Default Hanging a boat fender with no cleat or rail

Where I would like/need to hang a fender on my boat when docking at a pier, there is no cleat or rail. Short of installing a cleat, any suggestions on what to use to hang a fender?

Edited to add, I don't have a rod holder where I would like to hang the fender.

FENDERGRIP®

I use these. I attach the rope to the fender, adjust the length and then tie it to the pole. When I'm docking, i pull out the fender already attached to the pole, stick it in the rod holder and that's it....Now, if you don't have rod holders, thats another story>>>>>

It would be nice if they made one with a cleat.

it has a loop. Clove hitch usefulness hasn’t expired. Hardly any more difficult than a cleat hitch.

Get a PVC pipe that fit your rod holder, pass the rope from the fender thru a cap that fits the pipe.

A picture of the location where you want the fender on the boat would help.
