At this point, depending on the vehicle, your hood may raise and support itself automatically.

If not, use one hand to hold the hood open temporarily while securing the hood with the prop rod:

Lift one end of the prop rod up or out to release it from the front area of the engine bay.

Swing the end of the prop rod up and slide it into the cutout on the underside of the hood.

Make sure the hood is well secured before you let go with your other hand, or it may fall and injure you.
