I don't know about the key, but you can get a wide range of adapters to
carry bikes, surf boards, luggage etc. on the Thule.  I've had great
success using a pair of ratchet-type luggage straps on mine to carry a wide
range of items.  I also made a flat rack that sits between the rails for
carrying odd-shaped things.
