Quick Release Bags

I have a 2010 Stratoliner S that I have a question about ...
Does anyone else have an issue with the quick release turn locks on their saddle bags coming loose? I have to constantly check them on my right side bag and the bottom one is almost always completely removed. I like having them because I always take my bags off when I wash the bike, but I am concerned that one of these days I am gonna lose a bag while going down the road.

Short of installing nuts & bolts, is there something else I can use? Maybe an upgrade? Is there another type of fastener someone else uses?

Thanks for the input!

I just went down and checked my 2010 Strat Deluxe everything is tight. About a year ago I had a rear flat so I know they were taken off then by the dealer.

Riding is not just what I do but who I am.

When you install them, do you feel the detent that holds them in place?
