Quick Release Tower Mirror Arm

I have a 2003 prostar 209 that has a non quick release tower mirror arm on it. Im tired off removing the arm everytime I want to lower the tower. I noticed that the new mirror arms have a quick release on it. Does mastercraft have them for the 2003 style tower and if so how much and where can I get one.

Thanks

notice you have a 209 also..........I have an Aerial mirror arm from H20 Sportswarehouse.........I can't for the life of me get the damn thing to stay put on the tower. It keeps rotating downwards.........and today, I stripped the head of the screw tightening it.......I've tried other inserts to no avail. do you have any insight on what you did? Thinking about having it tig welded to the tower. Thoughts? Thanks in advance!

I took my stock tower arm setup and did the following:

1. Added springs to the four allen screws so that the pressure pushes the two halfs apart.
2. Screwed the two halfs together over the tower, but so it was fairly loose.
3. Added a fifth screw in the center of the lower half to function as a set screw.

If I remember, I'll get a picture of the setup tonight and post it up. Its worked perfectly for me.
