So the OEM bike mount then has no security for locking the bike down either? That's a deal breaker then because theres no way I'm leaving my bike on my roof if I want to stop at a store or restaurant while I have it with me.
It looks like you can lock the bike rails, just not the rails to the car? Pretty noticeable if someone is stealing the entire rack assembly
