Red face Lock on saddlebag for FLD; Detachables lock

I guess yes to both questions. There is a lock inside each saddlebag that when turned in the right direction (of course I can't remember and always have to be looking at it) AND if the saddlebag is mounted right in the first place always prevents the bag from falling off. Just about 11,000 miles now on my FLD purchased in July 2011 and I have never had a saddlebag fall off or even show "loose".

As to the detachables set up, yes there is a lock available. 90300048 is the Harley Part number (that's for the chrome one; I can't find the black one on the Harley site anymore for some reason.) $79.95 HD list price.

Kit includes TWO locks, which for me was mostly good since I interchange a sissy bar/backrest/luggage rack with a tourpak on my bike. Not totally good news because I wanted to convert my existing detachable latches from black to chrome, bought a pair of chrome ones, then figured out I need to buy another pair of chrome upgraded latches and throw one of each pair away: the detachable chrome locks only fit on the left side of the accessory, and the chrome latches are unique on each side as well. Sigh.

Welcome - Congrats on the new bike and that sucks -

Yes, Brukus, one of the vendors on this site has a selection of items. I just picked up a set of hardware for my bike.

But do like TGWN suggests and you will find posts and additional suggestions that will help.

Good luck -

sorry to hear that happen to you but it is easy to do.. as others have said it is a positive lock and the bags are a bitch to seat all the way.. if that lock doesnt turn fully and drop to lock.. push on the bags again until it does or you risk losing a bag as you have found out.
