Stratoliner Bag Attachment Fix
I've seen a few posts from Strat owners complaining about the problematic (dzuz) fasteners used to attach the side bags to the bag frame. Of course many owners have no problem with the original fasteners and that's great. For those who want a faster, more secure solution, keep reading.
- Quantity of 6 Clip Nuts 1/4-20 (also known as extruded u-nuts)
- Quantity of 6 knobs with 1" 1/4-20 stud
I found the parts at Orchard Supply Hardware (California only), I also found everything at the McMaster Carr industrial supply website.
Two photos attached: Look at the attached pictures and you'll know how to do it.
Print the pictures and take them with you so you can wave them around at the hardware store or fastener supply, no talking necessary.
Takes about ten minutes to change over to new fasteners.
After you're done: Just spin the knobs and it takes 15 seconds to remove a bag and about 30 seconds to mount a bag. Very secure!
Good luck, Satch
