        Comments about THULE 596 Lock Cylinders, 6-Pack:

        Just pop the plastic factory covers and insert the lock cylinder with the change key, and you're ready to go. I tried looking every which way to see if they're 'easy' to bypass - but it looks like they're solid. Of course, if someone wants something bad enough...they're not heavy-duty chains. But hey, someone could rip of your car doors if they really wanted, so...

        They're SUPER easy to install, work smoothly - and look like they'll be keeping my bike plenty safe.

        One suggestion: Make sure to consider ALL possible locks for your rig, so you can order the appropriate number of cylinders. Eg - I needed 8: 4 for the AeroFoot pads, 2 for the short roof adapter, and 1 ea/ for the bike racks. I only do bikes - but other systems (kayaks? surfboards?) may require more. Plan accordingly.

        Comments about THULE 596 Lock Cylinders, 6-Pack:

        Better than nothing. Still can't install on my Hullavator, but managed to get them on the load rack with some effort. I'd only recommend because even a hard to install lightweight lock is probbly better than nothing.

          Comments about THULE 596 Lock Cylinders, 6-Pack:

          The first time I used these locks, I had four of them on my car and one got stuck shut. We couldn't even get the key into it. It took 3 of us with 7 tools about 20 minutes to get our boards free. All of this broke the lock - which was broken, I guess, anyway. I hope it was an isolated incident. Otherwise, I like them....

              They are locks. Pretty self explanatory but definitely a good idea unless you want to find stuff missing. Well worth the money for a little peace of mind.

                  Comments about THULE 596 Lock Cylinders, 6-Pack:

                  The Thule bmw 753 rack doesn't accept the locks that I ordered when I ordered the rack. It would have been helpful if some sort of notification was made with the rack that the Thule locks will not work with this specific rack. [...]
