Rob, I have the Hogcovers Speaker Covers and they work great.
They snap in place and stay on with no problems.

I had a set. Work as advertised. They do scratch easily (which is better than the bags taking a beating). I ended up having one blow off in Sturgis this year somewhere on I-90 (heavy cross winds). I gave the remaining one as a spare to my buddy who also had a set.

I've had sets for my old bike and now my new one. Haven't had any problems with them yet coming off. I've painted a set and stuck bling on them (I realize you won't be putting bling on yours) and haven't had issues with that either. They do scratch from whatever is sat on them or rubbed across them, but I don't care since I bought them for the purpose of protecting my lids.

Be selective in your battles, sometimes peace is better than being right.

I have a set and they work ok, but will scratch the bag lid itself if they get anything abrasive underneath. They will also rub the lids a little, even without foreign material. They just do not look good on a black bike like mine. I solved this by coating them on the outside with black Plastidip, look much better on the bike. I only use them when carrying a passenger. She manages to scuff the Hogcovers every time, so they are worth using and do protect the shiny black lids.

Scratches in Hog Covers can be rubbed out with Novus #2 and elbow grease. I had no problem with them coming off at 85 MPH. I did have some scratching occur in the clearcoat of my lids from dust that gets under the vertical edges of the long sides of the Hog Covers. I have thought of recommending that the company try putting the silicone adhesive that holds the covers on at the front and back, all the way around the covers. That could prevent dust from getting under the covers and would also prevent side winds from getting under there as well. I was going to try doing that myself but since I didn't know what kind of silicone they used I didn't want to take a chance of getting the covers stuck on the lids.

like others said the Hog Covers scratch easy and I also lost one going down the freeway. I never thought they looks very good but it did help the boot marks on my lids from my passengers boots on trips.
