removable stair railing

We opened the stairwell in a basement finishing project to
allow bigger items to be carried down (esp. full sheetrock panels)
by cutting the wall at a diagnonal above the stairs above the landing.
The temporary extra room was so convenient we would like the stair railing
that's now needed to be removable for future use.

Any ideas on how build a sturdy removable railing?

The base to work on is just a 2x4 nailed to the cut down 2x4s that
were in the wall down to the landing. (7steps to a narrow 30" landing
and then another 8 steps). The railing only needs to be about 4 - 5ft.

I have built a removeable railing before using a receiver set into the floor. The bannister and balusters were assembled and the ballusters seated into the receivers. It could be lifted straight out as needed. The depth of the balusters in the receiver determined the strength of the construction. It seems that you could construct such an item.
