New member with a diy 30gal long stand

Hi guys I am new here I have been getting advice and reading a lot on here lately. I got all my equipment used from preuss pets in Lansing. I really wanted a nice stand but didn't find most the stands I was looking at to be very strong in my opinion, and the ones I did find that I liked were extremely expensive. From this point I had watched many videos and read many post on building your own stand so I went and grabbed some 2x4s and paneling and a few odds and ends and got to work. In the end I painted xthe stand to get it the color I wanted. Only thing I am trying to figure out now is a way to get the canopy to stay open on its own. Please let me know what you think. Or any advice.
