Ortlieb QL2.1 hook inserts give a used bag new life

I bought a $200+ Ortlieb pannier at a huge discount ($50) from a friend who didn’t need it anymore. I tried to mount it on my Felt 2014 Sport-e eBike but the bike’s rear rack rails (rods) were larger diameter than the hook opening. This led to a quick education on Orthlieb’s evolving mounting systems, learning that this bag has QL2.1 hooks, and learning that there are 3 sizes of inserts (8, 10 & 12 mm) to adapt to a variety of rack rail diameters. I researched sources, liked BikeShopHub’s listing, and ordered a set of 6 (3 sizes, a pair of each) which was delivered promptly and without a hitch. Perhaps Orthlieb made design changes even within the QL2.1 series product line (?), but I had to modify the inserts using a box-cutter knife to make them work. I carefully removed 2 small tabs on one side of each insert and narrowed the tab on the other sides. The modified inserts work great, remaining captured inside the hook shape without dropping out. My bike now has an almost-new weatherproof bag for recreation trips and shopping — in a matching color, no less :)
