Replace a missing Thule key with this equivalent part.


Shipping took a while but not the fault of etrailer


If you have a lock that says only "003", this is likely the key you need. It worked on my Thule tow trailer.


Very simple process - New keys work great and shipping was faster than expected!


Key worked perfectly for the Sears X-cargo sport SV-20! Thanks!


Fast shipping and works perfect


The item is exactly what I was looking for. It was received as stated. I would order from this company again.

On time and the right key. Exactly what I wante . Not much more to say.




Works very good.


Fast and accurate.


Fits and works perfect.

  • Replacement Key Recommendation for Sportrack Lock Core with 003 on it
    Yes, the replacement key part # THKEYN003 would be the correct replacement key for your Sportrack accessory that has 003 stamped in the lock core.

  • Replacement SportRack K003 Key
    We have exactly what you need! To replace just the key for the existing K003 lock core on your SportRack carrier you just need the Replacement Key # THKEYN003. Thule, who is the parent company of SportRack, changed the key codes from K to N a while back so that is why the number is slightly different. This key will work with your current carrier and lock core. You will not need to change out any other components.

  • Replacement Key Recommendation for Sportrack Accessory with Lock Core K003
    For replacement keys and lock cores, you will want the Replacement Lock Cylinder, # THLOCKN003, and Replacement Key, # THKEYN003. Thule purchased SportRack a while back and changed the key codes from K to N, so that is why the key code is slightly different.

  • Troubleshooting New Thule Key Not Turning In Lock Core
    If you recently purchased a new replacement key for your Thule lock then the issues you're having aren't terribly uncommon. With a brand new key it might just take wiggling the key around inside the lock core a bit to get it to turn. You might also want to try and apply a spray lubricant like WD40 inside the lock core and let it sit for a bit before trying the key again in case there's some debris or corrosion inside the locking mechanism that's preventing it from engaging. You may need...

  • Troubleshooting New Thule Key that Won't Turn in Lock Core
    With new Thule keys sometimes you have to run the key in and out a few times and wiggle it around a bit to get them to turn correctly. The problem is there is sometimes a tiny bit of extra metal on the keys that needs to be worn off by wiggling the key around. I spoke to my contact at Thule to confirm this and she informed me that this is a fairly common problem, but that you will be able to fix it.

  • Troubleshooting New Thule Key that Won't Turn Lock on Cargo Box
    Does the key turn at all? Or does it turn but not release the lock mechanism? It is not unusual to need to lightly tap the key all the way into place in the lock core the very first time you use it so that it seats fully. You can use a rubber mallet or small hammer to gently coax the key into its fully-inserted position. This usually does the trick.

  • Replacement Key For Thule Luggage Rack On 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    I contacted Thule to confirm but the correct replacement key is Replacement Key for Thule Racks and Carriers - N008 # THKEYN008 and should you ever need the replacement lock core, Replacement Lock Cylinder for Thule Racks and Carriers - N008 # THLOCKN008 would be your choice there.

  • Thule Replacement Key and Lock for Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box TH629907
    Thank you for purchasing the Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box # TH629907. I am sorry you're having an issue with a broken key. For a new key you can use part # THKEYN003. You can try using needle nose pliers to remove the fragment of the broken key. If this is not possible you will need to drill out the lock core to allow it to be replaced with part # THLOCKN003. To install the new lock core you will use Universal Change Key for Thule Locks # 853-1251 which is shown in the linked video.

  • How to Remove Old Thule Lock Core and Replace New N003 Core
    The exact replacement lock core you are looking for is the part # THLOCKN003, but you are going to have to get the old key out of the core before it can be removed. Basically what has to happen is that with the lock unlocked you'd need to insert the Thule change kit part # 853-1251 and once it's fully inserted you'd be able to then pull the core out and reverse the process to install the new core. Best option for getting old key out might be to contact a locksmith depending on how flush...

  • X-Cargo Roof Mounted Cargo Box Replacement Key
    Depending on the year of your X-Cargo roof box, the lock cylinder should have a number printed on the lock cylinder. Then you can use the 3 digit number on the cylinder to get the replacement key. For instance, if the lock core has number 003 then you would use key # THKEYN003. The older locks with 3 digits like that use part THKEYN*** with the *** being the 3 digits on the lock cylinder. If you have an older style lock on your X-cargo then you can use the Replacement Lock and Key...

  • How to Determine Which Key to Use to Replace Lost Key for Thule Bike Rack
    The universal change key # 853-1251 I think you're referring to only allows you to remove a lock that has already been unlocked. On the front of the lock face there should be a number that begins with N, like N003 or something similar. This will tell you what key like the # THKEYN003 that you can use to unlock your bike rack. If you can let me know what number you found on the front of the lock I can help you locate a key that will allow you to unlock the anti-rattle hitch lock that's...

  • Thule Lock With Code 003 Replacement
    The correct replacement key for any lock with the "003" lock core number stamped on it will be the Thule Replacement Key # THKEYN003. This key will work on any lock like the # THLOCKN003 that has the 003 key code. In order to remove a defective lock, you will need to use the universal change key that came with your Thule box- so it's not completely useless and will be required to change out the locks. If you need a new change key, you can use the # 853-1251.

  • Recommended Cable Lock For Bell Bike Rack
    The Bell Sports Rack will not be compatible with the Thule keys you mentioned. They are different manufacturers. Sports Rack is a sub company of Thule, so that is why you see the names combined, but Bell is a different company all together. The replacement keys for Thule like # THKEYN003 will not work with your Bell Carrier. To lock your bikes to your rack you may want to consider using a cable lock like the Deadbolt 10' Long Cable Lock # e98891.
