A great upgrade for any Pannier
I bought another brand of pannier that had the features I needed at a great price but the mounting system did not fit the racks well and had very little adjustment. I found The Plastic material and poorly engineered locking system was risky on a long tour on rough roads with little support. I have had plastic clips fail on tour while carrying any significant weight, especially in cold weather. Its no fun mickey mousing a solution to broken hooks miles from nowhere in a snowstorm.
The Arkel CamLock Hook Kit provides an ideal solution. These are a serious upgrade to any pannier for only $25.00 per bag. They are very well engineered utilizing aluminum (Not Plastic) Rails and hooks That are adjustable to almost any Rack system. The Nylon Hook inserts provide a scratch free mount that will not slip or rattle. The Camlock system was easy to install (the hardest part was removing the original hardware) and provides the sense of security needed on tour. Thanks to Arkel for providing their technology to upgrade Non- Arkel products.
