If the weather has been humid the paint will take longer to fully harden. Did the clamp did have some rubber padding on it ?

comment wedge/saddle rail mounted bags interchange
The issue is that the bags that are secure enough for mountain biking use multiple straps and can be a pain to install and remove. The easy install type have a tendency to fall off.

comment Can't remove crank arm on older Mercier
You will most likely destroy the cotter getting it out. Bring the cotter or pin to your local bike shop. They come in several sizes and matching it is easier if you have the old one.
