After considering a number of options to install some tie down loops to my OEM panniers, I arrived at this solution completely by chance after being dragged (very reluctantly) around the local Ikea store.
I think it looks good and works well as I like to be able to open pannier lids when on the road without taking the stuff off the top of the box before opening them.

Yes Rok Straps are fantastic, but I would be a little worried about that dude in the video, looks like he has a lot of excess strap just hanging loose and if it would get caught in his chain drive things Could get very serious very quickly. Other than that he has a very nice demonstration.
i have been using Rok Straps for many years and they work great.

Hi Saint rob, i had been looking around and trying to find some luggage brackets of some sort to fit on my panniers, just like you were. So yesterday i thought i'm going to order some, but in black, they arrived this morning, fitted them this afternoon, really pleased with the look, thanks for pointing me in the right direction. The black covering on the lid i fitted a few weeks ago from my local sign makes shop. It was to hide a couple of scuff marks i'd made with my boots, getting off and on, when i was waiting for my hip replacement. PS, £3-95 delivery cost was less stressful than having to go to put up with going to the IKEA store in Leeds.

Glad you like the solution and I know what you mean about the delivery cost, not a bad shout that. I'd been dragged there for something else so it was a result when I spotted them.
