Replacement Key for a Karrite Roof Mount Cargo Box

Question:

I have a Karrite roof top box sold by sears in the mid 90s and am missing the keys. The lock cylinders are numbered 197 with no letters. Will the Thule N197 key fit?

Helpful Expert Reply:

If any key will fit, it will be Thule replacement key # THKEYN197. Some times, there isn't a letter in front of the number on a key/lock and the replacement keys will still fit. We haven't tested the key on a Karrite box but we have had customers purchase the Thule replacement keys and they have worked on Karrite boxes so it is likely to work.

One tip I can offer is that when a new key is used on an older lock some times it will not seat all the way in the lock at first. You have to gently persuade it in by tapping on the key with a mallet to get it to seat all the way.
