    Pannier Lock

    Have had this bike since 10/2019 and have used both panniers, sparingly since purchase with no issues.
    Today I went to put my spare helmet in the R/H pannier....no luck, the key wouldn't turn.
    Have tried moving the handle, while turning key, where the latch engages with no luck also

    Sprayed some Kroil (a creeping type lubricant) into the keyhole and latch area and will let set overnight.

    Has anyone else had the problem? :187:

    Something similar happened to me once.

    What I did was pull the key into the cylinder and pull up, the entire cylinder came out with the key inside.

    Once the cylinder was out and without removing the cylinder key, I sprayed it with oil, reintroduced the cylinder with the key inserted into the cylinder and everything works again.

    Just went and fiddled with it some more. Key will only turn halfway to the unlock icon. Will let it sit overnight (sprayed some more kroil in the keyhole and latch areas) and give it another go in the morning.

    When testing again, try turning the key while pressing the saddlebag door inward.

    If you see that it does not open. Do not force the wrench as it will split the inside of the cylinder or wrench.

    The lock on my right side bag is kind of 'finnicky' for lack of a better term.  It moves kind of roughly, and it often doesn't quite stay in the unlocked position quite right, so even though it's supposed to be unlocked, the metal tab in the locking mechanism doesn't fully clear button to open the bag.  I've used some lock lubricant on it, which seems to have helped some.

    If it says that it rotates something, as well as half of its route.

    You can do the following:
    Turn the key to the point where it gets stuck, then grab a tornavis and insert it into the blade and it should slide into its open position.

    I'm going to take a picture of it. "A photo is worth more than 100 words"

    Will try when I get home. Only concern is if I am able to get it open, will I be able to close and lock it again.
    Only saving grace is I have a little over a year warranty left and if need be, this issue should be covered!

    Note in the position that I have left the key, if the key reaches approximately that distance and insert the screwdriver as I show in the photo you should be able to open the suitcase.

    With the blade of the screwdriver, you should only insert the tab into the suitcase.
