I have a pack of grab handles from Precision.
I have some 0.45mm brass wire.
I have a 0.5mm drill bit.
All I needed was a couple of evenings to spend drilling holes and supergluing the brass bits on the side of the DMU.
The job was fiddly and seemed to go on forever, but eventually, it was over. There is a definite reason I don't like building passenger rolling stock. Far too much effort required to fit things that need to be nicely in line or the model will look wrong.
Another handy hint. If your superglue is old and not setting properly, throw it in the bin and get some new stuff. Don't rely on kicker to make it set. I know this, but I never really learn.
