Default B44 quick-release undertray ideas...

I was wondering if anyone has had some creative ideas they would like to share regarding attaching and removing the B44 undertray easily. I know it's not too often you would need to get underneath other than to remove a servo or replace a broken bulkhead etc.

You can use velcro or double-sided tape but I am looking for a method that attaches nice and flush to the lower chassis and is easy to remove very much like the HB D4 under tray. Right now the B44 undertray attaches using the two front screws, the two velcro posts, and one little rear screw on the mini-bumper.

One idea I can think of right now is to secure the two front nuts securely using some strong adhesive, CA, or Shoe Goo, so removing the front part of the undertray would only require you to remove two front hex screws instead of using one hand to hold down the side with the nut and using your other hand to turn the hex driver.

Another idea I thought of for the front part is to remove the nuts all-together and use those plastic quick release clips you find in your car trunk to remove the carpet lining or in your computer to secure some parts.

Any other tips or ideas?

What if you trimmed the front so that only one screw would go threw the under tray . So you would only have to take out one screw out in the back and one in the front. I will save you about 15 seconds of screwing

Haven’t tried it but…

Cut the front and rear corners off a tray and servo tape them to the top of the deck and put Velcro on the sides to hold the tray in place, might work but possibly a little messy. You would still probably have to use the rear screw.
