Because of the inherent wind advantages of a dome (streamlined) I think your trigger type of clamp may work. I'd probably go with a screw down type though.

I have a SKyShed POD XL3 that has wind brackets built in. We had a "Derecho" this past summer. Tore down power lines, trees, ripped roofs off, etc. The POD didn't even budge.

Any way you can post a picture? Might spart an idea or two.
Yes it is a DIY design,,, the ribs however extend the full width of the base ring so will interfere with any sort of C-shaped restraint I can think of!...

If you have room or you could build a mount to screw this to, then bolt the hoop end to the ribs, or even just install the bolt side and put it in lock when you're done with your session. 4-6 would do the trick, and no cutting anything
