I need to install/remove the hitch often because I'm looking for an easy way to go grocery shopping once a week, but carry too much stuff to make it into the front (10kg max).

At this point, it looks like there's just no shopping cart whose hitch can be installed/removed quickly, unlike the Topeak Beamrack:
How about two standard seat-post QR clamps for the two bolts on your clamp? If they need any modification, it should be easy to do. The only drawback: you must completely remove one QR to remove the clamp from the seat post, but at least no tools are needed. The Topeak product is a more elegant solution.
