Default Replacement roof rack keys

So I have been wanting a set of oem racks for my Macan, found a used set in good condition with Allen tool, rubber strips, and bag on eBay for cheap with no key. I took a gamble figuring there must be a way to get new keys thinking similar to Thule locks.
I’m pretty sure these rails are made by the same company as most vw/Audi racks, but they only have a 3 digit code on them, numbers only, no “N” like most thule locks.
Found a guy on eBay who you just select what company, I chose Votex as the brand and then enter the key code. Got them in 3 days, and they work perfect.
Have his eBay and business card attached.
Just figured I would throw out a cheap solution to get duplicates or replace a missing key!

Thanks for the great lead on an extra roof rack key. May come in handy if I ever lose mine!

Oh cool. Glad you went ahead and confirmed that works. I am in need too and did not want to fork over $50 to Porsche.
