Wondered if anyone has experienced the same problem I have with the saddlebag locks.
It seems like when the lock is in the locked position a very small portion of the locking flanger engages both the saddlebag lock and the mounting lock.
This allows me to pull up on the handle with very little pressure and disengage the lock.
There doesn't appear to be any kind of adjustment. The flange should be about an eight of an inch longer....but then there may not be sufficient space for it to reach the unlock position.
Hopefully, one of you has found the same problem and corrected it with a simple little fix.
Thanks

When all else fails look at the directions!
I looked at the picture of the installation of the lock cylinder and .....xxxx....I have the plate reversed.
Thanks for thinking about it.

You know what the most successful people say? Fail early. Fail often. (And please share your experience.)

When I installed the locking plate I had the protruding part facing out instead of in.
I was consistent, did them both that way. Fixing was simple, turn it over. Works fine now.
