Hello All!

I'm working on accessories for a kaiju game, and I am looking for a piece that would go at the top of a flight stand's rod that would hold a loose figure in place.

My plan is to use the flight stands interchangeably when figures are in flight by placing them at the top, on this "cradle" piece.

The acrylic rod is 5mm in diameter and the figures are plastic and are about 6 inches long, for context.

If you scroll down to the third image on this page (Rodan), this is the kind of thing I am thinking of.

Thank you in advance!

Instead of a cradle, why not use two small magnets. They are used for aircraft.

Rare-earth magnets, specifically, because they are very strong for their size and weight.

Unfortunately, magnets are not an option, as the cradles will be used to hold kaiju, whom will only be flying some of the time (hence the cradle on the flight stand). I do not wish to look at magnets glued to the bodies of the monsters as they ravage the urban landscape.
