Got it figured out.

The engineer suggested maybe as I’m putting the feet in the straps to pull out the bar and tuck it behind my calves. I tried that and it worked but it felt very awkward. But while putting the bar back, I made a really simple but important discovery. The hooks for the bar have a bottom that’s just high enough so the bar will actually stay in place underneath the hooks. It’s only about a centimetre closer to me, but that’s really all I need. So I can reach it now if I put the bar there, which is fairly simple to do. See the photos below.
I had a good day doing my regular gym session and figuring this out but never did get a chance to just ‘play with my new toy’ because I had to go get groceries after work today. Ahh well. There’s always tomorrow!
My bar fits just under these brackets. (Usually, it would go where the hooks are for it).
And here’s the same spot with the bar sitting where I can reach it. So pleased to have found this by accident!
