Allows a number of non-locking mounts to be securely locked to the crossbar.
Yakima SKS Lock Cores. These are the heart of the Yakima SKS system, and are easy to install in every rack and mount that have the words "lockable with SKS cores" next to them. Yakima SKS Lock Cores are available in 2, 4, 6,8, 10, and 12 packs. Buy the pack that fits your needs.

You will need this to protect your bikes or racks, it is most. Don't be fooled, by them if you need them. Protect your investment.
Finally finished my Yakima rack
These were the last things I needed to finish my Yakima roof rack. Without them I was afraid my Q-Clips were going to come loose but when I added these on they held tight. Great product.
Yakima Lock Cores
These are an important add on to any Yakima racking system. Four cores are needed to lock down a RailGrab tower to start off with. After that, it is often useful to have at least 4 more to lock down other racks on to the rails. Getting a larger set could be worth it for future expansion or for multiple cars, if you want to keep the same lock for all cores.
Installation (and removal) just takes a few seconds per core. There is a key unique to the lock, as well as a control key which allows the lock to be removed if needed, after unlocking it.
Peace of mind
These work, nothing fancy, but they lock down your rack and any add-ons. Only thing I found when installing them is that you cant tighten down your Q towers too tight or else the lock will not turn to close.
Just Buy Them
Stop wondering if it's really worth the money and just buy them. I bought twelve and it is so nice to be able to walk away from my car with complete confidence that when i come back, my whole rack system will be there. And if I want to take it apart, the same key works with all of the components, from my towers to my ski racks and back again. Think about the amount of money you have invested in your racks, plus the amount you have invested in the gear that is held by those racks, and $110 for twelve cores starts to sound like a mighty good deal.
High quality and very easy to install. Recommend as a security feature. Wish I bought them years ago
Can I order SKS cores to match the key/SKS...
Can I order SKS cores to match the key/SKS cores I already have?
Yes, BUT you have to order them from a Yakima dealer and give them your serial number for the other lock cores, so that the tumblers will match your cores you already have. AGAIN, you must order from Yakima.
Just what I needed.
This 12 pack is great as it allows me to use one key for my bike and snow racks, and I still have a few more left over for future add-ons.
