Hello, neighbors. I'm Steve here at Today we're looking at the Replacement Key for your Thule Racks and Carriers, specifically, key number N2820. You might be saying, "Steve, how do I know which key do I need" Well, it's pretty simple. Go find your lock core on your rack or carrier, engraved on the front face of that core itself, right next to where the key slides in, you should see an engraved number. That's the number that you're looking for.

That's the number of key that matches that core. Now, Thule does make hundreds of these, so make sure you get that number correct. This particular one, as you can see, is engraved "2820." So, again, it's key number N2820. Folks, you're gonna get one key with purchase. If you need more than one, simply change the quantity in your cart before you make your purchase.

We'll be happy to send as many as you need. I'm Steve with Thanks for watching. This has been our look at the Replacement Key Number N2820 for the Thule Racks and Carriers. Have a great one.

Replace a missing Thule key with this equivalent part.


Purchased a key for my karite roof cargo box and fitted just right.
Also first key never got to me , stuck in New York some where , called etrailer and talked to Joanne and she sent another one immediately, this one did not get stuck in USPS somewhere. Great service


I originally found the car top luggage carrier on a tree lawn. All of the hardware was there but no key to unlock the lock. There was also damage to the two front corners. I found your address on e-bay and ordered the key by the number stamped on the lock. The key worked perfectly and when I was able to open the carrier, I was able to fiberglass the corners (two coats), sand it down and hit it with some matte black paint. We have used the unit on a number of trips with the last one out to Indianapolis for the Indy 500. You helped save this huge piece from ending up in a land fill. Thank you very much. Cheers!


The replacement key worked perfectly first time. Now we can use the box again. This was a very inexpensive and easy solution to our problem. No locksmith would even look at it. Also liked the efficiency of the order and tracking system, as well as the quick response to my first query about a replacement key. All in all a VERY pleasant customer experience!!! Thank you


I am a locksmith who orders from multiple providers. I wish all the providers I deal with were as professional as
My transaction with was perfect. The communication, quick shipping, and follow up on this hard to find key set was impressive.
The keys arrived individually packaged, and they work perfectly on my clients rooftop system.
Thank you for your help!


Quick fast and everything worked


Excellent website, purchased replacement key for rooftop carrier. Instructions to select proper key were great. The tracking of the product when shipped were very informative.


The key worked for my SportRack Vista XL as described. Shipping was fast and delivered when expected.


Thank u u guy r great i got my key and it work.


Key works great fit and opens up my cargo carrier from sears again thanks


We were missing the key for our Sears car top carrier. I ordered the correct key and it was here in 2 days! Timely!


Fits perfect! I have the Sears X-Cargo Sport 20. Great product!


I recently broke my key of my roof carrier. I was afraid I would not find a replacement key and would have to break open the lock since the carrier is pretty old. Fortunately I found etrailer. Within minutes I was provided the information of which replacement key I needed and how I could order it. I received it and was pleased that it worked just fine. Great service: good information, quick turn around and reasonable price. Thanks

Still works great. Thanks. Great service. Many companies wouldnt care less to follow up with their customers nowadays but you guys do. Amazing.


Timing was perfect and the key was a perfect fit!!!





Actually they should show 2 keys because that is what you are getting. Someone may think they are getting only one key without reading.
The customer service I get from etrailer is really fantastic. To me that is one of the most important part of any type of business be it brick and mortar, service type or Internet. I had been a service type business owner for over 30 years so I know first hand. I will continue to deal with etrailer for my trailer needs.



Excellent Never a problem! Always helpful!


very fast service,good product



worked as it should


Lost all keys, this was the right one and it works.


Great gift for a friend. Received a Thule rack carrier from family, but couldn't find the key. Unit was locked. Ordered the key replacement and opened right up. Found the missing keys inside along with some of there old camping gear. Now daily used for all there trips in and out of town with a full vans of kids. Recommend a Thule carrier for anyone with little to no vehicle interior room.


A single key for $XX is a joke. I won't go back to this site for any other item.


Worked as is should


I thought it was a lost cause trying to find a key for my old Thule Sidekick, but I stumbled on this site and this key worked perfectly! It seems to be well made similar to the original keys but is more gold in color than the pictures show. The key fits and turns with no issues to unlock and lock my cargo box. I would highly reccomend this product!!


We lost our key to the car carrier we purchased from a local store. The store couldn't help, so I went online and found E-trailer. The website was super easy to use. I ordered the replacement keys and got them in just a couple days. Very impressive.


We had a Sears Cargo Carrier for the top of a vehicle. Had not used it for several years. The keys were "gone missing."

After getting the key number off of the lock, we were able to search with Google and found the key at Etrailer with a great explanation as to how these keys were identified.

Short story to a great solution, in about 4 days we had the key in hand and now our useless carrier is useful again. By the way, we ordered two keys and will label the spare clearly to store in a safe, memorable location.

Thanks so much Etrailer!

I was in need of a key for a cargo carrier I acquired in a moving sale, but it was missing the key. The key code was prominently shown on the front of the lock. When I searched that number popped up first and were the best price so I ordered. The key arrived promptly and worked fine.


The key works just perfectly on my Pepboys Voyager XL roof cargo box. Since it's made by Thule, they just use the same parts. etrailer's knowledge and advice is great. On the other side, etrailer's shipping service is just atrocious!


I lost the keys to my car top carrier. Online ordering was easy and simple. Follow-up confirmation and notifications were excellent. Product tracking was excellent. I knew when the product order was received, processed, shipped and when I could expect delivery.
I would highly recommend
