Axiom pannier owners and Tubus Tara racks?

How do you like to attach the lower hook on your Axiom panniers to the Tubus Tara rack at the bottom since the standard hook is too small to embrace that large diameter tubing? As always, thank you for your input.

The link is an similar to an item I got at Ace hardware where I work. It's a single hole 3/8 pipe strap I think. The one i got is coated in a black rubber though so it won't rattle and it doesn't slide off. I then wrapped the top in Gorilla brand duck tape that I had and cut a whole through it.

Can't you simply bend the hook to a slightly larger diameter?

If it's Al, be careful bending it.

Seek, may try that but it will definitely have to be spread quite a bit.

Found these on Tubus site, anyone tried these? similar to invisibleink above:
