Thus is how I do it. It’s ver similar to wire-guy-wire’s method:

I make a contraction of a heavier wire and wrap two thinner wires around it like so:

insert it thru the bottom if the pot:

What you get inside:

This pot had wire holes so, the contraption wasn’t needed, but I did it for illustration.

I would do it like this.
I have done this before too! Probably a better way.

I make the cotter pine with thicker gauge wire like the above posts. Very simple and very effective. If you tighten and the pin starts to give, use copper or a higher mm of aluminum. My 2 cents.
