Default IK problems with a TSM2 rig

Hi everyone,

I started using The Setup Machine 2 as I wanted to quickly get animating and so far so good, only problem is I don't 100% understand the rig. I've got to a certain point in a short animation where I want my character to grab and tug on this pole but I can't work out how to do that with the rig TSM has created! I understand it has something to do with switching between FK and IK in the arms but that's about all I know. Please could someone have a look at my file to point me in the right direction?

The link to the file (maya 8.5) is:

Many many thanks in advance!
Simon :-)
