The Router Workshop approach is to use C-clamps to hold the fence in place. The one disadvantage to this approach is the limit to the height of the fence. Bob and Rick use high density polyethylene, but even they state that any absolutely straight piced of wood such as a 2 x 4 could be used. The ends however need to be reduced height so the C clamps can be used.
There are of course all manner of expensive (some more expensive than a router itself!) with microadjusting features, etc. I do not think although I have no first hand knowledge, that they require any pins, etc, in the table top.

"Teach your children what we have taught ours, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."

- Wood working, especially router work is too much fun to let "disabilities" get in the way.
