removable suitcase top?!

So I've decided to make myself a homemade pedal board out of a suitcase that I found at the local thrift store.

It's a hard plastic case. I'm just wondering, if there is some way for me to modify the hinges for the top of the case, such that I would be able to easily remove it when playing?

Someone here must have done this before!


Cheers!

Pull them off and replace them with a set of latches?

I would grind out part of the hinge barrel on the lid, as per drawing below. That way it'll stay on when the lid's closed but can be pulled away once it's open.
