Trailer 'handle'

Is there a simple bolt on handle that I can fix to the front of the trailer, behind the hitch, to help pull the trailer up the beach?

Not bolt on but i made a tee piece from 25mm box section about 1m long then on the other end i welded a standard 50mm tow ball .Drop it under the hitch and pull away.

We bought one of these. Makes life easier and cheap enough not to bother making one. Around 9 at trailer centre, or 15 on eBay

I got one of these and it's really good. I can pull my 6.2 and trailer around no problems
