  • Locks up your Rightline Gear cargo carrier
    • Steel cable secures your bag's zipper, locks the bag to your roof rack, or does both
  • Uses a 35" long, retractable cable to lock your cargo carrier
    • Pull out the exact amount of cable needed - the rest stores inside the plastic housing
    • Thread the cable through the D-rings and zipper pulls on your bag and then through your luggage rack
  • Secures any cargo bag with zipper pulls that have cutouts to run the cable through
  • Lets you choose the 3-digit combination you want for the lock - no keys to lose
  • Designed with a lightweight plastic housing so that it won't scratch your roof
  • 1-Year warranty

  • Cable diameter: 0.68"
  • Cable length: 35"

Rightline security cable looped through bag straps and luggage rack to secure it to the car roof

The Rightline Gear security cable locks your cargo bag to your vehicle's luggage rack, locks the bag itself using your zipper pulls, or does both. Just run out as much cable as you need from the plastic housing. Then loop the cable through the D-rings and zipper pulls on your bag to lock it, and through the luggage rack rails to secure the cargo carrier to your car. Next, insert the free end of the cable into the lock to close the loop. The long steel cable keeps thieves from removing the carrier from your roof. Or, to use the lock with other cargo bags, simply thread the cable through any zipper pulls that have cutouts on the tabs, so no one can unzip your bag.

Set the three-tumbler combination lock with your choice of numbers. Now you'll have no keys to lose or thieves to curse. And the lightweight plastic housing won't scratch your roof while it guards your gear. The cable lock works with Rightline Gear rooftop cargo carriers or other cargo bags with open tabs on the zipper.

The cargo bag holds alot of stuff and when you're going on vacation you bring ALOT of stuff! Very easy to use and the mat keeps cargo bag from slipping. The lock keeps the honest people honest. Shipping was fast and everything was as advertised, nice!

Just used it again this year, still a great product!

All the products I buy from etrailer.com are top drawer, quality-wise. The marketing is terrific with the pictures and “how to” videos. I am well-satisfied with my many purchases for self and others from this site, as well as the person to person telephone and e-mails with etrailer. My singular complaint is delivery, as I find that delivery times vary from two to as many as six weeks. Fortunately, I am able to anticipate my needs and am not effectively inconvenienced by delays for shipping, as I understand etrailer.com is at the mercy of its suppliers, and that it is not reasonable to expect the wide variety of products to be “in-stock”.

- RL100640

I ended up not needed to use the lock. If it is anything like the cargo bag, then it is well worth the money and a quality product.

- RL100640

This carrier is the largest waterproof bag that I found. I will be using it to transport various sundries to and from my children's college. Of course the lock will be necessary when we need to park it overnight and so no worries. The best little gizmo--the 'step stool' is ingenious!

- RL100640

We just got this cable lock for our cargo bag which we used in the bed of our Nissan Frontier for a road trip. We used this over a week long trip and it worked fine. Easy to use! Overall quality appears to be alright, although I'm worried that the retracting cable will malfunction at some point if it was going to be used frequently. Overall - worth the price!

Did the job....easy instructions. Plastic yet rugid

Easy to use and secures the saddlebag's zippers to the bag.

Ask the Experts about this Rightline Gear Accessories and Parts

  • Will Rightline Cable Lock Fit a Thule Roof Mount Cargo Bag
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled Cable Lock # RL100640 to take some measurements to determine if it will fit a Thule cargo bag. The widest part of the cable is the lock part at the end and it is 0.249 inches in diameter (1/4 inch). The cable itself is 0.68 inches (just over 1/16 of an inch). As long as the hole in the zippers is at least a 1/4 inch in diameter this lock will fit your Thule bag.

  • Recommended Lock for Securing Rightline Cargo Bags to the Roof of My Vehicle
    If you meant to ask about how to securely lock the Rightline Cargo Bag # RL100S30 you were looking at to your vehicles roof, I have a solution for you. I recommend the Rightline cable lock # RL100640 for their cargo bags that has a retractable steel cable that is 35 inches long. This steel cable secures your bag's zipper, locks the bag to your roof rack, or does both. You can even pull out the exact amount of cable needed to help prevent theft. In addition to having a steel cable...

  • Best Rooftop Cargo Bag That Attaches to Roof Rack
    Easily the best option for a rooftop cargo bag that will attach directly to the roof rack on your Chevy Traverse is the Rightline Gear Sport 2 Rooftop Cargo Bag # RL100S20. This is the best value, and I really like it because of its value; it has a unique combination of cost-effectiveness relative to other bags, cargo space, ease of use, and protection for your gear. Let's start with how it protects your gear, and we can do so with one word - waterproof. Other bags are "water resistant"...

  • What is Diameter of End of Rightline Cable Lock # RL100640
    The end of the cable of the Rightline Roof Cargo Bag Lock # RL100640 is .68 of an inch which probably would fit through your Yakima bag but I am not sure which one you have so it's harder for me to speculate.

  • Cargo Carriers for a 2017 Jeep Cherokee
    For your trip, the best solution will likely be a roof bag, rather than going with a full roof system. Prior to purchase, you'll want to verify your roof's weight capacity, and that you have sufficient space off of the sunroof, or at least not primarily on the sunroof, for best performance. The Rightline Gear Ace 1, part # RL100A10 offers an additional 12 cubic feet of space to the top of your vehicle, without requiring a full roof rack installation. This bag mounts to your raised...

  • 2002 Lexus LS 430 Carrying Items On The Roof Of The Vehicle
    Carrying cargo on the roof of your vehicle will free up the interior which can make a long trip more enjoyable. The CargoSmart Soft-Sided Car Top Carrier, part # CS94FR, does not have a naked roof application. It will only attach to a roof rack or side rails. Our optimal solution would require a roof rack to work with the CargoSmart Soft-Sided Car Top Carrier. My roof rack recommendation would be the Inno Square Bar Roof Rack - 2002 Lexus LS 430. The rack includes Inno Square Crossbars...

  • How to Lock Rightline Edge Cargo Bag to Roof of Vehicle
    The Rigthline Edge Rooftop Cargo Bag # RL100S30 is a great choice and has been well received by customers. However, it doesn't have a locking feature. Rightline does offer a cable lock # RL100640 to secure the bag to a roof rack as well as locking the bag closed through the zipper. If your vehicle does not have crossbars this lock will not secure it to the roof. In this case there isn't a specific product we have to lock the bag. The Car Clips # RL100600 you mentioned will help...

  • Mounting Tool Box and Changing to Larger Tires on Lees-ure Lite Camper
    You could potentially mount a trailer tongue toolbox like the White Buyers Products # 3371701679 to a pole tongue like what's on your Lees-ure Lite Camper but it's going to require some custom/fabricated brackets. You would need to first come up with a plate wide enough to support the toolbox base and then either bolt or weld it to the tongue. Honestly your best option to create some more cargo space for tools or other items would be to mount a small chest or even a cargo bag like the...

  • Rooftop Cargo Bag for 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Without Roof Rack or Raised Roof Rails
    Your Rola Platypus Roof Top Bag # 59100 (thank you for your purchase) requires either a roof rack or a roof-mounted cargo basket in order to install properly. We do offer roof racks, shown on the linked page, that fit your Grand Cherokee but you may prefer simply to select another cargo bag, one that can mount without a roof rack. This option will cost you substantially less. I linked our page for rooftop cargo bags that can mount to a naked roof, without need for a roof rack or roof...

  • Locking the Rola Cargo Basket to a Roof Rack
    The thread pitch information for the U-bolts used on the Rola carrier # 59504 is not available but there is an easier solution. You could just use a strap lock like # LS901 or even Rightline lock # RL100640 to secure the carrier to the vehicle crossbars.

  • Recommended Roof Cargo Bag for 2013 Subaru Crosstrek with Factory Side Rails
    For your 2013 Subaru Crosstrek, I recommend taking a look at the Rightline Gear Sport 3 XL Rooftop Cargo Bag # RL100S30. This extra large cargo bag features waterproof material, a specially designed zipper and double-sealed seams to keep your cargo clean and dry. It can hold 18 cubic feet of gear and has a nice, aerodynamic wedge shape that will reduce wind drag and noise. The really nice thing about this particular cargo bag is its versatile installation options. This unit can be secured...

  • Can an Inno Fairing be Locked to a Roof rack on a 2014 Mazda 3
    The Inno fairing # INA262 does not have any built-in locking mechanism, none of the fairings do, but there may be a way to lock it. You could potentially use Rightline cable lock # RL100640 which is designed for luggage. You would likely have to create a hole in the fairing to run the cable through and wrap it around a crossbar. This is pretty much the only way it could be locked. Inno fairing # INA262 is the correct model listed for the 2014 Mazda 3.

  • Recommended Roof Bag for 2015 Toyota Highlander
    I personally like the Rightline Sport Cargo Bag # RL100S30. I have personal experience with another of their products (Their tent # RL110995) and can't be happier with it. The roof bag can be attached to raised rails, a roof rack, cargo basket, or even used on a naked roof. In your case you'll use the 4 straps to connect it to your factory rails. It doesn't include a lock but one can be added using the cable lock # RL100640. Also, a pad for your Highlander isn't required but since...

  • Rooftop Cargo Bag for 2001 Toyota RAV4 With Luggage Rack
    There is a rooftop cargo bag that will work for your 2001 Toyota RAV4, but none that are going to fit directly between the 27" x 38" space you mentioned; there will need to be a bit of overhang on the rails, unless you don't fill the bag all the way up and you have some space to squeeze it in. The best option is the Rightline Ace Jr Rooftop Cargo Bag # RL100A50, which is 36" long x 30" wide, so you would need to turn it sideways to get it to fit in the space you have, and there will...

  • Can I Put Locks on the Curt Roof Cargo Basket?
    The Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # C18115 has U-bolts with 6mm by 1 inch threading so this would not fit the threading on the locking knob # P1030. Also, using a locking knob is not recommended since the remaining u-bolt length after mounting them to your cross bars may not be enough for a different knob. There is an easier solution though than dealing with 8 locks! You can use a strap lock like # LS901 or a Rightline lock # RL100640 to secure the cargo basket to your crossbars.

  • Installation of Rightline Rooftop Cargo Bag on 2008 Mazda CX9 With Sunroof
    You can use either the inside straps or the Rightline Car Clips, part # RL100600, to attach the Rightline Rooftop Cargo Bag, part # RL100A10, to your 2008 Mazda CX-9. It would just be a matter of preference on which system you would want to use. If you are mounting the cargo bag over the sunroof you will not want to operate the sunroof. I would also recommend to use the Rightline Non-Skid Protection Pad, part # RL100650, under the cargo bag to protect your vehicles roof and to keep the...

  • Recommended Lock for Securing Lets Go Aero GearBag 4 Cargo Bag to Carrier
    To lock and secure the GearBag 4 Cargo Bag # HCR628 to your cargo carrier, I recommend looking at a lock like the Rightline Cable Lock # RL100640. This lock features a 35 inch retractable cable that can be adjusted to length to loop around a bag's attachment point like the zipper or strap, and then around the bar on your carrier. You can set your own 3-digit combination so you won't have to worry about losing a key. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product so you...

  • Recommended Rightline Cargo Bag for 2013 Honda Odyssey With 45 x 29 Crossbar Space
    Since the Rightline Ace # RL100A10 that you referenced is 38 x 34 inches you will have to either tuck in 5 inches of material or lay them on top of your 2013 Honda Odyssey's roof rack. If you would rather have a cargo bag that fits a little better, Rightline made the Sport Jr. # RL100S50 which is 36 x 30 inches. Both of these options are 16 inches tall. Even though the cargo bags shouldn't harm your roof, Rightline has their Non-Skid Roof Protection Pad # RL100650 that you can use just...

  • Can a Roof Cargo Box be Legally Carried on a Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
    When carried on a trailer hitch mounted cargo carrier such as # C18110 or any cargo carrier, your cargo box would be considered the load on it and not necessarily part of the cargo carrier assembly. As such it would be legal provided that the cargo box is properly secured to the cargo carrier. If you do not want the box permanently mounted to the carrier you could use ratchet straps, such as # EM34420 to secure it to the carrier. Another option is to us a cargo bag on the carrier,...

This is one of our best selling roof cargo bags and it has received great ratings and reviews from our customers. It is 13.5 cubic feet to accommodate the cargo needed for your camping trips.

    The Rightline Gear Cargo Hatch Saddlebag - Waterproof - 13 cu ft - 40" x 20" x 28" # RL100B90 will attach to a roof rack, but it is also able to be used without one using the Car Clips for Rightline Cargo Hatch Saddlebag - Qty 2 # RL100605. If you choose to use the clips it will not change the roof rating capacity of your vehicle, so this may be helpful if you are already close to that capacity limit with other cargo.

    For your 2011 Nissan Pathfinder I recommend Rightline roof cargo bag # RL100S30. This bag offers 18 cubic feet of cargo space and will fit vehicles with naked roofs and with roof racks. If your Pathfinder does not have the side rails that run front to back I also recommend adding car clips # RL100600 so you won't have to run straps through the interior of the vehicle. I also recommend protective pad # RL100650 to protect the roof and to help keep the bag in place. And I also recommend...

  • Will Curt Roof Mount Cargo Basket Fit a 2000 Jeep Cherokee and Can it Be Locked
    The Curt cargo basket # C18115 does not have a locking feature but you could use something as simple as the Rightline cable lock # RL100640 or a larger cable lock such as # e98891. To determine if the basket will fit your 2000 Jeep Cherokee you will need to take some measurements of the roof rack crossbars. The basket will fit on bars that are up to 3 inches wide and 1-5/8 inches tall. And the center to center distance from one bar to the other has to be 15 inches, 22 inches, or 29 inches. I...

It will work fine on your 2012 Kia Sorento with factory side rails. If you care to you can add a Cable Lock # RL100640 that secures your zipper pulls to discourage tampering. The bag can also be used on vehicles without any roof rack by using Rightline's Car Clips # RL100605.

    To find a carrier for both the 2010 Outback and the 06 Sienna, you may have more luck with a cargo bag versus a cargo box. The cargo bag I recommend is the Rightline Gear Roof Cargo Carrier, part # RL100S30. This is a large 18 cu ft bag that is waterproof which is really nice when carrying any cargo on the roof of your vehicles. This will work with crossbars, side rails, or naked roofs and measures 48 inches long x 40 inches wide, x 19 inches tall. We also carry a cable lock that works...

In addition to those I recommend the Rigthline Gear Sport 3 XL Cargo Bag # RL100S30 to hold your gear in the basket.
