something like this on the underside is what I use

about 4 per top should provide quite a bit of shear strength and should be easy to remove vertically

I've used them in the past and they are very hard to break (even though they're plastic) if sheared...

and they're cheap if you do break one

THANKS Audiophilenoob for the help, but I think there too weak to support the top cabinet. It's really heavy. I used constraint layer damping. Front baffle is 3 layer of 3/4 mdf, 1/8 vinly damping from acoustical solution, 1'' mdf

I think you're underestimating how much force it would take to break these with a shear

probably you would have to tip the whole cabinet over and hold it in the air side ways and just let the top fall

I don't think you plan to do that do you?
