Decker hooks (sometimes called Alforjas hooks). Simply loop these solid brass pannier hooks to your pannier hanger straps to make it easier to load any pannier on your pack saddle.
Just lift and hook your pannier to your pack saddle hoops. No more holding heavy panniers in awkward positions while trying to buckle them through the hoops.
*Note: when looping Decker Hooks to your pannier, be sure that the hooks are facing left so that the bend in the hook lays flat on the pack saddle.
