Any Ideas On Quick Release Front Fender

Guys & Gals, I'm looking for a quick release front fender for my Swift. Any ideas? Currently I have a standard plastic fender with the struts to the fork.

I was thinking of getting rid of the struts and replacing the standard nut on the main bolt with a butterfly nut. Do you think this will work considering how small the fenders for 20" bikes are? I.e. maybe the plastic fender will be stiff enough?

I was also thinking of quick release MTB fenders, but I worry they will interfere with my toes when turning.

Eager to hear your opinions.
