Hi, bud.

It'll fit. The legs that go into the end don't have to go in the same amount. So as the back of the trigon is a 90 degree corner, you can get each of the legs to be at 45 degrees by having the rear legs in further than the front legs, angling the 'feet' at 45 degrees. You'll need some self adhesive velcro to stop it being pushed back (if feet are on the outside of the pelmet) or forward (if feet are on the inside of the pelmet) and dropping down.

That's if hanging it with a hanging kit isn't possible.

Nope unfortunately. I sold them ages ago. Levi can't put it up using that anyway, parents won't let him.

There might be a cheaper way if you could somehow fit a couple of acrylic rods across so that the Maxspect Razor feet sit straight onto them and then fix the acrylic to the top of the canopy/hood

There's no need, just put the rear legs in further than the front?

The mounting base on the legs on a maxspect will twist as Mike says so easily mounted :)

They have had the upgrade done as the early ones had a common issue but that has been taken care of.

They will see £250 all day long each on ebay or gumtree

Yes that is a bargain I should imagine the lenses where changed in the upgrade they last for years Mike will confirm but the time they give for them to last is hours flat out and most only run flat out for 4 hours a day if that.
