Bolts for Tourpack and Mount

I bought this mount for my tourpack from eBay.



Well, it didn't come with any bolts. Does anyone know what size bolts are needed to mount my tourpack to this?

Your tour pack should come with a flat steel plate with either the bolts as part of it or in a bag. If your adding an older TP then you might have to hit the hardware store. I'm thinking they are 3/8" bolts but don't hold me to that.

Currently bikeless but sticking around for knowledge.

local hardware store it is. trying to find the correct MOCO hardware will be more of a hassle than its worth. If it were me, I'd find a spare bolt in my garage that is both long enough and the correct diameter to fit both the TP and the mount then hit the local mom and pop Hardware store to have them grab me 4 bolts, 4 flat washers, 4 lock washers, and 4 self-locking nuts. Put 1 flat washer on each bolt, slide the bolt through the tour pack (from the inside), place the tp on the mount, then slide 1 lock-washer on the exposed bolt shaft of the bolt, then place the self-locking nut. Torque snug, but don't crack the tourpack!

Is the bottom of the tourpack suppose to be bare or is there suppose to be a thin metal plate?

What he said, I would add to buy everything in stainless steel if possible. And Nyloc nuts. I used four 1/4" bolts, but I have an aftermarket Tour Pack and the holes in my rack are not big enough for 3/8".
Lowes has all I needed.

There is a thin metal plate in mine along with a felt formed liner, but that came that way from the MoCo. Again, if it were me I'd go down to the local box store and pick up some sheet steel,(look in the HVAC/heating section) and get a piece of square air duct material. It'll probably be 16/18 gauge, very thin but thick enough for your purpose. Trim it to size and place that in the bottom of your tour pack for strength. Of course you'll have to drill it for the mounting holes, but that's easy too. Just trim it to the correct size for the inside of the TP then take it out and place it on the TP mount so that it is in the position you want the TP to sit on it , mark the holes from the mount and the TP then drill baby drill!

You can find the steel t pak plates on ebay for dirt cheap. They have the studs on them already. You're gonna want some type of plate in the bottom of the pak, otherwise it's gonna eventually crack or the bolts/washers will pull thru the plastic. The plate makes it so the pak has some rigidity and gives it an even, sturdy mounting point.
