Saddlebag attachment

I took off the left side saddlebag ... went I went to re-attach it, I can get the back clip locked into place but not the front. Is there a clip behind the attachment bracket that I could have bent?

Thanks for your help.

Try to get both of them engaged and locked at the same time. Also, the rear on the left side of my bike was pushed out, I used a pair of channel lock pliers to bend it back strait and after I got it to lock down again it was okay.

Sometimes the bottom rubber mount bumpers are not set on the bottom of the bag are not lined up with the tube rail support not allowing the Bail Head Pins to line up with the frame mount clips. Be sure the bag is completely seated and in the right spot front to back.

Figured it out

The clip was bent inward towards the rear wheel so that the stud could not engage sufficiently. Took a screwdriver and tweaked it back to the original form and all is good.

Thanks for your help.
