I did not use the Caribou setup to stick the Pelicans to the SW-Motech rack, but went with Twisted Throttle's Quick Release Mounting Kit.

I replaced the lock mechanisms with a simple bolt and wingnut with a cotter pin drilled into place to keep the nuts from walking away. I also find the bolt setup to be more field serviceable than the locks. If you are concerned with keeping the bags ability to shear off when you look at them wrong, you can always use lesser diameter bolts.

The bolt is mounted to the rack from the bottom up in this order: bolt; fender washer; rack; fender washer; nut
The case mount drops over the bolt assembly and is held in place with another fender washer and a wingnut. I also used the rubber washers that come with the mounting kit as a spacer inserted into the mounting kit hole.

Visited Twisted Throttle again today...
