15mm Thru Axle Lock

So I just picked up my new Yeti ASR 5C last night and got the Yakima adapter so I could put it on my roof rack. The bummer here is that there is no good way to lock the bike to the rack now. I don't trust a cable and a big U-lock might mess things up over time from bumps and vibration.

It seems that there should be a thru axle with a key lock on the end to prevent it from turning (locks against fork, etc.). I have been searching around and I can't find anything.

Anyone know of something, or should I just draw up plans and apply for a patent?


P.S. It is snowing like mad here, so I will have to save a bike review for a later time. All I can do now is stare at it.

Draw the plans and patent it. Make sure it's compatible with the Yakima and Thule lock cores so that everything can be keyed alike.

I had that worry when I was using a Fork-Ups w/my DH bike on the roof; but I consoled myself at the time that it at least took wrenches (and odd ones at that for my fork) to attack it.
