These installed easy enough, but after examining how the locking mechanism works, I am pretty sure I could still force the latch on the support tower open without any tools. The locks work by engaging a metal clip behind a plastic tab on the back of the outer cover on the support tower. The engagement is only about 1/8" and the plastic is not very thick. If someone wants to steal your rack or its contents, this will barely slow them down.

For what these roof racks cost, the manufacturer needs to include a more secure locking mechanism. This would probably require making the outer cover on the support towers out of metal instead of plastic, or re-thinking how the locking mechanism works entirely.

It took a little time trying to get the lock into the slot correctly but once I did, it works like a champ. I like that they give you 3 keys and key sign-up form if you ever lose them. Good product. Would recommend.

Locks were perfect for my rack. Extremely easy to install in about a minute for each one.

So expensive for what they are. The mechanism is too basic and feel like anyone can open this.

These were purchased for the Yakima Frontloader Rooftop Bike Carrier. The rack should already come with them, but I understand the added profit by selling the separately. They are easy to install and they work. Pretty easy and they do what they're supposed to. Make it so a thief has to completely remove the cross members off the car to steal my bike and rack. It's a win-win for a would-be criminal.

After years of not locking our roof rack, a friend pointed out that someone with a pickup could easily remove the entire rack, with all its contents (ski rack, cargo box), in a few minutes. For the extra peace of mind, we spent the modest amount to get these locks. They installed in a snap (literally).

I like the sense of security but it sucks that Yakima kind of rips you off for that sense of security when its pretty easy to break the plastic covers ans steal your stuff anyway.

Nice product though, good interchangeability. Its convenient to only have one key for all the locks.

Go for at least 8-pack if looking to expand with future attachments. Not too much more expensive than the 4 pack...

Easy to install into your Yakima Product, just wish they already came along with mounts instead of having to spend more money buying them separate, but overall love the quality of product, have yet to see any signs of rust. Would recommend them if you buy any Yakima Rack, because as I mentioned, you have no choice than to buy these if you want your bikes secure.....

Very cheap quality. I'm not confident they prevent anyone from stealing anything. A deterrent at best; not sure I'd order them again...snug the roof rack onto the rails properly and it takes a fair bit of time to get them off, regardless of the locks.

These guys do just what they are supposed to. Easy to install. They work very well to make sure the latch stays closed on my bike carrier.
