It's hard to tell for sure how these items are sized but we do know the diameter of the rods. The attached image shows what I had envisioned. That would make the inside dimension of the housing about 2 inches and the knuckle bar 1.375 inches. Does this look plausible?
i havent been on in a while but i came in for a look to see what eveyone is up too and i lightbulb poped up when i seen your pic, lol..

i dont know how available it is (or if its even been thought of by any of ya) but big excavation equiptment use these big a$$ rubber belts, got to be at least 1/2 round if i remember correctly, that get streched out and need to be replaced.. we use to use them as bungee type rubber bands as kids for slingshots (hook them to 2 trees across the driveway pull tommy back in the wagon and let him go type of sillyness) they would be good i think for you drawing cut into rods.. just my 2 cents

also i would try and dimple the 4 flat sides of the center bar in order to get a tighter fit..
