Is there a way to attach them with thumbscrews for easy removal/refitting?

My engines do not have belt guards and I wish they did. Yanmar does not make a belt guard for my motor model.
I tried to mold one with fiberglass and mounting tabs - the engine vibrated too much.
I have a design for an expanded metal fence for across the front of the engine. It can be lifted out of the way when needed. I hope to have this fabricated this winter.
