Whether your crossbars lock or not, if a thief wants them, he will get them. Instead of using the OEM crossbars, I use the Thule crossbars with the rubber-coated steel straps that wrap around and clench my rails. I have the lock cores in these Thule bars.
So there's no prying the crossbars free; if the thief wants my rack and cargo box (which also locks), he's going to have to cut something, which could still happen.
