Video Transcript for Yakima Same Key System - SKS - Lock Cores Review

Jake: Hey guys, it's Jake here with etrailer. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Yakima Lock Cores. These are going to be made for your roof rack to be able to lock into your roof. When you buy them from the factory, they're just going to come with plastic lock cores, and it's not going to secure it to your roof while you're not with it. For the example, with our SkyLine Towers, they're very, very easily removable. Just pull back and lift up and your bars are going to be gone.

So by replacing these plastic lock cores with the locking cores, you're not going to have to worry about anyone stealing or tampering with your roof rack. In your kit, you're going to get two keys that are keyed to unlock and lock all of your lock cores, and you're going to get one installation key. This is the key dish we're going to use to push the lock cores into place.To start with, we need to take our flat key and pop our plastic lock cores out. And to get our lock cores into place, we just need to take it, you're going to line it up with this hole. So right here is where you're going to see that little indentation that you're going to stick your lock core into place, where that little knob is going to stick down inside there.

Just push it into place.Now we can take the tip of our finger and hold our lock core and pull our control key out. And we can take one of our two keys that has our notches in it and lock up our bars. And you'll repeat this process for all four of your foot packs. Now, as I said, your kit is going to come with two keys. If you we're to lose them, there are replacement keys available.

On the back there's going to be a letter followed by three numbers. It's a good idea when you first get your kit to write that series of numbers down, so that you know which key is yours, and you can order them here at etrailer.Now, one little helpful piece of advice I'd like to provide you all with is, if you plan on leaving your rack on your vehicle during the winter time or whatever you might be putting your lock cores in, it's a good idea that when winter time is approaching, you spray a little bit of lubricant on the inside of your lock, not only to help your lock work properly, but it's going to prevent any water from building up inside, potentially turning into ice. I had a situation one time where I needed to get into my toolbox for a side job and I couldn't get in because water had gotten into my lock and froze solid, and I couldn't get my key in. But with all that being said, that's going to do it for our look and installation of the Yakima Lock Cores..

eTrailer provides excellent after-sale service ... which is the MOST IMPORTANT aspect of making an informed purchasing decision. Well done!


So easy to swap, thank you for the video links!


Works as promised


Easy to switch out locks on my Yakima bike rack.


Looks good, fit good and good instructi ons



Working out just fine


I ordered lock cores for a Yakima bike rack that I had previously purchased from eTrailer. In both cases, the products arrived promptly, in good condition and I installed them with no problem. I very much like doing business with this company.

Byron S.


Still use it. Still like it. No problems to report.


I received the key and Yakima racking system and am very happy with both Give yourself 5 stars for delivery and product.


Work just right in my Yakima racks.



Still right!


I had lost my key to my roofrack. I gave the guys at a called and we're extremely helpful. Pointed me in the right direction and had us on our way again. Thank you for the awesome service


Worked perfect, took a long time to get.


They still work fine for what they are. I think it is still a design flaw to have to lock the units before being able to take the keys out. But that's a manufacture problem not a problem with the cylinders themselves.
Still may be priced a bit high for what the generics sell for, the quality may be worth it. I haven't bought the generics.


So simple and so easy to use. I simply nipped it in the hole and twisted the key. Good to go!! It's a great addition to the bike rack since it gives you the peace of mind that no one can steal your bike off the rack not take the rack off
the roof. Most Excellent!!!


Great service, walked me through on the phone and got what I needed in 10 days.


Work as intended. Don't like these locks not being included with the racks. The prices you pay for a rack it should include the security side as well. That's why I am only leaving 3 stars.


It fit my Yakima Skybox 16.


The keys were delivered very quickly and i was able to replace the lock on my cargo unit. The instructions in were very clear and it only took a few minutes to switch out the locks.


Quick shipping, product on point! Easy instructions, took like 30 seconds to replace two locks! Super quick and easy!


A must have for roof rack operations. I have the Jaylow Kayak Carrier and being able to lock it down is essential.


Installation was quick and easy after I figured out black plastic plug was on the rack and not the lock core!


I had a problem with the lock set that comes in two. Out of stock. So we where able to use two single locks. And two single keys plus the master insertion key. Great customer service. Fast delivery.


a must have,unless you want to remove bike carrier from car every time you use it to prevent theft.


Product was delivered and received as promised. This is my third purchase from without incident.


Just a simple way to lock the forks down to inhibit an opportunistic crook who wants a bicycle. A determined crook with tools could always figure a way. Also, it provides a way of preventing an accidental release of the skewer pressure.


Accurate, precise and just as described. Installation was easier than expected and quick.


Great purchase. Much better connection than the original and no hassle on threading a connection.

  • Unlocking Yakima Locking Knob That Does Not Have a Lock Core Cylinder In Place
    Inside your Locking Knob for Yakima SpareTime Bike Rack # 8890239 there is a slot that the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores # Y07202 slide into and operates the latch mechanism on your knob. As you do not have a lock cylinder currently in your knob you will be able to place a small tip screw driver into this slot and slide it back into the unlocked position. You may need to use some penetrating oil inside this if the latch is siezed due to being exposed to dirt and moisture. Without...

  • What Roof Rack Can I Use with the Thule Hullavator on My 2022 Toyota Highlander with Flush Rails?
    I have a great solution for your flush rails on your 2022 Toyota Highlander to use the Hullavator # TH898. Yakima temporarily discontinued the Y00148 because they are updating the feet to fit a wider range of vehicles. Yakima has been changing a lot of fitments lately because of this factor. The landing pads # Y66VR are separate from the Y00148. However, with that being said, Yakima does have a roof rack system that fits your flush rails with a different model of feet. For that system,...

  • Best Roof-Mounted Bike Rack for Factory Crossbars on 2020 Toyota Highlander
    The best bike rack that fits the factory OEM roof rack on your 2020 Toyota Highlander is the Yakima FrontLoader # Y02103 because it is a wheel-mounted bike rack that won't require you to remove your bike's wheels to carry them. Not only does this make mounting your bikes on the rack more convenient (and quicker) than having to take off a wheel, it also means there is no contact with your bikes' frame at all. The FrontLoader protects your bikes from potentially falling into the wrong hands...

  • Recommended Fairing for Rola Roof rack on a 2009 Honda Accord Sedan
    Yes! Out of the variety of fairings that we have to offer I recommend the 40" long Inno Fairing # INA261 because it will fit perfectly with the 38" long Rola Sport Series Roof Rack # 59757 for your 2009 Honda Accord. If you let me know what you are wanting to use the roof rack for I can make additional recommendations for you. I have also attached an installation video and a picture of this roof rack on a 2009 Accord Sedan that you can reference.

  • Does Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier Fit Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars on 2017 Toyota Camry Sedan
    You made a couple of great choices with the kayak carrier and roof rack for your Camry, and I can confirm that the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero crossbars are 100 percent compatible with the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073. The carrier will fit perfectly on Rhino-Rack crossbars, and comes with tie-down straps for a single kayak, so if you wanted to use it to carry two kayaks you would need the Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes # Y04031. Additionally, you can lock the JayLow to the roof rack...

  • How To Determine If Old Yakima SpaceCase Uses The Newer SKS Lock Cores?
    I reached out to Yakima but they could not find any information on your serial number. They did say if you look at the lock core and see a number printed on the lock core it is pre SKS. Otherwise you should see SKS stamped into the lock core on the outside. If this is what you have we do have the locks available with multiple cores. If you have other Yakima Same Key System accessories you will be able to key everything alike. Yakima Same Key System 2 Cores # Y07202 Yakima Same Key System...

  • Will Yakima SprocketRocket Fit Factory Crossbars on 2018 Toyota Highlander
    The Replacement Hardware Kit # Y8820147 you referenced will not allow you to use your Yakima SprocketRocket bike rack on the factory crossbars of your 2018 Toyota Highlander. I checked with Yakima and this bike rack will not fit on factory roof racks because they have tested factory crossbars and found them not to be strong enough to handle the stress that a fork-mount bike rack generates. For a bike rack that will work with your '18 Highlander's factory crossbars I recommend checking...

Unfortunately, I confirmed with Erickson that the Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack w/ Load Stops # EM07705 is not confirmed to fit your 2021 Honda Ridgeline with bed dimensions of 60"L x 50"W. In addition, we currently don't carry any truck-bed ladder racks that will fit your vehicle.

  • Can I Use My Own Skewers with the Yakima Fork Chop?
    I went ahead and confirmed with my contact at Yakima you will be able to use your own skewers on the Yakima Fork Chop Y02117 as long as they fit the skewer holes. The Yakima Fork Chop is compatible with 9 mm x 100 mm, 12 mm x 100 mm, 15 mm x 100 mm, and 15 mm x 110 mm, 15 mm x 135 mm, 15 mm x 142 mm, and 15 mm x 150 mm. However, if you are planning to use the Yakima Same-Key System locks # Y07202, you will only be able to use those in Yakima skewers.

    The Yakima SlimShady Awning # Y36VR fits the round bars of your Yakima rack with it's included clamps.

  • Can I Use the Yakima HandRoll with My 2013 Audi Q5's Factory Crossbars?
    Yes, you will be able to use a complete set of Yakima HandRolls on your 2013 Audi Q5's 3-inch wide factory crossbars. We do sell the complete system that comes with 4 HandRolls. For that system, you need the Yakima HandRoll Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Roller Style # Y04082-2. The padded, pivoting cradles conform to the shape of your hull so you do not have to worry about any scratching or damage to the kayak. If you want extra security, I recommend the Same-Key Lock Cores # Y07202.

  • Will the Yakima JayLow # Y04073 Fit on the SportRack Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack # SR1020?
    Yes! The Yakima JayLow # Y04073 is 100% compatible with the 1.25" x 1.25" square crossbars of the SportRack Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack # SR1020. To make sure that you have theft-deterrence on the JayLow, I recommend using the Yakima Same-Key Lock Cores # Y07202 to give you peace of mind. If you plan to add a second boat, you need the additional Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops # Y04031.

  • Removing Lock Core That is Locked on Yakima Rocketbox 15S
    There was not one universal lock core for a Yakima Rocketbox so what you need to do is have a locksmith unlock the cores. From there you have a couple options. The first is to use the Replacement Control Key for Yakima Same Key System # Y8007835 to remove the core and look for the core number; you can then order replacement keys. For example if your lock core had "A132" on it you would need Replacement Key for Yakima Racks and Carriers - A132 # Y8772-A132. The other option is to have...

    Yes, the Yakima FrontLoader # Y02103 is compatible with the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System for Retrax XR Series and Mountain Top EVO-M Tonneau Covers # RRVA180B-RRRLT600. The Rhino-Rack crossbars come with a plastic lock core but you can upgrade them to metal with part # RRVA-LEC4, and then the FrontLoader comes with a lock for the bike so if you'd like to add a lock for the rack as well you can either wait to see what lock core number comes with the bike lock or you can go ahead and...

  • Does the Yakima JayLow # Y04073 Fit on Factory Crossbars of 2015 Toyota Sienna?
    While there is definitely a way to measure to confirm if the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073 fits your factory crossbars on your 2015 Toyota Sienna, we unfortunately do not have access to the exact specs of your bars. With that being said, as long as your crossbars do not exceed 3-1/2" wide x 1-11/16" long, the # Y04073 fits your crossbars. I recommend measuring the width and height of your bars to make sure. It is also important to make sure that you have at least 24" inches of crossbar...

  • Recommended Fork Mount Bike Racks for OEM Roof Rack on a 2014 Honda CR-V
    The Yakima ForkLift Roof Mounted Bike Carrier # Y02098 that you referenced is a great option for your roof rack on your 2014 Honda CR-V. This bike rack can be mounted on round, square, and factory (aero) crossbars that do not exceed the 3-7/8" wide x 1-7/8" tall max dimensions and that have a crossbar spread between 16" - 42" (center of front crossbar to center of rear bar).

This hitch has a 2" receiver with a 10,000 lb line pull and 1000 lb vertical load limit to handle your kayaks. It has a hidden cross tube to help maintain a factory look and is made in the USA.

  • Will Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier fit on a 2014 Kia Soul to carry 2 Kayaks
    According to the manufacturer, the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073 will fit your 2014 Kia Soul with factory roof rack. I recommend getting a second set of Yakima Cinch Straps # Y05006 since the Yakima Carrier only comes with one set. This will enable you to secure a second kayak to the roof of your Kia. Something else that would help protect your Kia and make securing the kayaks easier would be the the etrailer Kayak Tie-Down kit # e36ZR. These come with 2 Foam anchors fit under hood...

The only difference between the two, apart from the color, is that the FullBack come with a steel-reinforced strap which stores inside your vehicle to protect it from theft, as well as a cable lock to secure your bikes to the rack.
