Yeah, I agree with you craiger,about the rear latch.. On the side is definitely a better idea.
For those that have lids that rattle... is the seal still on the box? Mine is very quiet, only time I know it's there is if i have something inside that rattles from bouncing around.
After owning this one, I know I'd never buy a factory one unless it was super cheap. These with all the options at under 200, minus buying the Quick release mount and hardware from HD, are the steal of a lifetime. The previous owner of mine, used it all the time for 3 years, and I've had it on and off for a year, and put over 2000 miles on it this year on a couple of trips, and it's no worse for wear. Another benefit is it's Waaaay lighter then an original. Nice when a fixed piece hangs out over the back like they do..
Someone here even mentioned "Plastic hinges"????? Not on any I've seen.
No offense to anyone who has the HD model, but to most of us that only use a box occasionally, we don't need anything better....For what you save buying one of these, you could buy a Full exhaust, a Tuner, and Dyno time... I'd much rather have that stuff, that I would use all the time, as apposed to a rear box....Just IMO....
