Pelican case accessories

Ordered a set of cases for the bike. Have any of you guys "improved' yours. Straps to hold your gear in or something to keep them from flopping open.
I'm looking for good ideas.
Thanks

Added "Footman Loops" to my Pelican Topbox for straping stuff down to it. I know you are talking about sidecases, just thought I'd throw that in too. BTW, I have the Loops for sale if you want some.....:mrgreen: (and I'm a stone's throw away!!!)

Got the Moose Expedition mounts so lots of places to strap down.

I put nylon straps between the lid and the case so the lids wouldn't just flop open when I opened them on the bike. That also makes them serviceable as a makeshift table when you're camping.

Just a sticker or two from everywhere I've taken the case! My father was a photographer who would always cover his pelican cases with stickers from the many places work took him. I've now taken over with both my own camera case and panniers.

What type of mount will the Pelican side cases mount to ? Is there an adapter made that would allow me to use them with my givi side case mounts? as for as the top case what mount is used for that ?I hope to see everyone on May 15-18 in Robbinsville , NC for the 2014 Gathering of the riders of the STROM !!

Twisted Throttle and Caribou Cases both sell mounting kits for the Givi racks. I think you can also use Happy Trail mounts for the sidecases.

I ordered the Moose Expedition racks. They come with a quick release setup.
Motorcycle Super Store + B&H Camera = $580 for the setup. Cheapest setup I could figure.
AACB Blacksmith conference next weekend so I gonna miss y'all. Bummer since it is so close.

pelican cases

I mounted mine on to happy trails racks
but mounted them with the tops to the racks.
i drilled some extra holes in the racks and use some aluminum flat bar inside the case to hold it better.
i put the larger side on the outside, so the big part opens and your stuff doesn't fall out allover the place
I used some cord from blinds (very strong) and loops to hold them open.

eagle creek single/ double cubes fit exactly into the case.

also put a tool tube on the end of one case

Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it impossible for anyone to accomplish.
