Roof rack locks come in various forms, including key-operated locks and combination locks. Key-operated locks require a specific key to open and close them, providing an added layer of security against unauthorized access. Combination locks, on the other hand, use a numerical code that needs to be entered correctly in order to unlock or lock the device. The primary purpose of a roof rack lock is to deter thieves from stealing valuable items attached to the roof rack. By securing these items with a lock, it becomes much more difficult for potential thieves to remove them quickly and inconspicuously. Additionally, a locked roof rack provides peace of mind for vehicle owners who may need to leave their belongings unattended for extended periods.
Among the locks used on roof racks, cam locks are the most common type. Cam locks include blade cam locks, tumbler cam locks, tubular cam locks and Ambient cam locks. Cam locks are a popular choice for securing roof racks due to their simplicity and effectiveness. These locks consist of a cylindrical body with a keyhole at one end and a rotating cam at the other. When the key is inserted and turned, the cam rotates, locking or unlocking the mechanism. One of the main advantages of cam locks in roof rack locks is their ease of use. With just a simple turn of the key, users can secure their roof racks in place, providing peace of mind during transportation. Additionally, cam locks are known for their durability and resistance to tampering. The rotating cam creates a tight grip on the rack's crossbars, preventing any unwanted movement or theft. Among them, the tubular lock is a kind of lock that controls the opening of the lock through the internal structure, and has a good safety factor.
