Default Attaching Struts on a WM Cub 48

I just built a WM Cub 48, what a great plane. One issue, however. The struts attach to the fuselage with bolts. No big deal, but I can see how this would be a pain as I take this plane to and from the flying field again and again, lost bolts, nuts falling off in the grass, etc..

Is there some sort of quick connector available to make removing and attaching the wing a much faster process?

Thanks.

You can use Dubro Ball links to snap the struts in place. Since they are not functional anyway. I would mount the metal ball end the the fuse and wing and the nylon cup portion to the strut.

Thanks. I'll give that a try.
