NEW!! SafariSack 7.3...our largest bean bag for photographers. In stock now.
The standard width uses a “half pipe” design, whereas the short width is only “third pipe” to allow more clearance on some saddles rails.

INSTALLATION STEP 1: With the plate sitting in the curve of the rails, adjust the head of the outside bolts so they are snug against the inside of the rails.
INSTALLATION STEP 2: The plate should be in the center of the curve or slightly above it.
INSTALLATION STEP 3: Attach the rear plate to the frame and center the frame on the rails.
INSTALLATION STEP 4: Although this aluminum is aircraft-grade, it will flex. Because it is softer than hardened steel, it will stick to the rails of your saddle without reefing on the bolts. It only needs to hold the weight of your bag, NOT your body!

This is a dated photo: current versions feature a half-pipe, not a third-pipe, for additional strength.

eoGEAR Wide Rail Adapter (for Brooks, Rivet or similar leather saddles)

Overview

  • This adapter is for attaching any eoGEAR RandoBag which is using an L-bracket, to certain leather saddles which typically have wider rails in the rear.
  • It is also used for attaching the Minoura Double Water Bottle (SBH-300) bracket to these saddles.
  • Has two adjustable spacer screws that you can adjust to the rail width for a snug fit.
  • This part replaces the steel back plate provided with the Minoura bracket, which is the backbone for the eoGEAR RandoBags (but not used for eoGEAR “SeatBags”) or those that use the Dual Tab System (DTS).
  • Fit most, but not all saddles. See this page for details (scroll down to “eoGEAR Alloy Bracket...” heading).

User Tip

Be sure you adjust the outer pair of nuts and bolts so they are tight against the inner sides of your saddle rails. This will keep the attachment frame from sliding to the left or right and rotating out, causing a total loss of your bag.
