Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace Of Mind Now we no longer have to concern ourselves with taking the racks off the roof if we decide to run in to a restaurant or a store. Fit easily, and securely into our Yakima Jaylow kayak racks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still New Easy to install. Only used them twice to date. So far so good. Appear to be sturdy and durable.

Do these actually lock with the Rail Grab Towers? It looks to me like you could just unscrew the exposed knob on the inside and loose the bars and remove them, basically making the lock useless. Is that possible?

Asked by: davidk20
The SKS Lock Cores will lock the Yakima RailGrab Towers. They work by locking the RailGrab front cover which conceals the rear claw tightener, so thieves cannot loosen the rear claw. There is a video on installation of the RailGrab with SKS Lock Cores on the following page:

I already have some locking Yakima accessories with SKS cores. Can I order a new 4 pack from REI with the same lock core number -- so I can use the same key for all?

Asked by: luludog
REI cannot provide keys with the same numbers, but Yakima can. On the Yakima website homepage there is a link for "Getting keys & cores". Click there and enter your key number.
