Fashion a wardrobe bar?

I've got two wardrobe boxes... without the metal bar to hang the clothes on. What's the best way to fashion a bar from which to hang my clothes in these boxes for my upcoming move?

I hang all of my clothes, so being able to use a wardrobe box
is a big plus. No stores around me carry just the metal bar
- they sell them along with the boxes, which I'd prefer not to buy again unless I have to. They're very expensive, and I'm only going to be moving about five miles away, so it seems like a waste of money.
I've been thinking about what might be the best way to hang clothes in this box. Rope? An adjustable closet or window rod? A dowel? Something else I'm not thinking of? And if I use an adjustable rod or a dowel, how can I ensure that it stays put?
I'd really like the solution to be sturdy, inexpensive, and not take too many hours to construct. Thanks very much for your help.
