Need some ideas on fastening sesahorse case to bike
 
So I bought this little seahorse case to store a few things in. It fits perfectly behind my Givi rack. I added the aluminum cross bars in the picture. Now I just need some ideas for mounting box to bike. I was thinking some sort of QR quarter turn fasteners like Dsuz, but other than the metal tabs that you find on race bodywork, I haven't really worked with them enough to know what to order. I also don't want the fastener to impede much of the space inside. I'm usually pretty good at figuring this stuff out, but I wanted to see what ADV Rider says. Any ideas?

Here is a link to how I mounted a seahorse top case with camlocs - there may be something helpful for you here.

Appreciate it! I was reading about the camloc fasteners, but it's great to actually see them in action.

Many months later... I finally got around to mounting it. I originally did all the work to find the measurements for Southco / Dzus Lion fasteners, but when it came down to ordering them, I couldn't find anyone that had all the parts I needed. Ended up redoing all the measurements for Dzus Panex fasteners and got all the parts I needed from kurveygirl.com for <$30. I probably could have done a better job, but it's solid!

Thanks,

Thanks :) That's a Seahorse SE120. Can get them for $25 shipped on Ebay. Looks to be very nice and affordable American made box.

The inside isn't as pretty, but I'll get around to some pics. I originally wanted a fully sealed (I believe the industry term is 'encapsulated') low profile quarter-turn fastener so that it wouldn't interfere with the internal storage space and of course still be water tight.

Well, I spent many hours internetting w/o much. Camloc looked like they might have something to offer, but I can't remember why I didn't go with them - it may have been price. Some of these fasteners are very niche and can cost a ton. And then some had really high minimum orders if you could find them at all. In the end it was the trusty Dzus Panex.

Here's my invoice from Kurveygirl. There's a special formula for figuring out the length of fasteners you need, so make sure you get the right length!

Products
------------------------------<wbr>------------------------
4 x Special Length: 16mm Working Length Dzus, D-Ring, Silver (D8) () = $24.00
5 x Replacement Spring Plate: Yamaha P/N: 2TK-2177L-00-00 Dzus Rivet () = $3.75
1 x Spare Parts: 10pack D8 BLACK Retaining Washers - Dzus Panex (10-D8-Washer) = $2.00

Thank you very much!

I bought the Seahorse SE-300 Case
and want to use the quick relase mount to install.

Added a tool tube in the only free place I could find. Doesn't get in the way of anything so I think it'll work.
