Ortlieb Panniers with Thule Pack'n'Pedal Rack

I've searched the internet high and low for the answer to this and can't find much so I'm asking you all.

I have a Thule Pack'n'Pedal rack on the rear of my bike, with the side frames that are supposed to make the rack compatible with "almost any pannier." Being fairly new to panniers, I can't for the life of me figure out how to attach Ortlieb panniers to this rack. The lower anchoring hook doesn't have enough clearance to clip around the side frames of the rack (the top clips connect fine to the rack rails). Has anyone had success with this before, or do folks that attach Ortlieb panniers to the Pack'n'Pedal just not use any kind of bottom anchoring?

So what is the tube diameter? I don't own , would not buy that rack you did.

I have just let the bottom dangle, on the unique front rack on my Bike Friday season Tikit I use in town.

there are alternate parts Ortlieb offers for the lower part of their bags, and a bolt and plastic nut pack to make something yourself.

ask your retail shop.
