Panniers wires

Does anyone know what these wires are for on these VAUDE panniers I have?
The only thing I can think of, is to lock them together on a rack.
Is that right, or is it something else?

Not sure, but my panniers are locked to my rack
I would suggest they are a deterrent to theft.
me too - though I have never seen such things as a deterrent (the normally wise Ortlieb do an add-on which I think you could probably overcome with scissors) and would never leave panniers on an unaccompanied bike.
