Right, Ive sent emails to Ford who said and confirmed that unfortunately and they are unsure why they were designed like this that the roof rails are not securely locked when putting onto the roof rails as its just a twist screw with a black cap.

I really want to purchase some but are worried about this security concern.

So, Ive been thinking and need someone with the roof rails to confirm something for me and potentially take a pic!?

The bolt / screw with the cap that is twisted into position, can this be removed and replaced with something else?

Reason I ask is could this potential solution work? I know I could go for something like an M6 security screw but again someone with the right tool could still unlock these and take them off my car.

I know its the wrong thread but something like this?

I thought I'd read somewhere on here? that you can lock them on with a padlock but not sure as I don't have them.

I felt the same about my bars and kept removing them, after getting fed I have just left them on and have had no problems.
