It's quite a simple process.
All you have to do is form the rod into the perfect circular shape to fit your hand into, take your hook and hook it into the rod and tighten it with anything even a paper clip and put your arm in and pull.
Step 6: Discussion of Efficiancy
I believe that my prototype works and that it can work effectively. However, there are certain things that can be improved on such as comfort and stability. Therefore my next steps would be to improve on my prototype as much as possible to make it the best it can be within my access.
