Balancing the bass clarinet

I've been playing the Bb clarinet for a long time. A few ago, I bought a bass clarinet. Just one question: how do you balance the bass clarinet (other than the thumb rest) when playing the throat tones?

You can also get the thumb rest moved to a more comfortable position, get a larger thumb rest, or have a second "hole" for strap hook added. I don't like the "move" idea because it leaves the screw holes there. Well, I suppose a sufficiently motivated repair tech could fix that. It's also possible to have some modification to the neck.

I switched between peg and strap for a long while and never became completely happy with either.
