I've only ordered a few times from etrailer but every time has been a pleasure. The customer service is excellent from pre-order to delivery. This is just a great company that I always look to first for products I need.



- Y8880348

Just got finished installing these, after breaking a key off one of the originals and failing to drill out the core. It took a while to get them because They were back ordered at Yakima, but eTrailer kept me updated all during the delay. I’m very impressed with their personal service and would not hesitate to order from them again.

Product was delayed by the manufacturer (months), but the etrailer folks kept in contact with me regularly providing updates. As soon as they received the parts, it was shipped out and in my hands. Great customer service and communication. Very happy with my purchase, these latches will now allow me to use both sides of my SkyBox. Thansk!

The handle set worked perfectly to replace old handles on Yakima skybox!



- Y8880348
by:

It took a very long time to get these handles (5 months?) but this wasn't e-trailer's fault. Yakima was very slow in processing the order. What I liked was Greg would follow up with me every so often and shoot me an email letting me know that they hadn't forgotten about me and that as soon as the product was available they would ship it. I appreciated the communication updates.



- Y8880348

Perfect replacements! Old handles were off and new ones on in less than 10 minutes. Quick and easy ??

OEM product which fits perfectly in place of damaged handles. Shipment arrived on-time as indicated in the shipment manifest.

The product was exactly what I order and arrived quickly. E trailer is always a pleasant experience to work with.

I was surprised that I was able to find the replacement locks when my barrel lock broke. The ordering process was v easy and when only 1 lock arrived instead of the pair a quick call with customer support got a new set ordered/shipped and a free return label. All in all a very successful first purchase from etrailer. i'll return whenever i need another part.

It took a while to ship but it said it would when I originally bought it, and their communication was fantastic.

Customer service was amazing! Due to Covid 19, there were uncontrollable product delays but consumer service constantly kept me informed of my order status. I really appreciated the extra steps they took.

Right product, easy to install and get the Skybox back up and running.

Switched cars on a camping trip and forgot my key to the roof pod. Ruined the lock while trying to pick it (yes I succeeded!). Searched the web and found these replacement handles. They arrived promptly and the switch out was a breeze. Basically two screws per side, and the handles mount into the existing latch mechanisms.

These were the exact fit I was looking for. It only requires the removal of a couple screws to replace, and the process is well defined in the instructions. Thanks etrailer!



- Y8880348
by:

I bought this along with 8 lock cores and a base roof rack thinking that I would swap these cores out to match my roof rack cores. etrailer was thoughtful enough to make sure the lock code on these matched the lock cores I bought! Now I have two spare lock cores and four matching keys. That was a pleasant surprise and something I doubt would happen at other places like backcountry.com. I will be shopping here again for sure.

Super easy to install, 5 minutes both sides! Surpringsly cheap. etrailer.com is a fantastic website with loads of information, photos, videos and service experts on standby. I will come back time and time again!

Great product!! Easy to find on website! Semi fast shipping. Fantastic price!! I broke the key inside the lock and was at a loss of how to fix.. the key and cam route seemed a bit pricey. I was very fortunate to find this on etrailer!! New locks, keys all in one great price!!! Thanks soooo much!!

I had to replace the lock mechanism on my Yakima cargo box and was able to get the parts from etrailer super easy. Both locks replaced very easy, good instructions and was happy to see they came with new lock cores and a set of keys.

  • Gaining Access to Yakima SkyBox with Broken Key Stuck Inside Lock Core
    Your best option for replacing the SuperLatch Handle Assemblies # Y8880348 on your Yakima SkyBox will be to try and remove that broken key. What I recommend doing is purchasing a key extractor from a local hardware store. These small and inexpensive metal tools/hooks can be used to fish out the metal key piece that's stuck inside the core. Once you have the key removed it's just a matter of obtaining a replacement so you can unlock the box and replace the latches if needed. If you can...

  • Troubleshooting Stuck Lock Cylinder of Yakima Skybox Cargo Box 16
    You've tried what we normally recommend by spraying a penetrating oil into the lock cylinder but what you can in addition to that try is to spray the oil into the lock and then work the key in an out several times as that sometimes can free up the tumblers of the lock. Sometimes a few rounds of this with several minutes between them can eventually get it to free up.

  • Yakima Skybox Replacement Locks for a Locked Box
    Yakima's control key is not compatible with the locks on the SkyBox SuperLatch. You'll need to order new latches, available as part # Y8880348, which will include new locks and keys, and have a locksmith drill out the old locks, as they are not able to be removed when locked. This will enable you to remove the existing latch and replace with a new latch pair.

  • Replacement Lock for a Yakima Skybox Roof Cargo Box
    Usually this break is related to a pin inside the locking mechanism breaking. You can switch sides by removing the locking mechanism and just switching the parts individually. However, this does mean that the box is overall less secure. You may want to purchase a lock replacement as part # Y8880348 which will replace both sides.

    I checked with Yakima and it looks like you have a mid 2000's Skybox.

These handles also include new, keyed alike Single Key System keys.

  • Troubleshooting Yakima Lock Core that Won't Accept Key
    If the lock core is not accepting the key the problem lies with it and not the latch like part # Y8880348. If you can get the flap of the core to slide up you would want to use a spray lubricant like WD-40 and use the straw of it to direct the lubricant into the lock core. Let the core sit for a few minutes and try again. After doing this a couple time it should free up the lock core and allow the key to slide in. If it still doesn't want to turn you would want to insert the key several...

You might be able to track down a used part somewhere but your best option at this point may simply be to upgrade to a new/current model roof box. Doing this will also make it much easier to find replacement parts down the line if needed. I'm not sure how large your...
