These arrived with fairly sharp edges. I was concerned that they would rub and eventually cut through my pannier straps, so I filed and sanded down the edges that my straps will contact. With this modification, I am confident that these will perform well. It seems like a solid and very useful product.
Megan, thanks for the feedback. Our original design had those edges chamfered, but that step in the manufacturing process ran the cost per piece very high. We decided to have them tumbled instead. I can certainly understand where you are coming from, I had the same thoughts during initial prototyping and product testing. However, in testing and even after years of personal use and thousands in customers hands we haven't seen strap wear to be an issue. It definitely won't hurt to file them and give you some peace of mind. We appreciate your business and thanks for taking the time to send a review!
Great product. Totally happy with the service
These brackets allowed me to easily mount the hard rack onto my 2017 Honda Rally without having to make custom grooves under the rear fender. These mounts are very strong and easy to install.
Very nice piece of kit.A little larger would be great.
The quality of the products I purchased were top notch!
