We can absolutely get something for you. There are a couple routes you can go. You can just get replacement keys and continue to use your current locks. For that you will need to identify the number on the locks. Next to the key slot on the lock cylinder will be a key number engraved into the cylinder. It'll be the letter N followed by 3 digits. For example, if the lock has 'N030' engraved on it, you'd need replacement key, part # THKEYN030. Simply substitute the 3 digits you find for the '030', and then type that in the search box on our website's home page to get the correct key. I have included a photo showing where to find the key number.

If this is not an option because you can not locate the number or there is not a set of replacement keys available then you can replace the lock cores with the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450200 for 2 lock cores or the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450400 for 4 lock cores. These lock core kits will come with a universal master key that lets you remove existing Thule lock cores and install new ones. It is important to note that the locks will need to be unlocked in order to change them out.
