Just received the 10 in cam-lock system. It installed without a problem on my old and muched loved set of Cannondale panniers. The one thing I never liked about the old bags was the fact that they had to be zip-tied to the rack. Your system fixed all of that. Now when I ride to the gym or somewhere I have to lock my bike I can just click them off and take them with me.
The system is completely adjustable, strong, versatile and I like them so much that when I buy a set of panniers for the front rack or another set for the rear they will have this set of mounts.
Bar none the Best System out thereBy
A stellar example of engineering excellence. The best pannier latching system out there. The weakest part of most bags is the latching point but these are absolutely bomb proof. Thick Aluminium hooks that will not break nor crack. Retro fitting a set of these on to your non Arkel bags will strengthen and stablize your load. Only caution is to make sure the cam is engaged & not obstructed by straps or cords. Happy trails
Great for retrofits or new builds...By
I'm glad these are offered as "parts," as they're wonderful for building specialty panniers (bucket or pack-board), as well as upgrading other "lesser brands." <g></g>
The kit has very good workmanship and is very strong. My Kirtland panners required a small amount of modification, but no special tools are needed after installation. There are even spare attachment screws included.
