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..

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:

Great product and etrailer was super helpful with ordering process etc



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:

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.

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.

Review from a similar SKS Cores in Accessories and Parts


Everything was perfect and relatively easy to setup. Ì bought from etrailer due to the actual manufacturer being out of stock, I was skeptical when I ordered but very glad I did. Would 100% recommend etrailer.

    What you will need is the part # Y07206. This comes with 6 lock cores all keyed the same.

  • 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...

    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. This pack comes with a quantity of 8 total cores that are keyed alike and come with a change key to switch out the cores that come with the # Y74ZR. If you need a compatible 2" hitch receiver for your vehicle to mount the EXO system, feel free to respond...

  • 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.

  • Truck Bed Ladder Rack to Fit 2019 Ford F-150 with UltraGroove Tonneau
    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.

    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. For extra protection you can add 4 sets of the Felt Pads # Y08004080 (1 set per set of saddles) and then...

  • 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

    I recommend changing over to the Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00426 which will require new TimberLine Towers # Y00147 on your 2019 Toyota 4Runner. This will give you 60" long crossbars. Rola no longer makes crossbars for vehicles as they have transferred over to only carrying cargo racks and ladder rack systems. The Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores # Y07208 will provide you with 8 lock cylinders that are keyed alike. You can use 4 for securing your crossbars the other 4 can...

  • Do Yakima BaseLine Towers and 2 Yakima Kayak Carriers Require Separate Locks
    Good questions, and the answer to your question is yes, locks do need to be purchased separately for the BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y00146 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 have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well if you'd like.

  • Can the Yakima SkyRise Tent Be Used on a 2011 Honda CR-V
    According to the owner's manual for your 2011 Honda CR-V, the roof has a weight capacity of 165 lbs. Therefore, you can use a Yakima SkyRise Tent on your CR-V without any issues as it meets the minimum weight capacity requirement of 165 lbs. The Yakima SkyRise does have a 60 lb weight capacity but since the ladder will support much of the weight, the roof rack/vehicle only needs to be rated for 165 bs. In order to use the Yakima SkyRise on your CR-V you will also need an aftermarket roof...

  • What is the Best Roof Rack Cross Bar System For a 2022 Kia Telluride With No Factory Rails?
    I recommend the Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00426 for your 2022 Kia Telluride. These bars are some of the quietest bars available as they are aerodynamically designed to cut through the wind. To mount the crossbars to the roof of your Telluride you will need the BaseLine Towers # Y00146, BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06125 and # Y06165. The 2 different fit kits are needed as the front mounts and rear mounts for the towers will be slightly different. I do recommend getting the Yakima Same Key...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Roof Rack And Watersport Carrier For 2007 BMW 325i
    I first recommend a roof rack for your 2007 BMW and then a carrier that can handle either the kayak or a paddleboard. The roof rack I recommend is the Yakima Jetstream. This roof rack has Black Aluminum aerodynamic crossbars that have built-in WindRidges to help control the air flow and reduce wind noise and vibration. The towers included with the roof rack are designed to fit the fixed mounting points on the vehicle roof. To order this roof rack you will need part # Y00425, part # Y00148,...

  • Recommended Crossbars Length for Using Cargo Box and Kayak Carrier on a 2012 VW Jetta SportWagen
    For your 2012 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen you'll want to use the TimberLine Towers # Y00147 with the 60" JetStream crossbars which come in Black # Y00426 . Yakima actually doesn't offer 55" long crossbars and the 50" bars would be too short for the box and kayak carrier so the 60" bars are what you need. In addition to the Yakima RocketBox Pro 14 # Y07192 I recommend using the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # Y04073 because it is easier to install and use, plus it uses 2 clamps...

  • 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...

    Yes, the Yakima Control Key # Y8007835 will work on any of their Same Key System (SKS) lock cores no matter in which type of accessory it is installed, cargo box, roof rack or other carrier. All such Yakima items with the SKS system can have an old unlocked core removed and a new one like # Y8771-A145 installed using this one part. We also have handy complete lock/key sets too, such as # Y07204, which is a set of 4 matching cores plus two standard keys and one control key. This kit enables...

  • Is Yakima LockUp Cable Lock Part # Y07238 Long Enough to Secure 4 Bikes to Yakima BigHorn Bike Rack
    At 10 feet, 2 inches long, the Yakima LockUp, part # Y07238 is long enough to secure 4 bikes to your BigHorn Bike Rack. Two locking cores ARE included with the LockUp. If you are using the Yakima Hitch Lock, part # Y07235, and would like additional cores so everything will be keyed alike, they are available as part # Y07204 for 4 cores, part # Y07206 for 6 cores or part # Y07208 for 8 cores.

  • How To Carry Two Kayaks On a 2019 Subaru Outback
    In order to carry two kayaks on a 2019 Subaru Outback you are first going to need to start with a roof rack for which I recommend using the Yakima JetStream Crossbar System part # Y00425, part # Y00148, and part # Y00241. The Yakima JetStream Crossbar System has aero shaped crossbars for reduced wind noise, integrated channels for accessories, and a custom fit set of landing pads that install in fixed mounting points on the roof which makes for a really nice overall look.

In all honesty you can probably fit about 4 bike racks on these crossbars if you alternate the way they are facing. If you don't already have bike racks then I recommend using the Yakima FrontLoader # Y02103 if you want to keep the front wheel on or the Yakima HighSpeed # Y02115 if you're looking for one where you take the fornt wheel off.
