Info on Ortlieb pannier mountig clips, please.

Thanks for looking. I'm thinking about those nice Ortlieb Classic roll-top panniers. Can anyone say whether they have adjustable mounting clips. I mean, do those spring loaded hooks slide forward and back to accomodate different types of racks?

They do! the whole bar on the top where the clips mount is a track for them to slide back and forth, and the bar that the hook at the bottom is attached to allows the same adjustment.

The diameter of the clip is also adjustable, via removable inserts to take up the slack and reduce shake, wobble and woll.
