Thule is a Swedish company that is very big over here in Europe, most people use boxes though as they are lockable and you cannot see what is in them...
Not too sure what availability you have over there, but something that hooks into the central locking is awesome as you don't need keys and can't forget to lock them...
The other advantage is the extras you can put in them, as they are watertight, and as the roads get slushy etc, you don't get dirty gear...
Not so sure if i would use the locks without it being a box for security reasons, i know they still lock, but everything is on show...
