When I order, can I request a specific core number (e.g.: A141) to match my current cores?
Lock your stuff down
The locks also gives you the peace of mind that your gear won't come off.
Lock your stuff down
Yakima racks are great and people know it. You need at least 2 cores (preferably 4) for the racks themselves but you'll need some cores for the accessories you put on the bars.
Yakima Lock Cores
What can I say about them? They're just locks. I bought the six pack so I have 4 on my control towers and 1 on my viper bike tray and 1 extra left over. Included are 3 keys. 2 spares and 1 core lock push in key that has no design cut to first install the cores. Thats pretty much it. Enjoi
Easy To Use
These are easy to use. But who knows really how secure they are. They don't seem like they would do anything.
Worth the extra money
Although after a hefty price tag for rack and bars and fairing and what not, these can seem pretty superfluous they are definitely worth it. Super easy to install and then easy to use. I have my rack locked to my car and my bike locked to my rack when I use all of them so I can leave it all on the roof after a long ride.
Pricey but worth it.
What can i say, they're locks. They're easy to install and don't jam. They also come with two keys so you can keep one on you and put the other in a safe place for when you loose the one you had on you. Pricey yes but the feeling of security they provide is worth it. Also, if you have enough of them and buy the accessory lock housings, you can not only lock your rack to your car, but also your rack accessories to your rack to deter all but the most persistent thieves.
Very easy to install - Make sure you get enough cores for all your attachments. One key for all your locks is a must.

These locks have done a great job for the past year at securing my rack to my car. The key still turns great despite the locks exposure to dusty desert and snowy mountain conditions. A small price to pay to keep your valuables locked to your rack and your rack to your roof.
These are a must if you want peace of mind.
you get what you pay for
Nifty little locks. I like having only one key and the ease of installing these locks. They're pricey, but worth it to protect your stuff!
