Pelican Top Case.. How to Mount?

I have a Pelican 1500 case that I want to use as a top case. How do I go about mounting it to either a Givi or SW Motech rear luggage rack? I want to be able to disconnect it quickly/easily like a regular Givi case. I saw that Caribou sells a universal Pelican case with mount but it's $325... Anyone mounted a Pelican on a rear rack?

I've got one on mine but I just drilled the case directly to the Givi rack and bolted it on so no quick disconnect. I use it for a laptop / camera case and it works great.

When I installed the Pelican to my side racks on my KLR, I also just drilled them. I used 1/4'' bolts with rubber washers on the inside and outside to prevent water leaks, inserted the bolt from the outside of the case and put a screw on handles (or you could use a wing nut) on the inside for easy removal. I have put some caulking between the bolt and rack to hold the bolt in place when to case is removed.

To remove, just unscrew the handle, lift and it's done. Since the handle is on the inside, no chance of stealing.
