Replace a missing Thule key with this equivalent part.


The replacement key worked for my Pep Boys Voyager XL carrier! I got the number off the carrier's lock, which I lost the keys on. Base on that number I ordered the replacement key.


The replacement key I ordered for my Sportrack cargo carrier worked perfectly! Such a relief and convenient. All I had to do was match it to the number on the carrier lock.


Amazing! Who thought I’d ever find this key for an old car top carrier. Website and service were great.


It worked !!!


did the job, unlocked the lock, pricey tho


Great service!


The keys do not work. The key and the lock are 2872. It is a Karrite Voyager carrier

I have a solution for you but because the Karrite carriers are now obsolete you will need to replace your lock core using the change key, item # 853-1251
Universal Change Key for Thule One Key Locks
, to an upgraded Thule core like item # 1500004217

-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 10/21/2021


Product was delivered early and was exactly what we ordered. Couldn’t have asked for better service.


The perfect fit for our Sears Sport 15 Cav lock!


After doing the research to find new keys for our Sears 20-SV cargo carrier, we bought the set from etrailer that matched the lock number because the people running the site seemed to say they would work in the lock and you can’t get them from Sears anymore. THEY DO NOT WORK. Looks like we’ll be adding an external hasp and padlock to our carrier.

Thule tells us that the replacement keys are a tiny fraction of an inch shorter than the originals, so on the Sears 20-SV boxes, its sometimes necessary to seat the key a little deeper in the lock cylinder to get the key to link up correctly with the tumblers. Giving the end of the key a rap with a mallet not a hammer will fully seat the key. You should only need to do this once.

I chose an incorrect replacement key from this company but when I called to figure out why, they directed me to the correct one, which worked. They provided great customer on the phone and through email. I almost never write reviews but in this case I highly recommend them.


We needed a replacement key for a cargo carrier. had exactly what we needed and shipping was fast.


When I couldn't find the keys for my cargo box, I found etrailer. Their service was fast and I was updated continuously as it made it's way to me. It was delivered on time and worked great.

The key I bought from etrailer worked. This was for a [competitive retailer] roof top luggage carrier. We had not used it for 6-8 years and had no idea where the key was. The replacement key which came in 3 days by first class US mail. I used the 4 digit code on the lock to order the correct key.


I have a sportrack, that attaches to my SUV roof rack, I lost the key so I decide to order this key on line after doing numerous research but the key ended up didn't open my roof rack so it's a waste of money and xxpensive, I ended up drilling the lock out to open it.


I had an old Karrite cargo carrier given to me and needed a spare key. Perfect match for my spare. I previously used etrailer to help me find hardware to attach the carrier to my roof rack. Couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend etrailer.


Etrailer was great. I visited two different locksmiths to make a key for my cargo carrier, but they couldn't do it. I should have checked online first. Etrailer made it very easy to find my key. Their price can't be beat, and the key arrived very quickly and worked perfectly!


Went on vacation 9 hours from home and left key home and no house sitter or anyone to mail it.
Tried local trailer stores and locksmiths to no avail, was able to get a locksmith to open it and than ordered a replacement from etrailer and they shipped it the same day and was received three days later with regular shipping.
Key was perfect fit and order process was painless.


E came through with Replacement key for my old and trusty Sears X-cargo20 rooftop carrier. I never realized it was a Thule designed device and when my 2nd key broke I figured it was done.


Replacement key for a Sears Xcargo 18 cf rooftop box. Key worked like a charm. Shipped quickly over Christmas so we could use it on the back half of our trip. Thanks Etrailer!


I was very happy with the responsiveness of representatives. We realized that our cargo carrier keys were missing a few days before my husband and son were going to head out on a fishing and camping trip. We contacted that evening about obtaining obtaining a replacement key in a hurry and we got an email response almost immediately. The representative was polite and helpful. The replacement key was shipped shipperarrivedout the next morning, morning and it arrived yesterday-a day before the planned fishing trip. I can tell you that it works as good as the original key. It has been a pleasure doing business with this very professional company!


My neighbor had a 15 year old car top cargo box but no key, just a number on the lock. had the key in stock and I had it a few days later. It's a great site for repair parts and recommend it highly. Exceptional service!
