Why Easy Brackets?

Easy Brackets are the most advanced and reliable bolt-on quick release saddlebag mounting system available. They include built-in locking mechanisms with internal retractable lock covers that retract when you push the key into the lock - then spring back into place when you remove the key. This high tech design protects your lock from dirt, oil, and grime! All necessary hardware required to mount the brackets and your saddlebags to your motorcycle is included. Nothing else is needed! The kit comes with four (4) electro-polished stainless steel docking posts and bolts that mount to your motorcycle fender rail and a complete set of hardware for your saddlebags (the docking posts and bolts are electro-polished to give them an attractive, non-rusting chrome-like look). Made in America and satisfaction guaranteed!

Each bracket is made of 12 gauge steel and has a black powder coating to provide years of attractive and durable service.

Brackets Designed for Each Model - Not One Size Fits All
Because Easy Brackets are made specifically for your year, brand, and model motorcycle, you will receive all of the hardware you need with your Easy Brackets order. The docking posts and bolts are especially designed to work perfectly with your motorcycle, eliminating the hassles of adding spacing washers to either line up the docking posts or to achieve a good, tight fit. Clean, slick, effective, and secure!

Strong and Secure
Easy Brackets are made from high-quality 10 to 12 gauge steel and are equipped with a barrel key locking mechanism. This barrel key lock provides extra security and increased safety when the saddlebags are mounted on the motorcycle. The lock is also equipped with a spring-loaded cover that protects the lock from water, oil, and grime!

Brackets That Are Easy To Install
These incredible bolt-on saddlebag supports make mounting your bags a breeze. You don't need a degree or a dedicated afternoon to install. Other than a drill (to drill the holes in your bags), the Easy Brackets do not require any special tools. Most hard, flat back saddlebags work perfectly with Easy Brackets.

The Easy Bracket Saddlebag Bolt-on Quick Release System allows you to attach your motorcycle saddlebags safely and securely. When installed, simply unlock and lift the saddlebags off your motorcycle. The seamless design leaves no ugly hardware behind. Here's how to install them:

  1. Replace your normal fender rail bolts with our special Easy Bracket docking posts.
  2. Secure the Easy Bracket mounting plate to the back of your saddlebag.
  3. Place the saddlebags/mounting plate system onto the docking posts. An easy lock mechanism makes sure that the saddlebags are secure to your motorcycle yet leave only small docking posts when the bags are removed.

  • No Additional Hardware Needed
