Right now I am using the one inch web straps with buckles. I take them off each time and throw them in a bucket and when I put the cover back on I have to put them back through the loop and adjust time to size. It's not a big deal but it is enough of a big deal that if I think it isn't going to rain I'll leave most of the straps off.
One day when I was in a hurry I left the straps in the loops. When I put the cover back on It wasn't as big a deal to just clip the buckles together.
Then I was at the boat store and saw a display for z shaped hook that held the straps on the loops but they were out of them. I'm trying to find them now with google but so far no luck.
I think what you may be looking for is taylor mades quick-on straps.
You can see them here.
My only complaint is the are plastic so don't know how much action they can take. I would advise to keep an eye on them and replace often. To bad they are not made of stainless steel coated with vinyl. It's a good idea though and I can see how they would be very helpful.
