Video Transcript for Review of Rhino Rack Locking Endcaps For Vortex Aero Crossbars - RRVA-LEC4

Hi everybody, Andy here with etrailer.com and today we're gonna take a look at these Rhino-Rack locking end caps for your Vortex Aero crossbars. These locking end caps are going to let you secure your accessories in the top channel of your Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbars. And these are designed to replace your standard ends on your Vortex Aero cross bars and they're gonna be an easy snap-on installation. These end caps are the same design as the standard end caps that you're replacing but these lock cores are actually metal and they're going to install in the same way. You're just going to slide them into position and once they're pushed into place in the bar then you're just going to go ahead and take one of the two keys that are included and lock them. Lemme go ahead and show that lock in action there on the backside of this.

And then once they're locked, you can then remove the key. And as you can see, there's an indicator there. You might be able to see that. So at a glance you're going to be able to tell if these are locked or not. So we have a closed padlock there at the top, so that's indicating that this is in the locked position.

Then when you turn it counterclockwise then that's going to be the unlocked position and there's a little open to padlock there. So you can see it again at a glance that this is unlocked or locked. So then once you have these locked into place they're not gonna be able to be removed and at the same time they're gonna be keeping your accessories that may be installed in the top channel from being removed. Now these end caps are durable, they're constructed of polypropylene, and again these metal lock cores are keyed tolike. And you're going to receive two keys and you're gonna get four locking end caps.

Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (122 Customer Reviews)

This is a simple review for a simple product. If you plan on using your Rhino Vortex bars with accessories that slide into the T-Slot channel and lock down on the bars, you need these locks. They are well integrated and of high quality and they simply lock the ends of each of your bars. If you only use the clamp style rack accessories that fit around the bar and clamp down, then these locks will be completely useless for you. They are only meant to protect items that are physically attached to the bars via t-slot/channel.

As for an update, these locks have been solid and have performed as they should. Ive used my Rhino rack many times over the year and for the accessories I have that use the T-Slot channel, Ive never felt that items I left on top of the car were at risk or not secure enough. They are always on through rain, snow and everything else, and the locking mechanisms have not rusted and they still perform well. Quality Product.



by:

I purchased these to go with the Rhino-Rack SX Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Flush Factory Side Rails - Qty 4. Works awesome.



by:

I order Rhino-Rack Locking Endcaps for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Metal Cores to replace the plastic endcaps. The metal cores are firmly attached to the Rhino-Rack Crossbars than the plastic cores. The photo is from my 2008 Nissan Altima 3.5L V6 SE Sedan attached with Rhino-Rack Roof Rack system and Swagman roof bike rack. I order Swagman roof bike rack from etrailer.com, too.



by:

Product was exactly as described



by:

much improved over the ones that come with it I would purchase again.



by:

Very irritated I had to buy these when I spent over $[XX] on a roof rack. You think spending that much money they would just come with the metal cores. The plastic ones just fall off or easily come right out



by:

I wish the cap was metal as well not just the lock barrels. It seems someone could melt it with a heat source and pop the lock off. It is better than the stock endcap that came with it that is all plastic



by:

Definitely an improvement over the stock caps. However I did have an issue with one of them still being able to pulled off while in the locked position. It has stayed on though.



by:

Very nice product heavy duty steel locking mechanisms with two keys, fits right in to prevent theft.Using product to transport kayaks around.
Would highly recommend.
Thank you,



by:

If you don't want to have the plastic cores get these. They work well and use a normal key, not a round one like the plastic caps come with. It's worth the price in my opinion.



by:

These end caps were easy to install and much better than the plastic version.



by:

Fits my truck perfectly, looks really good, and was a great deal less expensive than the bigger name brands you probably know about. The customer service was fantastic and the installation video they supplied was customized to my specific truck and rack kit making it a breeze to put on the roof.



by:

We didn't realize that the racks already came with a basic plastic locking function but we feel more secure knowing that we have a higher quality lock. Having the keys instead of the plastic tool is also easier to keep track of.



by:

Great service, great product.



by:

Great product. We carried our kayaks all of last year with no issues at all. If you are looking for quality this is what you need.



by:

I bought the rhino rack rooftop rack a year ago and am very pleased with my purchase. I also added a rhino rack bike carrier to carry my road bike with me. It has performed very well on several camping trips in the past year.



by:

Melissa was SUPER helpful. I needed to replace my old end caps so I could lock in a new kayak carrier. She set me up with the replacements and they fit perfectly! Always love purchasing from eTrailer!



by:

This has been an excellent purchase. The aerobatic profile produces negligible noise at highway speeds. They were easy to mount on my 2012 Honda Fit and make it look very sporty. The black finish looks especially good. The assembly and mounting instructions were thorough and easy to follow. The locking metal aero bar end caps work perfectly. Overall an excellent product that I recommend highly to anyone needing a stylish, quiet and easy to mount roof rack.



by:

Received Rhino roof rack for Toyota Highlander, 2018. Rapid delivery, easy assembly but takes an hour or so. Like the feature that racks are easy to put on and remove, after installation of custom mounting brackets. With this type of straight rack i have no desire to leave on all the time. Perfect for my application of occasional use for Kayak, lumber, doors, etc.



by:

Might be overkill, but I like everything locked and secure. I think it is a worthwhile upgrade for the plastic locks that come with the crossbars.



by:

The Rhino Rack locking end caps gave us the security we were looking for and is a nice finishing touch for the entire roof rack package.



by:

I love my rhino racks they been very useful and they are still in great shape



by:

EXCELLENT customer service! I was missing rubber strips on the cross bars and etrailer responded quickly and sent me the missing parts.
would definitely buy and recommend this company, A+!!!



by:

I just received the cross bars and locks they are very light weight and sturdy looking. I forgot to order the feet to mount them. I just ordered the feet and I am sure that the rack will meet the standards I expect. I will review when I mount them.



by:

Exactly what I requested. I have purchased several times from etrailer and have been pleased with everything from timely arrival to exactly what I was hoping for.

  • Can Plastic Lock Cores on Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars Be Removed
    Are you talking about the plastic lock cores that came on the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars you purchased from us about a year ago? The plastic "locks" are really just in place to help keep the end caps from flying off of the crossbar during travel. I'm sure you can punch out the lock core but then that defeats the purpose. If the plastic tab on the inside that "locks" the end cap into place is damaged then you can replace your end caps with the same plastic locks as part # RRVA-SEC4...

  • Recommended Ski Rack for Hard Tonneau Cover Installation on 2018 Ford F-150 6.5 Foot Bed
    For your ski rack, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Locking - 3 Skis or 2 Boards # RR573. Both of these carriers connect to the top channel rail of crossbars for a really clean look and additional security. You can also use metal locks # RRVA-LEC4 to further secure your system. I've also attached our roof box options that many have ski lengths compatible if you want to further protect your skis or have the option of other cargo. You will want to pay attention to...

  • Can Thule Lock Cylinders be Used for a Rhino-Rack Product
    The Thule cores are unique same as the Rhino-Rack cores are unique so they aren't interchangeable. If you're needing to add locks to the ends of your Vortex Aero Crossbars you can do so with the Kit # RRVA-LEC4. Rhino-Rack has some other locking accessories so if you were looking at something else just let me know and I'll see if they make replacement locks for it.

  • Replacement End Caps For Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars
    We do indeed offer replacement end caps, part # RRVA-SEC4. These caps actually secure using an included universal key. If you wanted end caps that secured using a uniquely keyed lock, use part # RRVA-LEC4. Either way, the caps would secure into place, with no worry about them coming loose.

  • End Cap Will Not Stay In Vortex Aero Crossbar
    It sounds like there is either a defect with the end caps or they have been damaged. In any case they would need to be replaced. If they are defective you can either reach out to the manufacturer or vendor directly for a replacement or if they were damaged by the end user you would need to replace them yourself using the Rhino-Rack Secure Core Endcaps part # RRVA-SEC4. There is also an option for metal locks, the Rhino-Rack Locking Endcaps for Vortex Aero Crossbars part # RRVA-LEC4 which...

  • How Long Is The Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars
    The Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 65 inch Long - Qty 2 # RRVA165B-2 are 65 inches with the endcaps already attached. Now if you upgrade to the All Metal Locks # RRVA-LEC4 it will be a little bit longer. I attached a review video link below.

  • Key Replacement for the End Caps on the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars
    I have a solution for you. Rhino-Rack offers replacement end caps with keys for their Vortex Aero Bars. The Rhino-Rack # RRVA-SEC4 will include 4 new end caps and 2 plastic keys. However, I would get remove your current plastic end caps and install # RRVA-LEC4. These end caps include metal lock cylinders and 2 metal keys. The # RRVA-LEC4 end caps will be more secure and a stronger option over the plastic locking end caps.

  • Do the Locks Come with the Rhino-Rack System for Retrax Tonneau Covers?
    The Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System for Retrax XR Series and Mountain Top EVO-M Tonneau Covers # RRVA180B-RRRLT600 does come with the integrated locks you see. Rhino-Rack is one of the bigger brand names that still offers the locks with their products versus requiring a separate purchase. There is one upgrade that is an additional cost and it is if you want the metal locks for the end of the crossbars. If you desire that feature you can use # RRVA-LEC4. This further secures any track...

  • Do Rhino-Rack Crossbars Come With Universal Keys
    Keys for Rhino-Rack crossbars such as the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA126B-2 come with plastic lock cores with universal keys. You can get unique lock cores and keys, however, by adding the Rhino-Rack Locking Endcaps for Vortex Aero Crossbars # RRVA-LEC4.

    Because of the design of the My Sky sunroof on the 2017 Jeep Renegade, there won't be a roof rack available that is going to allow you to open the sunroof with it attached; you'll still be able to put a roof rack on your vehicle, but you won't be able to open the roof with the system installed. With that said, the Rhino Rack roof rack that uses parts # RRSX100 and # RRVA126B-2 you were looking at is a really nice choice. You may want to consider adding the end caps with the metal locks...

The aero bars are great for reducing wind noise compared to the square or round bars. The Rhino-Rack system also includes plastic locks but if you want to upgrade them to metal locks you can.
