The control didn’t work. Info I read said it might not. The key fit but would not unlock the Yakima swing out bike rack. I’ll have to try something else, not sure what before it gets expensive. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks


Comments
This control key will allow you to remove unlocked Yakima lock cores for replacement or to read the side of the lock core to get a key number. Unfortunately if the lock core is in the locked position the only way to remove the lock core is to drill it out and replace it with new Yakima lock cores such as part # Y07202
Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores (QTY 2)
$40.00
for a quantity of 2 or part # Y07204
Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores (QTY 4)
$60.00
for a quantity of 4.

Terrific! I needed a matched set of Yakima keys with a specific key number. etrailer offered the ability to buy a specific key number which was terrific.

I bought a Yakima Space Cadet cargo box at a garage sale for $20 but it did not have the keys. Bought the control key to remove the cores so I could find the code to get replacement keys. I could not believe how easy it was. Just insert the control key and the core pulls out.

I got a Yakima Q Tower from marketplace and the owner lost the key and a few other small parts. I was able to get this control Key and find the key core number to order my new key. I would definitely recommend This product!

Great service and delivered a day early. I was able to key all my Yakima to the same key. Very easy to do just follow video instructions from Yakima online.

Easy to use worked great. You need this if you are installing a new Yakima lock or removing one. Not much to it.

I needed to mount racks on my new topper. Though pricy, Yakima products are so well engineered it's worth it. Wish there was not such a long wait for back-ordered products, but that's not the fault of etrailer.com. Etrailer.com service is great. I especially like the instructional videos.

This blank, enables you to remove the lock from the rack. Works great.

Not sure where I put it. But if I ever need one again, I would get it from trailer. Great customer service. Knowledgeable and helpful. If you aren’t sure if you are getting the right part, call them, they will make sure you get the right stuff. So many companies these days are not good at answering the phone, or knowing their products, especially something small or inexpensive. These guys took a good deal of time with me, despite the fact it was for a very small order.

I have purchased more items than I can remember over the last 10 years or so from etrailer, Ride Right Helper springs, various trailer wiring connectors, Curt trailer hitches, Rola Roof Racks, duplicate keys that I had to order to replace keys that I lost, heck, I'm retired and am always out camping or putting together some new camper. etrailer customer service reps have always been the most efficient, knowledgeable and helpful whenever I have placed an order or had any followup questions with an order. That great and efficient service, high quality products as well as fast shipping and best pricing has kept me a reliable and steady customer over the years. Never had a problem with etrailer service or product. What more can I say? I really like efficiency! So 5 Stars Plus for this long time overdue review for anyone who is thinking of ordering from etrailer, you can buy here with confidence!

So I cleverly lost one of those. I don't even know its name, just that I lost it. It's the lock that goes on the trailer hitch pin to prevent removing the bike rack. Easy to lose, but that's Yakima's fault, not etrailer's. I've dealt with etrailer before and have been completely happy, but I could not find this part on etrailer, just an entire kit. I emailed them and described what I needed and they got right back and said sure, and now it's got its own listing on our website, and gave me a link. They pointed me to the part, a new lock core and a master key. I ordered the parts, got a quick delivery, and the new lock core and rekeying was push pull click click. I am a happy customer!

This key makes it super easy, simple and quick to change the lock cores on any Yakima SKS lock. The lock core must be UNLOCKED for the control key to work. Just insert the control key into the unlocked core then carefully pull out the core using the key at the same time grasping the core. The new core is simply pushed into the empty lock hole.



- Y8007835

Worked flawlessly on my daughter's Yakima cargo box. She lost her keys and the only way to find out what model number the core is is to remove it from the box to see what number is stamped on the side. Core popped out in about 1 second after inserting the control key. Worth its weight in gold and Etrailer was the cheapest place I found to order it from. We have ordered new keys from Etrailer as well.

I ordered the Yakima replacement control key late one night. By 10:00 a.m. the next morning I had already received an email from George letting me know my key had shipped. The email included a tracking number so I could track the package. The key arrived within a few days and worked perfectly. I then ordered a couple of replacement keys for my Yakima cargo carrier and they should arrive within the next few days. Great job etrailer.com!



- Y8007835
by:

I got an old cargo box for twenty bucks, and cleaned it up on my own. I did not have keys and called to find new locks etc, and had seen similar stuff on line for $35 to $100. They walked me through ordering this key, and finding out the lock numbers. I have now ordered the appropriate keys, and I have the insides from four locks and I only need two. I spent $15 instead of $50 or so (including delivery) Great service!



- Y8007835
by:

It worked as it suppose to, allowing removal of the lock core for local rekeying.



- Y8007835

Worked like a charm! Thankfully the rack I bought was already unlocked so I was able to use this key to remove the core and get the SKS number. Fast and easy shipping thank you!

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Key for Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack
    There won't be a key code on the face of the lock core, but if the core is in the unlocked position then you can use the Control Key # Y8007835 to remove the lock core and then see what code is on the side of the barrel. For a circular key you will use the part "Y8873-XXX" in our search bar but for a rectangular key you will use part "Y8772-XXXX" instead. The Xs are whatever code you find on the lock core.

    You can locate the lock number on the side of the lock cylinder on Yakima locks. As long as the rack is unlocked you can use the control key # Y8007835 to remove the lock to see the number. With that number we can get you the right replacement key. Replacement Key # Y8772-A133 is an example for locks keyed with lock number A133. If the rack is locked then you can see if a locksmith can unlock it. Otherwise the lock will have to be drilled out.

    The only way to remove a Yakima SKS lock core without damaging the core is with the control key. If you lost the control key, we offer a replacement key as part # Y8007835.

    If your existing locks have a working key, the key number should be stamped into the key, and the necessary key number will be stamped or engraved on the side of the lock, as shown in the photo I provided.

    Your Yakima Control Key # Y8007835 will allow you to remove a Yakima Same-Key-System (SKS) lock core only if it is unlocked. The same is true for the equivalent part from Thule, their Universal Change Key # 853-1251, which can remove a Thule/SportRack lock core such as # THLOCKN140. The reason that these control/change keys only work on unlocked locks is security. If these special keys allowed you to remove any Yakima or Thule lock core even if locked then there would be little benefit...
