The most secure way to fit a peg is to get the fittings soldered to your horn. I wouldnt class this as a DIY job.

you could make one of these for relatively litttle effort and hardly any cost.

I made and use this http://www.myspace.com/my/photos/album/1649777

The base is from a music stand/sax stand, the top is a K & M tuba stand part and the rod in the centre is delrin.

alternatively you could try one of these http://www.normans.co.uk/p-273-km-149-5-tuba-playing-stand.aspx?CAWELAID=331489890

I know someone who made a long spike for their Jiffy stand so they could play bari while standing up but with it attached to the base of the Jiffy stand (the upper flattened end of the spike slots into the aluminium block that's clamped around the bell). They used a piece of tubing from an old microphone stand but any steel tubing with 1/2" internal diameter should fit onto a Jiffy stand base.

But Jiffy stands are expensive so look for used ones on eBay as they crop up every now and then. I've had one fitted to my bari for years so I can play without using a sling if it's a seated gig or in pit bands where it's great for doubling, but it is a fairly chunky piece of metal that is clamped onto the bell (which some people find ugly) with the lowest ring clamped on or above the joint ring above the C# tonehole.
