Default impossible to reach the hatchback handholds

My wife is 4'11" and finds it impossible to reach the hatchback handholds in our 2017 Prius Prime Advanced to pull the hatchback closed

What can we do to solve this problem, i.e. is there someplace on the hatchback to where we could attach a length of rope or something else that would hang down far enough for her to reach it and pull down the hatchback that way without impeding the closing of the hatchback, or some device that could be installed or some other solution?

Please advise. Thanks.

You are on the right track. A strap might be needed.
Ask a dealer or two in your area.
Hopefully they have run across this problem before.

Don't know if it will help any but you don't HAVE to use the "handholds" to close the hatch......if you can get ahold of something else to start the lowering process.
