This sort of thing is not super uncommon, so with that being said Thule has a suggestion you can try. What you can do is, using a paperclip, attempt to wiggle the key out while using the paperclip along the rigid side of the key.

If you have enough of the key poking out of the lock core, you can also use a set of locking pliers like # PT49FR to remove the stuck key.

If you are able to get the key out, let me know what lock core you have and I'd be happy to find you a replacement key.

However, if you are not able to get the key out you are going to need to call a professional to have them drill out the lock cylinder.

From here, your only option is for a full replacement with the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450200.
