I installed an eyebolt in the manufacturing hole in the center of the crash arch and put a large key ring n it. Then I made a 1/8" lanyard cable with a caribiener at each end. When the wind is blowing I put the lanyard in place between the canopy latch handle and the key ring, and it stops the canopy about 1/2" short of full travel to take the stress off the air spring struts.

I also use a piece of aluminum tubing on the left air spring leg to keep the canopy from slamming down in a wind.
