    I have one bag that doesn't want to stay latched unless I lock it. The manual talks about adjusting the latch "fingers" but isn't very clear. Any info on just what you bend?

    Everytime I take off my seat I have to go through the adjustment thing. It is a PITA but what I do is to take loose the bolt just a little so I can move it around to get the right angle then when it is latched I try to tighten it just enough to hold it then I take the bag off and tighten it all the way. I do hate going through that though

    Thanks, once I got in my ratty clothes and sat down where I could get a look at it I figured it out. Works fine now.
