« on: August 19, 2014, 03:02:25 pm »
so, when i turn the key to "unlock", i can't open pannier side bags or topbox. I have to turn
key to "open" position to open boxes. Is this normal ?? thanks.

I think I know of what  you speak.  You may have to turn the key just a wee bit past the "unlock" position.   On mine there is a narrow range of space for the key to line up and allow opening.  For me it was almost a learned  'feel'.   It's not always convenient but I think it helps to have some slight pressure on the latch handle as you turn the key if you have two hands available.  All that said, I think you'll learn the feel of things.

Otherwise I don't know.  If it was just one of the locks, something may be busted, but all three?

Also, slight upwards pressure, as if trying to remove the key, while turning to the unlock position, helps find the sweet spot.

Don't look at the markings, look at the bar that slides out of the handle.

Although I do as Ernest T suggests (look at the bar) in my case it makes no difference.  The markings for lock, open and carry are spot on and work just fine.  Does that mean  I have a broken set because everything works perfectly  :008:

My pannier locks work 'as intended'. The detents stop at the 'unlock' position to let me open the case(s) and for pannier removal the 'remove' position is a spring-loaded additional twist to release the handle(s) and lift cases off.
