Can I field this one Dave?

I've been toying with the idea of a quick release. If you use one like the pic I posted below you should still have the piece of mind that the unit won't release on its own because the actuator is counter sunk. I have yet to mount mine but I will let you know of my encounters.

Something like this would work as well...but I would replace the cotter pin with a key chain ring.
It would be more work to take off than the style above...But less time than using tools to remove bolts.

There are a variety of styles out there.
