of transportation situations. Super quick delivery from etrailer!



by:

Everything you need to add keys or replace keys. Easy to install and they worked. What more could you ask for



by:

work well but can be broke into pretty easy.



by:

Great fit and finish with easy intall. Now have one key for box and mounts!

Does exactly what they say

Works great. Customer service and shipping all great too.

Easy to install! Locking everything with the same key makes it easy!

These lock cores worked perfectly for my Yakima kayak rack. I can use the same key for all the locks and I feel much more secure knowing that someone can't steal my expensive rooftop car rack. So, 5 stars!



by:

As always I can rely on etrailer to have the items I want at good prices. And the shipping times are excellent. The YAKIMA SKS LockCores are of course just part of a bigger rack system I have been putting together on my 2016 Chevy Colorado. The SKS Locks Cores will secure my other Yakima Accessories. I have found Yakima products to be of high quality & stand up to the elements & abuse.Thank You for great service & products.



by:

The design of the connection seems a little sketchy to me. Hopefully I'm wrong and the design engineers have it figured out. etrailer's selection process, delivery ann installation help both online and on the phone was excellent



by:

I used all 8 for the EXO hitch swing away with two cargo boxes. 6 were easy to replace. The cargo box lock cores have to have the key slot positioned at 1 and 7 o’clock to replace. There’s a YouTube video.



by:

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.

Works as promised

Haven't used the product yet, but the customer service and support is awesome!

  • How to Key 5 Yakima Bike Racks to the Same Key
    What you will need is the part # Y07206. This comes with 6 lock cores all keyed the same. You will need to unlock the Yakima bike racks you have with their current keys, insert the change key that comes with this kit so that you can remove the cores and then install the included cores of this kit in all of the racks so that they would all be keyed alike.

  • Is the Yakima Key Set part # Y07206 Compatible with Q Towers and Forklift Bike Rack
    Yes, the Yakima Key Set part # Y07206 that you referenced would work on Yakima Q towers and a Yakima Forklift part # Y02098.

  • How To Remove Yakima Lock Cores On Old Roof Rack/Bike Rack
    If the lock cores are unlocked then they can be removed using the Replacement Control Key for Yakima Same Key System part # Y8007835 and be replaced with the Yakima Same Key System part # Y07206 which comes with size matching keys and locks. The Yakima Same Key System does come with the Replacement Control Key. If the lock cores are locked however then you'd need to drill them out or find a local retailer with a master key.

  • Came Multiple Yakima Same Key System Lock Cores be Ordered for an Existing Key
    If you already have a Yakima same key system key and you want that key to work in additional lock cores, there is a way to do it. You would need to order a Replacement Lock Core, for example # Y8771-A145 which will take you to a specific Yakima core replacement for the A145 key system. To find the Yakima key system you need, click the link I have provided and enter the number of your key system into the search field.

  • Where are the Locks on the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Ladder Rack?
    The Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack item # Y01151-58 does include a lock set to secure the ladder rack to the bed of your 2018 Toyota Tacoma. They are at the base of two of the uprights. One will go in the front set and one for the rear. I have attached a couple of pictures below so you can see how the bases are secured. I have also linked the instructions so you can see how this system sets up. The SKS cores can also be swapped out to make all your Yakima products...

  • Can I Attach the Yakima JayLow to the Yakima OffGrid Cargo Basket?
    Yes! The two accessory bars that come with the medium Yakima OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket - Steel - 44" Long x 40" Wide - 165 lbs # Y07138 allow you to mount the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - J-Style or Post Style # Y04073. The bars also have the required crossbar spread you need. To make sure that your OffGrid and the JayLow are protected from theft, I recommend using the Yakima Same-Key Lock Cores # Y07206. These cores will have all of your locks keyed alike. If you plan to...

  • Can Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier be Installed on Yakima HD Bars Using T-Slot
    The Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # Y04073 doesn't have a T-Slot adapter but they do fit crossbars with max dimensions of 3-1/2" x 1-11/16". Since the Yakima HD Crossbars like the 68" # Y01158 only measure 3" wide x 1-1/2" tall you will be able to use the clamping system that comes with the JayLow to mount them to this size crossbar. If you're wanting a way to secure them a little bit more to help deter theft then I recommend adding the 2-pack lock core set # Y07202. If you're...

  • Not sure whether to buy Y8890202 or Y8890284
    Oh my! I'm glad that was the only damage! In this case, I recommend purchasing the Replacement Cable Lock Assembly, part # Y8890284 so you can replace the endcap that secures the lock as well as the lock itself, just in case a particularly determined thief notices the damage. It does not include a manual, however you should be able to complete the replacement easily by removing the clipping pin from the side of the lock endcap and replacing with the new one.

  • Comparing the Yakima HoldUp and Yakima HoldUp EVO
    The differences between the Yakima HoldUp # Y02443-2 and the HoldUp EVO # Y02479-2 include an integrated SpeedKnob to take out movement of the bike rack, an easier system for tilting the bike rack, and the ability to add fat bike tires (up to 5" wide). Aside from that these bike racks are pretty identical in their designs. If you have fat tire bikes and/or would like the tool-free SpeedKnob then the EVO is the way to go. Otherwise the easier tilting handle as opposed to the pin isn't...

  • How do I Replace My Yakima Lock Cores to Key Everything the Same
    I reached out to Yakima and unfortunately they no longer carry the 032 core. Your best bet will be to replace your cores across your products. Using the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores (QTY 4) part # Y07204 or the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores (QTY 6) part # Y07206 will get you where you want to be with everything secured and using the same keys across all of your Yakima products. I've included the link to the video for you to explaing hoe to get everything switched out.

  • What is the Best Way to Add a Roof Rack to a 2024 Nissan Armada w/ Raised Roof Rails?
    The best way to add a set of crossbars that don't extend past the raised rails on your 2024 Nissan Armada's roof is to use the Yakima TimberLine FX Roof Rack for Raised Side Rails item # Y23UV. This aerobar roof rack has a 165 lbs capacity and does not go past the side of your rails. I recommend adding the Yakima Same Key System item # Y07204 to help prevent theft.

    Yakima does offer their SKS Lock Cores in a 2 # Y07202, 4 # Y07204, 6 # Y07206, or 8 # Y07208 pack of cores. While you only need 2 for your Clamps # 8880737 you can get them for any other Yakima accessories which use the SKS type core so you will not have to worry about having different keys for everything.

  • Will the Yakima RailBars Clear the Moon/Sun Roof On a 2018 Chevrolet Traverse High Country
    The moon/sun roof on your 2018 Chevrolet Traverse High Country most likely will not be able to be opened while using the Yakima RailBar Crossbars part # Y00435-0436 or any other roof rack of it's kind for that matter. That said, this is not something that we nor Yakima tests for because the wind noise associated with having the roof open and a set of crossbars installed would be unbearable. For a fork mount bike rack, I recommend the Yakima HighSpeed Roof Bike Rack part # Y02115 because...

  • How To Determine If Old Yakima SpaceCase Uses The Newer SKS Lock Cores?
    I reached out to Yakima but they could not find any information on your serial number. They did say if you look at the lock core and see a number printed on the lock core it is pre SKS. Otherwise you should see SKS stamped into the lock core on the outside. If this is what you have we do have the locks available with multiple cores. If you have other Yakima Same Key System accessories you will be able to key everything alike. Yakima Same Key System 2 Cores # Y07202 Yakima Same Key System...

    Yes! I confirmed with Yakima that the FrontLoader # Y02103 is compatible with the OEM crossbars on your 2018 Mini Countryman. This bike rack uses 2 lock cores for a complete locking system. For this you would want part # Y07202. If you planned on using more than 1 FrontLoader on your Countryman then the Yakima Same Key System also comes in a 4 pack # Y07204, 6 pack # Y07206, and an 8 pack # Y07208.

This will give you a control key to remove the lock that is currently in the system (as long as it is in the unlocked position) and then insert the new core. It includes keys that are paired to the included lock cores.

    Good questions, and the answer to your question is yes, locks do need to be purchased separately for the BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y28TR as well as the Yakima kayak carriers like the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073. For the BaseLine Towers and two JayLows, you get get the lock cores keyed alike, you just need to get the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores - Quantity of 8 # Y07208.

    I actually have the etrailer Hitch # e73ZR installed on my Jeep and it looks and works really great, so that's the hitch I recommend for your 2020 Jeep Cherokee. For a bike rack, I recommend the Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount Item # Y02443-2 . What you'll really like about this rack is that it can be used as a 2-bike rack for when it's only you and your wife, but can transform into a 4-bike rack with the 2-bike add-on that's included.

    I recommend going with the Yakima JetStream roof rack setup for your 2020 BMW X3 along with a Yakima cargo box. Not only does the JetStream system look great, but the feet has small adjustments in them that give you the best fit possible! For this system you need 50" JetStream Crossbars # Y00425, along with the RidgeLine Towers # Y00145, and Fit Kit # Y06031. Then according to my research you can add any of the linked Yakima cargo boxes to your roof! I recommend the SkyBox NX 16 # Y95AV...
