why don't you run a stainless wire around the pot just under the lip of the pot and attach a bail on that way?

I saw that and its an option. I dont know how to get it tight enough not to worry about it slipping off but ill experiment with it. might use a fishing leader wire. making tabs to attach to the sides of the pot would be better i guess.

If you made a loop on each side you could put a nail in them and twist them tight. that would then give you a spot to attach the bail.

Aren't there hose clamps about that size?

Yes ! and that might work. Thanks for the idea.

Run stainless steel wire around the pot under the lip. Form two loops at opposite sides. One loop will be where you join the wire together. Put a nail in both loops and twist to tighten. Remove nails and insert bail handle.

I can picture that now. Thank you. Ill work on it. I like the idea of something running around the pot just under the lip that is, in someway, removeable. Light weight & stores small in my kit so i have the opt to use or not
thats why i was thinking about the fishing leader wire i saw a video of it,
leader with loop at each end run around the pot, pass one end through loop of other end, pull tight . run over pot to make handle, pass other end loop through butterfly handle and connect back to itself with a small hook of some sort, "s" hook type. It would be removeable and will work as long as there is pressure on it to keep it tight. The problem is where the end passes through the loop. There is no way to keep it tight enough to stay when it is not hanging with weight on it. ( sorry to ramble on )
Thank you all for your ideas.

what about an adjustable loop done in stainless wire or thin cable similar to what I used to use for the ASS chairs I think that should hold well for this application - here is a description and pic

basically the idea is to take a length of line, double it over, form a larkshead knot where it was doubled and then feed the two "tails" into the larkshead and tighten the larkshead onto the two lines feed through it thus producing what is basically a running larkshead.

note before doing the larkshead put a couple attachment points (separate loops of wire or some washers) on the doubled line and adjust position of the attachment points before final tightening of the adjustable loop

to tighten the loop around the pot position the loop on the pot with the attachment points where desired then spread the two tail lines apart and pull apart _hard_ then use a half knot or a double half knot pulled up to the larkshead to lock the loop and keep it from slipping

I'll try with some other pics shown here in three different ways using dynaglide instead of wire (did not have flexible wire) hopefully one of the three ways will work with your phone:

I was casually interested in what it would take to attach a bail to a pot like the Snowpeak one so using some 18 gauge steel wire (solid not braided) I made up a bail handle and then using a second piece of wire I fed it through the loops of the handle, wrapped it around the pot and twisted the ends together using a pair of pliers and cut off the excess - this is the same basic idea that sheepdog suggested. IMO this worked well if its OK to leave the bail handle attached. The same approach should also work using the small washers to allow for a removable handle.

here are a couple pics :

note the lip of the pot keeps the wire from slipping off the top of the pot and the bracket where the handles of the pot would have attached keeps the wire from slipping off the bottom of the pot
