LOL ahh the SOP term have not heard than for a while.... get one of the carboy handles I love mine just check on them once in a while to make sure it's still nice and tight.... or bre haulers work well too. They're not as fragile as most think but a drop from 5' onto a hard surface can kill it for sure.
remember it;s not plastic and nothing to worry about...
to the OP if you get the 6.5 for a reasonable price bigger is always better for a primary.
Check amazon sometime you can find them preety cheap.
