Hard top case question

I just installed the OEM black aluminum top case on my 2015 DL650. There are 2 plastic posts inside: one on the lid, the other near the top lip. They are obviously for a lid keeper cord of some sort, but nothing like that came with the case. Am I missing this small cord or does the case not come with one?

Thanks.

You are not missing anything. They are sold separately. Here is a link:

Thanks for the link. Judging by the description - and the reviews - they don't seem necessary.

I made something similar for my Seahorse bag lids out of stainless fishing leader. You can buy very thin wire rope at Home Despot and crimp electrical connectors on the ends to hold the line fast.
I used rivets to hold them in place. Yep, had to drill holes for that.
