Mounting rear carrriers

For those of you who have mounted hard cases such as Pelican boxes as rear carriers, how did you go about doing this and is there a mounting kit that allows the carrier to be removed, but also locked on to the bike?

Nice pannier racks, but I already have panniers, I'm looking to mount a rear trunk.

I used this trunk. Low cost and works great:

Quick question.., has anyone tried using a car dash cam on their bike? I was given (for free ) a Cobra dash cam and thought about just setting it up on the bike. It records and saves every ten minutes, then loops when the card is full. Nice thing is that you can save and lock the video at anytime. I know it's not water proof but duh.., don't use it in the rain. Anyone???

Sender1,

I use my phone. The video shakes a lot but I figure they can still watch it at my funeral. It's better than just sitting there.
