how can i securely fit car stereo with universal cage??

hi

have just bought a alpine stereo but didnt come with the cage, so i doubt i will find a cage that will be right for it, so if i buy a universal one how would i fit it secure? normally you would fit the cage, push some of the pegs out, makes it really secure and then the stereo slots in and clips, but with a universal stereo it wont secure in the cage, so i would have to secure it with pegs with the cage out, but then i couldnt fit it securely in the car cos i wouldnt be able to push the pegs out and secure it, how can i do it? any ideas?
