Could prop it against the wall, or perhaps find a Bungy cord slightly smaller than diameter.

Are you lifting it out of the chest freezer to bottle or keg? I've wanted to do this but worried I will hurt my back lifting it in and out.

I am lifting it out and there is certainly a possibility of hurting your back doing it. I've been planning on removing the handles and using a pulley to lift it out but haven't fully designed how that system will be set up yet.

If anyone has any suggestions on pulleys fit for the task I'd appreciate it.

I am using one of these
http://www.midwestsupplies.com/16-5-gallon-plastic-fermentor.html

with the lid and sealing ring it absolutely holds pressure. I haven't tried pressurized transfers but great idea to save the back.
