    I got some like that off Ebay once. Don't remember if they are the same manufacturer. They worked very well but they are not 100% watertight. Other than finding a few drops of water in the bag after being caught in the rain I had no complaints.

    pop ups are good. i used a permatex black pipe dope on the seals and on the nuts to keep them tight. no water leaks even in a hard rain. been on for 4 years w/no issues. i got mine from the place that has the bag inserts. used hd bar and shield license plate bolts to fill the rivet holes. needed to GENTLY sand bore hole for latch to fit. dremel w/ sanding drum or die grinder w/ flap wheel. note gently above. good luck.
