Security of Factory Roof Rails
I have a 2012 Equinox LT and am pondering what kind of cross rails to purchase. The factory rails seem just fine, but it is not clear if there is any type of locking mechanism, or how prone to theft bikes and racks etc are when on the roof. Is it possible to remove the roof rails all in one piece if there is a bike rack on there or two? I intend to be carrying some v expensive mountain and downhill bikes up there, and am concerned about the whole thing getting slid off the roof and thrown into a pickup. Also, I live in the city, so I am also concerned about the bike racks and cross rails themselves being stolen, even while bikeless. The bike racks include a lock, but if the cross rails can all be slide out in one piece, that means nothing. Aftermarket option seem to at least offer locking cores etc.
Thanks in advance.
