Newer saddlebag latch

My searches are coming up with nothing. Dunno if I have the correct phrasing.
Anyway, I rented an ElectraGlide Rushmore and it had saddlebags with a handle latch on the inner side of the bag. You could open the bag up while still sitting on the bike.
I loved it! Is there a conversion kit or a place that sells the bags?
I'm assuming that most of the HD saddle bags would fit each other bike. Maybe not.

The design of the bags changed in 2014. Prior to that they are a pain in the ass. The bags are slightly different sizes. I have heard of some people putting the newer bags on on older bikes but have not seen it and don't know what is required.

The new bags & latches were part of the Rushmore changes introduced in '14. Don't know if your current sled can be modified.

Here's one after-market solution

Like already stated, the bags changed on the 14+ models and I haven't seen anything on the market currently to do this revised set up. If you do end up finding somebody or something please posted here on the forum. Good Luck

The Brukus solution cited above is a quarter of that price, if that's a criteria.
