Portable delta loop feedpoint/insulator & balun. Balun is in the pink container. Coax will attach where red & green wires are on front bottom, and feed through the balun which is plugged in on the backside, and then to the antenna wire (green) which is fed through some of the mounting holes on the sides for strain relief.
The arrangement should provide flexibility to allow other wire antenna types and baluns (2:1, 4:1, etc.) to be used. The other mounting holes will be used for support cord. Apex of the delta loop and other corner will be set/hung by large clothing buttons.
Perhaps an expensive approach if you had to purchase the binding-post wall plate, but I was given a bagful by a fellow ham, so the price (for me) was right.

My new portable 6m Moxon. Assembled in the basement Saturday morning and tested on the deck prior to the June VHF contest.
Aside from the coax, mast and hub, entire antenna collapses down into about 2” x 48”. Hub is about 12” x 5” x 1/2”.
