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 8) - Y07208

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (375 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?

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:

The Yakima products are doing great. Just got home yesterday from a 18 day trip using them in Michigan's upper peninsula. Love them. Great products. Thanks again.



by:

The bars along with the kayak carriers (Y04073) worked perfectly. Easy to install. The lock system (Y07208) keeps the carriers and the bars secure. The kayak carriers are easy to take off to reduce noise. The bars stay on all the time and are not noticeable noise-wise. We've taken several trips of 1000 miles or more and many local trips without any issues.



by:

I can't say enough about the same key system. Best feature of Yakima products. These fit in any Yakima accessory with a lock core. Now I've got a single key to unlock my roof rack, basket and bike rack.



by:

Great system. Used these on my rack system and swapped the originals on my Rocketbox. Easy to install and was able to swap out the original cores and keys from my Rocketbox through Yakima at no charge (only postage). Now I have extra cores if I decide to get a bike carrier.



by:

These work as expected. After a year, my keys protest fight some against sliding into the locks, but a little jiggle takes care of that.



by:

Great product and etrailer was super helpful with ordering process etc

  • Is The Yakima Space Cadet Compatible With Yakima SKS Lock Cores?
    Yes, your Yakima Space Cadet roof top cargo box is compatible with Yakima's Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores # Y07208. I was able to confirm this information with Yakima. They had not heard of an issue with the control keys but be sure to try the control key included with your new locks as it could be different due to the age of your lock cores.

    In order to guarantee that all locks on your Yakima EXO Swing-Away Storage System w/2 Enclosed Cargo Carriers # Y74ZR are keyed alike, I confirmed with my tech at Yakima that you need the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores # Y07208.

  • Best Saddle-Style Kayak Carrier for Rola Haul-Your-Might T3 Ladder Rack
    Thank you for all of the information! The Rola Haul-Your-Might T3 # 59799 will do a good job at helping you to transport your kayaks with your 2022 Toyota Tundra. The best saddle-style kayak carrier is the Yakima SweetRoll # Y04074 because it comes with tie-downs, it's easy to install, and the rear saddles have integrated rollers so you will have an easier time loading your kayaks.

  • Recommendation For Durable And Easy To Use 3 Bike Rack For 2010 Toyota Venza
    A trunk mounted bike rack would be a great choice for your situation. They are a great way to transport bikes without being overly expensive or requiring a hitch. For a great trunk mounted bike rack, I recommend the Yakima FullBack 3 Bike Rack, Item # Y02633, which is a confirmed fit for your 2010 Toyota Venza. The Yakima Fullback is one of the favorites for our install and demo team because it is easy to install and use and is a great performer. It carries 3 bikes with a weight capacity...

  • Recommended Locks for Yakima Streamline System Ridgeline Towers
    I have good news for you! You don't need to get new towers to add locks to your roof rack; the Ridgeline towers accept locks from the Yakima SKS system but they're not included with the towers. You can use the Yakima SKS Lock Cores # Y07204 on your Yakima Ridgeline Towers # Y00145. The SKS Lock Cores come in a package of 4, so you'll have enough cores to add to each of your Ridgeline towers and keep everything secure using a single key. If you have more Yakima products that require cores...

  • How Many Lock Cores are Needed for 2 Yakima FrontLoader Bike Racks
    Great question! The Yakima FrontLoader # Y02103 has 2 places for a lock core to be added; one to lock the rack to the roof rack and one to lock the bike to the rack. If you want matching lock cores for both bike racks then you need a 4-pack of lock cores which is part # Y07204. If you happen to have a Yakima roof rack as well and you want all of your lock cores to match then you'll need the 8-pack which is part # Y07208.

    We have just what you need! To install the aero bar Yakima Outpost HD Overland Truck Bed Rack # Y01152-58 in the tracks of an UltraGroove tonneau all you need is the adapter part # Y01155 and you have a set of aero bars like you wanted that can slide forward and back easily in the rail system you have. The bars will be 16-1/2 inches above the truck bed rails so they won't be too tall and they won't be too low either. I attached review videos for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Roof Rack For a 2023 Ford Bronco 4-Door With Raised Roof Rails
    I recommend using the Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00426 with their Towers # Y33TR on your 4-door 2023 Ford Bronco. This rack uses aero crossbars which feature an integrated t-track for adding accessories. The Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores # Y07208 will provide you with 8 lock cores which you can use on the towers and other Yakima compatible roof accessories. These will allow you to secure the rack and your gear to the roof rack.

  • Ordering More than 8 Yakima Lock Cores All Keyed Alike
    Yakima's lock cores only come as many as 8 in a pack using part # Y07208. The only way to get two more locks keyed the same as the first 8 is to wait till you receive the pack of 8 and see what lock number they are then order two more of that number individually. They can be ordered using the lock number. For example, part # Y8771-A137 is for lock core A137

    Yes, you can have both the Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System w/ Enclosed Cargo Carrier and Cargo Carrier # Y44ZR and the Yakima LockUp Hitch Lock and Cable Lock # Y07238 all keyed alike. You're just going to need to swap the lock cores with either # Y07208 for an 8 count or # Y07204 for a 4 count and they'd all use the same key.

  • 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.

    I recommend installing the Yakima JetStream roof rack on your 2023 Kia Telluride SX X-Pro with the factory raised roof rails. You will need the JetStream Crossbars # Y00426 with the Timberline Towers # Y33TR for this. This roof rack will pair well with the Yakima SkyBox 18 Rooftop Cargo Box # Y07336 for carrying additional cargo on your roof.

  • 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...

  • Will Yakima FrontLoader Fit OEM Bars on a 2018 Mini Countryman and How Many Lock Cores to Lock it
    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.

  • Can 4 Bikes and 1 Kayak be Transported on Top Bar of Yakima EasyRider Trailer
    The Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 comes with the 78" Yakima HD crossbars. You can definitely fit your 4 bikes (as the 78" bars can accommodate 6 bikes) and you might be able to also fit your kayak but you'll want to test it out a little to confirm this beforehand. The JayHook # Y04084 will fit the HD bars (my contact at Yakima said it might be a little tricky to fit, but it does fit), and it measures 9-1/2" wide. Since your kayak will be sitting at an angle your whole...
