Appears to be custom made. Many iterations of canopy hold down/locking mechanisms were fabricated and shared amongst us builders over the years, my RV4 and HR2 included.

Here's my RV4 canopy "hold open" and security lock combination pin. Inserted into canopy frame it's a hold open, slid aft with canopy closed it's a safety catch.
