    Hey Jackye, The trike pictured is not mine. But it has the same type of windshield set up. I was looking for an advanced way too quickly attach and detach the windshield. Somebody gave me the idea of Dzus fasteners. It actually looks like Dzus fastener might work well in this instance. When I tipped my trike over the windshield actually split in two. But all I needed to do was put both pieces together and trace out the new windshield. Check out this link for a great explanation and demonstration of how a Dzus fasteners works.

    On the DeereFly windscreen attachment, my approach was a bit more uh domestic?.
    I used Stainless T nuts, large shoulder screws, and rubber toilet seat washers, all available at the aircraft section of the Home Depot! Epoxied the T-Nuts in place, once all the holes were drilled in the appropriate locations. Sorry no pix of the process.
