We made 4"x4" cubes out of egg crate and attached them to the background. That way the tension rods work. They also work as little second levels too.

If you check out the pictures we uploaded of our 65 you can see what I'm talking about. We just covered them with crab mesh!

Aaahhh. Ok. In the meantime I found cupboard tension rods that will fit. Only problem is they're metal.
