Wing Rider Supports vs Trunk Bag

I Have a Kury Rack mounted above my spoiler on my beer-box. I have the carpeted liner (if that makes a speck of difference) and use the Honda Premium Trunk Bag.

When that bag is in a "fuller" state, it can be cumbersome to extricate it from the trunk at the end of the day. I bought a Wing Rider Support in order to address two concerns...weight of the rack, spoiler and cargo on the lid as well as to quiet the common "rattle" issue. I will isolate the two-part hinges as well.

My question to those that may know...does the Wing Rider bracketed support make it far worse to get that bag out?

I have it and don't even know it's there. Don't think it will be a problem.

The bag when very full is a very tight fit with or without the Wing Rider bracket. I don't feel that the brackets are big enough to cause any real problem. I find that you can't just pull the bag straight out. You need to pull the rear most corners up first and bring the back out at an angle.

I have the wingrider brackets as well. But as previously posted, when full the bag was a tight fit even without the brackets. I don't see much difference with the bracket system, and you take some of the worry out of carrying an additional bag on the trunk rack.
