My question is, do you think I could trim the metal lip on the bracket that turns vertical and give the seat more room to set lower and possibly latch?

So it has nothing to do with the 50L. I'll take a picture of my Corbin tonight and compare it to yours. From my experience, Corbin's quality control and customer service is pretty bad.

smiles bike=miles
smiles miles=bike.
It's simple math.

I think it has to do with the way that the 50L bracket attaches which I believe is different than the normal rack.

Could you take a picture of the the area under the seat as well? Might be able to see if there is actually a difference in the way the rack mounts

Sorry, I forgot last night. I'll be in the garage working on bikes so I'll make another run at it. Have you called Corbin and asked them why the 50L might not work?

I have had to "adjust" Corbins in the past... their pans can have a bit of variation.
If you mean the rear bracket that goes across.... how about unrivet and put a washer under it, re-rivet?? Would let it go back further.... if that's the issue....
