Default How do you keep the bag off the dip tube

Done several AG biab batches, had a problem on the last 2. The bag got snagged under the dip tube on my boilermaker. The first time I forced it up and tore it. The second time I got wiser, recognized the problem and was able to tease it out with a spoon. What do you brewers do to keep the bag out from under that little tiny space between the tube and the bottom of the pot?

Most people buy a SS cake rack or a SS steamer rack as a "shelf" to keep the bag above the hardware. They have these kinda guys at WalMart/Target for about $6-10:
