Fitting a light for in canopy setup.

So I got my light today. It is a 30 inch t5ho 4X24 watt light. I planned on fitting some riser legs, made by the same company on it and putting the canopy over it. Unfortuantely, the legs weren't compatible. I am afraid that if I just put it on there, it may fall in. How should I go about setting up my new light. Thanks.

Typically, when you want to utilize an existing canopy, you would use a retrofit kit or buy DIY components. IMO you could either not use the canopy or take the light back and get a suitable retrofit kit.
Without seeing the light and canopy personally, I would hesitate to give advice on trying to utilize both.
