portable display case attachment

Hello All,
I am trying to make a portable wooden display case.
I am attaching a rough design plan image.
The display case will be about 6.5 feet tall, divided into 3 and 3.5 feet sections. It is made of 2X4's
The two sides fold in for easy storage and mobility.
What is the best way to connect the two parts together?
I am looking for something that is quick to install/uninstall and would make the two parts fairly sturdy.

Any ideas?

I would use bolts. Easy and fast and as secure as you can get.

Hinge...Hinge two backs together. Fold back to back. swing sides in and your package ready to go. When setting up secure sides with fastener of choice..Could be dead bolts or a couple of hinges with removable pins.
