    I've decided to go with the Yakima rack instead of OEM. I was wondering if yall found the SKS lock cores necessary for the rack. Isn't the rack installed by clipping under the door anyway? So if you leave the truck and close and lock the door, the rack couldn't be stolen.

    I have locks on my Yakima, but I think it can be forced out by loosening the adjustment bolt even with the doors closed.

    Your rack is worth a lot. Spend a few more bucks for piece of mind and keep it secured.

    I am not sure what you say is true. The lock prevents the latch from lifting. If someone is able to lift the latch they could probably wiggle the clip out from under the door with the extra play they would have. With the latch secure, and the rack on tight there will be no wiggle and no chance of theft short of seriously damaging your truck. Get the locks!

    Thanks for the replies everyone. This was the thought I had as well but just wanted to double check before I spent money on something I possibly didn't need. I will definitely get the locks now.
