Review by Brian Posted on January 22, 2019I've used Yakima lock cores for years (decades, actually). Yes, they are convenient, but I always thought that they were light-duty locks at best, really just there to deter casual theft. My opinion changed yesterday when I had to drill out an SKS core because I had lost the key for it (yes, this wa...read mores my own rack - note to self: write down the key code someplace before you need it!). Even using a high-quality drill bit, it took almost 10 minutes to drill out the core, pry out the pieces, and finally get to the point where the underlying locking disc could be moved to the "open" position. So, yes, they can be drilled out, but it was MUCH harder than I would have imagined, and not something a casual thief would likely do if your vehicle was parked somewhere.
