 Details
Patented Product

Yes

No

 We are staying true to our design concepts and ideas. Although the current generation of Edge Brackets (formerly known as Ghost Brackets Generation III) is far more advanced than the original (Generation One), you can easily see the resemblance to our pattent drawings. We change with the times and will continue to give our customers the best our engineers have to offer.  In fact our latest designs are so innovative we have additional patents pending for them alone.

Original Design Concept

Yes

No

 On their website Easy Brackets claim that the Edge Brackets (formerly known as Ghost Brackets Generation III) concept was copied from them.  The truth is that Edge Brackets were on the market for nearly 5 years before Easy Brackets ever appeared and we have been perfecting the design ever since.
Tuff Leather like Powder Coating (Hard to Scratch)

Yes

No

 All of our brackets are pre-treated with specialty coating, then powder-coated with a thick, leather-like, textured, powder coating guaranteeing longer life and better looking product.
Thick 10 Guage Steel Costruction

Yes

No

Edge Brackets (formerly known as Ghost Brackets Generation III) are manufactured from 10-guage steel.  It is stronger and thicker than the 12-guage used with Easy Brackets. We purposely use thicker steel for better structural integrity so as to give our customers the best possible product.
Correct Pitch Angle of the Bracket Yes - 8° No - 5° The 8° pitch is a standard used by OEM manufacturers and is essential to keep your bags away from the swing arm.  Easy Brackets say on their website that if you mount the bags properly they will not hit the swing arm, but what they don't tell you is with a smaller pich angle in order to avoid the axle interference the bags have to sit well above the swing arm.
Fully Adjustable Bracket that gives you great flexibility to mount and adjust your bags exactly as you need then.

Yes

No

 Our design gives you more flexibility than ever to reposition the bag, as well as the bracket itself, to avoid many unwanted turn signal relocations, which are inherent to a non-adjustable system, like that of Easy Brackets.  We currently have more than 150 fitments available and are adding more at a faster rate and more precise fit than anyone else on the market today.

 Edge Brackets (formerly known as Ghost Brackets Generation III) are fully adjustable.  This means that not only can they be moved from bike to bike, but, also, the bags can be shifted from back to front on the bike, to avoid issues with turn signals, shocks and seats.  Easy Brackets use a single-unit, stationary design, so once the brackets & bags are on the bike, you cannot move or adjust them in any way.  Therefore, the only way to reposition your bag with the Easy Bracket System is to realize that there is a problem you will need to drill more holes in your saddlebags. We give you more flexibility to mount and move your product as you see fit.

Drop Down Design for Quick Attach or Detach

Yes

No

 We use slots to allow you to drop the bracket onto the keepers.  With our brackets you just line up the sliders with the keepers and then gravity does the rest.
Specialty made flat key double-sided lock

Yes

No

 We use only our specially designed and manufactured double-sided flat key locks.  The reason for this is that they can withstand weather, abuse and those pesky thieves. Based on our research, this lock is safer than a simple barrel lock.  As an example, folowing is a website which shows how the barrel lock can be picked/unlocked with a simple plastic pen.

Stainless steel, hand polished button head bolts

Yes

No

 We beleive your bike should look as clean as possible when the bags are taken off.  That is why we use low profile, button-head, stainless steel bolts that are polished to show their brilliant finish.
Stainless steel, CNC machined, hand polished keepers

Yes

No

 We truly believe that nothing can replace the steady hand of a polisher. That is why all of our hardware and our keepers have a beautiful chrome-like finished look.
Large World Wide Distributors

Yes

No

 We have World-Wide Distributors available to our customers and our dealers.  Therefore, you will get better support, better pricing, and better delivery anywhere in the world.
