To keep these rods out of the way without moving them to another location, I use a trigger snap and some bungee cord looped around the forward end of the chair arm. To make the rig, form a loop in the bungee using a stainless-steel hog-nose ring. Loop the bungee around the chair arm and then pull the rod to the upright position. Adjust and cut the bungee to fit, then attach the snap with another hog-nose ring. After we hook up, the crew simply pushes the rod upright and snaps it in place. A quick opening of the snap puts the rod right back in place after the release. The bungee and snap hang harmlessly out of the way on the chair arm while not in use.
