You have to replace the SKS cores you don't want with mates to the ones you do want.

I would suggest replacing the snowboard cores with ones that are the same # as your towers since then you are only replacing 2 cores instead of 4 and it is cheaper.

The key should have a number on it that tells you what core it goes too. You can either contact yakima and get the exact cores you need or go into your local dealer and see if they have them in stock or can order for you.

Hello there, getting replacement keys for your ski rack is possible. Usually to get replacement keys all you have to do is visit your local distributor. Apparently the keys can be re-ordered from the manufacturers although the name of the manufacturers have been changed to proline products. here is the web address http://www.prolineracks.com maybe an order can be placed from there. Or you could get more information from calling their customer service and locating the nearest distributor to your location.
Hope this support has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa.

The locks work fine when there's no gear loaded, but when i put my boards onto the rack the locks won't turn. any suggestions?


sounds like a pressure issue ( binding problem ) --- when you go to lock the locks ( with the skis and/or snowboard on rack ) try and push down hard on the rack while you turn the locks,, this might get the pressure off enough to allow the lock cams to pass. if this does not work then the next thing to do is to file down and modify the lock cams so they turn easier without binding. if you do not have the tools to do this modification then you can always go down to your local locksmith shop ( with the skis/snowboard on the rack ) and have them do the modifications -- the shop will only charge you around 10 to 15 dollars for this service.
I hope this helps,

Bought a barrecrafter car rack off craisglist...i bought it with no keys because the ownr lost them...i need a replacement


look and see if there are any letters and numbers scribed on the face of the lock cylinder, this is the key code-- with this code you should be able to go to your local locksmith and they will be able to cut you a ' key by code ' and it will work. if there is no code on the lock then you can also just take the rack to the lockshop and they will be able to pick and remove the cylinder from the lock and fit a key to it by hand. normal shop rates for making a key in this fasion is about $12-$15 dollars and if you want more than one key - duplicate keys cost about $1.75 to $ 2.50.
(( even if the lock does have numbers on it -- take the rack to the shop with you to make sure the key that they cut by code works before you leave the shop,,, saving you a second trip ))

The top won't open. First one side began to stick on the left front ball latch and now the right side won't open at all. Is there a simple solution? Should I sand down the ball on the left side? Can i buy...


When mine did the same thing, I just sprayed each mechanism with some spray lubricant to free it up, worked great. Same in the latches. WD-40 to the rescue.

I have two different SKS cores. One for my snowboard rack and one for the Q towers on my Yakima roof rack. How do I set it up so I only have to use one key?

Cracked cargo box (yakima)


good old duct tape... i would get some silicone caulking and run beads along the cracks in the box to seal the water out. not sure what colour that is but the caulking comes in many colours as well as clear.

Bike rack for 940 wagon


The mount on the rain gutters...Thule, Yakima, etc. Get locking feet...worth the extra money.

I think you can also get some for hanging off the tailgate...check with the companies online or in a local dealer.
