You are correct.
I have Easy Brackets on my America and when installed per their instructions they can damage your cargo. They come with long alen head black bolts that can rust. I went to the hardware store and bought shorter stainless steel alen button head bolts (mark your old black ones to get the correct length) and stainless low profile lock nuts. Install them the opposite way with the smooth round alen head inside the bag and the nuts on the bracket side. Yes the nuts will fit in side the Easy Bracket box and not contact the lock it does require extra work though, just drop in a crowsfoot to hold the nut while you tighten the bolts.
