Default Canopy Hold Down Hooks

So all the scale artfs I own have the canopy hold down hooks poked through a slot in the canopy base and a wad of epoxy/micro balloons slobbered on the tag where it comes through to hold it in place.

How do you guys deal with this especially when fitting a cockpit which needs to rest inside the canopy flange? If someone made a hook out of T section material the top of the T could lie inside the flange and be held down with a small amount of Hysol and then the cockpit flange could be cut round this.

Any pointers?
