Force-12 recommends putting a pop-rivet in, but NOT popping it.  Just put it in 
hold it in place with a turn of black electrical tape.  When it comes time to 
disassemble it, it goes really quickly!

The element to boom connection depends on what your antenna is.  I'm guessing 
a set of minimally tightened U-bolts would be most common.
