Question How to add pole/bar long handle to hand sand scoop?

I have a hand sand-scoop, but I'd like to have the versatility of attaching a long handle so I can kick it in to the sand and not have to kneel down as much. Anyone seen a way to do this? I'd think it's relatively simple, just can't wrap my mind around how to firmly attach it...

Thanks!

what hand scoop do you have? Some of the ones I've seen are too flimsy to use as a long handled scoop

But check this out.

Mine looks somewhat similar to that in the video, but it has a flimsier back I think. Metal Conduit for the pole/handle, a few U-Bolts, and a hand grip, seems pretty straight forward!
Thanks for sharing that.
