I like the Maravia knuckles.
Aire used a similar knuckle on their older Tribs, but it was nowhere as smooth/easy to attach as Maravia's. I also ripped one off with a handline/strap around the tube. The Trib fabric just isn't made for that kind of shear force.
The NRS ones are decent. RMR used similar batten attachments, but I've ripped one of those off as well.

That's a GREAT idea!
A big part of what makes the existing Aire system "not quick" is having to thread the straps through the floor lacing down in the well. It's a 2-person job and best done with the boat on its side..but still time-intensive.
