    I wanted to pass along a good experience I had with ordering a product to help maintain the shape of my Leather saddlebags. I ordered last Friday, They arrived Monday, & I installed them this afternoon... The product is made from ABS type plastic, were relatively easy to install & I think they should do the job very nicely, Also were at a reasonable price via E-Bay.
    "Saddlebag Shapers" They are Bike specific so if interested be sure to let them know the year model of your bike...

    I installed the "GotSaggyBags" kit on a prior FLSTC and was **VERY** satisfied with the way they reshaped the bags.

    gotsaggybags.com gets my vote, excellent results when I did them on a friend's Heritage. His bags were drooping and all collapsed, now they look like new. Must do the whole kit to get the results.

    I saw the bag shapers on ebay and would like to know how they attach the piece to the top of bag.

    They have a glue or epoxy that fastens them into the cover.I did mine a year and a half ago.Its a pretty easy job and looks good.

    Does it keep the Lids from rolling up on the edges?

    They work great, a little pricey for what they are and do. The good news is, most of time if you get heavy guage leather bags...they hold their shape, so all you really need is a properly sized insulated, (for stiffness and for carrying cold ones) nylon bag to allows contents of your bags to be unloaded /loaded quickly.

    I purchased mine for BOSS Bags out of Wisconsin... They are made from a heavy gage plactic and are riveted in place. They also add a "hasp" under the lid edge so you can lock them. You can send them in for installation or just stop by and they do it on the spot (20-30 minutes). Motorcycle Saddlebags By Boss Bags 1-888-853-9975

    Since my 2005 Heritage was brand new I have being using a couple of pillows inside the saddlebags. Not expensive and keep the shape of saddlebags like new
