Fixings inside Panniers and Top Box
« on: May 14, 2014, 09:52:17 am »
I want to set up my Top Box so that I can stow what I want in there securely.
Has anyone any experience of fixing things inside these boxes? They appear to be two layer structures and I obviously do not want to compromise the external appearance or weatherproofing, but neither do I like things moving around inside the boxes

Any Ideas?

Maybe some adhesive velcro strips? They would stick well to the smooth interior of the box and should securely hold any straps that you want to add. Also could be removed with no damage to the interior if and when you choose.

I have the inside of my topbox wallpapered with velcro. I have zipper bags, chargers etc etc stuck on in there works great.

I have GIVI E55 top  box. I am using utulity carpeting from Home depot. I fixed it with velcro. I used to have BMW K1200LT. Its top box came with internal carpeting like that too.

The bottom half is definitely two layers.  As is the top.  I tried and tried to take the bottom apart for a project.  No luck.   Depending on what you are trying to accomplish and if you don't mind putting holes on the inside, you might consider short (3/8") sheet metal screws from the inside.   Another option may be to fabricate someting that is compartmentalized that just sits in the bottom.   In. Out. As desired.

I put in a foam layer on the floor of the box, then attached velcro straps, holds everything in place.

I used to have a plastic matrix that you could clip in plastic uprights almost wherever you like, it was designed for drawers but it could be shaped to fit the bottom. Sorry I can't remember the make or where I got it from many years ago.

If you're going to be carrying very delicate stuff like cameras and accessories on a regular basis, you could get some of the high density foam inserts used for instrument cases and shape that as appropriate.

Camera bag makers do various accessories like dividers with velcro ends to fit their bags, or you could just have a good close look at their stuff and make your own to suit.
