I have always loved saddlebags and use one daily. This device makes them even better by allowing you to pack and unpack away from your bike...a very nice thing for a commuter. I mounted mine with the yoke of the R50 inside the saddle frame so as to shorten up the rear extension and also prevent the bag from suddenly falling off your bike if the fasteners do indeed come loose at exactly the same time without you somehow being aware of it.

Easy to install and use. Can hold a full size saddlebag with weight, and doesn't move around.
Holds the bag a tiny bit lower than saddle loops would, so make sure you have clearance above the rear wheel, or a small rack to support the bottom of the bag.
Its probably a good idea to loctite the bolts that attach it to the saddle rails, if you're riding off road. Fortunately Rivendell also carries spares :-)
