Some may think it’s just downright blasphemous to make an insult to the absolute must have, Ortlieb bags.
BUT…how far did you get when those damn clips started falling out? How far did you get before you lost one? Have you looked how much they cost? Let alone the shipping for such little bastard plastic pieces.
Well, with combined brain power of myself and Brandon…we devised a little method to get rid of the clips all together and to prevent the noise they make when bouncing down a broken shale “road” and sneaking past police checkpoints.
Additional pieces were placed to prevent hot spots.
I have Surly racks, Brandon had Nitto – this method worked on both. We have the identical classic rolltop bags.
Nothing a little duct tape, a few zip ties, and some hosing from your local hardware stare. (In China: WuJin – 5Gold)
So, take your clips out all together and find an alternative method.
