Trying to twist

i want to create the grey metal, the bar and the round are easy, the twisty is not, i have tried the spin tool but it does not allow me to pull it down and twist at the same time. Which i guess is what it needs to do. I have tried to add loop cuts, but this didn’t help, i have tried to think other ideas but none of them made it past the keyboard! I Guess i could loop cut and twist each piece a little more than the last. Any other ideas, that make sense would be great. alan

Something like this? I extruded two ends from a basic square, rotated the top edges 90 degrees on Z, extruded again, then added some edge bevels along the bends to smooth it out.
