One must open the side case and loosen the top two mounting pucks; rotate pucks to clear rack, tilt and lift case off. Takes about 20 seconds, although i have not employed the ol' kitchen timer to determine that. Will add photos asap.
My purpose here is that the cases are secure regarding mounting and from removal by anyone else; unless you have the key you cannot loosen the top pucks.
I had a couple of messenger bags that fit perfectly inside the cases. I open the case, remove the bag and close and lock the empty case.
The top case is mounted to the KTM Duals rear rack with carriage bolts and secured from the interior with wing nuts (the type once used to secure the tops of air-filter assemblies to carbuerators (only folks my age will remember those). Again, will add photos asap. I use the top case for Frogg Toggs, camping gear, etc. I added footman loops to lash down anything that won't fit inside the case.
My goal here was to have locking cases at limited expense. These are sufficient to that purpose. But i am fully aware and respectful of the fact that they are not for everyone. That said, neither is the Versys, itself.
The only inconvenience is that each case has four catches, two of which lock, that must be released to open the lid. Then again, those two extra catches contribute to the all-weather reliability. No leaks so far.
