SaddlebagSecure by Brukus
Review by: GovDog76 (Ian)
Ordering/shipping: Product is easily ordered through the Brukus website: www.brukus.com.
Minor annoyance is the need to use PayPal rather than a credit card, but understandable for a small company keeping costs down. No big deal. Got order confirmation immediately, and shipping confirmation shortly after. (Brukus note - you can use any credit card through Paypal and do not have to have a Paypal account.)
Ordered late in the day on a Monday (about 3:30pm EDT).
Package arrived on Thursday. Very fast shipping.
Packaging: The product comes nicely packaged, with instructions, a nice "thank you" letter, and a sheet of information about other products. The component parts are neatly put together into
functional groups, rather than just being a bag of loose parts. The parts all appear very high quality. Included is the security torx
tool to install and remove the security bolts.
Installation: So straightforward as to not require the instructions that are included. After removing the bags, simply use a small screwdriver to pry off the OE spring clips from the mounts. Be careful that the
screwdriver or other implement of destruction does not slip and damage adjacent paint, etc. Just take a bit of time with the removal. Once OE is removed, simply snap the new threaded Brukus clips onto the mounts, then replace the bags and thread in the security bolts.
Tighten the bolts (not too tight) and you are done.
Finished product: The result of your efforts is a very clean installation, with the security bolt heads on the inside of the bag, and the threaded clips and bolt ends on the back of the bag mounts. This set up makes it impossible to remove the locked bag, as some have experienced
with the stock spring arrangement. It also makes it unlikely that a casual thief would be able to remove the unlocked bag. Obviously, nothing keeps a thief from carrying a security torx tool of
the right size, but if they are that sophisticated they will probably steal your whole bike rather than just the bags! Also, as forum member Ichiban pointed out, this arrangement will keep your bags from accidentally coming loose and skidding down the road.
Final thoughts: The Brukus SaddlebagSecure product is fast and easy to get, the sellers are nice folks, and the product is exactly as advertised. I initially wondered if I was overpaying to spend $30 for a security torx bolt, but after seeing the product I realize that much of what you are paying for are the precisely manufactured threaded clips that the bolt screws into. They are really well made.
It is certainly possible to go to Home Depot and get
some parts for a DIY version of this, but it will not have
the security or the elegance of the Brukus solution. A
EDITORS NOTE: In my opinion… if it slows a thief
down they will quickly move to a new target rather
than spend the time fiddling around. This review is

"I have SaddlebagSecure™ system and it gives me peace of mind when I park my bike at a motel at night. I no longer take my saddlebags off to keep them from being stolen. The system is inexpensive and easy to install. I highly recommend the SaddlebagSecure™ system as an added security device when traveling."
"The Brukus (SaddlebagSecure™) kit arrived today. It took me about 2 minutes per bag to install. ...a standard torx bit will not work on them. Good quality, well packed, and arrived quickly. I'm very happy with this kit. One less thing to worry about on the road or while stopped at a motel, etc.

Man, these are worth the money! Buy these from this seller!

I just installed a set of saddlebag fasterners from Brukus on an '08 EG. They are stainless steel, outstanding quality, and easy to install! Great product!
I received your SaddlebagSecure Kit today and it is simply outstanding. All stainless steel and easy to install. Also I hadn't realized just how easy it is for a thief to steal the bags from the bike; just a screwdriver and a few seconds and they are gone!
I read about your product on HDForums.com.
Thank you for an excellent product and the fast service.
The Saddlebag Secure is a great product! Actually does what it is supposed to, extremely easy and fast to install and very reasonably priced. There are more expensive setups on the market but I can't imagine why....Thanks Brukus!
I ordered your SaddlebagSecure system and like the idea so well that I ordered the seat bolt and an extra wrench! Both are great products! I'll be recommending both to my fellow Harley Riders.
You can absolutely use my quote/comments. When I find something I think is a useful product, I am all about getting the word out about it! And thanks for the quick reply. In most instances I never hear a word concerning my feedback about a product.
Tom P., Broken Arrow, OK
I think you have an excellent product and I will be telling my buddies about it...
Very good, once again thanks. You have come up with a very good product that quite honestly needs to be brought to the attention of Harley owners with saddlebags. I have a funny feeling you are going to get very busy. Best of luck.
We went to Americade and parked our bikes and it was nice not to have to worry about anything.

I just put mine on for my trip. Very nice product, good instructions, quick & easy install. A well made good product.
This is my second order, put them on my 04 SEEG and what a great idea for securing bags. Now I'm sending a set to my cousin as a gift. He's going up the coast for a week and I want him to ride/rest easy.
All the best,
~ OUTSTANDING PRODUCT!!! 3 min easy installation!
~ Put them on my bike back in April, before I made my first long trip... didn't want to remove and haul my bags up to the hotel room every night. The product is definitely more secure than the OEM HD bail head stud. Thank you Brukus!

Harley Fender Security Screw
If you're gonna secure your saddlebags you my as well chip in a few more bucks and get the fender security screw from Brukus. One tool fits both kits!
Super easy installation; remove OEM screw and drop this one in using the provided tool! Nothing simpler!
With these installed you'll have the peace of mind that all your bike accessories will still be there while you browse the concessions at the bike shows!
