I went with the Whispbar flush. I personally liked the lower profile and the locking ability as opposed to the OEM ones. By no means is it gonna stop a determined thief, but it will be a deterrent to a casual scumbag who will probably move onto the next car.

The factory ones can be removed with an allen wrench from what I understand. The Whispbars do cost quite a bit more--especially since you say you can get the stock ones for free.

For what it's worth, the HighRollers don't lock to the crossbars. The Front Loaders do and is the route I went. No problems so far.
