Yakima Roof Rack
« on: April 17, 2013, 11:49:28 AM »
I am about to purchase a new roof rack for my bike and kayak.  I was wondering if any has had any issues with theft.  I am purchasing the lock cores to detour theft but I know this wont prevent it.  Anyone have one stolen or attempt to be stolen.  If you have one, do you leave it on all the time or take it off when not in use.  Thanks for the help / advice.

I have one that I leave on all the time and also have locking cores. The only problem I've had so far is that someone stole the rear wheel strap off my bike tray the first time I went to hole in the fence. Put a screw in it so at least they'll need a simple tool to steal it next time. That being said, I wouldn't leave my bike up there for more than a few minutes. I don't trust the locks that well.

are you asking about the theft of the rack or what the rack is holding?

The actual rack itself.  I installed it last week, very nice.  I like it a lot better than the old trunk mount rack I was using.  Its pretty simple to install and take off so I will probably take it off when I am not using it.

Use the lock cores and you should be okay. They aren't theft proof but do make an effective deterrent for would be thieves wanting to steal your rack.
