Loose bag eyelet on a Brooks saddle

Hi all,

I have a B67S saddle with 1000 miles on it which recently it started to squeak. The noise seems to come from the rear of the saddle but I am not 100% sure. I also noticed that one of the bag eyelets is loose and I can easily move it right/left.


Is it normal to have a loose bag eyelet? Will it get looser over time?

Is there a way to tighten it (could not figure how to access the nut with a tool)?

Can the loose screw be the cause of the squeak?

They're screwed on .. ? maybe your bike shop's people have different tools than you.

B17 they're part of the rear frame. ..

+ you can always strap your bag to one of the spring coils

the bolts that hold the springs on and the seat together,
warrant seeing that they don't get loose.

AFAIK most of the sprung models have the bagloop bolted on between the cantle plate and the spring. The head of the bolt is inaccessible as it is between the cantle plate and the leather top. The nut is inside the spring so it's hard to get a wrench on it.
