I recently bought a used Victory brand lock and ride passenger backrest and luggage rack (3 hole type) from a member here. I got a great deal and the items are flawless. The hardware kit that came with the backrest contains four plastic split mounting rings. Two of them are shown in the picture below. These clearly are intended to go on the four mounting posts but why are they necessary? All four of the mounting posts already have some sort of gray plastic cover over the underlying metal post so why are these split rings necessary?
