    MT stuff, RTT stuff, the usual.
    Find the master at REI or wherever and get some new ones. Hell, I'd take this as a perfect time to order new tumblers and have them all let's alike.

    For future reference though, drilling out locks is easy

    Some REI locations have a selection of keys and some times can help. The gold key only works if the lock is unlocked. You might have luck if you take it to a local locksmith. Likely charge about $35.

    What size drill bit did you use? I was thinking of measuring a spare cores I have with a caliper and dropping a 1/4" or so. I want to avoid damage to the tower by not going to big, but also going big enough that the pins drop out and the core can be removed.

    Ultimately, I don't care if I screw it up because this is an old rack system on a secondhand leer topper I bought with a custom lumber rack. The Yakima bars are pointless with the lumber rack in place but I need to access the tracks to fix the leaks going into my truck bed sleeper setup.
