I lost the key to my Thule cargo carrier. Did some research and etrailer was there to save the day. Replacement key worked perfect and I paid for two day shipping. Within an hour the key was cut and shipped and the tracking information was sent. Great company, great service! Highly recommend!!

The keys are still going strong! No issues! Thanks to etrailer and people who deliver great service. AIR POWER!!!!!

I had an older SEARS X-cargo rooftop carrier that I gave to a work colleague. I had only one key. Two would be better. etrailer had an easy peasy way to reference my model and find a replacement key in 2 short steps. Thank you, etrailer!


The replacement keys are great! Thanks!


It was a perfect fit!! Lost our ket to our cargo we have it for along time and we ordered a key and it work out awesome..thank u


Fantastic! This was the 2nd set of keys purchased and these worked as advertised. Now I will be able to lock the cargo carrier vs. using zip ties. THANK YOU.


Ordering on-line was easy and the product arrived sooner than it was expected.


Easy to use site and quick delivery


I bought a used Sears cargo box without a key. After reading reviews here, I decided to purchase a key. It came in two days and works perfectly.


Worked perfect on my pep boys voyager xl roof cargo carrier with a 2181 lock.


Worked perfect.


Works perfectly for karrite explorer. Very pleased and quick shipping!


Thule key was the correct fit for the lock cylinder. Made a second hand roof carrier functional and saved me quite a bit of money and hassle. Quick shipping. I would definitely return next time I need equipment.

After a year, the key still works. No change in review. Thanks for checking in!

I purchased this key for a cargo top carrier after the key was lost. I purchased this key because it matched the numbers stamped on the top and Presto! The key worked perfectly. A lock smith was going to charge me close to 30.00 to get a new key made and coded. I took a chance and it payed off. Thanks very much for the key!!

Working out very nicely. No issues with the part.

I ordered keys for a car top carrier. Delivery was good and it was the proper key cut. I am considering ordering a hitch for an auto I recently accquired from here also.


I had purchased a used Sears Sport 20 SV luggage car rack carrier, but the owners couldn't find the key. I searched on the website to find a solution to my key problem, and time after time I came across these great reviews on how helpful etrailer had been. I called etrailer and Mike was very genuine in helping me place the order and placing a two day rush delivery order (for an additional nominal fee). I just needed the number on the lock. The keys came within two days and worked! And my son used the carrier the very next day to attend his sister-in-law's wedding. (You see...I was replacing his carrier that I had bent!) Very easy process, staff very pleasant, helpful, and true to his word. I would recommend and if need be, order from etrailer in the future.


How does one write a review about a key? That's all we're talking about here -- a key. And not a real spendy key either. Just a $5 key.

Of course, without a key the $150 cartop carrier that I inherited from a previous owner who didn't have a key -- is useless. It can't be latched (that's how I got the cartop -- no key).

On a whim I did a web search just to see how to replace the lock/latch/closure mechanism.

Much to my surprise a web search landed me on etrailer where I found instructions on how to identify the key to the particular carrier. And how to get the number. And how to get a replacement. The number on my unit matched a corresponding number on the etrailer site, and in days I had a working key and a fully-functional cartop carrier.

I'm most impressed. I'll be shopping here again.

The only downside is the former owner of the cartop carrier who's is a little miffed because if he had known about his place he woulda kept the carrier. I suggested that he look for a replacement in here. Cuz this place is really good.


Exactly what I needed when I needed it most! Purchased a cargo box from a place that got it at an auction but it didn't come with the keys. Figured I'd do a little research on getting a key instead of drilling the lock out like they guy suggested. The research lead me here and now we can travel comfortably!

Still working out fine. Its a key either it works or it doesnt!

Worked perfectly. Thank you for all your help again etrailer!


It's as simple as advertised, and works as advertised. I didn't need much - replacement keys for a Sears X-Cargo car-top carrier (useless without the key.) The lock number is visible next to the keyhole. Enter the key number as instructed and replacements show up in an envelope, via US Mail. And they go out of their way to allow you to track shipping progress, in case you have an urgency. Nice job.


I needed a replacement N2818 Thule key for my Sportrack cargo box after discovering that we had misplaced the original keys. With a trip looming, I needed these quickly and was striking out with more local retailers who claimed to have them but did not actually have inventory. etrailer shipped the order quickly and they worked as expected.

The only drawback was that the shipping costs seem a bit high for such a tiny item but if needed in a pinch, they came through.


Purchased a used Sears Sport 15-CAV but the owner did not have a key. I took the number off the lockset (2818), etrailer had the key for a fair price, shipped it fast, works great, end of story.

Still working great!

I have had my Sears Cargo carrier in the garage for years. Wanted to use it several times, but the keys were no where to be found, so it collected dust. I was going to consider a locksmith to make me some keys, but was concerned those costs would get excessive. When I did some last minute researching, I found that made keys and had them in stock; all I had to do was match the number on the lock. Just got the keys and we are back in business!! I can now take advantage of that extra storage on top of the car and keep the family comfortable inside. Thank you etrailer!


Happy that it opened. A locksmith told us that we had to order it and that he had to make the key to open it. Now that is 1 less thing that we have to do. Getting ready for vacation. Thank You


Just the key number I needed for my Thule rooftop box. Key has held up well and doesn’t show wear from regular use. Fit snugly in the lock cylinder too.
