Saddlebag Fasteners/Bolts

Ok, I like to think I am a fairly intelligent person and reasonably computer literate, but I need some help. I remember sometime in the past reading about a kit you could buy that had bolts to replace the stock saddlebag fasteners, and if I remember correctly the guys who made them rode sharks. They may have even been a site sponsor, but no luck in finding it anywhere when I did a search on the forum. Can anyone help? My neighbor just bought a Street Glide a couple months ago and is worried about the bags falling off. I have the Ultra guards, so am not as worried.

One of the guys that was selling them was 93-331-29psi. Not sure if he still does or not. You can get what you need from Lowes. Give me until tomorrow and I will pics and Lowes item numbers for what you need. Very simple mod.

Go to Lowes and get the following:

4 each stainless 5/16 18 SAE thread 1 1/12 inch long Allen head bolts
4 ea stainless flat washers with a outer diameter of 1 inch
4 sa stainless lock washers
4 ea 5/16 u-spring nuts or commonly called j-nuts Lowes item number 139391.
The spring nuts will be in there automotive specialty boxes located in the hardware nut and bolt department.

Just pop of the spring clips on the bag mounts, slip on the new spring nuts and bolt them up.

You will save money and shipping time by getting it yourself.

Thanks all!!! The baggerbolts was the one I was thinking of. I will look into the hardware from Lowe's as a viable option as well, Dan is kinda tight so you never know. I personally like the other set with the black handles, I wonder if they would interfere with the liners though. Again, really appreciate all the speedy responses.

The bagger bolts kit comes with the same stuff you can buy at Lowes. I'm pretty sure they also carry the knobs if you prefer them over the bolts.

A forum member was running the Monkey Knobs and her bag fell off. She admitted it was her fault, she should have checked them more often, but hers loosened up over time.

I doubt that would happen with Bagger Bolts or something similar. Course if I had Monkey Knobs my OCD a$$ would give the Monkey Knobs a twist everytime I opened my saddlebags. One thing for sure I feel better ever since I changed out the fasteners on mine.
