    Hi Curt......actually it`s pretty easy........I hold the rod in one hand.......I apply a tad of super glue with a toothpick  about 1/4 of an inch of underneat the rod......then attach it to the body with a clean toothpick.....I let it dry for a few secounds and inch may around the body with the same procedure.......thanks buddy
