Those reflectors are pretty floppy, so I prefer to have (at least) 3 points of contact not just two as shown.

One way is to use a speedlite weight boom (Alu), set horizontally - provides 2 points, using 'Justin' clamps.

Justin clamps are something every photographer needs.

Here is my DIY version made with extra umbrella clamps I had.  You can use any kind of clamp you want as long as it has an appropriate hole or you can drill a hole in the handle.  The spigot can be male or female, whatever you have extra.  Standard 1/4" x 20 bolt or cap nut.
