The wave washer in the middle of the original clamp system is a weak design. The metal will bend around the washer and the four screws. The fact is with a heavy loaded pannier it cannot help but flex there with that hand nut standing off. With my inserts there's now a big area to take the stress.

Max Vibration and the pucks...

I got an email today and thought I'd pass the info along with my thoughts on how to fix the problem. The email was about a Baja trip and the vibration due to conditions were making the jam nut/hand nut back off during the ride. I replied to the email with:

This is the real answer for those conditions. I may put a note on the thread and update the sheet I send out to recommend the above solution. I think most people haven't put them to this kind of test but this info is important to those that might.
I think this is the solution for anyone out there that may be having any loosening issues. Since the pucks are slippery, and extreme vibration can loosen things up, please add a more secure jam nut setup if your riding conditions merrit it. I haven't had problems on my bike but I haven't put things to the the stress of Baja. If your planning a trip like this consider the more secure jam nut setup.

BTW: Use a closed end wrench if your using the nylon nut too.

Best regards,
Jon

Good point, and one that I always do as a matter of fact anway to be honest.

Works on Homemade Mermite Cans too

Added them to the puck system I have on Mermite conversion cans on the KLR - better contact (not 100% because of the ridges on the Mermites but an improvement). Seems a bit more snug as well, rather than metal-on-metal.

Thanks!

I first saw these things on an Africa (Transalp??) with *polished* Zega's
at WARPED this year and was blown away at the simplicity of this thing, and how much better it made the Zega go on/off.

The previous owner dropped the bike once badly on the left side on concrete, so the left box isnt true anymore and digs into the box whenever i tighten it... This, Im sure, will alleviate this problem.

This guy is rushing them to the west coast for me so that I can add them to my boxes before I leave on my summer trip!!


awesome.....!

cheers!
