Keeping an Honest Person Honest
I’ve talked with several of you about your fears of having your bags snatched from your rack while it is locked to the street sign at the corner of Scum and Villainy Street. Many Ironweed owners have opted to just remove the bags and take them with you. An alternative would be securing the pannier to the rack. One Ironweedian recommended using heavy zip ties to secure the upper hooks to the rack – a technique that I use. This is a simple and low-cost effort. It’s not theft-proof, but it keeps someone from making a grab for the pannier and, when secured tightly and trimmed, requires a sharp knife or pair of side cutters to get it off. Again, not completely theft-proof, but keeps an honest man/woman honest.
