System Case Lids

Hello All,

I was looking for alternatives for attaching the system case lids. I had to replace one of mine do to mishaps and now find myself wondering about a better alternative than the pop rivets. I remember reading long ago about there being after market hinges that can be had. I do remember them being in two categories. One for around $30 or $40 and the other for $100.00 or so. If any one can shed some light on this I would be very appreciative.

thank you

I looked for the quick-switch hinges so I could swap between city lids and the standard lids, but could only find the $100 version. I went to the hardware store and picked up stainless steel bolts and washers, and nylock nuts. For the $92 difference, I figured I could undo and redo the bolts a couple times a year.

I used the Kugler Klamps on my KRS to switch between 3 system case lids. they worked very well.

for $32.00, it was better then fiddling around with a lot of nuts and loosing them all the time.
