Pannier Clips Source?

Hello,

I'm looking for a source to pannier clips that close fully and have an easy on off mechanism (pull one string). Ideally, less than $30 for two sets
I really like the MEC ones, but w/ shipping to the US it's 39 for two pairs. I know I can buy the Arkel system and most of the Ortlieb q2 system.

Are there any other alternatives? Or way not to pay $19 shipping from MEC?

Rixen and Kaul are a standard pattern used by many pannier makers. They are top quality and slide onto a rail which can be rivetted onto any bag (with a stiffening support)

Ortlieb USA is in the Seattle WA Area, dealers like the Touring Store
can ship spare parts. Wayne is in CO.

they screw thru the fabric and stiffener with a plastic nut inside.
so removable, repairable, I've used this to pair them with webbing strips,
so my Sport Packers become a single thing ..

of course there is the DIY alternative, always .
fabricate them from common hardware..

Thanks everyone, I'll probably go for the Arkel Cam Lock system. I was hoping to go cheaper, but it looks like I'll only be saving a few bucks by going Vaude

I need to do something like this to my grocery panniers. How would YOU do it? I'm currently using bungees to secure them but would like something more convenient/elegant.
