I had to break apart my Yakima Kayak rack bc they lock keys were lost a year ago. I found these replacement housings for an unbelievable low price here on Ordered them, and received them in less than 5 days. My rack is back in action on my new truck, and locked into place with these new housings. Thanks etrailer!!


I Received notice that my order has shipped shortly after I placed it. A few quick days later my Yakima roof rack was securely fastened to my roof and ready for adventure. Costumer service was excellent and attentive and the shipping was remarkably fast. Thanks etrailer.


As advertised. Got a set for my newly used Yakima roof rack Q-Towers, as well as the lock cores to go with them, and they all work perfect!


Ordered lock housing, lock fasteners and vinyl pads for
Yakima Towers. All parts arrived on time. All parts are of excellent
quality and were easily installed. Great service, excellent parts,
reasonable prices. Can't ask for more than that.


Great product, lock housings fit perfect in the Yakima Q towers and are heavy duty. Very fast shipping and great communication with the company. In the future I'll definitely be ordering my parts from!


This was exactly what I was looking for and fit my Yakima Q towers.


exact part i needed - etrailer had the lowest price with shipping i could find, shipped fast too


Exactly what i thought i needed but when i got it i realized that i didn't actually need it. I though i had broken the lock housings that came with the towers but in fact i did not. I guess i will have these just in case anything happens to the other ones. Glad i could find them so easily when i thought i needed them though


Item perfectly described and shipping was much faster then expected and quoted. Great service. 5 stars!!

Still as good today as it was a year ago! ??

  • How to Remove a Yakima SKS Lock Core from the Lock Housing
    This is actually a common issue but it is easily resolved. If the change key comes out but the lock cylinder does not, the first step is to make sure the lock is unlocked. Then insert the change key. You may need to put tension on the key by pushing up or down or to the side while slowly pulling the key back. Once it comes out a little you can grab it and pull it out of the housing. I made a video showing how to do this.
