Thule makes racks and cargo boxes for sports and outdoor adventure. The Thule products mount to automobiles and are modular in design. Because they are modular the Thule products accept many accessories and add-ons like the Lock Cores. Thule Lock Cores are just as the name suggests; they are modular locks that fit into the Thule locks and are used to prevent theft. Thule Lock Cores are interchangeable and easily removed providing you have the Thule change key that came with the Lock Cores.
