Karrite Voyager Replacement Hinge and Broken Key


I have an old Karrite Voyager roof box. It only has buckle straps. Id like to be able to attach this to the roof rails of our vehicle like more modern styles. What can I do? ALSO, I need to replace one of the inside hinges and the key broke off in one of the locks. Please advise asap. Thanks for your time.

It is very likely that replacement Spring Hinge # SR03810 will fit your Karrite Explorer cargo box. The SportRack Explorer, Sears X-Cargo, and Karrite Explorer are all related and do use many of the same parts. Though we have not tested it on a Karrite Explorer, I am 99 percent sure it will work.

Your best bet would be to take the lock to a locksmith, who should be able to remove the broken portion of the key. One the key is removed, we can get you a replacement if you need one. The lock should have the key number stamped right next to the slot where the key is inserted. The replacement keys would be ordered by using the part # THKEYN followed by the three or four digit code number of the lock. For instance, if your lock has the number 2862, you' order replacement key THKEYN2862.

There isn't a way to upgrade your mounting hardware without extensive modification that I can't safely recommend.
