But it looks like you got things nicely sorted, so it's all good.
I'm not 100% sure what you mean by the 'pivoting strap mounts to the bag'. If you mean the Rack Loops themselves; they are intended to rotate to enable pack of differing sizes to be mounted inline with - and across - the bike in their purest form (i.e. fixed directly to the fender, as opposed to them being deconstructed and fitted to a rack. But if you can elaborate, or post a pic, I'll be able to give you a definitive answer.
Incidentally, I could also fix you up with a pair of the subframe loops from our US Alloy Hook Straps, which you could attach to one of the lattice struts on the rack itself. Just a thought...
I have the subframe loops that came with my US Alloy hook straps and did try them in all kinds of different locations on the lattice work. That is how I determined the location of the Rack Loops.
The pivoting mount I am referring to is where the over the seat strap joins the bag and also where the lower ladder loop joins the bag. Both of those mounts swivel. I was not sure if they are supposed to or not??
If I am still not describing the parts correctly, I can get photo's tomorrow.
