Replacement Key & Lock For Yakima Control Towers  


I purchased a truck cap with Yakima control towers that lock.. The previous owner did not provide a key for the locks.. is there a specific key for these, perhaps a master or a few different options.. please let me know my best option


Expert Reply:

If the locks on your Yakima Control Towers are currently unlocked then you are able to remove the lock cylinders with a control key # Y8007835 and retrieve the lock number which will be on the side of the lock cylinder. That way I can help you get Yakima replacement keys such as # Y8772-A152. Let me know if you get the lock number and I will get you the correct replacement key.

If the Yakima Control Towers are currently locked, you may need a locksmith to drill the locks. Then you could remove the lock cylinders as explained above.

When it comes to the Yakima Control Towers, like the Replacement Control Tower for Factory-Installed Tracks # Y8890027, the best option is replacing the locks with the Yakima's Same Key System (SKS) locks. These SKS lock cores are available in a number of different quantities, but in order to lock/unlock 4 Control Towers you will want 4 lock cores, # Y07204.

The SKS Lock Cores # Y07204 come with 2 keys to lock and unlock the cores, as well as 1 control key that is used when installing the lock core. There is not a cap that will be installed over the end of the lock core.

I have attached an installation video that will show you how to install the SKS lock core. The installation instructions are also attached for you.
