To attach cut out a little hole that would fit your rod. Stick the rod on an angle into the whole until it hits the bottom of the container. Then on the bottom take a screw and stick it through the container into the hollow handle for it to not slide at the bottom of the container. You can use a rod that is your height or to your liking. To tighten the rod onto the container use a string fastener and fasten the rod onto the container through two smaller holes so the fastener can rap around the rod.
