Carlson base modifications?

I am getting pretty tired of my 4" Carlson pump falling over every time I let go of it. I was wondering if any of you have made modifications to it like adding a some sort of plate on the bottom to make it more stable? Any ideas? Pics would be great.

I have used a pump with a piece of plywood screwed onto the bottom. Seams like a real easy mod. You could even paint it white or blue to match the pump.

I tried several stand up style pumps and hated every one of them. I converted to a K-pump and never looked back.
