Default Hood prop for 37 Ford pickup?

Has anyone found a decent hood prop for a 37 pickup? I have made one out of wood but has to be put into place each time and is very awkward. Is there one which attaches to the hood somehow and maybe slides along the radiator support rods and is self-storing?

I had seen these before but never found a mounting diagram until now. For $30, I’ll give it a try. Thanks.

There’s a little detent on each side of the cowl that the rear edge of the hood side fits into when you lift up the side. It’s important to have the rubber corner protectors so you don’t scratch the paint if you miss the dip/detent in the cowl. I know that from experience....;-)
