"Used to lock my aero raptors to my whispbar."
Excellent quality and piece of mind. Unfortunately Moosejaw doesn't sell the yakima SKS accessory housing for these cores, but I came back for these cores here due to their excellent customer service. No longer worried about my racks walking away on the streets of Chicago.
If you think you need 4 buy 8. If you buy any accessories in the future that take a lock core you will have some that fit the same key. No point in having 2 sets of keys for one system. Just buy extra and thank me later.
Bad people steal. So you need these locks. They are very easy to install and will give you some peace of mind while your skis or boards are mounted on the rack when you're at the resort, or just stopping at the gas station or restaurant during your trip. Too bad they're not standard when you buy a Yakima rack.
I was always scared to go run into a store or go grab a bite to eat when I had my bikes attached to my hitch bike rack. I've heard of several people getting their bikes stolen when they stepped away for 5 minutes. Now I can leave my precious bikes attached to the rack without having to worry about them getting stolen!
I've never had my racks stolen, but if you ever read any outdoor, vehicle, subaru, kayaking, etc. forums, you will see many people talking about how their racks had been stolen. It is too easy, and takes less than 20 seconds to grab someone's bars and control towers. These locks prevent your bars/towers from disappearing off your roof while you're in a store, or at work, or sitting in your own parking lot. With these locks, the control towers would literally lave to be cut apart (destroying them in the process) to be stolen. They are worth the price for the purpose they serve.
These core locks are the only way to go! Yakima racks are top of the line and if you do not protect your investment with these core locks your racks (and maybe you gear) could be ripped off. Buy the eight-pack so you do not have to have two sets of keys.
