Sweet! thanks for the tip. Unfortunately my side panels are help on with bolts and nuts rather than the clip thingy. I should pick up some of those clips and then I'd be good to go.

Called a "thumb screw". I think Lowes carries them.

When I first the topic, I thought maybe you had thrown a rod though the side panel and took it off the "fast way".

For those of us near a Menard's store (Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, etc.), I saw them there for under a dollar.

I would think Lowes and Home Depot would carry them also. Plus most any good hardware store.
