*EDIT* If you are trying to pound a gray rod in with this method, use a black rod to push the gray rod in its slots.

    I was already doing a variation of this (as in always using a carbon rod on top instead of a red/etc one unless I absolutely needed to use a smaller one), but this should be really helpful for those who need it.

    Usually I just stare at it. Or I just push it in and struggle like a fish playing chess.
