Hi everybody.
Did anybody remove the crossbars from his/her 4.4 Rav4? Looks like in order to prevent a quick theft of the crossbars Toyota came up with a quite original crossbars construction. The head of the locker has quite unusual configuration. I'm wondering if there is a special tool to turn that locker counterclockwise without scratching its head if we want to use just regular screwdriver?

there is a tool that comes with the crossbars to open that cover, look for it in the glove box, center console, or maybe with the jack

The "key" wasn't in the glove compartment or console, so I just used a big flat bladed screw driver like others have done, worked fine.
