Regarding the pannier clips: I find it very simple to open the pannier, and let it flop open about 2-3 inches, and catch it against my leg. I found I can do this with a full "other" hand, and then grab the inside lip to let it down gently. Those clips will hold quite a bit of weight, if it's not thrown on them suddenly. Like we can all carry a 50 lb weight, but we can't catch it if thrown from a second story window. Seems like a simple solution to me.

I always let my lid down on my leg, seems like the safest way.
I don't let others open them, without instructions.

Same way for the openning of the cover for me Ligito . . . and nobody touch them if they not been show how to open and close the latch properly and only if they had pass their exam firST

I do use bag liner . . . in fact I do not need them .

I use "velcro" attach and band on many stuff that stay there all the time ,for the rest of it , here is a photo of wath I made myself to keep the stuff in place . . . http://www.st1300.us.com/album.php?a...&pictureid=251

Notice the quick plastic attach in the center of the elastic band . . . it is exactly the same brand and construction as the small original one that holds the cover from falling too far . . . an excact repliqua of it ,but, bigger and I found them,and the elastic band in length , in a sewing store.They are aftermarket "attach" for bicycle's helmet.

I also installed one of these kits to protect the paint. When the bag hits my leg, the finish isn't marred at all.

I put them on myself, so they don't look perfect, but if/when they come off, the paint underneath will still look great.
