As there kettle empties, there can be quite a bit of weight on the bag. I wouldn't go with a rubber band.

The bag could fall in. I think a better second alternative is string.

I used the Dip tube from a keg and run it through the handles of my keggle, when I'm done I slide it out and it fits in the keggle. Sweet Cheap and Stainless Steel

There's a lot of strain on it. Wait till you make a big IPA.

I had the bolts and switched to a copper pipe through it. I like the pipe a LOT better.

Just spend the 2 bucks on the big hose clamp and never worry again. Buy once, cry once.
