Hanging Carl's 145" DIY Outdoor Screen

Hi everyone, looking for ideas on how to hang my Carl's 145" DIY Outdoor Screen. I plan on installing posts in the ground to hang it from but looking for suggestions on how to fasten the EMT frame to the posts. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks

I had considered something like that. I should have mentioned I wanted to do something that would allow me to quickly put the screen up and take it down easily. I don't plan on leaving it up permanently. Was hoping someone on here has had experience with that.

No such animal exists as far as I know.

I used a Carl's screen with a 16:9 aspect in a 165" and 200" size with EMT frame. It's a really great screen except for setup take down. I ended up downsizing to a 144" VisualApex screen for ease of set up and tear down. Takes less than 10 minuets to setup by myself and even less to take down.

Considering going with these.

Pretty sure I found what I want to use but I can't post a link or pic of it as I don't have enough posts.
