Am not sure what you mean by the fold down drawer thing. Take a 5/16 nut to your local welding shop and have them weld a loop or handle of your liking on it....

What you could do is mount a folding drawer handle to a peice of flat steel or aluminum then have it tapped for 5/16 so it replaces the nut.

Cut a slot on 2 sides of nut in pic. Install d-ring, and install plug on top to lock d-ring in place...

Why don't you just drill a hole to that threaded piece and just install a simple key ring, that would make it simple and no need of welding, just need a drill and some key rings and you would be good to go.

Drill a hole in the threaded rod and attach a key ring. Then use the key ring and loop a rope through it. Handle DONE!
