Changing the Lock Core on RockyMounts Bike Racks and Ordering New Locks with Specific Numbers


Can I request a lock number to match a current lock that I have? And can I replace the core in my Clutch SD, if so how?

The RockyMounts lock cores can be changed out on their bike carriers. If you want to have your RockyMounts products keyed the same then what you will do is either order a separate lock and key that has the same number as a lock and key that you already have. Or you can order a pack of cores such as # RKY0332 and change the locks on both products.

To order a lock and key that matches what you already have you will look at the number on the key/lock that you have. For example if that number was E110 the replacement lock with 2 keys would be # RKY0331-E110.

To change the lock out first make sure it is unlocked and leave the key in. On one side of the housing or component the lock is installed in there is a hole. In that hole use a small flat blade screwdriver in the slot on the lock body and pry it out. To install the new lock put its key in it and insert the new lock. Lock and unlock it a few times to make sure the key turns like it should.
