Sorry! Just trying to help...

If you have standard 14" cubes and the 10" dome, you can put the CHE on one of the 4 "lid" pieces and have space left over to avoid the plastic piece in the middle. I have no experience with hanging a CHE, I just wanted to let you know that setting it on top of the cage is an option if your cubes & dome are the commonly used ones.

CHE's get extremely hot and are a fire hazard unless they are properly secured so there is no way it can fall onto something combustible. The safest option is to wire the fixture directly to the top of the cage so it cannot slide off. The clamp that it comes with is questionable as to it's security and I would not trust using the clamp alone. If the emitter cannot sit directly on top of the cage, it needs to be solidly secured to something non combustible that can't fall, or be tipped over.

If you do get a stand, make sure its impossible to tip over, if it falls over and the CHE ends up against anything flammable it will start a fire.

I will zip tie the stand to the side of the cage to make sure it won't tip over. I had one when I had a chameleon and it seemed pretty sturdy if you had the bottom part under the cage. I just have the CHE on the cage now to test the temp but I am wowrried it would be knocked over or something just sitting on the top. I don't have any kind of drill or anything to make holes in it to zip tie it on the cage. Does Petsmart have the stands in store? I would have to get one when we pick him up on Saturday.
