How to Remove Thule Lock Core from Thule T2 Pro XT Bike Rack


My key broke off in the cylinder. How can I remove the knob so I can replace the cylinder? Or would a key extractor work without damaging the cylinder?

To remove a lock core from a Thule product like the T2 Pro XTR 2 Bike Platform Rack # TH83JV the lock must be unlocked or it will have to be drilled out. One unlocked you will use Universal Change Key # 853-1251 to remove the core.

If you can get the broken key out with a key extractor or with a pair of needle-nose pliers then you'll just need to order a new key to match the number on the lock core. For instance if the lock core number were to be 096 then you'd use Replacement key # THKEYN096. If you do end up having to drill out the lock you can replace it with an identical one (so your old keys will still fit) using part # THLOCKN096.
