Happy Trail Teton cases lock to racks?

I am considering the purchase of the Happy Trail Teton cases and racks for my 2012 Versys. I can't seem to find any information on if the cases somehow lock to the racks to prevent being stolen?

Any info / clarification from others who have the Happy Trails set up is much appreciated.

On the set I have they do not lock to the bike. I use locks on the outside of the case to keep people out of them. If you can get the box open though they would be very easy to steal.

You could easily swap out the bolt/knob they provide with something less common to slow somebody down. The way they sit now all you need is your hands to remove them from the bike.

Teton cases

Replace the large knob bolts with a standard bolt needing a wrench, get the bolt long enough to put a self locking nut on the end. Can be stolen but would take wrenches and some time and they'd still have to break into the case if you have it locked. Would probably be easier to steal the framework and everything or just get three guys or so and steal the bike LOL

Thanks for the information. Could someone post a pic of a case mounted to the rack from both the outside and inside of the case?
