You can also use a PVC pipe cap of 1 1/2" or 2" diameter, drill a 1/4" hole in the center and epoxy it to the shaft with 5-minute epoxy (or hot-melt ferrule cement), drill three hole in the side of it and put thumb-screw bolts in them with a nut on both sides of the PVC cap so that they can be adjusted to grip the rod. Don't forget to did the ends of the bolts in liquid vinyl to keep them from marring the rod.

Cheap and easy solution for all but heavy duty grip forming.
