Insert tank into stand, then lightly tighten the bolts around it to secure.
+1 good idea!
This sounds like your best option if you don't have the means of building something custom. The only problem I see is the base of it may be pretty wide and take up a lot of room.
Going back to the custom stand idea: As for the fear of how wide the base of the stand should be, I have a 15 lb tank in my kegerator with nothing supporting it but its own base. The bottom of the tank is a combination of round and flat, where it's mostly round, but the center of it is only around 4-5 inches in diameter. Even with the small flat base and a giant regulator/lines hanging off it, the tank still stays up fine on it's own. So I would imagine that a box (lets say as a random number, your tank is 8 inches in diameter) that a box made of 3/4 in. thick lumber about 1 foot high, with inside dimensions of 8 in x 8 in should be fine to support it.
